Vegan Pancakes

Flipping ‘eck Pancake day is soon here, already. Thought I’d try something difference and fancy this year with these amazing vegan pancakes, griddled cinnamon plums and toasted walnuts. The plums were bought from a recent visit to Borough Market, which is a must see when in London.

Cat Photo of the Day: Rory here making an effort this Valentines in his bow tie. His plans tonight will be marking his territory in the garden, eating a measly amount of cat food then demanding chicken and finally sleeping but stretching so long he takes up the whole bed so you’re legs can’t fit anywhere. He’s his own Valentine, for sure.

Festive Stem Ginger Fudge

Warming and sweet, these are my stem ginger festive fudge treats, given to friends and family during the Christmas season. They should come with a warning as they are very more-ish and easy to make.

Cat Photo of the Day: Hold on, I know what you’re thinking. This is quite clearly not a cat. Nope, this is in fact Cilla the squirrel who will wait at the window for nuts and you will give Cilla nuts because no one can say no to Cilla!
