Cats Kitchen Banana Vanilla Smoothie

This is simple and delicious, healthy and  nutritious! What  more could you want?! Well, it’s relatively cheap too!

You could do this with fresh bananas, but I prefer to use the ‘just about to go off’ banana, not quite gone black (you really need to give those over to the sweet treat brigade, with a yummy banana cake or the fabulous caramelised  banana dish served either for breakfast or pudding). 158 more words

Peanut Butter S'more Cookies

Just when I thought it couldn’t be any easier to be vegan, I find Dandies Pumpkin flavoured Marshmellows!  I’m mean, c’mon!!!! Granted, I know Vancouver is a mecca for veganism and it isn’t necessarily as easy to go plant-based, vegan, veg-curious, one part plant, etc, in other parts of the country, North America or the world.  316 more words


Maple Walnut Banana Pancakes

Somehow, sometime, I’m not sure when, making pancakes on Sunday mornings has become a tradition for James and I.  I can’t seem to settle for simple pancakes though, they always have to be a little spruced up.  287 more words
