Pregnancy Vlog Weeks 12-16 (2nd baby)

So you may have guessed from the title that I’m pregnant! This is our 2nd child and we are due mid March. I did mean to do pregnancy updates from week 8 but I was just too ill to do anything but the bare minimum!

So here is the vlog and I’ve also included our pregnancy annoument picture too 🙂

I’m currently 21 weeks now so I’ll be filming weeks 17-21 shortly.

Vegan Sweets (UK)

With Halloween just around the corner I thought I’d compile a list of vegan sweets. Some of these are accidentally vegan and others marked as vegan. This list is also handy if you want to get some treats for a birthday party or party bag!

Vegan Spiced Pumpkin Soup

Tis the season of the pumpkin! Such a wonderful ingredient. This soup recipe uses canned pumpkin because I have some cans knocking about in the cupboard but you can roast your own pumpkin and puree it if you like. Obviously that’s going to take you a bit longer.

Anyway onto this delicious warming and comforting soup!

Vegan “Scallops”

Happy Monday everyone! Today I have an amazing vegan “scallop” recipe for you. This has got to be a new favourite of mine. I can’t get over how good these are! They are also super easy to make.

I had these with a salad for my lunch today but you could create lots of wonderful dishes with these – risottos, pasta dishes, in a creamy white wine sauce….. Perfect for a simple dinner and also for something a bit more special.
