1st Wedding Anniversary!


Yesterday was mine and Kyles 1st wedding anniversary so to celebrate we went out with our bridesmaides for some food.
I had been going to Franks Bar for food and drinks since it opened, but since I went vegan I have only been able to have the occasional vegan special or the hummus platter, but we heard a rumour that Franks Bar now makes hot chocolates with vegan cream and marshmallows!
Once seated we then also found a full english vegan breakfast was available! And it was delicious!
It had vegan black pudding, saute potatoes, mushroom, tomatoes, toast, vegan margarine and herby beans!
The hot chocolate was delicious and I think they used Freedom Marshmallows and lovely vegan spray cream. (maybe soyatoo?)
I thoroughly recommend it! I will now be returning to Franks Bar more often and will now add it once again, to some of my favourite places to eat!

    Norwich Eco Awards!


    A few weeks ago we were lucky enough to attend the Norwich Eco Awards where we were awarded a Highly commended Certificate for our dedication to being a green and eco friendly business! Just some of the things we do to be greener are; all our gas and electric comes from Ecotricity, we use compostable cartons and paper bags for our cakes mostly from recycled sources, we use local and fair trade ingredients and recycle and compost all scraps and packaging from ingredients used. There is still alot more to do but we try every day to be more planet friendly in our kitchen! 
    We had such a great time at the event and met some wonderful inspirational businesses, charities and individuals! Can't wait for next year!

    Yorkshire Puddings!




    There are a lot of yorkshire pudding recipes out there but this is my version for a crisp buttery and light yorkshire pudding! Enjoy with all the trimmings or on their own (I won't tell!)

    Ingredients:
    2 Cups flour
    2 level tsp of baking powder
    2 tablespoons of ground flax 
    A Pinch of salt 
    2/3 Cup or Enough milk to make a smooth runnyish batter.

    Mix everything in a bowl until there are no lumps and it is a loose batter consistency  Pop your yorkshire tin in the oven at 190-200c with a dollop of margarine or olive oil in each yorkshire cup until boiling hot. Remove from the oven (carefully) and immediately pour in the batter evenly into each yorkshire cup in the tray. Pop back in the oven for 10-15 mins until golden brown.  
    Enjoy!
