I’m Laura, and this is my labour of love. You might not usually associate those words with something that’s done for fun, but creating a food blog can be hard work. Often the battle is against myself (well, my camera).
You see, I really started doing this a few years back because I wanted to record the meals I was creating as I learned how to make healthy vegan food taste great.
But more than that, I wanted to give people ideas – and hope.
Because there are a lot of folk out there who think cooking – in general – is too hard to bother with. And that’s before you even mention the v word.
But it really can be as simple and satisfying as realising cashews can be turned into cheese.
Or that a curry – a seriously rich and complex curry – is really just a matter of throwing things into a pan in the right order.
So you’ll find here, usually once a week on a Friday, a new recipe that’ll hopefully make you inspired to try something new; whether you’re vegan, vegetarian, flexitarian, or really just anyone with a pulse and a love of food.
Why only once a week? Don’t other blogs give you four, or maybe even five, new recipes a week?
Because this is my hobby. My outlet for practical creativity. And because writing (for love and money) takes up most of my time.
But nothing really stands alone, so you’ll often find a recipe is really an excuse for me to write about something that makes me nostalgic, or happy, or just in the mood to be descriptive about an adventure at home here in London, or abroad in a pacific northwest forest.
