VEGAN CINNAMON APPLE ROLLS WITH SALVIA+LIMONE AND TWIGG STUDIOS (V+, ChF)

Two weeks ago I had the joy of working on not one, but TWO collaborations with some of the best food bloggers I know. First, at the start of the week I invited Aimee R. from Wallflower Kitchen into my home and together we made these fluffy vegan pancakes. (Sooooo yummy!) Then, later that same week Silvia from Salvia+Limone and Aimee T. from Twigg Studios popped by to bake today's insanely yummy vegan apple cinnamon buns.

Those of you who read the blog regularly or follow me on instagram will know that Silvia, Aimee T. and I baked together once before earlier this year when we created this vegan matcha pistachio tres leches cake. So gorgeous, right?! We promised one another that very day we'd meet and bake together again and true to our word, we did!

SUPER FLUFFY VEGAN PANCAKES AND SEASONAL FIGS (V+, ChF, NF) WITH AIMEE FROM WALLFLOWER KITCHEN

If you are a regular reader of my blog or follow me on instagram, then you know I adore hanging out with fellow food blogging friends. In fact cooking and baking with other women who love food as much as I do may just be my most favourite part of blogging. And last week I got extra lucky because I had the chance to create vegan magic in the kitchen with Aimee R. from Wallflower Kitchen and then, a few days later, with Aimee T. from Twigg Studios and Silvia from Salvia + Limone. BLISS! 

If you don't know already, Aimee R. is not just 'any' vegan blogger. Nope! Apart from being breath-takingly beautiful, super duper sweet AND an awesome baker, she's also the successful cookbook author of Coconut Milk Icecream, a book dedicated to making creative and tasty vegan ice creams. Oh and she's always saying I don't look my age, meaning I'm MEGA fond of her and will never turn down an opportunity to bake with her ;).

VEGAN BUCKWHEAT PORRIDGE WITH SPICED PLUMS + A COOKING APP GIVEAWAY! (V+, ChF, GF, NF)

These last few weeks, well months really, have been a whirlwind of craziness and this blog post right here is yet another example of the unexpected twists and turns I never imagined possible. See there are a few blogs out there that I am TOTALLY obsessed with. Like, big crush obsessed; like I follow them like a crazy stalker obsessed, like I loose my breath every single time they post something on instagram obsessed. That's because these bloggers produce images and recipes that just move me in ways I can't even put into words. And sadly my blog doesn't have emojis cuz they might do a better job at expressing my feelings than a collection of random sentences ever could. 

Berlin based Susann and Yannic who you might know as KRAUTKOPF are two bloggers who firmly fall into this 'I'm obsessed with their blog' category. And if you have a quick glimpse at their instagram page you will totally understand what I'm on about. Hence when they contacted me to try out their vegetarian cooking app because they were interested in my feedback, I practically choked on my avo toast. Surely, this couldn't be? I didn't even know they had clocked that I was stalking them, thought I'd covered my tracks real good, but somehow they did know I existed and moreover they wanted my input. So after double checking that they'd not made a mistake and contacted the wrong blogger (I mean, these things happen, right?) and drinking some water to shift that piece of bread out of my throat, I said HELL YEAH!

FOOD PHOTOGRAPHY BACKDROPS PART 2

Hi everyone! I hope you enjoyed PART 1 of the food photography backdrops series as this week I bring you PART 2! To keep the blog post as short and informative as possible, I haven't included a recipe today. Sorry. But I'll be back with a stunning recipe next time. Is that ok? Cool ;)! Ok, so let's quickly move on to two of my most favourite food photography backdrop options EVER, shall we? Fabrics and metals...

1. Fabrics
Cost: low/medium/high
Effort: low/medium/high
Storage: easy/medium/a tad more complicated
Availability: 10/10

For those of you who have been following me for a while on instagram, you'll know I'm OBSESSED with fabrics. In fact you'll be hard pressed to find an image in which I don't use fabrics. That's because I love the look, feel and texture of fabrics so, so much and believe they often add the missing ingredient to a shot.
