QUICK, EASY, VEGAN PART 3 – As you know from this blog post as well as this one, I'm sharing some quick, easy and delicious vegan recipes on the blog this month seeing we're all in the throws of buying last minute Christmas presents (which we should have bought AGES ago, but let's not go there) and have very little time to spend making complicated meals.
But rest assured that despite its simplicity, this beautiful radish and parsnip soup is utterly delicious, comforting and healthy. It's been made extra special by a secret ingredient called acacia gum. Acacia what?! Chances are you've never heard of it before but I hope today's blog post will change that because it's an ingredients worth knowing about!
NOTE: This blog post is part 11 of my INSTAGRAM SERIES - content all about helping YOU manage your way around instagram. In the INSTAGRAM SERIES I've touched on subjects such as why you're losing followers (and what to do about it), how to grow your instagram following and the one thing no one talks about in food blogging. Just click here to find all the other parts in the series. As for today, I'll talk in detail about the new instagram stories changes and, more importantly, what these changes mean for YOU if you're trying to make it as food blogger or instagram influencer.
Love instagram or not, the one thing no one can call instagram is boring, stagnant or uninventive. Nope, this platform is ALWAYS constantly and continuously reinventing itself, pushing boundaries and thinking outside the box. And the new instagram stories features are - yet again - instagram showing off its innovation and creativity.
After months of plotting l can FINALLY reveal the details of my March 2018 London food styling and food photography group workshop ! Just as in 2017, I will be teaching this workshop from my South East London based home studio where I'll show you how to manouevre your way around your DSLR camera, how to use and manipulate light to create stunning images and how to perfect your composition skills. I'm over the moon to let you know that I'll be joined for session 2 and 3 of this workshop by super talented Silvia from Salvia Limone. Awesome, right!? Want to find out more? Then read on...
QUICK, EASY, VEGAN Part 2 - Hi everyone! As I mentioned in last week's blog post, I'll be sharing some quick and easy vegan recipes on the blog between now and the end of the year just cuz we're all SO busy in the run up to Christmas and the last thing we need is to be stuck in the kitchen, am I right?!
Apart from sharing the recipe for this delicious, healthy and seasonal spiced orange smoothie with you today, I'm also hosting a giveaway of a cookbook entitled NEW YORK CHRISTMAS. It was written by food bloggers and food photographers Liz and Jewels whose lovely recipes will surely get you into the Christmas spirit! Now before you get to hear about how YOU can win yourself a copy, shall I tell you a bit about what the book is like?
QUICK, EASY, VEGAN! Part 1 - May I present you with the best vegan muffins I have EVER made? Now, please don't take my word for it, but instead ask the man and the boy in my life, our neighbours, their children, plus the guys at BBC World Service. See they ALL gulped these muffins down like there was no tomorrow and begged me to make more! I made 48 in total in the space of a week, insane isn't it?! But it kinda worked for me cuz I hade A LOT of Halloween pumpkin left-overs to use up ;). Know what I'm sayin'!!!
Anyway, I feel this muffin recipe will work really well for those of you celebrating Thanksgiving - as a sort of Thanksgiving breakfast treat kinda thing - as well as those of you who just dig pumpkins, full stop. Once baked, these muffins can be eaten on the spot or frozen to be enjoyed throughout the weeks to come. Whatever works for you!
