Scotch Eggs

Scotch Eggs have always been a favourite snack food of mine – I’ll eat a Scotch Egg at a gourmet restaurant or from a manky old petrol garage. I’m not fussy. I love ’em! They’re the perfect food for any time of the day and are perfect for picnics! But, for me, you can’t beat making a Scotch Egg at home as you can tailor them how you want. I…

Vegan Cherry & Coconut Flapjacks

I do love a good flapjack, as I think most people do, but a lot of them are frequently made with butter and that’s not good for our Vegan friends that don’t do moo.
