‘Tuna’ Melt and Cherry Almond Cookies

This is a fried sandwich from vegan Comfort food. It’s trying to be a bit of an American staple, tuna melt sandwich. The ‘tuna’ is made from tempeh, veganaise, fried onion, mustard etc. Then there’s a generous pile of the amazing Daiya cheese before it is fried in butter.


These are cherry and almond cookies from Vegan Cookies Invade your Cookie Jar. I made them for colleagues. I am trying to plough through the last pantry ingredients, so the dried cherries are now all gone!

Good Cat News and Bad Cat News with Banana Everything Cookies

I made these cookies which were from Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar. I made them as a gift for the people who work in our local park. One of the staff told me the other day, that the cat that I have been feeding in the park has been run over. I wanted to  thank them for looking after her. I feel so sad about her death. She was such a  young cat and it breaks my heart to think she suffered and that she was alone. I also feel an element of guilt. I feel I should have taken Hatchback in, or found her a home, some place that is safe.


So that was the sad cat news. The good cat news is that I found a home for this little cat. She has been hanging out in our school playground early in the morning and I have been feeding her. I thought for a while that she must be a lost pet, but I found out that she had been hanging around the area for a while. Anyway, one of my colleagues has adopted her. I hope the new home works out for this little cat.


Chewy Chocolate and Raspberry Cookies


Here are some delicious cookies that I baked today. I am going on a residential trip to Khao Yai, and some cookies have been requested, so I have started baking up batches of bits and bobs today. I went on the same residential field trip last year, and found the food provided to be a little bit appalling, so I am making sure that I don’t starve by preparing food that I will not only eat, but also enjoy. It is also a good opportunity to show my colleagues how tasty plant foods can be.

These were so easy to make and are the perfect cookies to have with some non-dairy milk. I substituted half of the all purpose flour with Arrowhead Mills Wholewheat Pastry Flour as I am experimenting with adding more fibre into baked goods. In truth, there was a bit of a chewy graininess at the end, but they were still pretty good.

The recipe is from Veganomicon.
