My dear friend who hates all things vegan and constantly renounces me for only “eating air” said these were actually half decent and that I should share the recipe. Much as I hate to say he’s right, doing so means I get to bake and eat them again, so, yeah.

On those kinds of days, I eat pie. And, it just so happens it’s National Pie Week! So, thank … More Vegetable pie
Scrolling through my posts recently, I realised how gross my photos made my food look.
