Alpro caramel dessert

Evening all, I’ve been busy making Christmas presents and cleaning, so business as usual. Today I’m going to review Alpro’s caramel dessert. I’ve tried every one of these little pudding tubs except the gingerbread variety, […]

Bumper Violife review

Happy Sunday morning!

The clocks went back and I’ve been up since 8am. I had a particularly annoying day yesterday which ended with me accidentally spraying glue in my face while making Christmas presents. Awful. Anyway, today I thought I would post about my experience with Violife.

The first variety I tried was the classic block.

My first impressions were that it was soft, very easy to cut and had a mild taste. It wasn’t rubbery or starchy like other vegan cheeses that I’ve tried but I wouldn’t say it had a particularly cheesy taste. The first meal I had this in was a toasted sandwich with Marmite but the Marmite overpowered the taste of the Violife, despite this the texture was nice and it melted decently. The second meal I tried the block in was grated on top of a vegan pasta with garlic olive butter. Again the cheese melted well and added a nice texture to the pasta which I had been missing from my dishes.

Linda McCartney sausages

Afternoon everyone,

Sorry I didn’t post yesterday, I had a long day of cleaning and getting ready for making my Christmas DIY presents. Today I’m going to review another product for you, this time it’s the original Linda McCartney sausages.

I remember having these when I was younger in breakfasts at restaurants and I never liked them but I decided that I would now give them another go. I shallow fried the sausages along with some frozen hash browns (because my oven is broken) and then added a tin of beans with my own seasonings, then grated Violife (which I will review soon) on top. I also had a bit of homemade butternut squash and sweet potato mash with my first plate. The result was a very tasty breakfast dish, but how were the sausages?

Graze Wednesdays Part 7

Morning!

It’s Wednesday again so time for another Graze review, this week I received the Louisiana wild rice and beans, the cocoa and vanilla protein flapjack, beach bum, and dark chocolate rocky road.

The first box I opened was the Louisiana wild rice and beans, which is wild rice sticks and chilli broad beans. I liked this combination, the wild rice sticks are beautifully simple and I really liked the wild rice inside. The chilli broad beans are a perfect pairing because this is where the flavour comes from, the beans are crunchy, spicy and delicious.
