Vegan Supper Club: Fine Dining at Home

Vegan Supper Club #10 | Fine Dining at Home
Though the components of this meal were somewhat haphazardly & randomly decided upon, they came together in such a way that made our simple Saturday night dinner seem sophisticated and restaurant worthy. Yes, this tenth (!!) edition of Chelsea’s & my Vegan Supper Club might go down as one of the best ones yet!
Starter: Super Slaw
For the salad portion of our meal, we made the Super Slaw […]

Mix n Match Dinner Bowls

Recently Mac & I had some friends over for dinner. I didn’t really know what to make, so I ended up whipping up a bunch of things, piling them all together in a bowl, and calling it dinner! Mix n Match Dinner Bowls to be precise!

The above picture was of my leftovers the following day. Don’t worry, we do actually serve food to our friends & guests in proper bowls & plates and not Tupperware!

Whether […]

Post-Vacation Meals – Quick, Easy & Inexpensive! (+ How To!)

When Mac & I got back from Barbados, there was practically nothing left in our fridge. Save for a few apples, a head of cabbage, and some sorry daikon radishes, we didn’t have much to eat! After a quick trip to the grocery store – where I spent less than $14! – I came home to whip up the following:

A/ Quinoa. B/ Mixed Vegetable Quiche. C/ Roasted Tandoori Chickpeas. D/ Sweet Potato & Tomato Stew

It’s not super glamorous, […]

Hiking Barbados | Bath to Bathsheba

For a small island filled with amazing beaches, stunning vistas, and a relaxed ‘island-life’ feel, it might seem a little unusual that Barbados is actually FULL of hiking trails! In fact, the National Trust coordinates and leads organised hikes all over the island several times a week. The turnout can often be more than 100 people!

Mac & I had heard great things about the Bath to Bathsheba hike on the east coast […]

Beautiful Barbados

It had only been 6 months since we had been travelling, but when Mac’s parents asked us if we wanted to join them in beautiful Barbados for a week, we couldn’t say no! The 4 of us stayed in a house near Enterprise Beach (aka Miami Beach) just outside the town of Oistins (on the southern west coast of the island). We spent our days in the sun – the weather was GORGEOUS the whole […]
