Aliciouslyvegan: Birthday brunch at Home Made

Home Made first showed up in my Facebook feed some time late last year and I immediately put it on top of my “places to try” list: a cute little café serving vegan (soy free!) food lovingly prepared by the two friendly ladies who own the cafe. I also liked the fonts on their website Continue reading Aliciouslyvegan: Birthday brunch at Home Made

Aliciouslife: Balcony garden – How are we coming along?

Since sowing my first seeds for 2015 on the last day of February, a lot has happened in my little nursery: Some seeds have grown into little plants, some have not. Generally, the tomatoes seem sturdier than the rest and so far have been the most successful, while my chili and capsicum varieties have mostly died.

Aliciouslyvegan: Guacamole

Being a lustful lover of all things avocado, guacamole has been a fundamental staple of my diet ever since I first gave it a go. For me, the avocado has to be creamy with chunks of tomato give it texture and an ample amount of garlic and different sorts of pepper spice it up while fresh lime juice is responsible for that tangy aftertaste.

Aliciouslyvegan: Wild Garlic

Along with the first flowers telling us that winter is over and, yes, spring is finally here, fresh leaves of wild garlic have been featuring on Instagram for the last week. For a lover of all things garlic like myself this meant that wild garlic had to be found and harvested asap. Because I’m a nice person (yes, that’s fishing for compliments here) I’ll tell you my favourite spots to find it. Continue reading Aliciouslyvegan: Wild Garlic

Aliciouslife: My Balcony Garden – Plans for 2015

As the days are getting longer (3 more minutes of sunshine each day during February!), brighter and finally (!) slightly warmer, my gardener’s hands are itching to start planting things (anything really) again.

Therefore, next weekend I will start the outdoor season by sawing tomato, capsicum and chili seeds – derived from last year’s yield – as well as some spinach into little containers and put these behind the glass wall separating kitchen from balcony. This will guarantee them getting maximum sun (the balcony faces south) while being sheltered from the elements (i.e. inside). Continue reading Aliciouslife: My Balcony Garden – Plans for 2015

Aliciouslyvegan: Raspberry chia pudding

While my Instagram feed was full of bloggers posting their latest chia-creation, raving about how delicious they were, I would hesitantly make chia gel to stir into my muesli or put in my smoothie. It didn’t at all excite me though. Only recently did I come across a recipe that caught my attention because it sounded a little different and like it might actually work for me. After a few minor adjustments, it did and I’m very much in love. Continue reading Aliciouslyvegan: Raspberry chia pudding

Aliciouslyvegan: Bliss balls

With the onset of veganism as a more common concept of life over the last couple of years, raw recipes have also made their way into the everyday kitchen. My everyday kitchen at least.

By today, I’m not at all convinced why I should forgo a hot cup of soup, tea or – heaven forbid – coffee, but a year ago I couldn’t imagine myself choosing not to consume anything derived from animals either.

Something I saw on a multitude of blogs were bliss balls Continue reading Aliciouslyvegan: Bliss balls
