Around the World in 80 Dates | The Bahamas

Around the World in 80 Dates is a blog series designed to take me (and Tom) out of our comfort zones and force us to cook food from other countries. Each week, we use a random country generator to tell us where we will be cooking from. We have to cook at least one dish from this country, the more traditional the better. We alternate who’s cooking each week, this week is Tom’s turn. I said it last week, but I’ll reiterate because this is worth saying twice: trying to cook vegan while trying to cook from other cultures ain’t easy. The wiki page for most cuisines is just a long list of animals. Bahamian cuisine is no different, it’s incredibly rich in seafood and pork. Like, incredibly incredibly. It being Tom’s turn to direct the operation this week, it was he that had to trawl the internet for a suitable recipe. He discovered swiftly enough that macaroni cheese is a huge mainstay of the Bahamian dinner table, ever present for weeknight meals and buffet …

Happy Sunday

I’ve spent a lot of the week being one of those insufferable women that goes out dressed for entirely the wrong season and then complains of the cold. I’m not even sorry, I like my tiny brown suede spring jacket and I’ll wear it whenever I please even if the blood in my wrists freezes solid – I’m fairly sure that this has actually happened once or twice.

Did we talk about the Fempire Podcast (since renamed Ladygang because copyright) already? Listening to badass, sexy, successful women is a very productive thing to do during your working week. Promise. In the past couple of weeks I finally reached a healthy BMI according to the NHS calculator. I’m mulling over writing a post about my as yet undocumented journey in that arena, if you’d be interested to hear about it.. let me know. I’ve decided that dancing like a …

Vegan Cream Cheese (Sheese) Review on Cate in the Kitchen

So Just How Bad Is Vegan Cream Cheese..? (AKA a Sheese Review)

You may remember that earlier this month, for Veganuary research purposes, I was a very brave girl and put vegan pizza cheese in my body. It did not set my world on fire. However, following that post, I was flooded with recommendations from long time vegans who had a favourite brand, so I felt it was my duty to delve into some of them. This is the first of those.. Sheese is heralded by almost everyone that’s recommended it as a bit of a wonder kid that tastes exactly like cream cheese. It’s a soya product that contains coconut oil, and the ingredients list is inoffensive, so I wasn’t quite as scared of this as I was of VioLife pizza cheese, but I was absolutely still scared. Let’s just dive right in, shall we.. Appearance Let’s say challenging. If I were to squint at it, I’d be like “wow, you know that really just looks like cream cheese, good call internet I applaud you”. But if I look it right in the eye, in the stone …
