Carefully selected ingredients are what make great food. However, I believe it isn’t just about the ingredients; it’s about everything that creates a meal – from the tools used to prepare the ingredients to the homely pans where the food is cooked and the beautiful plates it is being served on.

With the holiday season merrily approaching, much of the planning and preparation no doubt revolves around food, whether simple or elaborate. While most of the time I keep the holiday meals relatively simple, I do look forward to the dessert part. Most would agree that dessert is really the much exciting course of any meal.
Before summer tails to an end, there are a few treats that you cannot miss if you have not already tried them. Not that these treats wouldn’t be exhilarating enough with a piece of autumn pie though! For a long time, my all-time favourite ice cream flavour has been chocolate but Salted Caramel Cluster by
More than eight years ago, when I embarked into this vegan lifestyle with some slight trepidation, I did not have in view where all this would lead me nor what changes it would incur. I became vegan out of compassion after watching videos on animal abuse and crying myself to sleep on that night. The

Imagine my thrill when I learnt that I had won a giveway for a Lippy Girl Vegocentric Organic Vegan Lipstick along with a tube of the Extra Virgin Lip Gloss!

Rutabaga (or swede as I first came to know of this vegetable when I was living in Europe) is one root vegetable that is probably quite underused despite it being cheap and available year-round.

I cannot help but wonder whether
When it comes to vegan snacks, it can become quite a challenge in my case with my nuts-and-seeds allergy. While I do often make my own tasty homemade snacks, sometimes I just want the convenience of a store-bought one. So, when Popcorn Indiana offered to send on a sample of their popcorn for my review,
Video demo of a Koi Fish watercolor painting done with vegan watercolor from Colors of Nature. 100% vegan environmentally-friendly set of colors. The movement of watercolour pigments gliding freely with the water on paper has always captured my fascination of this painting style. Such effortlessness but yet a challenge to produce a believable 2D scenery
