Finally It’s Happened To Me!!

hello lovelies

Finally That Vegan Lady hit the Marrickville Organic Markets running, last Sunday 20th November 2016. We’ll be there every Sunday from now on. We’ve been placed in the Hall, which even though off the Market main thoroughfare, is a very cool and groovy vibe, with lots of vendors inside.

Within the first hour we had sold out of our Citrus Glaze cake (a yummy organic orange and lemon cake) img_3246and had three cupcakes to choose from:

Salted Caramel; Lime in de Coconut and my version of the Persian Love cake which is pistachio and rose.deeeeeeeeeeelish.

Also sold out very quickly of the Leek and Mushroom quiche and the sweet potato and barley roll. unfortunately I’m unable to use electricity in the hall and wasn’t able to keep them warm , but as they say, if your food doesn’t taste good cold, it probably didn’t taste so great hot!! It all happened so fast, I didn’t take photos of everything!

I’m also making Christmas cakes and Christmas fruit mince tarts to order!

Also  few weeks ago I won Best in Show, Best Professional Entry, Best Cupcake and Best Preserve at the Annual Bobby Goldsmith Bake Off. the cakes I won with were the Persian Love Cupcakes and the Jam is Rhubarb, Blood Orange and Ginger, now available at the Marrickville Markets

We All Want A Little Treat Every Now And Then.. right???

We do, we all want a little treat every now and then. That’s one of the reasons I started my business, That Vegan Lady, specialising in plant based cupcakes and quiches. I saw a niche in the market.

My biggest hurdle was to work on recipes that would work for me, to make  plant based cupcakes that I would want to buy. using the least amount of processed ingredients that I could. My family and friends ate and ate and ATE my cupcakes.

Now my new challenge is to create cupcakes without sugar and still make them delectable delicious and sellable!!!

Wish me luck and stay tuned!!!!

 

 

Orange Is The New Black

Orange Is The New Black

I am so in love with oranges right now.

They seem like such a summer fruit right? all that yummy juice running down your chin on a hot summers day?

Autumn here in Sydney, sees orange trees all over the city suburbs laden with fruit. On my walk the other day there was an orange tree so laden with fruit hanging over onto the pavement, so I picked a sneaky couple and brought them home.

They were so, so delicious.

But the most amazing fruit of ALL in season right now is

heres what wikipedia tells us about them

I’m going to go buy one so I can scent my cupboards with them.

I saw them at the fruit market, they are a citron and smell divine.

Great plant based food ideas for Autumn

Autumn is a great time for us to help increase our  families and friends  awareness of the benefits of a plant based diet, by making some awesome autumn dishes that provide all the essential vitamins and minerals we need to keep us strong and healthy.

invite your pals around for a night of Uno or some other fun game and serve them up this tasty soup that will have them begging you for the recipe.

you will need to soak the beans and the lentils overnight or for at least a couple of hours.
