Well hello there dear friends. It’s been a while (a longer while than I had anticipated but hey, such is life). I won’t blabber on about why I have been AWOL and instead just get on with telling you all about a very good pizza experience that I recently had. So let me tell you about Dough Bath – A Review.
Residents of Bath will probably have heard of Dough by now. Nestled in the famous Corridor, one can smell the soft aroma of freshly baked pizza from many metres away. Dough’s mission is to bring Bath the finest quality ingredients, cooked simply at the best possible value. Their love of pizza in its purest form that led them to explore new innovations that they believe haven’t been seen in UK restaurants before. With bases such as kamut, turmeric and hemp, it’s easy to see why Dough is so popular. They’ve also got 4 different gluten-free bases.
We popped down a few weeks ago to try out their new vegan offerings. I was immediately drawn to ‘V for Vegan’, with vegan cheese, beetroot carpaccio, crispy parsnip, capers, yellow courgette and rocket sauce on kamut dough. C went for the ‘Vegetariana’, without the mozzarella. Both pizzas were large portions, and we didn’t have to wait long for them to arrive. The ‘V for Vegan’ was utterly delicious, with a generous helping of all toppings, but I especially loved the crunchy addition of parsnip crisps scattered on top. The vegan cheese was also some of the nicest I’ve had on a pizza. The ‘Vegetariana’ was also a good, but we both said that my choice was the top pick.
To finish we had some vegan ice cream, which was a good end to the meal.

The service we received was lovely, we felt relaxed and at home during our meal. The restaurant started to get busy and I could see all customers were getting the same friendly service that we had.
Vegan or not, I would highly recommend you get your bottoms down the Dough and sample some of their delights. We’ll be returning pretty soon that’s for sure!

I have been putting off posting my favourite vegan chilli recipe for a while. I made it on a slow, rainy afternoon a while back. A staple recipe that I have been making and tweaking for a few years, never thinking of it as a glorious, blog worthy recipe. Yet I make it often and enjoy it a little more every time, why wouldn’t I share it with you all? Then the heatwave hit the UK and the last thing we would want to be reading about let alone eating is a chilli, so it sat here in my drafts for a little while. I used to be quite against chilli growing up. Read more
I’m sitting here on the sofa, it’s late May, I can see the sun slowly setting and the sky changing colours. My belly is full with a hearty weeknight meal. The cats are twirling around my legs, purring softly. The birds are singing their evening melodies. I take some moments to be calm, and still, and breathe. In this world of terror and heartache, make time to take a step back, take a deep breath, and remind yourself that you are here. We’ve had some terrible news here in the UK today, and my thoughts are with those who have lost someone they love. Do not let this hate beat our love. Love will overcome, it has to. Read more
Popping in to give you lovely lot a bonus recipe to celebrate this Easter break. I present you Gluten Free Chocolate Quinoa Nests. Think a healthier version of chocolate rice crispy cakes. Because what better way to celebrate a few extra days off than with chocolate? I’ve loaded these up with pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds and a little coconut oil. Meaning these little bites of awesomeness have the added punch of amino acids, protein, magnesium and omega 3’s! Hip hip hooray for Easter ey?! Read more
Spring (well, we like to call it Summer here in the UK) has been dancing around in full force for the last few weeks. I have relished the time outdoors, exploring new places, watching the trees become green again and breathing in the crisp air. Time outdoors keeps me sane, and I often forget how important it is to me. Winter can make me cranky and irritable, Spring gives me hope again. We are lucky enough to live right next to some woods, where we often go for a quick explore. If you need me, I’ll be wandering. Read more
Guess what, we (in the UK) are into British Summer Time. Longer evenings, alfresco dinners and sunshine! The online downside to this is winter veg will be out of season. I thought I’d make the most of these last wonderful squashes that are around, and whizz up this roasted squash hummus. Dips are my go to, I like to make sure there’s always a pot of some variation of hummus in the fridge. Ready and waiting for when I get in from work and need something stat, ready to dollop on my packed lunch to give me some energy through the day. Read more
Just a fleeting message this week to say hello and sorry for being rather sporadic recently. Life’s been a bit chaotic and I realised I was pulling myself in a few too many different directions. Last week’s down time was spent properly resting, and catching up with my loved ones.
Growing up in the Davy house, Pancake Day was a big event. I remember coming home and watching as my Mum whipped up a huge bowl of batter, ready to fry. We would watch with eager eyes as she carefully spooned out the mix, whirling it around the pan to get a nice, even pancake. We would take turns trying to flip the pancake, many ended up on the floor, some a wrinkled mess, one even stuck to the ceiling once, but most would be good. She would stack them up on a plate and store them in a warm oven until it was time to eat. As we were a family of 6, it took a while to make enough for everyone. I remember spooning golden syrup onto the warm pancakes, rolling them in a hurry and shoving them into my mouth. On this one day we were allowed to have a four course meal of sweet pancakes, only choosing to introduce savoury options many years later. Read more
Hey folks. Here I am! How’s things? I know things have been a little quiet around here, I won’t bore you with the details because we’ve all got our own things going on! Things happen, ya know. I read THIS great article over the weekend, and it hit home a lot. So I’ll keep it short and sweet tonight, so we can all have some happy heart time with our loved ones, plus I’ve got an overdue hot date with my sofa this evening. Hold onto those happy hearts.

I have been vegetarian on and off for around 10 years. In that time we have had a few Christmases. My sister and brother are now both vegetarian, so it is a very veggie Christmas affair. Every December, my mum will send us a message asking what we want to eat on the big day. We will ping her some recipes over and then make a selection from that. I would happily have all the trimmings, without a show stopper. This year I fancy something different, I have yet to pick from my every extending shortlist. I’ve gathered here some of my favourite recipes, some show stoppers, some easy makes, to please meat free friends far and wide. I’m sticking savoury here, because there’s enough festive desserts on the internet to keep you going for another 100 years or so. Enjoy the festive season friends, may yours be merry and bright.
