Vegan Chickpea Curry

When Mr. Cooke and I decided to go vegan about a week ago we were worried because we love our food. We were worried that while the advantages of veganism would speak for themselves, that the flavor of the food would not.

Then I went searching for a vegan curry and this Vegan Chickpea curry was one of the top Google options that popped up.

We were instantly hooked!

We made it the first night with broccoli, and the second time we added courgettes instead. We found that the courgettes were a better addition to this particular curry. If you like your curry wetter remove from heat soon after adding the veg at the end once they are cooked.

Tip: Add poppadoms to your meal to enhance the flavor and experience of the curry!

If you want to try it yourself you can find it here from the lovely people over at Hurry the Food Up. They give great vegetarian and vegan recipes for people who don’t have a lot of time to spend cooking.


Best Moment Award


  1. Repost this (done!)
  2. Acceptance speech (video or typed)
  3. Pass the award onto others!

I am sorry but I am really not good looking enough to show myself accepting an award, even in my little corner of WordPress, and so I will be WRITING my acceptance speech. Here it goes!

I have no idea why I would win a ‘Best Moment’ award. I don’t really have many great moments, I just give out a lot and lose sight of my goals. Maybe that’s why I have been given this award, because I don’t hide behind a mask of greatness, I show what’s really going on with me and my writing, please correct me if I’m wrong. Thank you though for giving it to me. I know that a lot of these things are pretty random and people are following others just to find someone else to add to their list, but I’m hoping I’ve entertained a few of you, even one of you, with my ramblings!

I ain’t so great with acceptance speeches, so I’ll just leave it at that, and of course, thank you to my Mom, my Dad, God…. Everyone…. and WordPress. (Humour, don’t worry.)

And now for those beautiful people with amazing moments to share. My lists are never long so I’m gonna stick with that!


Books, I Rather Them, But…

I am not an e-reader kinda girl. I love me a great big book, I love the feeling of the pages, the excitement of turning a page, the smell of the books…

I just really love books, ok?

So, I went through all the books I have in my Granny’s house to date. All of them. I did tell you guys I’d give you a list of the books I’ve read so far this year, so here they are:

1) The Trouble With Weddings

2) Blood Beast

3) Death’s Shadow

4) Wolf Island

5) Dark Callings

6) Hell’s Heroes

7) Pandemonium

8) Sherlock Holmes, a Study in Scarlet

At the moment I am reading The Golden Compass. But it’s one of those 3-in-1 books.


This book is enormous. Like really. I have stopped taking my laptop to college it’s so heavy.

There’s over 1,000 pages in it (don’t keep me to that, it’s in my bag and I’m not bothered taking it out to count the pages!

So, even though I do seriously LOVE books, it’s a bit of a pain sometimes when you’re close to breaking your back it’s so heavy!

But in this case it’s worth it; I really love this series, I only read the first one because it was on my course in first year, so I have started them all over again. I really do love them! Pullman is quite the genius!
