Honey Sesame Tofu with Vegetables

When I started blogging a few years ago, the number of posts I did every month was enormous. I somehow had the energy and time to do it all. As time passed, I have reduced the number of posts. But that meant that the quality of the dishes and the presentation has improved a lot. But after those first couple of years, last year was a big low in the blog. I was having loads of commitments in my personal life, enjoying life and the events. Then the break seemed to be too long to get back to blogging. Thanks to the support and love from around the world, I am back to being a regular blogger. :-)

French Baguette - Vegan - King Arthur Flour Baguette - Vegan

French Baguette is just a dream come true for me. I have been meaning to make this for ages. You see the problem when you get freshly baked bread for less than £1, you sometimes end up just buying them. I then try breads that are not commonly available or breads baked as part of our baking group - We Knead to Bake. But the dream of just baking my own baguette just got better of me.
