Veg Out Lattice Slices Weekly Review

This week I’ve decided to try out the VegOut pastries as my lunches at work, and I have all the details. I thought these would be a good thing to try, because they’re great if you’re in a town centre with an Holland and Barrett, and need a quick go-to bite to eat that you don’t have to fuss about preparing. Or something you can sling in your bag early in the morning for lunch at work or school, or even on a picnic.

I decided to try the three flavours for lattice slice that they had in stock at my local Holland and Barrett, No Chorizo and Mixed Bean, Steakless Bake and No Duck and Hoisin Style Sauce. I’m going to write about them in worst to best order. Continue reading “Veg Out Lattice Slices Weekly Review”

Not My Neighbour Smoothie – A Santa Clarita Diet Recipe

Have you watched any of the new Netflix series – Santa Clarita Diet? I have, and it’s absolutely brilliant.

It features Drew Barrymore as an average American mother, who suddenly starts craving human flesh. It’s fantastic, and I love it’s light, breezy air, and the way her family deals with her new ‘condition’.

Today I’ve decided to branch out into drinks, something I haven’t written about on my little new blog yet. Since I’m trying to be healthier (she says fully planning to post a milkshake recipe too) I thought Sheila’s morning body parts smoothie in Episode Four would be a great thing to try. Obviously this 100% DOES NOT involve any uncooked meat, or body parts, or…any meat at all for that matter. But it is still delicious, and you can always pretend.

Please don’t kill your neighbours. Continue reading “Not My Neighbour Smoothie – A Santa Clarita Diet Recipe”

Sheldon’s Birthday Cake – A Big Bang Theory Recipe

This is a recipe I randomly thought about whilst watching The Big Bang Theory at the gym, yep, that’s me, working out and thinking of cake. It’s called a balanced diet dear reader.

The 200th Episode of TBBT is also Sheldon’s birthday, which he is forced to celebrate, and eventually enjoys thanks to Batman and a shower chat with Penny. My cake differs a little from Sheldon’s because I wanted to add some bright sprinkles, it’s a little throwback to my favourite episode – The Einstein Approximation – the one with the ball pit.

Sheldon’s specifications for his cake include “Chocolate with strawberry frosting, three layers. If there’s writing on it, make sure it’s not in all caps. I don’t want my dessert yelling at me” which is great, strawberry frosting is my ultimate favourite flavour, and I make a mean chocolate cake.

Moon Peach Hand Pies – An Avatar Recipe

Hey there you! I’m sorry for not posting in a while, but unfortunately I’ve been taken by the flu Demon for the past couple of weeks – It’s a joy, really. I’ve also recently started a new job which is amazing, and have been working on stuff for my upcoming holiday, so busy, busy, busy…argh!

But today I’d thought I’d share my love of pies with you once again. However these are better. Why? Because they are hand pies. Essentially portable fruit pies! There is absolutely nothing bad about portable pie. Nothing.

I love the story of how Momo from Avatar: The Legend of Aang got his name, and Moon Peaches just sound so enchanting don’t they? So I decided to think up a recipe incorporating them, something that would be quick to rustle up, but something that would be portable, so that Aang and his friends could take them on their adventures.

A brief summary of this Blog – Am I Mr.Potato Head?

I’ve tried writing this post a couple of times now, and just cannot seem to get it quite right. This is just a small, hopefully short, post in which I’ll try to sum up some of my aims and plans for ‘The Glass Doubloon’, just so you can see what’s going on.

I will obviously continue to create, and write about TV and Film food. I absolutely love it, and I don’t think you’ll ever find a plain recipe on here, I aim to always add some of my illustrative, creative flair, to make this blog unlike most other ‘health’ or ‘veggie’ websites out there. My aim is to inject some actual fun into veggie food, rather than listing the apparent eighty-five benefits of a handful of spinach, I aim to display the sheer amount of enjoyment you can have eating veggie. Continue reading “A brief summary of this Blog – Am I Mr.Potato Head?”

Pasta Aglio e Olio – A Chef Recipe

Ever since watching the movie ‘Chef’ in the cinema upon its release, I’ve been obsessed with El Jefe’s garlic pasta.

The specific pasta I’m talking about, is the pasta Carl makes for Molly in his apartment. It’s such an amazing scene, and for someone like me, who is all about food and flavour, it was instantly intriguing. Somehow it manages to be a really sensual scene, the sounds, the pictures, the attentiveness is just perfect. It’s probably one of my favourite scenes in the entire movie!

So I decided to give Carl’s Pasta Aglio e Olio a go, and see what would happen – it’s freaking delicious!!

This is enough to make one portion, so double, triple etc. for each person at your table. I’m also not up for portioning your pasta, cook however much you fancy for yourself. I trust you. If you’re not vegan, or vegetarian you could put Parmesan in this too…or if you’re vegetarian, you could add some veggie form of Italian hard cheese. Continue reading “Pasta Aglio e Olio – A Chef Recipe”

Nana Possible’s Lemon Bars – A Kim Possible Recipe

I’ve just recently been watching some old episodes of Kim Possible. It was one of, if not my favourite cartoon as a kid, so when starting up a more food-orientated blog, it was one of my first ports-of-call.

I remembered all kinds off cartoon food, particularly ‘THE NACO!’, which I aim to have a recipe up for by the end of this month. But today, I have one of Drakken’s favourite foods, although he probably wouldn’t admit it…Nana Possible’s Lemon Bars!

Now these aren’t your traditional lemon bars, because, I didn’t google, and also I didn’t make the mix from scratch. Instead, I used a great vegan hack – instead of using eggs etc. Just add 12floz of fizzy drink! I know! Continue reading “Nana Possible’s Lemon Bars – A Kim Possible Recipe”
