    1. Thanks, although these are the good ones that make me laugh. They’re better than when I keep answering the same question over and over again. Yes you can freeze it, it lasts 3-4 days!

  1. Brilliant … but I don’t like reading lots of comments dto I didn’t read them all, why did you have so many ????????. Sorry, I couldn’t resist ????????????

  2. Wow these were truly terrible haha, BUT the comment about the turmeric and black pepper had some grounds. Turmeric is great on its own but its much better absorbed if you have black pepper alongside it (so the comment was exaggerated but maybe meant well) xD love your recipes, keep up the good work!! Gonna try the buckwheat bread today xx

    1. Thanks although as I started reading the first few words of your comment my heart sank as though it was a recipe gone wrong. Thankfully not!

      That’s a good point about turmeric, some articles say its due to the fat in the black pepper so any fat will do for absorption and others say it’s compounded in the pepper. So I’m not sure but do always add a pinch these days.

  3. I love your cheeky attitude. People and their nonsense comments ????????
    I just started seeing your recipes and Iโ€™d love to try them all.

    1. Oh gosh I was trying not to be cheeky, really thought I bit my tongue! Thanks so much glad you like the recipes ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. These are hysterical. Love the one who substituted sunflower seeds for chickpeas! Haven’t tried your recipes yet but will be soon. Been a vegetarian since 1970. Thanks for sharing these questions and your amazing recipes.

  5. I have never understood how these type statements can even be in someoneโ€™s head lil long get put in writing ????. Would drive me ???? batty, I would have to totally ignore. Please keep up your awesomeness for the rest of us, thanks????

    1. I think some people don’t think! Or think there’s some huge brand behind nest and glow not some guy at home on all fours filming recipes on a budget setup! Thanks so much ๐Ÿ˜€

  6. I just discovered your recipes (getting into vegan cheeses) and LOVE them, also all the articles.
    Do you have a ‘buy me a coffee button’ somewhere? I saw your recipe book, but I don’t really want another cookbook – if you only make 3 bucks on the book, I rather just pay that and use the recipes on your bog.
    Thanks again!

      Hey Monika, that’s so nice to hear – really motivating. That’s a very sweet offer but finally this year (after 3 years) I’m making my goal of minimum wage with a bit to save for rainy days from the ads on the site. So while I really appreciate the offer it isn’t necessary. Just hearing nice comments is great – thank you!

  7. Really funny comments. Love all the recipes I’ve tried so far (currently munching through the beetroot/carrot cake). Thank you

  8. I’ve recently had quite a few negative comments on my recipes so was wondering if other bloggers get many too. I literally cried with laughter reading these. Thank you for making my day better!

      Ah thanks Elizabeth, I think we’re just more likley to hear when something didn’t go well. All we can do is our best ๐Ÿ™‚
