Vegan Mozzarella for The Eczema Detox Program

This vegan mozzarella recipe is a MUST try (if you are not allergic to cashews!). It is simple to make and so so tasty.

Pear Chutney + Vegan Chive Dressing

Vegan Carob Mylk Easter Eggs (two ways)

Easter is just around the corner, and the supermarket shelves are already stocked with hot cross buns and endless varieties of sugar-laden Easter Eggs.           This Easter, I wanted to make sure our sensitive folk (who can merely look at a hot cross bun and feel a flare coming on) had some yummy alternatives to enjoy. So we have two Easter egg options which use ingredients from Karen Fischer's Eczema Detox programs.         These two recipes feature carob powder which I love as an alternative to cocoa (or cacao powder) for those prone to skin issues. The...
