Vegan and Gluten-Free Carrot Cake

As I’ve mentioned in some other blog posts, I have coeliac disease so eat a strict gluten-free diet. I don’t talk about it much on the blog, because it’s a vegan blog, and is not about health or gluten-free recipes, but all the food I cook does happen to be gluten-free, and my recipes on my blog are either all gluten-free or can be made gluten-free, depending on what type of flour, pasta, etc. that you use. I know a lot of people looking for gluten-free and vegan cake recipes, and in general for vegan cake recipes, so thought I would share this recipe.

Síofra’s 1st Birthday

My littlest vegan baby turned one a few days ago! It seems like only yesterday that she was born, and yet I can’t imagine life without her.

Rian’s 5th Birthday

Rian turned 5 a few days ago and we had a little celebration. These 5 years have been the best. It’s lovely to see how he has grown into such a kind and funny person. He keeps me entertained all the time, imagining stories, chatting about things he has learned, asking a million questions. He is so caring, always saying how he loves me and his brother and sister, how he loves animals and wants to help them. I’m so proud of him. Raising him has been the greatest things I’ve done so far, but no matter how grown up he gets, he will always be my baby.

Our Vegan Halloween

 

What do vegan kids do for Halloween?  That’s something that a few people have asked me.  People have this idea that vegan kids will “miss out” on so many things, but I’ve found that they can have just as much fun as other kids do!  This is what we did for Halloween this year, and some ideas for the future.  (And some cute photos of Síofra!)
