  1. I have just cooked the veg muffins for 5 young ladies – all vegetarian – staying with me for bnb. Super and I love the sound of lots of the others I shall be doing for my grandchildren in half term – excellent, quick, practical and ingredients already in the fridge – no special shopping trips! A bonus all round!

    • Ah, that’s so great to hear, Anne! I’m pleased it all worked out so well. And I’m glad you’ve found others you like the look of!! Happy cooking, and thanks for writing 🙂

  2. Can wait to try them all.

    How the heck you guys use eggs, cheese in your recipes and call it vegetarian? How is that possible?

    • Hi Stanislaw, we use the generally accepted definition of ‘vegetarian’ – no meat or animal rennet. Our recipes without animal products are labelled as ‘vegan’.
