About

About the blog:

Gorgeous Vegan is a blog focusing on all things gorgeously vegan but, lets face it, mainly food.

This blog was originally created on a whim as a place where three untraditional non-housewives could post whatever we felt like with no real organisation or planning…a brain dump if you will. Formally known as  “The Modern Housewife Series” the irony of the name was missed by many…so the name was changed.  Gorgeous Vegan is a reincarnation of a blog Cat once had back in the dark days of the internet when blogs were only first emerging and it was originally coded all in good old fashioned HTMLs.

Where to start:

We took part in Vegan MoFo last year and followed in up with Vegan HoHo (a series of Yule time posts). If you are interested in sweet treats then have a look at our vegan bake month series of posts.

If you are new to this whole vegan idea and can’t see how this kind of eating can be incorporated into every meal there are a couple of menu plans here and here to give you a very general idea. There are also some veganised Swedish recipes courtesy of Hannah and her time spent living in Sweden. We also have a vaguely organised recipe index for your perusal.

We blog extremely irregularly so our best advice is to follow us on twitter, subscribe to our rss feed or add us to your blog reader or bloglovin.

About us:

(In descending chronological order:)

Lucy
Bum

Lucy spent much of her childhood and teenage time dancing and playing loud music and getting into trouble for both. Spurred on by this, she then spent several years encouraging others to do the same. After meeting a similarly inclined man and producing two small people, there then followed a soul sucking period in her life of accepting money to persuade lots of small people to conform. It wasn’t pretty. She is not proud of it.

She now writes obsessively, dances sweatily and stares into space maniacally, sometimes scaring people. Along with running veganfamily.co.uk and frugal.org.uk, posting on the Modern Housewife Series Vol I is probably the sanest activity Lucy can currently name

Cat

P1010169

Cat spent her formative years being a formidable force to be reckoned with and making boys cry with her laser stare (true). This was soon knocked out of her while attending boarding school which could only be compared to Hogwarts if you imagine it full of Dementors.

After surviving school Cat studied tv and film production and at one point taught broadcasting until giving it all up to cook in a vegetarian restaurant. She then trained as a herbalist and went on to run the herbal degree program. Having left school with one higher she feels it just goes to show…but what exactly still remains a mystery.

Cat now stays at home nurturing her baby while her man slogs away for the NHS.

Hannah

Hannah lives in Scotland after recently returning from five years in Sweden. Still uncertain what to do with her life, she passes the time watching YouTube videos of kitties, playing with her own over sized kitten Bruce and stuffing her face with cakes. Her sweet tooth will lead to a life of obesity but that is not enough to put her off yet.

  1. Hello – Thanks for visiting my blog and liking my poems. The photos in your blog are downright yummy! Everything looks delicious. I love soup, especially on cold Winer nignts. Thanks again.

  2. I nominated you for the One Lovely Blog Award! You can check out the rules and get the badge on my blog, but it’s a no-strings-attached-award, so you don’t have to do anything unless you want to.

    Whoopee!
