A little trip down memory lane....

MoFo starts next week and I'm excited! I've participated in MoFo for 6 out the 7 years I've been writing this blog (has it been that long? Blimey Charlie!) and this year will be the 7th.

I thought it would be fun to have a little look back over some of my favourite MoFo posts over the years. I'm picking one from each year.

Let's start with last year, 2014. I had a couple of themes going but my favourite one was Veganising Jamie Oliver's 15 Minute Meals (you can see all my veganising Jamie posts HERE.)

My favourite thing I made from that book (and have made since) was Chicken Dim Sum with Coconut Buns & Cucumber Pickle. This recipe is so good! Those buns are delicious and the sides are really simple and everything just complements each other perfectly.



Vegan MoFo 2013: My theme was Cockney Rhyming Slang (you can read my 2013 MoFo posts HERE). Basically I couldn't think of a theme so I just went with the dumbest thing I could think of (par for the course).

My favourite post of MoFo 2013 goes to the post about the food from my brother's wedding. Mainly because it brings back great memories of a brilliant day.

This is a pic of the amazing cupcakes that Jojo made for the day!

Vegan MoFo 2012: I didn't do themes back then! (you can read my 2012 MoFo posts HERE.) I gotta say that my posts this year were not very inspiring! So I picked one where there are pictures of my cat shamelessly dancing for food!!



Vegan MoFo 2011: This was the year I did not participate, as I had gallstones and I pretty much lived on brown rice and mashed potato for a year!

Vegan MoFo 2010: Again, not a particularly inspiring year (you can read my 2010 MoFo posts HERE.) It was a toss up between pics of the food from my holiday in Texas and the pics of the cakes I made for my Dad's 60th. I'm going with the latter, because cake!



Vegan MoFo 2009: (You can read my 2009 MoFo posts HERE.) My favourite post of MoFo 2009 goes to the one about my best friend's wedding. She got married in a super fancy place that did AWESOME vegan food for me!
Terrible pic of a brilliant main course

Vegan MoFo 2008: This was the year I became vegan, started blogging and (obviously) the first time I participated in MoFo. (You can read my 2008 MoFo posts HERE.)


For my favourite post, I am gonna have to give it to my crunchie ice cream post - because who doesn't love ice cream. And crunchies!


So that's a look back on some of my posts from MoFos past. What are some of your favourite memories from MoFo and what are you looking forward to writing about this year??

  1. This is a fun idea (and one I may totally steal for a pre-mofo post this weekend!!). I don't usually do themes either during Mofo. But this year, I'm going to follow the Mofo prompts for what to blog about daily. It means I'll actually have to step up my game and blog on weekends. But I'm gonna try!! Happy Almost Mofo!

  4. You always have awesome MoFos! I think the Jamie Oliver's 15 Minute Meals has been my favorite. Although you can't beat the cockney rhyming slang either!

    Jazzy! I remember that post. Shameless hungry kitteh dancing for food! :)

    When the prompts were first released I thought "yeah, MoFo! I'm doing it!" I've been steadily losing steam since then and now I am convinced I won't be able to pull it off. So, I have decided to do only a few posts, but whenever I do post during September it will be following the MoFo prompts. I think that's the best I can do!

    1. I know what you mean. I might struggle with the prompts too, I'd rather do my own thing. I'm gonna give it a go though.
