Birthday Food

My husband had this amazing gluten free, vegan cake made for my birthday.

So good.
So sweet.
Both my husband and the cake……

Seriously, I honestly can’t remember the last time I had cake, so it was a great surprise…and did I mention it was so good?!

I definitely won’t be doing that again anytime soon, but hey it was my birthday, gotta live a little.

And lucky for me, or them, we had friends over to help eat it.

We also had one of my favourite go to meals, burrito bowls which I love!! 

Easy to make and so good.
And because it’s been a while since I’ve shared a recipe, here you go.
