I HEART February!

Not only was February the month of love, but I had many reasons to love February…Why?

1.  I was given the opportunity to review and giveaway some amazingly delicious Booja Booja Hazelnut Crunch Truffles.

I adore Booja Booja truffles of all varieties…

…and these lil’ baby’s didn’t disappoint!

2.  I bought my first ever vegan cook books and baked up some yummy treats

3.  Discovering my favourite oat combo was pretty epic…

…I took it on step further and added raspberries too…

4.  Watching Breakfast at Tiffany’s for the first time.


My style crush!


5.  Choco, PB and Nana Pudding!

If you haven’t tried it yet- what are you waiting for?!!?  I promise you that you won’t regret it.


6.  Hosting my first ever guest post by the lovely Emma.


Just to remind you if you would like to guest post on Celery and Cupcakes then drop me an email at celeryandcupcakes@gmail.com.

7. Bargain buys at Julian Graves…

I have to heart the whole year for that one, not just February!

8.  The first signs of Spring!

Bring on the lighter mornings, sunny days and eventually Summer! :D

9.  Creating exciting recipes for some new hummus combinations

You just cannot beat homemade hummus and I have a brand spanking new one for you!

Now I know I said my Sweet Potato Hummus was a marriage made in heaven, but I lied…

Butternut Squash Hummus, now this flavour combination is going to live happily ever after…


  • 400g of tinned chickpeas rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup of diced roasted butternut squash
  • 2 tbsp of tahini
  • 1 tsp of cumin
  • 2 tbsp of fresh parsley
  • a squeeze of lemon juice (to taste)
  • water
  • seasonings to taste

Throw everything in to a food processor and blitz away.  Add small amounts of water slowly to get a smoother mixture and the right consistency.It’s as simple as that!

This is what fairytales are made of

Call me crazy, BUT I THINK I’M IN LOVE!

10.  Most importantly, you lovely peeps for your on going support and inspiration.

Why do you heart February?  Did anything significant happen that made you love this month so much?

Okay, I am making this hummus tomorrow without fail!!
This month I changed my workout routine to something more intense in half the time I would normally spend which has meant I have had more time to bake and spend time with my friends so I have felt happier overall :)


Jemma @ Celery and Cupcakes March 2, 2011 at 10:41 AM

Thats nice that you can spend more time with your friends. So you get in an awesome workout and spend time with fabulous people too! :D

I love homemade hummus – the butternut squash one looks gorgeous. The highlight of Feb for me was going to Cuba :) Pina Coladas a-go-go!


Jemma @ Celery and Cupcakes March 2, 2011 at 10:40 AM

Wow! Cuba?? That must have been amazing! :)

I heart Feburary for the Valentine’s chocolates and that it’s a short month!


Jemma @ Celery and Cupcakes March 2, 2011 at 10:39 AM

I love the fact that it is a short month too- pay day comes around way quicker!


LilyLipstick March 1, 2011 at 7:13 AM

Wow, looks like you’ve had a great month – all those eats look amazing, especially the oats! x


Jemma @ Celery and Cupcakes March 2, 2011 at 10:39 AM

I usually hate Feburary but your post has actually made me think about all the great things that have happened for me this month, thanks! That hummus looks yummy, if it tastes anything like my squash dip it will be the bomb! Glad you’ve had a great month :-)


Jemma @ Celery and Cupcakes March 2, 2011 at 10:38 AM

Thanks! I really want to make your sqaush dip, it looked delicious! :)

YAY looks like you had an AMAZING month!! Number 6 must have been the highlight, right? ;)

And that hummus looks SO GOOD!! :D

Number 6 was definitely a hightlight!!! :D


AlisonM March 1, 2011 at 10:59 AM

Yaay to lighter mornings and signs of spring! That has definitely been the highlight for me — at least in the latter part of the month. That and the fact that I’ve been able to start running again :)


Jemma @ Celery and Cupcakes March 2, 2011 at 10:37 AM

I’ve been running outside again too. It’s the best feeling! :P

Jemma @ Celery and Cupcakes March 2, 2011 at 10:36 AM

The hummus was fab! I cannot wait to run outside again in the sun…love it!
