Hi, I am Veet Karen. I have been a healthy vegetarian for over three decades and along the way, I have educated myself on how to eat as healthy as I possibly can. I established a catering business seven years ago ‘Veet’s Cuisine” to following my passion of cooking incredibly healthy and creative vegetarian cuisine. Prior to that, I was a care worker for people with disabilities for eight years and a teacher for twelve years.

Who noticed I missed a blog or two? I certainly noticed as I am having withdrawals. I love posting weekly recipes and am so happy I now have the space to get regular again.
What better way to start back writing than sharing a sweet treat recipe. This recipe of mine featured in the Injoy magazine in June 2015. It’s a beauty and I am happy to share it with you all

½ cup coconut cream
¼ cup of maple syrup or 6 drops stevia

Top layer
