Chocolate Chip Cookie Cups

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Cups Recipe

Chocolate Chip Cookie Cups Hi everyone! I’m really excited to be doing a guest post for Lisa today (my first ever!) Sweet 2 Eat Baking was one of the first blogs I started following before taking the leap of starting my own :D Today’s recipe is inspired by my friend Natasha over at Butter Baking who recently made some cookies baked in paper cases. I’m really pleased with this cookie recipe, it’s been tweaked from recipes I’ve used before and the fact they are baked in paper cases means they don’t spread and stay nice and puffy. It also means you don’t have to wait for the cookie … [Read more...]

Sugar Cookie Bars What does one do when they fancy cookies but fancy something a little more indulgent than actual cookies? Then bake a big slab of cookie bars and completely smother it with girly pink, creamy and delicious buttercream frosting, of course!

Meringue Kisses Isn't snoring annoying? The giant man-baby snores… a lot! When bedtime rolls around it's kind of a race, a race on who can get to sleep the fastest! If I'm not asleep before him, I know I've got an agonising night of listening to his builder-esq snaffling all night until I finally get to sleep out of sheer exhaustion. Apparently I snore too but I have yet to see or hear the evidence. In fact, the giant man-baby thinks it's OK to snore because he's a man. :? I've been trying to capture his nighttime antics. It's not working, he has a weird snore. He'll snore for minutes … [Read more...]

Cookies and Cream Cupcakes First and foremost… HAPPY NEW YEAR! Did you all have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year? I hope so. I did, and not one drop of alcohol touched my lips the entire festive period too! But wow, isn't it exhausting? I think I'm still in shock after all the festivities.

Just trying to get back into the swing of things. Does anyone else feel like that too? Seriously, I feel like I've been away from … [Read more...]
