Strawberry, Roasted Hazelnut, Dark and White Chocolate Chip Cookies These Strawberry, Roasted Hazelnut, Dark & White Chocolate Chip Cookies have delicious dried strawberries for that fruity punch and moistness, nuts for a textured crunch and of course delicate creamy white chocolate in addition to the dark chocolate chips. Crunchy, chewy and indulgent. They're chocolate chip cookies with a difference! I'm a lover of all cookie but these are my new favourite by far!

Victoria Sponge Cake Guess who's birthday it is? No, not mine but someone very close to my heart… yes, the giant man-baby. Aka. my partner, Daniel. I'm normally very organised when it comes to birthdays, I normally have a budget where I save X amount of money per month so I know I'll have enough. I also usually buy the card and present(s) anywhere from a few months in advance to 2 weeks in advance, this year being the exception. I'm having another flare-up with my arthritis and it's in my hands so driving is currently out of the question which means having the giant man-baby with me while … [Read more...]

buttercream-frosting-vanilla-strawberry-chocolate-cupcakes

Strawberry, Chocolate & Vanilla Buttercream Frosting Cupcakes Aren't children wonderful? I love the way they spring things on you. For example, Wednesday evening the children returned home from school and casually stated that there was going to be a school bake sale. Great, I'll help and whip up some cupcakes.

I was therefore excited that it would actually be used for … [Read more...]
