Decorating Biscuits

So this weeks acitivity was not so much baking, it could have been if I could have been bothered to bake the biscuits I suppose but I decided to take the easy option. This is something I actually remember doing when I was little too (on Rich Tea Biscuits) so I like the idea of…

Double Chocolate Cookies

Just before Christmas it was my Husbands birthday, normally I like to surprise him with a cake, however, this year it was not going to be that simple. My toddler is not a great assistant in the kitchen and so I would need him to watch her whilst I baked. So I thought I would…

Happy New Year – Chocolate Tiffin Bar
