Sweet & sticky cinnamon buns.

  It’s half term and as well as it being freezing cold outside, i’ve been struck with a cold. So the fun days out I had planned whilst the girls are off have been limited. Mischa loves to bake and not really wanting to leave the house for supplies, I had a good root around … [Read more…]

Hazelnut & Chocolate Shortbread sandwich.

  Its Valentines day on Sunday -just in case you forgot!- And nothing says Valentine’s day like chocolate, or these mouthwateringly good hazelnut and chocolate love heart biscuits to be more exact.
