Rumballs (definitely for grown ups)

I have to say that I never expected it to be so easy to make rumballs.  I’m not quite sure why I’ve never made them before, or even what motivated me to decide to make them now.  All I can think is that I’m trying to get myself into the Christmas spirit and these babies…

Chocolate Chip and Hazelnut Biscuits

Earlier on the in the year we finally had to capitulate and buy ourselves a new refrigerator.  It had been long overdue but we kept putting it off not seeing anything we liked, and having a very small fridge space in our kitchen, not finding the right size.  So when we bit the bullet, we…

Banana and Choc Chip Muffins

I always think muffins should be a really quick easy treat to make.  For some reason though,  I don’t have the muffin magic to get mine the way I picture them in my head.   I love the flavour combinations I create, but the texture has always been a bit wet and not quite as…

So combined with leftover easter chocolate still tempting my household, I thought once again I would turn them into a…

Easter Egg Chocolate Brownies

comfort food

We all have them, food that you reach out for when you are in need of a hug, to comfort or make you feel better when you are ill.    You’re not thinking about calories, or your diet, just something that is likely to put a smile on your face for a minute or give…

a super slice for the sweet tooth….

I had some left over condensed milk leftover and was looking for something to make.  I saw a variation of this recipe online and thought I would give it a shot.  The end result, slightly crumbly and sweet enough to put my teeth on edge!  Not quite my cup of tea but I’m sure this…
