My recipe is just slighty different to hers, as I use wholegrain oats(…)

Marshmallow Digestive Biscuits

Marshmallow Digestive Biscuits

These mallow puff style biscuits are right up my alley, a little bit of wholemeal and a healthy dose of homemade marshmallow, topped off with my favourite, toasted coconut.

Cream Horns

Cream Horns

If you are a product of the 70’s you will definitely remember cream horns. These were the bee’s knees and rightly so, what’s not to love about golden flakey pastry, butter cream and plum jam? Cream horns are easy to make but I am guessing no one has the cream horn forms in their house.(…)

Chocolate Macadamia Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Chocolate Macadamia Chocolate Chunk Cookies

I’m no cookie expert..but these always seem to save the day. I love the way the macadamia nuts pop up through the cookie just begging to be eaten. Just knowing I’m going to bite into a large chunk of chocolate at some stage of the munching process, also brings me joy. My daughter complained about(…)
