Amaretti

So, did you miss me? Thanks for all the messages folks! The fingers are healing slowly but nicely. I regained the use of my 3rd and 4th fingers yesterday and they are performing quite well (other than a little numbness in the fingertips). The thumb and index finger are still bandaged, but they should be […]

Too many food blogs, not enough time

As my fellow food-bloggers and readers may know, there are a lot of food blogs out there, and with that many different people blogging their cooking, it inevitably leads to a situation where there are WAY too many recipes that you want to try, and to give them all a shot, you’ll need to stay […]

Mon petit macaron

After seeing the darling chocolate macarons by Gilly over at Humble Pie, I was reminded of the fact that I hadn’t tried making macarons in a very long time. I last blogged about them in August last year, but the truth is that I had tried them a few more times with rather disasterous results. […]

Not-so-blackberry smacks

When I first saw the recipe for these brombeerbusserl by Nicky over at Delicious:Days, I knew that this was one recipe that needed to be made. How could something so tiny and cute and biscuitty possibly be denied? Now, though I’ve never really been much of a girly girl (you should’ve seen my childhood collection […]

Happy Hazelnut Heaven

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. I love nuts. Macadamias, pecans, walnuts, pistachios, cashews, peanuts, almonds, hazelnuts – I adore them all. Whilst I enjoy munching on a handful of raw nuts as a quick energy boost throughout the day, my passion for them really comes through when it comes to cooking […]

Don’t hate me ‘cuz I’m beautiful

These cookies aren’t the kind that will win any beauty pagents. No siree bob, these are the kind of cookies that would make the mirror crack as they groomed their warty selves in the morning whilst asking any available reflective surface if they were pretty – in the hopes that one would survive the ensuing […]
