Paper Fortune Cookies

With Chinese New Year coming up this weekend, I thought it would be fun to make some fortune cookies.

I love how much they […] Read more…

Flourless Chocolate Santa Brownies

My kids are still off school until Thursday, and we felt like a spot of baking this week. Nigella’s flourless chocolate brownies always go down a treat in our house, and we had most of the baking essentials sitting in the kitchen, except for one vital ingredient. You’ve guessed it – chocolate! Luckily, also sitting […] Read more…
