Trying to be a little thrifty this year made me think of what gifts my mum might fancy.. so here goes :)

homemade dark chocolate brazil nuts in a handmade parcel

home made choux pastry chocolate and coffee buns with the handmade box behind it.

this is a hand made quilted bread basket :) it turned out a little shorter than i would want but it will still work :)

goookies according to eddie

my son has become obsessed with cookies. so we made some white chocolate and raspberry cookies today

1/2 cup of caster sugar
1/4 cup of brown sugar
1 egg
2 1/2 cups of flour
a drop of milk (or untill it binds better)
white chocolate chunks
half a punnet of raspberrys

mix together in a large bowl, 
spoon a mound onto a greased baking tray
bake for 20-30 mins (untill browned but not hard they must still be squidgy in the middle)
cool and serve!

we usually make a tray full which is usually about 20 cookies and have a sandwich bag of cookie dough left in the fridge to make another 12-15 

happy munching!


Well, we moved almost 2 weeks ago and i love our new house!

Im sure you will see my progress in the up-do of the place and upcycle of furniture that i have plans for so here goes :)
