Winter treats coming soon…WATCH THIS SPACE!
In a good week of absence from posting (well yeah I’m still getting into the swing of this blogging thing!) I have been busy I promise! I passed my driving theory test, which is a big box ticked, and have been concocting giddy delightful recipes for my Christmas hampers, this year, I am excited! I LOVE Christmas, and as you can gather from my previous posts, I am easily delighted by the prospect of giving gifts, making things, and well, anything that requires being made in the kitchen. (At 19 years young I have finally resigned myself to the fact that I am unalterably fascinated by baking, it’s official.)
So please look forward to your Christmas bakes and wrapping ideas that I shall attempt to grace you with, I have already started stocking the freezer, and this week I shall get all my recipes onto my little comfy cranny of the internet.
Myself and a wonderful friend spent hours pouring over these nifty websites, and ordering our jars, bottles, ribbons, wrapping, molds, labels, loaf tins etc etc etc! So I shall leave you with some links in case anyone wants to have a gander. I am in charge of sweets and she is in charge of savory, so she has hold of most of the jars and bottles!

Have a look around these websites, they are my favorites. And, whilst we’re here, this is one example of a simple delicious treat to make, and freeze ahead of time, remember we made chocolate brownies? Well why not bake them individually, i have some in the freezer now will let you know how they are after a super chilled slumber. Here’s a little sample: ENJOY, and beware, these websites are very easy to get carried away on!
