Snickerdoodles and Eggnog Recipe
I thought it was time we shared our secret ingredient for surviving the holidays our home made egg nog and spicy Snickerdoodle cookies. So pour yourself an eggnog, grab a snickerdoodle and put your feet up for a much needed rest. If there’s ever a time we deserve a little self pampering, now is it. So perhaps add a dash of spiced rum and enjoy.

Make your own rustic but pretty Chocolate Bark. It is pretty easy, looks impressive and tastes delicious. A great idea for Christmas presents.You can top or add anything you like to the chocolate once it is tempered so get creative. I was recently given a bar of Bolivian chocolate by a friend with salt, and coffee which was a taste sensation so I decided to try that, plus I love chilli and chocolate and chocolate with nuts.

When I lived in Europe, whenever I passed a macaron shop like Laurie I practically drooled over the huge selection of flavours and colours they offered. I thought of trying to make them for a long time but I had heard they were very difficult so never bothered. I finally conquered my fear and had a go, as you can see they weren’t perfect but I picked up some tips along the way which I am passing on to you.

Monochrome has gathered a legion of followers and it’s easy to see why. A design classic, black and white is guaranteed to deliver a dramatic punch both on the runway and in the home. But as is often with design, sometimes the simplest looks can be the hardest to execute.

The bundt may have originated from the German bundkuchen (often called Gugelhupf or Kugelhupf), a ring-shaped coffee cake. There are so many recipes around so you can put almost anything into them and add the flavours and spices you love.

Bring the colours of the leaves to your table table with my warm and inviting Roasted Carrot and Fennel Salad with the fresh crunch of Granny Smith Apples.

Happy Midsummer to all the Scandinavians and those that wish they were.
My husband is Swedish and I have enjoyed many lovely long evenings of herrings, and schnapps. However, there is only so many shots of schnapps one girl can drink. This year, I am introducing to the family my version of a Midsummer Cocktail with typically Swedish Elderflower, and less Swedish, Prosecco, and Gin.

Our Rosemary and Balsamic Vinegar Cornmeal Cake Recipe is sweet with herby notes of rosemary, the bitterness of balsamic vinegar and the comfort of rich creamy frosting. Well worth the effort for the ones you love.
