Chocolate & chestnut cookies

When you love cookies like we do, you get curious on how they are made. I am not talking about the ready to cook packets. There’s always not enough of cookies made with those. So this weekend, my little monsters and I baked our first batch of cookies together and I think it won’t be our…

Then we ripped off the carpet and wall paper. Painted the whole interior white and put cream tiles. We wanted something that…

Chocolate Beetroot cake

A friend of mine who is a great cook brought this when she came for a visit. It is the most scrummiest cake I’ve ever tasted. I do not know how she did it but if she ever does post the recipe on her blog, you must try it. Shalimar Orlanes
