I’m a big fan of grab and go breakfasts. Something that you can quickly pick up before you leave the house and eat on the go. My mornings are normally hectic, and I’m running around trying to do so much, that my breakfast is never as good as I’d like it to be. That’s where these cookies fit in. They’re super quick and simple to make.
If you don’t know by now, I absolutely love baking. There’s something about throwing a bunch of simple ingredients together, and making something completely delicious that I just love. There really is nothing better than people taking a bite, and making that irresistible “mmmmm…’ sound. That’s always a sign of a good creation.
Another thing that I love is just how diverse cakes are. There are so many flavour combinations and possibilities. Some like to keep it simple, others go as wacky as they can. I’ve seen ice cream plonked on quadruple chocolate cake, candyfloss frosting, and all manner of strange and bizarre creations
Valentine’s day is all about celebrating that someone special, and that can be anyone that we hold dear. Girlfriend, boyfriend, husband, wife, mum, dad, granny, grandpa, if you love them, then Valentine’s day is the perfect opportunity to show them. That’s why I loved it when my 4-year-old nephew came up to me and asked me to help him do something special. ‘What do you mean, something special?’ I asked, thinking we were just going to play some bizarre game where we’re Ghostbusters or something. (Don’t ask, it’s his latest obsession.) He told me about how Valentine’s Day is all about showing someone that you love them, and the person he loved most in the world was his mummy, and how he wanted to make her a special valentines surprise. I know, how unbelievably cute!
