Stuck on the roof of your mouth!

You’re  in control!!.

an irresistible melting soft fudgy centre.It’s a tongue

twisting, deliciously breathtaking experience, of pure indulgence, all combined to make this mouthwatering chocolate chip cookie

one of the best I have ever tried.

I’m having some quality time with my sister and her family. I’m experiencing a world  I have never ventured into. The world of motherhood. Can it really be this exhausting! I’m loving every minute of it. Every day is a new adventure into the world of 6 and 8 year olds.Can there be this much competition at a young age!

A wonderland of play, a kaleidoscope of colours…

Making and baking things have strung a new string in my creative mind. 

What to make for the first day of school, lunch box treats?

The shiny new lunch box is filled with fruit,crackers,cheese,sandwiches(healthy) and of course that energy boosting sugar plus delight.

Here’s the favourite of my niece and nephews taste buds….

It’s a favourite with the kids and the irresistible fudgy chocolaty taste will win you over.

This recipe has been adapted from the Neiman Marcus recipe…had to look that one up! You can read about the recipe here…urban legend…status – false. What ever the recipe it’s going round.

My sister has also tweaked it for her kids liking. I have to admit I love cooking with my sister we seem to know what the other is thinking and as our minds mix we create some wonderful things…it’s been too long since we’ve been together.
