Pistachio & Chocolate Biscotti

Been loving scrolling through my Instagram to find new things to try off late. One person I’ve really caught on to is John Whaite and his recipe for biscotti was too simple for me to skip. Have changed things up a bit though. I said it on my instagram, and I’m saying it again now,…

I’m not someone who’s always craving chocolate. I can actually go a couple of weeks without wanting to eat any. However when I do end up craving it, the need for it goes on for a couple of days and I end up consuming it in large quantities. My access to chocolate at the start…

Quarantining

Savoury Smores

A couple of days ago I did a post on black olive and rosemary sables. As wonderful as those biscuits taste on their own, they taste even better when turned into some delicious smores. When you hear the word smore, your brain instantly goes to gooey marshmallows and melted chocolate between crackers. Imagine if instead…
