Wonky Chocolate Chip Cookies

Is there anything better than spending a Sunday in Autumn baking delicious sweet treats? For me, there really isn’t. If said sweet treats include chocolate, well, that’s even better! Haverá coisa melhor do que passar um domingo de Outono a fazer bolos deliciosos? Para mim, não há mesmo. Se os ditos bolos tiverem chocolate então, ainda melhor!

Enter the Chocolate Chip Cookies! Tenho adorado o livro New York Cult Recipes de…

Em vez de…

Novembro é aquele mês em que se torna aceitável ligar o aquecimento, começar a planear o Natal e gozar o tempo frio. Family My cousins and I are planning on a trip to Henley on Thames to explore the village and have a pub lunch this month. We did a similar thing last year and it was so much fun! A bit of an early Christmas celebration before my cousins T&MN go off on their honeymoon…

October favourites

October has been such a fun month, full of good discoveries and fun moments! Here is a summary of what stood out for me. Outubro tem sido um mês bem divertido, cheio de boas descobertas e momentos divertidos! Aqui fica um resumo do que se destacou para mim. Family My two London based cousins (M & T) and I met up for dinner near the middle of the month. It was so much fun to have a girlie dinner with them, just chatting about exciting things we have going on in our lives. Not that it needed reminding, of course,…
