Spending the first few years of my life living in Germany has definitely had a big influence on the way I celebrate Christmas. Even the baubles hanging from my tree are the ones that I inherited/pinched from my mum which she bought when we lived […]
A homemade gift is always extra special. It’s the fact that you’ve gone to the trouble to make something for someone rather than just buying them something. This makes a really nice little stocking filler.

Nothing shows just how much you care about someone more than letting them indulge in these delectable little bites of rich chocolatey goodness, rather than just scoffing the lot yourself. I’d forgotten just how delicious the combination of sweet chocolate, bitter coffee and fragrant cardamom […]
