Hooray!

Thank you for all your comments and emails over the past week or so. I do usually try to reply by email where possible but have been a little lax about this recently. I've been busy... in between writing blog posts I've been finishing off and tidying up my Professional Practice module which has now all been parcelled up and sent to my tutor... nothing more do do except wait for results... hooray! It feels good. Thank you too to all my new Facebook fans... after this post my number of "likes" doubled in 24 hours... another hooray!

With some extra time on my hands, my love affair with this book continues (and I'm not the only one as Monica will testify) and my most recent bake has been these hazelnut praline muffins.


Admittedly not the prettiest of muffins but what they lacked in good looks they made up for in taste.

And with a tasty morsel of Nutella in every one they couldn't fail to please. Hooray to whoever thought of putting Nutella into muffins!


What shall I bake today I wonder?

  8. The Girl has dominion over the Nutella jar in our house. I'll have to ask very nicely if I'm allowed to make these muffins with a spoonful or ten...

  12. They sound lovely - and I just found out today that Nutella is good for you - it's full of good protein apparently. That's it, no need for guilty for eating it now!
