There has been a lack of baking around here since Christmas (ahem!... if you don't count the two Guinness chocolate cakes) because more than one of us needs to shed a few pounds that have been gained over the festive season. It hasn't worked... the pounds have stayed were they are around our middles. So I decided that this weekend I would bake anyway.
Chocolate chip cookies... except I didn't have chocolate chips so in a moment of inspiration I bought some Crunchie Bars, bashed them into pieces and added those instead. It was one of my better inspired moments. Three dozen Crunchie cookies... not many left.
I then got carried away and made rolls and an apple cake...
so those pounds are still around our middles and today I'm trying to ignore the leftover baking.
I'm telling you... it's not easy!
