Re: Today I Made:

Oh boy! I'm sure I made a bunch of stuff over the holidays but all I can remember is our impromptu NYE party food - I did pizzas. I only have one stone so I'd make one, bring it out for the guests and then start on the next. They turned out fantastic. -Roasted red, yellow and orange capsicum with m...

Made millionaire shortbread with the 7yo for his grandad's Christmas present, and then a small batch of lavender shortbread as a thank you present because of being reminded again how ridiculously easy shortbread is.

Re: Controversial opinions about food

Saw a thing the other day where they made chocolate leave decoratios by painting one side a mint leaf with melted choc and left it to set, then peeled away the leaf. You could experiment with that or with dipping a whole leaf in choc?
