Cheaty McCheaterson’s Chocolate Fudge

I feel like my time is being squeezed on all sides at the moment. I am back in school, so feeling that dreadful “I should really be studying guilt”, I no longer work out before work as my placement starts at 6:30 AM – a bit too early to fit any sort of workout in […]

Peppermint and Chocolate Macarons

Chocolate Hazelnut Shortbread
