Gingerbread Cookies Two Ways

Gingerbread Cookies

It's a Christmas tradition in our house to make gingerbread every year. Last year I made a gingerbread house, but we kept it out on display throughout the Christmas festivities and forgot to eat it. So this year, its back to Gingerbread Cookies. Sweet buttery biscuits with a soft and chewy texture, gorgeous depth thanks to golden syrup and brown sugar, and a hint of spice - the best part. A new addition this year is Chocolate Gingerbread, combing those fabulous ginger flavours with the joys of chocolate.

Salted Caramel Candy

Can you believe it's only 11 sleeps until Christmas? If you are making homemade Christmas gifts this year, than you will LOVE these Salted Caramel Candies. They are deliciously salty, extra chewy and have a deep caramel flavour. Made in the microwave, these sweet candies take only 6 minutes to cook. Make these as holiday gifts for your family and friends this year, but be warned, they are HIGHLY addictive.

Sweet Menu's Disappearing Act

Thursday, 23 October 2014

Hi friends, just a quick note to explain my absence on Sweet Menu the last week or so. It all started with major computer issues (having to take the computer in for repairs four times) and then we unfortunately had our house burgled. Among many valuables, my laptop, camera and even Adobe software was stolen. My beautiful engagement and wedding rings were taken and my husband's university assignment that's due in two days is gone. I may be MIA for a little while longer until we get everything sorted.  I really miss baking and posting for you all but I hope to have Sweet Menu back on it's feet very soon. xx
