Banana Choc Chip Muffins

Term 1 has flown by and was quite a shock to the system with the volume of homework increasing from primary school, settling into a new school, an earlier start time and a later finish, new routines. Plus making time for all the extra mural activities...and that's just me! Let alone my poor child! But… Continue reading Banana Choc Chip Muffins

Out with the Old, in with the New…tumble drier

Yes, you are looking at an image of a tumble drier. My new tumble drier. Not what you thought you'd be reading? No, I guess not.

Peppermint Crisp Chocolate Log

This little post has apparently had 190 views in the past week! So I thought I’d share it again. Not my recipe, but very tasty indeed. Gosh, 4 years flew by. I think it’s time to make it again. Leave your thought/comments if you made it and what you think.

I have to be honest and admit I’ve only made this once, but it has got to be just about the easiest non-baked treat I’ve come across. A friend recently shared the original link on Facebook (you can follow Chocolate Goose on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/chocolategoose?ref=hl) and it looked so delicious I had to give it a go. It didn’t last very long either so it will definitely be made again, and again, and again…you get the picture ;).

If you can’t find Peppermint Crisp chocolate bars (they hail from South Africa and we are lucky to be able to get them from a few SA shops in Auckland), then perhaps peppermint Aero or any delicious minty chocolate might do the trick.
