The amount of times I’ve been messing around in the kitchen and ended up cooking something tasty by accident is countless (there’s also countless times I’ve cooked something barely passable as edible but that’s not helping my point.) After some of my successes I’ve been tempted to try and replicate them with some photos along the way and post the recipes on here.
Yesterday was obviously valentines day, and I thought ‘Hmm a nice cookie recipe will go down a treat’. So I adapted a recipe found online, changing the vanilla extract to almond, changing the sugars and whatnot to make something a bit different.. And it was all going so well!
Try and tell me these don’t look extremely promising! I bet you’re dying to know the recipe, right?!
Well this is how they came out.
Yep. Just one giant mishmash. Don’t get me wrong, they still tasted great, but really that is not a bloggable recipe photo is it?! Who knew they’d spread so much and combine into a tray sized cookie. Not me!
So, I think I’ll stick to going out for food and posting about that. Tuesday was Shrove Tuesday, pancake day of course. A day earlier (because we had to work round both of our calendars of courseeeeee) I went to Bills in Welwyn Garden City for brunch with my friend Emily, where I got these delicious bacon pancakes.
Much more aesthetically pleasing. Bills is a chain across the UK which has a solid brunch menu and is also decent for dinner. Emily had a Fry-Up which looked pretty gooood but she regretted not opting for the pancakes too!
Anyway, thanks for reading about my failings and goings on. I hope you enjoyed and pleaseeeee follow me on here and also at my Instagram @jvrrvdsvul which I update a little more regularly than this blog so you’ll see whats going on before you read about it!
