Cranberry and Chocolate Cookies...and some newsOk, the news first. Some of you may have noticed my distinct lack of blogging in the last few months and I can now explain why. Basically, I have not wanted to go near the kitchen, the supermarket, open a cook book or even read your lovely blogs...yes I'm pregnant! Honestly though, the first few months have hit me hard and it has been so unlike my previous pregnancy (which I sailed through). All I can say is I felt yucky, almost all the time. On the bright side, having nearly reached the 4 month mark, I am now beginning to get my cooking and baking mojo back. I opened a cook book for the first time in nearly 4 months last night - Nigella Express..and I think I'm inspired again!
Lowen and I baked these cookies today for Daddy. The recipe came from 'Apples for Jam' by Tessa Kiros and they are divine! A real must try. Enjoy and see you all soon
