Let's start the month with something sweet. With such a thing as these delicious clementine and tonka madeleines perhaps?
I am finishing the month of January (still in lockdown, always in lockdown) by sharing a delicious recipe for cannellini bean dip with crispy shallot. Something really easy to put together at the last minute and to enjoy with a variety of small dishes.
Raise your hand if, when you reviewed your 2020 goals list, you also had to laugh at it more than anything else!
I remember setting those goals and writing my annual blog post about it. Full of hope that with 2019 not having been so great, what could possibly go wrong in 2020! Ha! Double ha!
And as I finished setting my goals for 2021 last month, the news came in that Northern Ireland was entering a much stricter lockdown until at least early February if not more (as I type this, the lockdown has been reinforced for the past week already). Ah well!
As my third Christmas recipe and last blog post for this year, here is something delicious to make for the holidays or wrap into edible gifts: apricot and pistachio tonka bean biscotti.
I could not finish the year without another adaptation of my chocolate chip cookies, this time a holiday version with a recipe for gingerbread chocolate chunk cookies.
For the holidays this year, I have decided to share not just one but three delicious recipes for little things you can make for yourself or gift to people, starting with these easy-to-make apricot and hazelnut blond chocolate mendiants.
