     It’s fair to say that I am easily led. Particularly when it comes to sweet treats. After reading about chocolate and peanut delights on wheres the beef? and cake mistress, it was inevitable I would make a batch for myself. I decided to make these for my friend M and her little boy, J […]

Mr M and I recently visited Next Door Diner for a Friday night date. Next Door Diner has been on my to visit list for ages. It has a great pedigree in that it is owned and run by the team behind the Breakfast Club (which I loved), and which is located next door (get it?). […]

It seems I keep reading about chocolate chip cookies – David Lebovitz had a recipe for salted butter chocolate chip cookies and Tartelette had one for 36 hour gluten-free cookies. A few clicks later and I was suddenly reading an article from The New York Times on the quest for the perfect chocolate chip cookie.

I was highly amused when I read about the opening of a new restaurant on Smith St named Huxtable.
