This is my take on a traditional Mexican cake made from chick peas. I love baking with basic pantry items as I often have them on hand and they are usually inexpensive. This cake uses only 5 ingredients and is very quick to put together. It is delicious served warm, but will develop a lovely dense texture if left to cool completely. This recipe uses a food processor, but a stick blender will also work. […]

These are chewy and delicious and a great biscuit […]

I am finally starting to emerge from the school holiday rabbit hole that I fell down many weeks ago. Today was the first day back to school for my older child thank the lord.

But we were greeted by many other rambunctious children and their very desperate happy parents. And what better way […]
