Make lots because you’ll want to wow everyone you know with it. From the original site: They are good make-ahead cookies and keep well in an airtight container for weeks. Theoretically.

Croissants you can conquer

Croissants you can conquer

This recipe stems from Julia Child’s traditional Croissants and Pain au Chocolat recipe. It might seem a bit daunting at first, but you realise that’s because each step is really detailed out, to help walk you through the entire process.

Refreshing Pimm's Cup Cocktail

Refreshing Pimm’s Cup Cocktail

“What is a Pimm’s Cup?” you might ask. Well, I’m here to tell you. It is one of the most refreshing cocktails you’ll ever imbibe.

A Waffled Croque Madame

A Waffled Croque Madame

The Novice Chef  is one of my fave food blogs!  Check out this idea: What is the difference between a Croque Madame and a Croque Monsieur? Eggs. It’s how I always tell them apart…and the easiest way to remember. A Croque Monsieur is basically a type of bread, a type of swiss cheese, and ham. A Croque Madame is all of that, but with a fried or poached egg on top. Which is exactly why women are better than men a Croque M…
