When I was growing up, it was always a tradition in my house to bake cookies in the weeks leading up to Christmas. My mom isn’t much of a baker but my sister and I would spend many hours making dough and then cutting out and decorating cookies. Usually we would make plain old sugar cookies and decorate them with green, red and white icing. It was only in my twenties that I discovered this absolutely delicious gingerbread recipe, and it has been the preferred Christmas cookie ever since! Read More
I have been wanting to make marshmallows for a very long time. So when I got my beautiful Kenwood Chef Titanium stand mixer as a birthday gift, the first thing I made was these yummy vanilla marshmallows! I generally believe that anything home-made tastes better than shop-bought, but certain home-made goodies are really streets ahead of the bought variety. Marshmallows fall into that category. The texture is just so light and fluffy, they almost melt in your mouth. Just like little puffy clouds. Once you have mastered the basic recipe, you can play around with all sorts of flavours and colours too.
