It’s the most wonderful time of the year, the time when you most receive and offer gifts. Personally, i love homemade gifts, adding your personal touch and thoughts, turns any simple gesture to a gift of love. At the end this is what Christmas is all about, no?!
Let your presents this year be expressive, offer JOY, PEACE, LOVE, HOPE… homemade shortbread cookies to your loved ones. Remember my motto?! (Mother teresa quote) we don’t do big things, we do small things with big love!
Very simple and creative! Bake letter cookies and create the word you would love to wish for the one you are offering to. Place it in a box, bag or any package of your choice and spread the joy!
Doesn’t make you smile to receive one of these cute packages? or see your name made with cookies on your plate at the Christmas eve?
I am sure your colleagues at work, neighbors or friends will be happy to know you were thinking of them and that you made specially for them this little unique gift full of love.
This year I am offering joy to my loved ones. Wishing you all the happiness in the world, and may the birth of Jesus flourishes joy in your hearts!

Fondue was always presented in a special pot where we dip long stemmed forks of fruits, marshmallows, cake or bread. I want to tell you, you don’t need these exact utensils anymore. Fondue is now simpler than you think.
Whip up this exceptional treat in less than 2 minutes! In any heatproof bowl put 200g of dark chocolate (must first be chopped into small pieces so that it will melt evenly) with 250 ml of cream and heat it for 1.5 mns in microwave. Stir the mix until the glossy dark brown chocolate appears. Add 1 tsp of rum (optional) and it’s ready to dip in any fruit of your choice, cake or brownies and even marshmallows. Use the small size skewers instead of the forks.
For instance, i used strawberries, brownies and marshmallows.
Who can resist this luscious chocolate fondue! You don’t need a special occasion to serve it. Indulge yourself and your loved ones in this heavenly treat.
There are various possibilities of food to dip in; strawberry, banana, pineapple, melon, cake, brownies, cookies, marshmallows… and some people like to dip in salty crackers or pretzels. Bottom line, chocolate goes with everything!
