Recicember Day 29: Basic Waffles in a Christmas Present!

What do you get the highly attractive man who has everything? Well, according to my son, a combination treat maker that makes waffles! It looks like a mini George Foreman Lean Mean Fat Reducing Grilling Machine, but it’s red. Oh, and you can’t grill things in it. But you can make mini-doughnuts, cake pops, and…waffles! And […]

Recicember Day 24: Butterscotch Tart

I used to enjoy eating butterscotch sweets, but I can never find them in the shops now. You can get butterscotch flavour Instant Whip (that’s a bit like pudding if you’re American), but it’s not the same as the solid sweet. In any case, what is butterscotch? Alcoholic butter? Butter from Scotland? Turns out, it’s […]
