Happy 2018!



Happy new year, everyone!  I hope that you all had a wonderful holiday break.  I'd been doing a lot of baking over Christmas.   I finally made a batch of pineapple tarts just for us!  In the past, whenever I made pineapple tarts, I usually gave them away to my friend whose son loves them and we got whatever 'extras' that remained.  This time I doubled the recipe and kept a batch for ourselves.  I did run out of filling for our batch, but managed to save the day with chocolate chips!  They turned out rather yummy, so next time, I might play around some more and experiment with other toppers.

I finally made J his birthday cake (his birthday is in Jan, so that means that I will be making one again for him in a few weeks' time!).  Yes, I owed him a cake all this time, so when specifically asked for a bacon chocolate cake, I could not say no.  I did use turkey bacon and dark chocolate, so we could eat it with less guilt.

On top of those, I also made a batch of Almond Choc Chip Chia Seeds Cookies.  No, I didn't take a pic of those and now they're all gone.  I'll have to remember to take some pictures of them next time.  Those are my favorite cookies to make (and eat!).

I look forward to discovering and exploring new recipes this year and experimenting.

What are you looking forward to in 2018?

The biscuits look delicious. At first I thought they were topped with lemon curd, but pineapple sounds yummy too. I am not so sure about bacon and chocolate though... but then I have never tasted it. Have a fabulous 2018.

I baked a lot and ate too many sweets over the holidays, yet your photos have me longing to reach through the screen and taste these beautiful treats!

I baked more than usual this holiday...I even made fudge that haven't made in ages. Now I've had to freeze most because the kids either are dieting and don't want or have their own. Your tarts sound yummy. Hope you had nice holidays too and that you have a great 2018 year.
