First of all apologies for lack of posts over the past two weeks, however, I do have a valid excuse; I was moving house! We waved goodbye to our grotty old flat and moved into our gorgeous new home! I cant even put into words how happy I am with the new house. It is a proper grown-up house with an upstairs AND a downstairs!
|Shiny new house|
The day before the big move I decided to bake some delicious cookies and brownies for all the wonderful people helping us move, because I am nice like that.
Although, not everything went according to plan...
The caramel brownies cooked fine (I will dedicate a post to them soon) but when the time came to bake the cookies it all went horribly wrong!
I dolloped 8 lovely walnut sized cookie dough balls onto the baking sheet, popped them in the preheated oven, around five minutes later as I was standing in the kitchen drinking a cup of tea I heard an almighty bang and was showered with glass!
The oven door literally exploded!
The eight cookies I had managed to cook were still a little raw in the middle, so the rest of the batter went off to a friends house to finish cooking.
The feedback I got from aforementioned friend was that the cookies weren't that great anyway, so my quest for the perfect cookie recipe continues.
I cannot wait to get baking in my new kitchen, this weekend (inspired by The Great British Bake Off) I am going to try my hand at bread!
