Today the baking bug bit. Badly. At around 2pm I fell asleep for 30 minutes and when I woke it was with an itch that I just had to scratch- by baking chocolate chip cookies… and then cappuccino muffins too!!

I decided on a chocolate chip cookie with a difference in that I used white chocolate chips and I must say that it was a really good alternative. The muffin recipe is from my book dec.a.dent and coffee time was a very yummy affair with fresh hot muffins and sweet delicious smelling and yummy yummy tasting cookies!
