valentines!

even though i don’t have a valentine yet :P, i still made some food for my other dears ๐Ÿ™‚ last year i made chocolates, which was sort of time consuming so i decided to make cookies and fudge this year.

the cookies were shortbread cookiesย  made from the recipe taken from simply recipes.ย  But this recipe wasn’t as good as the one i used before for my christmas cookies, maybe because i substituted some flour for cornflour. so the cookies turned out a bit hard for my liking, but my friends thought it was ok. i dipped them in compound chocolate and did some simple decorations. the ones with letters are the initials for the more special people ๐Ÿ˜‰

the fudge recipe was from cooking for engineers, a site that i like very much ๐Ÿ™‚ the stpe by stpe photos and descriptions are very useful, and the occasional scientific explanation is interesting too. ok back to the fudge, the recipe was so simple it appealed to me ever since i read it, so it seems like it was the perfect excuse for me to try it out! the fudge turned out fine, but slightly too sweet. to save time cutting and prying out fudge, i made them in little cases and decorated them with white chocolate.

both makes were well recieved at school (i was worried that no-one would like the cookies cause i didn’t think they were that good), so they were happy and so was i ๐Ÿ˜€

pizza

i made pizza at home some time ago, so long ago i don’t remember where i got the recipe from! i think it’s from bbcgoodfood.com (pizza crust) and the sauce was something i made from canned chopped tomatoes and tomato paste.
