Carol Anne's Crunchie Choc Chip Cookies

Posted by Janice Bruce-Brand on Wednesday, October 26, 2011, In : RECIPES 


Just a few weeks ago, I visited my Mom in Knysna, South Africa.  One afternoon, whilst staying at the farm, I came walking into the kitchen only to be greeted by the heavenly smell of cookies baking. I stopped dead in my tracks and my face lit up with a smile.  The smell instantly evoked memories of my childhood...  This is my mother's recipe, so I've called it Carol Anne's Crunchie Choc Chip Cookies.  This is an incredibly easy recipe to follow and is guaranteed to be "flop proof".  I made a...

Just Married & Living the good life in London


Janice Bruce-Brand Hi, I'm Janice. I am not a chef, and I am not a photographer - but I love cooking, eating and taking photographs. My mother is a great cook and this is probably where my love for food began. A few years ago, she opened up her own little restaurant in the quaint farming hamlet where I spent roughly 20 years of my youth! By creating this blog, I hope to share with you my curiosity for just about everything in life that relates to food. Those who know me are aware of just how much I love to document my trips and travels. I hope you'll join me for the ride... I promise to keep you suitably entertained (and perhaps even drooling at times!)
