I've been back in the kitchen getting creative and it feels so good. The weather is nippy so it's the perfect time to crank up the oven and get back to baking. Shelter in place has given me time to play with ingredients and potter about with pots and pans.

These days I don't bake sweet treats (trying to stay off the sugar) but I still love baked goods of the savoury kind. I've been devouring kale chips drizzled with olive oil and sprinkled with nutritional yeast. Peeling chestnuts hot from the oven. And making rosemary and thyme flavoured mini muffins with buckwheat flour. Flours often make me crash but this recipe has egg in it and the protein seems to balance out the flour.

I love sitting at the table with my family to eat all the goodies when they're hot, straight out of the oven. The simple things really are the best.
