Easter Celebration Tart

Easter Celebration Tart

There are so many celebrations throughout the year. Birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, housewarming, engagements, weddings....And that's before we even get started on the set holidays such as Easter, Mothers and Fathers Days and Christmas. It doesn't matter what nationality you are, celebrations always revolve around food. And we all have our own traditions.

Peanut Butter Seeded Cookies

The lid on my food processor broke. Completely. I picked it up after being washed and it fell apart.

I checked my receipt and yes I am in warranty! I rang the company and no I don't have to go back to where I bought it from, since the photos I sent showed the lid would be covered under warranty and if I check my emails in about 15 minutes I will have all the details I need to return the broken lid and a new one will be sent out to me. Great! How long does this...
