Let’s just face it. We’ve all gone Biscoff crazy! Not many days go past where I don’t see a glimpse of a crunchy Lotus biscuit creeping up somewhere on one of my newsfeeds. I’ve seen Biscoff filled rocky roads, granola bars, cupcakes, ice cream, brownies, blondies and everything else in between, however it was the cheesecake creations that really caught my eye.
Some of you may have realised by now that I’m quite the peanut butter fan. Mixed with a bit of chocolate and I’m in complete and utter heaven. The combination of the two is definitely a guilty pleasure of mine. And whilst I have a fair amount of those on my blog, this one is rather high up on the list. Especially when Reese’s peanut butter cups are involved.
It’s pretty ironic when you name your blog Always Make Thyme, and then neglect it for over a year due to lack of time, isn’t it? Life was somewhat less hectic when I set up this website a few years back, but since then a lot has changed making blogging a little more challenging to fit into my schedule. A break was well needed, but I’m pretty excited to finally be back.
The excitement as a child of getting out of bed on Easter Sunday and frantically hunting for chocolate eggs is an excitement that most will remember. My sister and I would run around the house looking for the eggs with our name on and then sit down to feast on a breakfast of chocolate. Easter is the one day of the year that it is totally okay to do this… although, I still try and get away with it most others! I use this blog as a great excuse for eating chocolate for breakfast these days. I mean it is essential that I re-taste that Salted Caramel Pie again from the night before isn’t it?
Around a year ago now I had a devastating discovery. For a while I had been suffering with very bad stomach pains and after being fobbed off by a few doctors telling me it was either IBS or a gluten intolerance, I decided to take measures into my own hands. See, I knew it was neither of these conditions, but I just couldn’t work out for the life of me what it actually was. After months and months of trying to work out what was causing my awful tummy pains, I finally got to the bottom of it. Coffee. My all time favourite drink, my saviour in the mornings and my best friend during a bad day had turned against me, and it hurt. It hurt a lot.
