My Favourite Pins This Week
Cookie brittle is a thing! Flaky, crumbly and buttery, this is a delicious take on the humble chocolate chip cookie. Plus, I think cutting things into triangles looks like such a pretty idea, and so much more inviting than squares. Pinterest link is here, and the original recipe post is here.
Got leftovers? Check out these mashed potato and stuffing leftover pancakes, perfect for combining leftovers into new flavours. Bonus points if you sneak a little flaked turkey into them. Pinterest link is here, and the original recipe post is here.
It’s been a while since I’ve posted a cocktail in my round ups, but this Brandy Apple cocktail is super easy and delicious, and you could leave out the brandy for an alcohol-free version. A perfect festive beverage for the the season! Pinterest link is here, and the original recipe post is here.
How pretty is this embroidery? This single ply laceweight yarn with slight tonal variations looks absolutely magnificent as a detail on these jacket cuffs. Pinterest link is here, and the original post is from Instagram, here.

How is it the weekend already?! I feel like I blinked and this whole week just disappeared. This weekend, we are going to put our Christmas tree up, and I’m super excited!

Coming soon- my mini stocking advent calendar update! Have a lovely weekend, everyone!
