Roasting chestnuts is one of my favourite things to do in late autumn and winter. Going into the woods is the best way to gather them, but as the chestnuts I find here are usually quite small, I used store-bought ones for this post. Continue reading
Mmmh…do you smell that? Cinnamon, oranges and hint of pine? The warm and spicy scent of Christmas is in the air!
