Stuff it !!!

It's been one of those days today... nothing has gone right and 3 projects have already ended up in the bin!
Maybe I should stick to cooking - I seem to be doing ok with that.  Yesterday I tried making this Chestnut & Cranberry Roll. This was fantastic... a real hit and even though mine wasn't quite as neat as theirs, it still looked fab at the table.

Just beware of the recipe - I didn't read it before I started and ended up with my two rolls, plus extra for stuffing a turkey! 
For this week's sweet treat I made some Biscotti. It's much easier to make than I thought it would be. Here's the recipe I used. I added glace cherries, instead of the dried ones, and substituted chocolate chips for the raisins.

I made a little sleigh to hold some Biscotti, and even tough I'm not very happy with it, I thought I would show you it, because it's a cute, little gift idea. I got the Sleigh template from Clear & Simple Stamps It's designed by Sue Berker. Take a look at her little Sleigh - it's just so elegant.
