Amazing Frozen Falls

image

It has always been a dream of mine to see the Niagara Falls and I hope to make it there someday. But when I saw pictures of the falls today I was absolutely astounded even more by its beauty as the icy polar vortex has had effect.

Frozen shards of ice layer upon one another, that normally free flow into one another to create one of the ultimate waterfalls on this earth!

I just had to share these pictures with you all, some of you may have seen them already but I had to record it!

image

A quick note to all our American and Canadian friends please be careful in these very cold conditions and take care!

It’s the weekend and I’m up again at six! Recently this has been happening quite a lot, though it gives me a little me time before the day really starts. I have a mug of masala chai in one hand and I think to reach out for the tin of biscotti that I satisfyingly filled yesterday!!! No, No, No! It’s too early?! Oh go on then only one! No one will know they’re all fast asleep hehe!!!!

This is my own recipe for biscotti and I wanted to incorporate an Indian feel to this wonderful Italian biscuit. Pistachios and coconut are very much used in Indian sweets and nuts are used in biscotti so I took the best from both and came up with these light, tasty, sugary treats. I’m enjoying one as we speak….

INGREDIENTS

80g unsalted shelled pistachios chopped
200g plain flour
50g desiccated coconut
120g granulated sugar
