do yourself a favour, get a quality knife

3 weeks to go before cold storage puts this promotion to... cold storage.

i have used really good knifes before and the quality is just amazing! this is a much appreciated gift especially for spouse who cook. 

cold storage's promotion has been a while and we bought this a month back. you only need to get one here, get the 7" as it's great as a multi purpose knife.

This is a truly decadent, rich, sinful snack... but we love it!

it's so easy to make. takes about half an hour. learned this from the king arthur flour's blog where you could learn a lot from every post.

1 cup butter
1 1/2 cup sugar (i used 1 cup brown sugar)
3 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon light corn syrup (forego this!)
2 cups pecan or almonds, crunched and toasted
about 2 2/3 cups chocolate chip

pecans are expensive here so i added some hazelnut which is about half the price of pecan.

toasting the nuts is easy. 170C in the oven for about 10 minutes. you'll see them turn brown. dont wait too long here!
