Another cookie recipe, another one with chocolate. It’s just this time of the year that I lust for more chocolate than usual, I guess. Also it goes perfect with some coffee as you can see and every excuse to sit down, rest my leg – aka my right ankle that still hurts since I injured it 2 weeks ago – is good for me.

Also pralines are not only for Christmas and now that I made these walnut and chocolate pralines, I surely make them throughout the year as a treat.

Doesn’t this picture just draws you in? I just feel like sitting down again and having a coffee and some pralineswith you. A good idea, right?

I found this recipe which was originally not with walnuts but hazelnuts – but one uses what’s around, right? Also I’m a big fan of walnuts and since I get them *cough* for free *cough* from my parents, I wouldn’t use anything else.

I treasure these little moments very much: the time when I sit down and sip my coffee. I sometimes envy smokers (am I allowed to say that) for their excuse to take a break regularly. I’m the one that even postpones drinking and going to the toilet when I want to get something done.

Although it would be sometimes real good, just to take a minute, think about what needs to be done and how to make it. In the end that would safe me a lot of time and nerves. However – as the name of this blog suggest anyway – I’m a maker which also means sometimes that I do before thinking. Get busy instead of making a plan. Think quick.

My boyfriend is the opposite and both has it’s pros and cons. Coffee sometimes gives me the excuse I need to rest, think, plan and organise.

Do you know what I mean? Do you sometimes feel the same?
