Nothing takes the edge off a winter's chill like a hot cup of tea and freshly baked cookies.  Then again - much can be said about a glass of red and slice of chocolate cake!

Whatever your pleasure - we hope you'll treat yourself to something sweet this month!

From take along nibbles, to decadent dessert toppings - we've gathered some simply lovely recipes - all cooked up in East Coast Kitchens of course!

If you've got a sweet and simple recipe you'd like to share - we'd love to add it to our collection.

Please email to [email protected] and be sure to include a picture of your sweet treat along with a picture of your sweet self!
