About us

We are a hard working, family of eight. Swimming in the sea when we aren't busy on our small holding. Daddy dragon has to work away a lot, so this blog is to let him keep up with our adventures at home.

A cookie a day 11: Our perfect chocolate chip cookie


I appreciate Daddydragon may not approve
But just in case one day our hatchlings ever need this,
Here is our family cookie recipe

Cream together 170g butter with 220g brown sugar, 115g granulated sugar, 1 egg+1 yolk and a spoonful of vanilla.

Add 1tsp baking powder and 300g plain flour.

Add 400g chocolate chips.

Today, I weighed the dough as I went an 1.3onz is the perfect cookie size.

Roll into balls, making a small dimple in the top.

Bake for 11 minutes at 180 degrees. 13 minutes for crisper cookies.

If you want chocolate cookies - use 40g cocoa and 260g plain flour.

Make them your own by chopping nuts, dried fruit or your favourite chocolate bar.

The Village tree lighting


Such a gentle pleasure, 


The village together, listening to the brass band, waiting for the lights.
