chocolate peanut butter brownies

Bakers Corner sent me a big box of chocolate recently and we had a lot of fun baking with it. OK some of it didn't make it into baked goods because it was just too good to eat. And I'm a big chocoholic. But I did use some in my favourite brownie recipe. Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownies. These are super fudgy and delicious. I know that you can find all sorts of brownie recipes these days but this is still my failproof never let me down brownie recipe that I've been making before I got … {Keep Reading...}

You might remember we visited Kangaroo Valley last year and thanks to the kind owner we were back there again. The week leading up to the weekend was something out of ‘Alexander and the terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day’ ….we had a nasty gastro bug go through most of us and I missed out on a […]

I don’t watch a lot of TV, not even the news or current affairs anymore and it’s been a long while since I’ve fallen in love with a series. I think Big Love is the last one. Anyway, I was reading this book and Sally recommends watching Lark Rise to Candleford. One episode in and I was […]

How beautiful are the magnolias at the moment. We had a big old tree at the front of our old house that I loved so much and then was thrilled to find not one but two trees here at the new house. Mind you they aren’t as big and the one in the front yard […]

I remember a friend told me she received her registration for homeschooling last year. I was thinking to myself wow she really does things by the book. I’d just homeschool without registering. Wrong. There was quite the paperwork at my end to get my homeschooling plan written up and approved. In fact I think NSW has […]

This is such a sweet pattern. Wallaby by tiKKi is available to knit in 4, 8 or 10 ply which gives you lots of options. I love knitting in 10 ply for the speed and also because it makes a nice warm little cardigan for a little baby. I knit this little cardigan in Bendigo […]
