  1. They look lovely, I have a pack of walnuts open at the moment, would be a good way to use them other than sneaking from the packet! :)

  2. Beth, I'd seen this recipe in my copy of the book but have never made them. They definitely look worth making!


  3. Oh I have a bag of sour cherries, I should totally put them in some brownies

  4. I would love those two additions as well Beth.

  5. Your new layout is cute. Love the brownies - they look and sound fantastic.

  6. This is one of my favourite books and I have cooked from it lots of times.

  8. Cherries and chocolate has to be one of the best combinations ever, I love the sound of these!

  9. Fruit, nuts and chocolate, sounds like the perfect combination to me. Yum.

  12. Those brownies look good! Love the sound of the sour cherries.

  13. Walnuts and sour cherries - two of my fave things.

    Unfortunately they're two of my husbands least faves.

    What a shame. This means I'd have to eat the whole batch myself! Tragic...

  15. oooo, what a great flavor combination! I would have never thought to add sour cherries to brownies. Thank you for sharing the recipe.

No Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie

This No-Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie is going to be my go to dessert this summer. A zingy lime cream encased in a sweet biscuit crumb - much like a no bake cheesecake...but better!

It's quite rich too so the recipe made in a 20cm springform tin will easily feed 8 - 10 people, the perfect size for a family gathering or summer BBQ.

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.
