Brownies come in all shapes and sizes. Just search the internet and you’ll find plenty of different recipes for these tasty treats. This brownie recipe has been used by my Mama for as long as I can remember. I have memories of using her old weighing scales, putting the brass ounce weights onto one side of the scale and pouring the ingredients into the brass bowl on the other side. When she passed it on to me it was still written in ounces, although I have since converted it into grams!

These are super simple brownies, a great stock cupboard make for when you need a chocolate fix quick!

I whipped up a batch of these muffins a couple of weeks ago when we had a visit from The Boy’s sister and her two boys. It was so lovely to have them visit and spend time with them. The recipe is really simple and so easy to follow – it has five steps and that includes turning on the oven and setting out your muffin cases! They were well received, one of the nephews had about 3 I think!

This post should come with a health warning. You will want to eat a lorry-load of these once you have tasted them. They are soooooooooooo yummy but oh so sugary, your teeth will not thank you for eating these. Then again, there are always dentures!

I really like loaf cakes. I like the look of them, the way you can cut a satisfylingly big slab of loaf cake to accompany your cup of tea or coffee. They are easy to make and you don’t have to fiddle around with any fancy decorations or piping if you don’t want to.  They look lovely and rustic just the way they are.

Hello everyone! Hope you all had lovely weekends, the Boy and I went to Totnes and Dartmouth for a wander, a cream tea and charity shop bargains.

Now then, let me share with you my mentions for the week gone by….

Rainbow nails

Oh yes, I said rainbow nails. They also happen to be polka dot rainbow nails just to top it all off! My friend Lex has started a nail blog, Talonted, to document her mani adventures. Seriously, the things this woman can do with nail polish, sticky tape and sponges is amazing!

Continuing with the colourful Mentions, this super cute illustration is also a handy tool to work out what all those different piping nozzles do. I inherited a load of nozzles and I have no idea what half of them do! This helped me work out at two of them!

Hello Sailor

When I stumbled upon these brooches on Etsy a little squeal escaped from my lungs. You see, I have a thing for nautical anything. I have an anchor door stop, a Sailor Jerry bag, a sailor dress…I could go on but I won’t. Maybe I was a sailor in another life? Anyway! Back to the brooch!

Aren’t they adorable?!

Have you found anything on the web last week? Share your finds with me!


I’ve been itching to bake since moving to Devon and I finally have the chance! I’m currently on a diet, so my opportunities to bake lots of sweet, calorie-laden treats are few and far between *sob sob*. Luckily I have a big team meeting at work this week and as I’m the new girl (and giving a presentation!) I thought I would try my best to impress and take some cake along to bribe them share with them.
