BROWNIES (and a little nostalgia)

  I have been meaning to post these recipes since a long, long time….but life gets in the way of blogging and the old laptop plays up like your stubborn teen and the Y key needs to be stabbed atleast 5 times before it works…… in the interim moments of inspiration come and vanish and before I know it,…

COCONUT CARAMEL MINI BITES

    I was speaking to a friend last week and she asked “So what’s the plan for Valentine’s Day?”  Am I the only one who gets asked stupid questions? Every year I reply “Nothing special” and feel like a freak. This time I answered “Oh I am wearing my new black, lacy corset with the…

Homemade lime juice just didn’t taste the same. 7-up, Sprite and Pepsi weren’t part of our life then. He squirted the juice of 2 lemons into the glasses with a wooden, worn-out lime squeezer, mixed…
