Brownies brownies BROWNIES! Oh, where do I begin? Aren’t they wonderful? The crunchy outside, the gooey inside – the lightness offset by the denseness…they are good for elevensies, awesome for tea, a delight for pudding and…dare I say it?

The Goats Cheese and Fig Verdict….

This was compltely delicious – OK, so they didn’t look quite like the picture..but it was totally YUMMY! Firstly, I’d say that, before cutting the goats cheese, keep it well refridgerated. I made the mistake of leaving it at room temperature, which I should have known would make it soft and harder to slice neatly..Nonetheless,...

This is from a recipe card that I picked up in Daylesford Organic – and it really is so quick and easy…and when removed from the oven, hot and smelling like the contents of a bakery, I admit that, in an instant, the butter and Marmite were out in full force, to devour with this...
