    Girls, I got a great recipe :)
    Bloomin' brilliant brownies

    Ingredients
    • 200 g quality dark chocolate (70%)
    • 250 g unsalted butter
    • 75 g dried sour cherries , optional
    • 50 g chopped nuts , optional
    • 80 g quality cocoa powder
    • 65 g plain flour
    • 1 teaspoon baking powder
    • 360 g caster sugar
    • 4 large free-range eggs



    Method
    1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F/gas 4. Line a 24cm square baking tin with greaseproof paper.
    2. Snap the chocolate into a large bowl, add the butter and place over a pan of simmering water, until melted, stirring regularly. Stir through the cherries and nuts (if using).
    3. Sift the cocoa powder and flour into a separate bowl, add the baking powder and sugar, then mix together.
    4. Add the dry ingredients to the chocolate, cherry and nut mixture and stir together well. Beat the eggs, then mix in until you have a silky consistency.
    5. Pour the brownie mix into the baking tin, and place in the oven for around 25 minutes. You don’t want to overcook them so, unlike cakes, you don’t want a skewer to come out clean – the brownies should be slightly springy on the outside but still gooey in the middle.
    6. Allow to cool in the tray, then carefully transfer to a large chopping board and cut into chunky squares. Delicious served with a dollop of crème fraîche or yoghurt mixed with some orange zest.

    That sounds perfect. I just made, chicken breast, flash fried in oil, with garlic, red onions and tomoatoes and sliced chorizo. Add a few black olives and a little white wine. Cook for ten minutes
    Pop in the oven for 30 minutes on 160
    Served with Mediterranean rice and salad.

    Yummy

    Now for dessert.

    I made blueberry and rhubarb sponge with ice cream.

    8ozs flour
    8 ozs sugar
    5ozs margarine
    3 eggs
    Separate the egg white and whisk
    This makes the sponge fluffy
    Then cook 4 ozs rhubarb in the microwave
    Add the blueberries or any berries you like
    Put the whole mixture together whisked
    Pour into a tray bake
    Sprinkle brown sugar
    Bake 160 for 45 minutes
    Serves six greedy or ten not so greedy
    When cooked and cooled
    Add vanilla ice cream
    Flake out on the sofa for at least an hour after....

    one Day at a time, try to focus on your strengths, you have a great education, a loving family, a lifestyle that obviously many would do anything to have, youth, goals, culture, honest friends. Be proud of yourself because you are here supporting when you haven’t healed 100% yet. Big hug and thanks for sharing your time.

    sure do - and you don't have to bake it ;)

    Ingredients

    • 2 packages (20 sheets) graham crackers
    • 11 tablespoons (1 3/8 sticks) unsalted butter, melted
    • 2 tablespoons sugar
    • 2 8-ounce packages cream cheese, room temperature

      Cream Cheese 8 Oz
      1 14-ounce can (1 1/4 cups) sweetened condensed milk
    • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    Directions
    1. 1. Put graham crackers in a large resealable plastic bag, and crush them with a rolling pin until very fine crumbs form.
    2. 2. Pour crumbs into a medium bowl; stir in sugar. Add butter, and stir until well combined.
    3. 3. Press the crumb mixture into a 9-inch springform pan, spreading it 1 1/2 to 2 inches up the side; press flat. Chill crust in freezer at least 10 minutes.
    4. 4. Meanwhile, make the filling: Using an electric mixer set at medium-high speed, beat the cream cheese in a large bowl until smooth. Beat in the condensed milk a little at a time, scraping the sides of the bowl, as necessary. Beat in the lemon juice and vanilla.
    5. 5. Pour the filling into the crust; smooth the top with a rubber spatula. Cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate until firm, 2 1/2 to 3 hours.
    6. 6. Unclasp sides of pan, and remove cheesecake.

    I do too;

    One large pack of digestive biscuits
    Bash the hell out of them in a plastic bag.

    Add three ones of melted butter.

    Pop in a round cake tin with removable bottom, if not then use a flan dish - press down so firm, butnot solid. Nicer if crumbly.

    Pop in freezer for ten minutes or fridge for 30 minutes

    Mix one carton of mascopone cheese to one carton whisked double cream or crepe fresh

    Optional) Squeeze two limes into the cream.

    Spread over the top of the biscuit base.
    Add grated white chocolate on the top. Sooooo nice

    Talking of Ginger biscuits, ladies you have to try this;

    One large (I like large in everything) packet of Ginger biscuits.
    Soak each biscuit for 10 seconds in Sherry or port or rum.
    Whisk double cream
    Then cover each biscuit I cream and attach to another ginger biscuit until you have a long log. Then cover the whole log in whipped double cream
    Refrigerate for an hour
    Pure indulgence the alcohol soaked into the biscuit.

    Thanks for the recipes. I will give both a try. We don’t have Graham crackers but will use some digestive biscuits instead.
