saucy

Yes, this might just be another chocolate post and you might say I've had a craving... but that's usually the way chocolate goes. It creeps up on you like that and there's no turing back, no not ever... not usually. These self-saucing chocolate puddings have got to be one of the easiest things I've ever made and who doesn't love a good easy dessert quite like this? I know I've been wanting to make these chocolate pots of goodness for-ever. I'm glad I did.
Want to make these? I know you do. Here's the recipe.

eat me

brownie cake
1 cup all-purpose flour 1 tsp baking powder 1/4 tsp salt 150g dark chocolate (70% or higher) 3/4 cup butter 1 1/2 cups sugar 1 tsp vanilla extract 3 large eggs 1 cup coconut 1/2 cup of pecans (or any nut)
Preheat oven to 350 d. Mix the flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl. Melt the chocolate and butter over a double boiler of barely simmering water. Remove from heat and let cool a little. Add the sugar to the chocolate mixture, stir in the vanilla then the eggs, one at a time. Fold the dry ingredients into the mixture, then gently fold in the pecans and coconut. Put into a prepared 8in pan and bake for 30-40 min until slight firm.

CNE trip and the giveaway winner!

Hello everyone! I know, I know.... this blogpost should have been done last week, but alas, work has been a bit crazy and I'm just having the time now. I did get to visit the CNE one of those days and here's some pic's from that day's trip. I must say the sand sculptures that we saw were just AMAZING, there's just so many awesomely talented people out there!! I would have loved to get more photo's but the weather that day was pretty unpleasant. Oh, and don' t you all worry, I didn't forget about the giveaway winner!! Kim at Two Good Cookies, you won these three prints! Check out her pretty awesome food blog too!
Ps. I did forget about the brownie cake though so sad to say that will make it's debut next post with a few more bits of awesomeness. Hope you all have a great weekend!!
