I followed Martha Stewart’s recipe that does not have cocoa in it.

Made Double Chocolate Caramel Brownies again and I foolishly tried making them with a brownie base instead of the chocolate cake mix it needed and it browned…too much. I trimmed all the edges and corners off and the centre pieces taste juuuuust fine. Learn from me and use your favourite cake mix for these and you won’t be let down!

Tandoori kebabs! Threaded well-seasoned cubed chicken breast, with some zucchini, bell pepper, and red onion onto skewers to make for fun grilling.

Tandoori chicken, salad with wild tomatoes from our backyard, a simple vinaigrette, and freshly baked rolls. All from scratch, nothing new.

Quick dinner for my brother. Microwaved a potato, later adding frozen meatballs, grape tomatoes and string mozz cheese and finally topping with fresh basil from the garden.  .
