raw brownies & the lady sweater


Raw brownies were made, thanks to Deb, and I recommend them wholeheartedly. The only trouble I had was not having enough dates to make them stick together better. It blows me away that such simple ingredients can be so good - you'd swear there was sugar in them. The first night we had them in little bowls with heavy cream drizzled on top and now my husband has started mixing a bit of raw brownie into his granola. Me, I just sit and eat it with a spoon right out of the pan.

The lady sweater, has only been ripped and restarted once. That first buttonhole derailed me. I had to finally give in and practice a buttonhole technique with some other yarn and after that, well, it's coming along okay. Now I want to hurry up and get the next two buttonholes done before I forget again.

The raw brownie recipe is both below and here where it began. Just make sure you have enough dates!

Wishing you some happy weekending. x

I put the crumbs from my last batch on some vanilla ice cream. Yum oh yum. I agree, so incredible that such a simple thing works so well. Glad you like! And that knitting!

Thanks, you all! Well, one of those little pans of brownies is gone, one to go. I'm finding they stick together better the longer they're in the freezer, which is good! :)
