  1. Oh that recipe sounds devine. I was wondering what powdered sugar was, but when I read further I realised it is what I call icing sugar. I found your article on fish interesting. I am not a huge fish eater but decided to widen my taste buds and have a go at eating it. When I did my weekly online shop and I ordered Tarakihi but they were out and sent me hoki. I had no clue this was endangered. So thanks for the post. I will make sure the next time I try eating fish that I choose a more sustainable fish.

  2. These brownies look fabulous. Even though it's hard fro me to give up on the ease of "the box" I am going to try out your recipe with the kids next week. Btw, loving the blog. Keep up the great work!
