Berry, Apple & Almond Muffins {Recipe}

"So what do you put in Olive's lunchbox?" my girlfriend asked me yesterday.

It's something I get asked a lot. Generally its a small bread roll with vegemite or jam, a piece of fruit, maybe a cheese stick and something baked.

Muffins make a regular appearance.  They're just so easy to whip up using whatever's lying around in the fruit bowl, pantry or freezer.

Today's flavour combination came about from having some leftover almond meal from making Kransekake last week, the last of the bag of frozen berries and a container of cooked apple in the fridge.

I've been cooking up apple a lot lately since Olive's teeth have gone wobbly. (The tooth fairy will be visiting again tonight.) Cooking it in the microwave is a breeze and means you have apple pieces as opposed to apple mush. Pop it in a container and throw in a spoon and your lunchbox is apple friendly again.

Once the muffins are cool, wrap them up  in small freezer bags and toss them in the freezer…

Double Choc Raspberry Brownies {Recipe}

Every now and then you experiment in the kitchen and create something magical. This is one of those moments.
I first whipped up these brownies for a BBQ to thank mates for helping shift a very heavy steel workbench. After a lot of beer and wine you don’t want a fussy dessert. It’s much better to have something that satisfies the sweet craving and can be eaten with fingers.
I shared the recipe on the blog at the time and they were really popular. Then I accidently killed my blog and the recipe was lost... And then I lost the photos.....
This weekend I'm catching up with friends, one of whom has been begging me to re-share the recipe on the new Di-licious blog.
So Sandy, this one's for you.
This brownie is a bit different from regular brownies in that there’s no melted chocolate in the batter, just some chocolate chips. 
And raspberries.
I used white chocolate chips because that’s what I had in the pantry. You could easily substitute milk or dark chips but I kind of like white …
