The very best brownies

I recently discovered Smitten Kitchen‘s famous brownie recipe… and it has literally become a family obsession. I’ve made them four times in the past couple weeks… enough that I think my daughter could probably make them on her own now. I even made them once for my husband to take to work with him, and apparently they were a huge hit in the office. The recipe is dead simple, and they are the best brownies I’ve ever tried. Rich and chocolatey, super moist and just the right consistency. Simple and perfect!

Find the recipe here… and chocolate lovers be warned of potential addiction.

Yum!! I have a great brownie recipe, but am not opposed to trying a new one in the name of research:) These look amazing! And how cute is Ivy’s skirt?!

They look great – will definitely give them a try. Is Ivy’s skirt from niddle noddle (it’s super cute)?

There clothes are lovely, we have the black and white blouse with flowers and it is such a lovely shape.

I just saw your photo on webstagram of the sketchbooks, do you mind me asking where you got them? I love the coloured binding.

Hi Lily,
The notebooks are from CASS Arts. I bought them last week from the store in Hampstead (they were even on sale!).

I hope they still have them. Here’s me thinking it there were from somewhere more unusual and they are actually from our local art shop. Thanks for getting back to me so quickly.
