Things We Love Right Now



{Chunky, colourful necklaces}

Every now and then, we come across some things that seriously make us happy. This week, it was all about food and continued welcoming of the summery weather that is making itself known around here. Here are a few of the things we are loving right now.

Have a great weekend!

{Harry's Lamington ice cream}


{International chocolates from Japan and Italy}

{Freshly baked brownies}

STANDBY BROWNIES


150g butter
¼ cups caster sugar
3/4 cup cocoa
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 eggs
½ cup plain flour

Preheat oven to 100°C.
Place the butter, sugar and cocoa in a saucepan over low heat and stir until the butter has melted.
Spoon into a bowl and add the vanilla and eggs, whisking well.
Sift the flour over the mixture and whisk to combine.
Spoon the mixture into a 20cm-square cake tin, lined with non-stick baking paper.
Bake for 30 - 35 minutes or until centre is just set.
Cool in tin and cut into squares to serve.
Makes 16.

    1. They truly are - each look great paired with the classic white, black or grey tee!!!

      It's pretty different, but oh so Australian!
      We found down where all the gourmet ice creams are.
