What Thea Did Next: Cuddles, Cheekiness & Chocolate

Thea has been extra cuddly recently (which is saying something, as she is a cuddle monster!) She has taken to saying “I want ALL the cuddles!” and really means it.

Easy gluten-free walnut brownie recipe

Who doesn’t love brownies? No one I’ve ever met, that’s for sure! I made these with Ava and Thea and they turned out very well, even if I do say so myself.   They’re to take to a BBQ and the host can’t have gluten, so I substituted Dove’s Farm Gluten Free Flour for normal flour and hoped for the best! Ava loved breaking up the chocolate and Thea liked shouting out the numbers as I weighed the ingredients.
