Zesty Lime Brownies

Some days, when I can't think of what else to bake, I break out the chocolate.  It makes everything taste better, right?  Well, perhaps not everything, but you know what I'm saying.  One thing that always makes people happy is a tray of crisp on top, fudgy beneath brownies - perfect with a cup of coffee or a glass of milk.  They go really well with wine too (like the sparkling Muscat which I discovered on holidays recently).

Taste That!

It's hard to believe that Taste of Dublin has been in existence since 2006, where it started in the grounds of Dublin Castle before moving to the Iveagh Gardens, entertaining and feeding people for the past 11 years.  The 2017 Festival kicks off tomorrow at midday and I'm here to give you a sneak preview of what to expect once you've bought your ticket.

Normal service will resume in 3, 2, 1...

I can't blame you for thinking that I'd disappeared off the face of the earth - I'd lost my writing mojo, you see.  After a much longer recovery from surgery than I expected, I was knackered.  I barely had the headspace to cope with the post-op blues, never mind a frenetic return to the day job with an awful lot of travel, so something had to give.  I'm sorry that it had to be Babaduck, just for a little while.

Mind you, I haven't shut up on social media - Facebook, Twitter, Instagram (and now IG Stories) - I'm using them all and sometimes I think they all get much more reaction and engagement than the basic written word.  It's time to get my act in gear and sleep less, write more. Well, that's the plan anyway.

So, how have you all been while I blithely ignored you?
