Hello 2017!

Day two of 2017 and I'm on such a productive run, I'm even updating my (ancient) blog! Shall we take bets on how long this new diligence will last? Meh, maybe not.

Let's rather do a quick round up of all the things you've missed!

Sew&Such launched two new products and had a bunch of very successful markets.

Storage bins! Here's a quick look:

And then I also started another business, Behoudt. I make wooden handpainted earrings and pendants:

Keep an eye out for new products we'll be making in the new year! 

May you have a lovely, inspiring and blessed 2017 with only the best kind of adventures! 

Something new in the shop!

Smaller round pouches! 
Small enough to fit in your handbag but big enough to keep all your cards, keys, lip ice, hair pins and whatnot safe together. Each bag is made from screen printed cotton fabric and lined with a lightweight cotton. They measure 15x12 cm. There are a few colours available. Have a look in my Hello Pretty Store at what I have in stock, or send me a message to request a different colour. 

Chewy chocolate brownies

Lately it annoys the living daylights out of me when I click on a recipe blog post and have to read through the author's entire childhood to get to the recipe. So, without any delay; here's the recipe for the easiest, chewiest, chocolatiest brownies! 

          100 g Chocolate broken into pieces 
(I'm not a chocolate snob, I'll eat any chocolate especially if it's dipped in more chocolate. These brownies are amazing even when using baking chocolate, so I can imagine using a 70% cacao or a flavoured chocolate will be mindblowing.)
75 g butter
1 tsp vanilla essence
200 g castor sugar
pinch of salt
2 eggs
140 g cake wheat flour
100 g chocolate chips
100 g nuts of your choice 
(I left the nuts out, because I was at my house and the nuts were at the shop...so....)

Melt the chocolate and butter together. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well after each addition. Bake for 35-40 minutes at 180 degrees celsius. 

It is so good when it is still hot out of the oven, but it gets even chewier and yummier as it cools down. Enjoy!
