  1. Hello, My name is Maggie, and I'm from the US. I happened upon your blog today while on lunch break at work. Food blogs, especially, have caught my attention as of late, but I have also enjoyed what I call "spiritual" blogs. With this being said, I don't mean in the context of religion. "Good" people are my cup of tea.

    So, I read your blog re boys being ACEs, and you have touched a very deep nerve in me. I was blessed with two children, a girl and a boy, and I also have the most amazing 9-year-old (who lives with me) on the face of the earth! :) He is extremely special, deep, thoughtful, intelligent and wise beyond his years, and also very sad. He has had a difficult life, experiencing more than any adult should experience, let alone a little boy. Because of this, he has never been the "typical" little boy. I've been able to have conversations with him like I am having with you since he was 3 years old! In any case, thank you for your thoughtful and inspiring bog on ACEs. Not a day goes by that I don't try to help him (positively) develop into a wonderful, gentle little man. Congrats to you on your five ACEs!!
    Take care and keep smiling and laughing!! Sincerely, Maggie :)

  2. Thank you. Your words, so beautifully honest and inspiring have come to me on a day when I needed a little sunshine. After perusing your recipes I cant wait to get back into the kitchen and do what I love the most. Thank you for the time and energy you put into your blog, I hope you know that it makes a difference to the people that read it. Looking forward to your next addition. Kelly

  3. Thanks so much for this recipe, I have been looking high and low for the wartime choccy cake recipe. I have fond memories of baking this as a young girl with my best friend and her mother and this recipe/cake tasted even better than I remembered!
    Your blog is just gorgeous, I’m looking forward to trying a few more of your recipes��


Thankyou SO VERY much for making time to comment.
