Abandon hope, all ye who enter here....
Doin' it for themselves..

Blowup : and I don't mean David Hemmings...

OK, if the police had to save someone's life with my photos, there would be no hope for them. Even with psychedelic '60s enhancement they would still be very, very, bad. But I do not let that stop me. Look in my albums and be amazed, very amazed!!! There have been no recipes for maybe 4 days, so I neeeeed one now!!!

Chocolate Fridge Cake

  • 400g good dark chocolate
  • 125 g butter
  • 100 g nuts ( pecans, macadamia etc)
  • 100 g dried/glace fruits of your choice
  • 1 packet of Chocolate-coated Scotch Finger biscuits, roughly chopped

Melt the chocolate and butter over a low heat and stir till smooth. Add the nuts and fruit and the roughly chopped biscuits and mix well. Spoon into a greased and lined tin - square, rectangular, springform, though I like a narrow bar tin, and press down firmly. Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour.  Dust with cocoa, slice and serve. For a more grownup slant, add a splash of liqueur or soak the fruit in rum or brandy.



cindy the photos are great!


Cindy, thanks for your kind words about my photo's, but visit Little Birds, she's brilliant! http://littlebirds.typepad.com/little_birds/2005/08/photo_tips.html
I actually read this and thought about how I take photos and the last 2 blog entry photos have been taken thinking about her tips. That should help. but I agree with the taking of about 10 photos for every good one. The Bali picture of the frangipanni flower was a fluke. Would you believe that Mother Nature put that flower right there, no human's involved! Honeymooners luck I guess!
We love those mini baking M&M's, we can only get them at Coles up here, but we put them in our Women's Weekly Choc Chip bickies. (I say we, 'cos I finally got my husband to bake!) I was on a poor day yesterday though - I brought some Bendigo yarn in the morning at the market, but you should just not comprimise when it comes to chocolate!
