10 Pictures and Awards!

I’ve recently been given a number of awards from blogging friends, thank you all!

First there is E for Excellence, which I was awarded by three lovely ladies - Elle of Feeding My Enthusiasms, Rosie of Rosie Bakes a Peace of Cake and also Anna of At Anna's Kitchen table. I’d like to pass it onto

Then there was the You Make My Day award which the lovely Maria of The Goddesses Kitchen gave me, thank you Maria!

I and going to pass this one onto Amanda at Little Foodies, who is I hope getting better every day after her operation – you are missed, hope you will be back before too long - I think of you often!

Finally, Anna from At Anna's Kitchen Table and Erica from Oh My Apple Pie also tagged me for Top Ten Pictures meme, this was really fun to do, and here are ten, seven from my pre-blogging days and 3 from here. I’d like to pass this onto

2. Carrot and Ginger Cupcakes from Martha Stewart's Baking Handbook.

3. Victoria Sponge from nigella Lawson's How To Be A Domestic Goddess.

your brownie buttons looks absolutely PERFECT! How did you get them like that?? I made those, but the white chocolate wasn't nearly so nice (maybe it was because it was the third time I had used the same chocolate to dip things, maybe it degrades over time?) do you have any advice?
