No Bake Brownies

No Bake Brownies

I was inspired to make these no bake brownies because I am in need of boosting up my iron levels, and needed a fun way to do it! I basically took the idea from my walnut-date-balls and turned them into brownies.

I wanted a frosting to go with it, and I have heard of banana frosting and avocado frosting, so I experimented with both and found that I like the avocado more than the banana. I found that I wasn’t able to mask or hide the banana flavour, whereas I was able to mask the avocado. You can try it out yourself and see which you like best.

Lemon Crinkle Cookies

Ever since I seen these cookies on Pinterest, I have been wanting to try them out! It is quite a popular recipe! I noticed that others that tried this recipe, had different reviews and or experiences with it!

Some thought it wasn’t lemon-y enough, others that the cookies turned out fat and round not flat like the original, others said it wasn’t sweet enough that you need icing…so I took all this and more into consideration and decided to just try it out myself!
