Brooke's Best Bombshell Brownies
First time i did these after reading reviews i messed around a lot with the recipe and they came out too dry and thin. The second time they were too cakey and thick. I didnt give up because allthough i had got them all wrong twice the flavour was still the best just not the texture. The third time i did them i reduced the sugar by 100g (1/6th) and baked in a tray 11 x 9 although i did have to cook them for just over 40 minutes and they were absolutely perfect. I got exactly what i was looking for, each brownie really did give a crispy top, fudgy centre with a cakey surround and a chewy afterbite all in one go and the thickness/height was exactly what i wanted. i made them again and added some chopped pecans for some crunch and now have exactly what i have tried many different brownie recipes looking for. I have had good other brownie recipes before but always wanted a better one. Brookes brownies taste i feel is what really makes this a great recipe as the chocolate is intense but not too dark choclatey more a cocoa chocolate taste if that makes sense. For me it was getting the sugar right as i did think they were too sweet whilst not losing the texture i am going to next time try the brown/ white suger as others have but am scared i will ruin them again as is just right but i do think brown sugar could add something too Thanks Brooke !!!!

Thai Monkfish Curry
This dish was fantastic i am not a huge fishlover and had not had monkfish before but this was lovely. I found the monkfish to be meaty and mild in flavour the sauce was wonderfully fragrant with the coconut, lime and heat hitting every taste bud. I made the dish exactly to the recipe, there was a lot of sauce but this was delicious over rice.
