A while ago I was blog trawling when I read this . I instantly fell in love with this gorgeous garment and left a rather gushy comment to tell Larissa what great work she'd done. I was totally thrilled when she emailed me to say that as the 1000th commenter on her blog she intended to send me a little gift. Aren't bloggers just wonderfully generous?
So you could have bowled me over today when not just the pattern (in baby and childrens sizes) arrived, but a really spunky stitch holder, green pear stitch markers and a cake of soap that smells like heaven came too. Seriously I really want to eat it, it smells that good. And it is spookily like she know about the post that went up about an hour ago as there was a tub of sleep balm as well. I expect that to be christened tonight at about 2am.
So wow and thanks Larissa, you are a wonderfully generous and thoughtful soul and I love each and every bit.
And I made this recipe for the first time in years. One bite and I can't believe I waited this long between slices! This is just the yummiest, richest, most scrumptious thing you ever tasted.
For aussies you can find it in the ancient old Women's Weekly beautiful biscuits book - look in the section on peanuts. Personally I don't think you can go past walnuts for the topping, reminds me of those divine little french walnut tarts. The base is crumbly and custardy, the top sticky caramel. Fan-bloody-tastic.
