Easy peasy recipes

I had my Husband’s Aunt and Grandmother over this week and in order to impress them, I called round my Twitter peeps and asked them for any dessert recipes they had. The responses were mouth watering and I realised that I just had to include them on my blog.

Who doesn’t like desserts, they are certainly my favourite thing to attempt in the kitchen as each step in their creation is fun. Mmm licking out the bowl when you’re making brownies is one of the best bits of the whole process and then there is the divine cooking smell and the anticipation of waiting for the finished product! 

So here are some of the suggested recipes that are guaranteed to put a smile on your face and an extra pound on your thighs! And what's more, they are simple, no-fuss, no airs, desserts.
