I love the brilliant clear colour of the Koh-I-Noor dyes and have decided to join in her colour sketchbook challenge "Close to Home". Having spent the last week dithering about a starting point (now decided but will save that for the next post) I've chosen the colour green. I was rather concerned about the limits of one colour for me personally so green fits nicely. Both the lime and jade in the dyes are very pretty plus I can play around with yellows and blues and still have green!
Unfortunately the cling film (Morrisons) didn't have enough "cling" (sheets 2 and 3) but luckily I had already used a sheet of plastic canvas weighted down onto the wet paint for sheet 4 to give a textural effect .......................
The second book in my cookbook challenge is "The Hummingbird Bakery Cookbook". The Key Lime pie with 2 cans of condensed milk is very, very sweet ............. especially when it has a meringue topping! I didn't actually make it but I did have a hand in deciding that the filling needed a longer cooking time than specified:
Some other things from the book (not all this week lol) ............. Pineapple and Coconut cupcakes (greatly reducing the butter content for the frosting):
Chocolate cookies ................
With regards to the last post, yes, the Brownies could have done with a little less cooking. I did check them at 27 mins but wasn't too sure so left them for 35 (35-45 recommended I think) plus I used silicon bakeware so they were a little drier at the edges. I have a Nigella recipe so will have a go at that one some day too.
