Downton and Sugar with my Sugar

Out of respect for the last 5 people in the world that have not watched season 3 of Dowton Abbey I won't spoil it, but seriously? I have to remind myself this is basically a soap and in soaps tragedy upon tragedy likes to rain down.

I also could launch into a much larger Edith discussion. It is interesting to me that presumably we have come so far as women, but much of Edith's character in particular reminds me the many ways we haven't from a social judgement standpoint, although of all the girls this season she is out there breaking the female mold. 

Consider yourself spared. :)

This morning it wasn't raining. And despite being overly tired from my final Downton marathon we got out for a very quick walk. Have to take the dry weather when you can get it because mostly we have a cold rainy week ahead.

Last night I made this chocolate chip cookie, peanut butter cup, brownie:

Vegan style of course and all from scratch recipes:

Chocolate Pumpkin Pie Brownies
Chocolate Chip Cookies
Copycat Peanut Butter Eggs (minus the chocolate coating due to laziness)

I am actually surprised how great these came out. Not because I expected otherwise, given the combo, but because I didn't like the chocolate chip cookie dough raw, which is unheard of for me. Not sure what was going on there.

However you want to make these lovelies...enjoy. They are worth it. Have a great Tuesday. 


  1. Your brownie looks way more appetizing than ours!!

    1. The brownie is amazing! I hadn't made that recipe before either and it is totally a keeper. Probably one of the better vegan brownie recipes I have made yet.

  2. We have been enjoying all the sun and dry weather around here too. There won't be much of it for about a week as it has started raining now.

    Your baking is making me want to eat some chocolate!


    1. You will be pleased to know that I have eaten enough chocolate in the past 24 hours for pretty much all readers...actually, I eat chocolate pretty much daily anyway.

      Today wasn't sunny sadly,but we did stay dry. I hope you don't see the rain we say this past weekend. It was amazing!

  3. Nim looks quite regal standing there above those trees in the background.

    Vegan or not, I'll bite it! Looks delicious!! I loooove chocolate!

    Hope you had a good Tuesday!

  4. I want that muffin/brownie or whatever it is!! Looks devine. Oh yes... Edith.. I'm addicted to Downton!

    1. I seriously think you could manage a GF version. It was an amazing combo. Thankfully I had the fore-thought to only make 6 of them.
