Cocoa Brownies

I made these brownies for hubby today, but unfortunately since I can't eat cocoa, I had to rely on him for a verdict.  He loved them so much that he ate four in one sitting!  The recipe makes 16, but there are now only 12 left thanks to someone being a greedy guts.  At least I know he approves :)

Crochet iPhone Pouch

This is a cute crochet pattern for an iPhone pouch with a neck strap. The pattern below makes an iPhone 4 sized pouch, but it can be easily modified to suit any sized mobile phone (cellphone).

Growing Stevia

About a year ago I bought a little stevia plant online, hoping to grow some natural sweetener to replace some of the sugar in my cooking.  I'm so excited because I've just dried and powdered my first harvest, and it's worked!!

Making Yoghurt

I have been meaning to write down how I make yoghurt for ages, and now I've finally got around to it!  It's really quite easy, and saves us so much money!  Instead of paying $5 or $6 for a 1L tub of yoghurt, it now costs about $1.20 for the same amount because it's just the cost of the milk that goes into it :)
