Yay! A theme I can certainly relate to.........image.png
While many people were learning new skills during lockdown, I was discovering new sweet treats......not cooking them, just eating them. Some of which I will share this month, along with my other favourites.
 
Many of my most favourite memories of my mother's cooking involve 'sweet treats'.  Melting moments, coconut jam drops, lemon pudding, six inch tall, double sponges filled with cream and dusted on top with icing sugar and strawberry jelly cakes.  I remember the first marble cake; being so intrigued by the marbled chocolate, pink and vanilla  all in one cake....I thought my mother was a magician...how could she get all the colours to appear like that???..
     
 On the rare occasion when I went grocery shopping with my Mum and Grandma, I was allowed to buy one or two lollies. I usually chose two green  frogs (not the red ones...haha). I could get two for 8 cents, in those days
  

Today, there is such a wide variety of  sweet treats....and doesn't everything taste better, when covered in chocolate?...haha
Please join me this month in sharing some faves, both old and new.

Our colour of the month (CoM) is black. Some may say that this is rather boring or a non-colour, but I think black makes the pastels pop, the brights pop and the stripes positively sparkle.  :))

Hope you're feeling better soon, Bev. Love the bunnies.

I'm with all the rest, Love your bunny squares, but really hoping you feel better... fast!   The hot lemon and honey mixture seems to be universal, because it is so soothing, but recently on the All Creatures Great and Small series, I heard that you could add a good amount of whiskey for increased curative effect, if you are so inclined.   Either way, I'm sending healing thoughts your way.  ~~~    :)

Love the white bunnies on the black Bev. Plenty of chocolate should fix you, but seriously look after yourself and stay safe. 

Cute rabbits popping out of the darkness! Hope you will soon be feeling much better Bev x

Cuties!!! Bev, I wish you a speedy recovery and take the hot lemon and honey advised by Lesley, it absolutely will help you feel better soon. 

Thank you sooo much everyone for the well wishes....am feeling half human today....hahaha.

A 40x40cm. square of a Jammie Dodger. A shortbread biscuit with a red jam shaped heart in the middle.

My sons loved these when they were small.

Fabulous interpretation, Marion. I shouldn't worry too much about the cro-knitting experiment when you can produce crochet work like this!

Brilliant square! (And now I'm craving Jammy Dodgers!)

Positively DELICIOUS, Marion!!!

I don't think we get these over here, but something very similar...but not anywhere near as famous as your Jammy Dodger. It is such a cute name, I shall have to google it.  :))

Marion, this is a super square! My son loved them too when he was small, actually, he would be delighted if I bought them now too :))

A fabulous idea and beautifully made Marion X
