Baking in Not so Flaming June

I blew the sugar free diet out of the window a few weeks back.  I know I can lead a completely sugar free life if need be but I have chosen not to.  We all need a little sweetness in our lives right now without going overboard dipping into the cookie jar, but something sweet does help to satisfy a rather bitter feeling that has been present in the last week or so.

Today the sun popped by to say hello.  I went outside to greet him with the lawn mower and shortly after we parted ways the dark cloud brigade floated on in.  I got back inside the house before the rain troop and decided to bake a peanut butter chocolate brownie with white chocolate drizzle. Not a very seasonal dish but comforting none-the-less.

For many reasons this has been one of the strangest Junes I have ever encountered.  Let's hope the latter half of the month takes an upturn in fortune and the summer decides to pay us a visit.

Oh heavenly wow! Thanks for the shot of pure deliciousness
and yes, I'm so with you, I know that sugar-free is pure
health goodness but, my God, life is short and sugar is a fine
way to toast the day sometimes! Your image is proof positive.
I don't want to miss all of that all of the time.
Bravo for indulging from time to time:)

It does look delicious and I don't think I could ever live a sugar free diet!! June has indeed been a bit of a wash out hasn't itt? Xxx

Cutting down on sugar is probably something we all need to try and do, but a piece of cake now and then is surely a necessity of life!
