A Hug in a Cup and a Bowl

It was a beautiful afternoon to have my cup of tea out side, so I decided to sit and sip in my herb garden…


Perfect afternoon for Sipping tea, enjoying weather, and catching up with my journal.  

 A cup of tea and yummy brownies in the herb garden on a sunny afternoon. YES!
 I grew up drinking tea a lot. It was like a little family event at my house. Everybody gathered to the porch in the afternoon for  tea  and for a little chit chat.
 My mom still continues the habit…
So I am…
My cute cat tea pot  kept my tea nice and hot. I bought this tea pot when we were moving to this house. Still looks great.
IMG_0473 IMG_0469I make brownies all the time as a tea time snack. It is so easy to make, and they vanish after few hours. Nobody knows what happened to them;)
I have to admit that I’ve been gotten into brownies before tea. Well, I had to because I had couple of tea before.
If you follow me on social media, you might have seen that somedays ” it’s a multiple cup of tea day” for me.
There you have it. A little secret. Now you know  what I meant:)
Oh my!

Kyle wanted to join me too.

He waited patiently for his share…
 IMG_0460Still waiting patiently…
Nope he didn’t give up:)
He knows he is getting something if he can’t eat what we eat. 
 Who wouldn’t want to have a piece of brownie…
I wish I could share a piece with you,so I thought at least I should share the recipe with you. Then you can have your own plate of yummy brownies…
Here’s the recipe. Enjoy!

One bowl brownies

Ingredients :

113g Unsweetened chocolates
3/4 cup butter
2 cups of sugar
3 eggs
1 teaspoon of vanilla
1 cup of all- purpose flour
1 cup chopped nuts
15g coco powder


Use a whisker or spatula to mix the ingredients since this recipe doesn’t need much mixing.

  1. Heat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Microwave chocolate in a large bowl (of course in a microwaveable bowl)on high 2 minutes or until the butter melted. Stir until chocolate is completely melted.
  3. Add sugar in to the melted chocolate mixture. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix until well blended.
  4.  Add flour and nuts. Mix well.
  5.  Spread the mixture into a greased 13 x 9 inch pan.
  6.  Bake for 30 to 35 minutes. When it’s done, you will know by sticking a tooth pick. It comes out with fudgy crumbs. Try not to over bake it. 
  7. Let it cool, and cut into squares or any shapes you like.

This recipe will make about 24 brownies. You can adjust the measurements as you wish.

 I hope you are ready to make brownies. If not, your self control is better than mine.
What is your favorite snack at the moment?
Do you enjoy drinking tea as much as I do?
Have a wonderful weekend!

  1. What a great post – made me feel very nostaligic – I grew up in a family that considered tea the solution to every problem… Cold? Have a cuppa. Broken heart? Kettles Hot. Fight with a friend? You need a hot cup of tea. Broken leg. Sit down I’ll make you a cup.

    1. Thank you so much. you got me friend. That’s the kind of family I am coming from, and tea really helps. Tea is the solution for anything. YEY! to another tea lover.:)

  2. Your tea pot is super cute – I know quite a few cat lovers that would make a perfect gift for! The brownies looks delicious too – one bowl recipes are awesome!

    1. Thank you Lauren. It will make a great gift. They will love it. I bought it from “Pier one” They might still have it. Yeah this recipe is so yummy. Try it, you are going to love it. 🙂

    1. Aww Thank you so much for your lovely comment. After few hours they were gone, so imagine the deliciousness.:) It is actually a tea pot. A cat holding mouse. Some people think it’s a cookie jar sometimes. I would love to have a tea party with a blogging friend. That sounds lovely to me. 🙂 I would love to check your blog. Thanks for visiting my friend.
