The joy of baking!!!

There is something sooo satisfying about gooey chocolate mixture! It's beautiful velvety chocolate texture is somewhat soothing to the soul! I baked chocolate brownies today for the first time (I'm really not a bonafide baker), and actually enjoyed myself. Cooking for the sake of it, not so enjoyable but baking lovely chocolate brownies was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. The finished product was magnificent :)

I have just turned 30 but I still get embarrassed by my parents.... I don't live with them anymore you see, I am married and have not lived at home since I was 18. But still I am mortified by what my parents say...and do! They are brilliant people but sometimes not the best in diplomacy :-)

For example...My father said the other day in front of my husband and the rest of my family i.e my mum and brother 'Octopus's! Are they not the yokes with the big testicles?? No one said anything for at least a minute or so. I STARED into my pasta.... My husband spat his squid out over the table, looked wide eyed at me and I stuttered "No Dad think you mean tentacles!!!"
