Win a Christmas box of Buffalo Brownies [closed]


Hands up, I admit I’m a bit of a rubbish blogger at the moment. Life here is hectic on both a personal and business level. So much so I’ve made mince pies with shop-bought mincemeat and 2/3 of the cakes I’ve decorated for various festive demonstrations have come from a certain supermarket. The other cake was made from a kit. I know, shocking but sometimes we all have to cheat.

Even though it’s chaos here I’ve done most of my Christmas shopping *smug*. Some presents are easy, then others are slightly trickier. Dave Gorman did a brilliant sketch recently about the different between a gift and present. A present is something you’d buy yourself e.g. Kitchen Aid, brownies and yes even socks. Gift is the opposite. Something you buy for someone just because they say they like cooking for example. These are novelty oil & vinegar sets, herb racks and blueberry vodka stilettos.

My most popular present at the moment is brownies and blondies from Buffalo Brownies. We live around the corner from each other and you can always find us at their stall buying the latest batch of Chip blondie or Clementine brownie. My thinking is it better for my waistline if I get someone else to bake them for me.

While we’re getting back on our feet (and retrieving the contents of the garden after the storm this afternoon) Buffalo Brownies have helped to solve some of your Christmas present dilemmas. They are giving away 5 boxes of their festive brownies that will be delivered in time for Christmas. Use them as a present or keep them all for yourself. I’ve heard Santa is partial to a slice too. Anything after the one millionth mince pie.

I wholeheartedly promise there is my festive bake coming to the blog in the next week or two.

    I’ve yet to make a successful run of brownies, mine are more like slabs of cake… happy to leave it to the experts though!

      Oh and the worst gift, the lavender toiletries set from my father (clutching at straws that year I think) or the Winnie the Pooh dressing gown (considering I was living in an accommodation block where you need a dressing gown to walk to the showers in the morning, this seemed a thoughtful gift, except I was 27 not 12 and I lived at work where I like to think I’m more professional than disney cartoon dressing gowns allow…)

    I love Brownies but I am generally quite rubbish at making them (and also updating my blog at the moment seems to take a back seat!)

    Last year we received a scarecrow making kit – which consisted of a broom handle, an old holey sack and some string – with instructions to go and buy some hay to stuff it with. We left it in the shed, maybe the mice have used it to nibble on through the winter…

    There’s one relative who often send me the free gifts she gets from mail orders, like bags.. Useful, I suppose, but not inspiring.

    A stick of Dove deodorant from my fiancé… fault since I said I liked practical gifts that I could use.

    Oooh so many dodgy gifts; ‘American Tan’ tights, some fake red roses sprinkled with glitter, a pair of pink china cherubs?!? All from my lovely MIL (and she really was lovely, she just gave very random gifts). Thanks for the giveaway.
