Hailey’s Chocolate Brownies

When I was young I loved watching my Mam and my Granny baking together. I would always get to lick the spoon when they were finished. The smell of baking always filled our home.x We baked many memories over those years and now with my lovely Granny in heaven I am always so thankful we had that special time together.x

It can be so easy nowadays to forget to slow down, to enjoy each other’s company, there is always something else to do, always something to watch, somewhere to go. Maybe it is because I grew up in the Country side but I loved and still love being at home, hanging out with my little people, making extra special memories whenever we can.x

Raising two little boys who have extra needs means I don’t always have as much time as I would like with Hailey. When we get our moments we steal away to have some fun and I am always so thankful for those special times we have together. I want her to be able to look back when she has grown up and know in heart that she too had a great childhood, that she felt the love we have for her, that she matters just as much to us as Conor and Jack. I know that I spend a lot of extra time with the boys helping them so when I have the opportunity I spend special time with Hailey carrying out activities she loves.xGIRL BAKERS-16

Top of Hailey’s List of things she loves to do is always going to be Baking lol! Mainly because she likes to lick the spoon afterwards but also because she is always so thrilled when her special makes come out of the over. She is always so proud of herself when she holds up her little plate of baked goods and it warms my heart to see her smile.

So in preparation of Baby Jack’s upcoming 2nd Birthday Party Hailey has decided we best have a trial run of her Brownies, there’ll be no complaints from me as they are super tasty! I am not sure where the original Recipe came from as I have an old Recipe Journal that I have kept for years with some of my Mother’s and Grandmother’s Recipes in it. Hailey has claimed this is her own original Recipe so I will believe her lol! x
