Z loves food and cooking. I let him watch the final of The Great British Bake Off this week, he watched entranced by the pies and pretzels, but a little disappointed by the wedding cakes.
I’ve been encouraging constructive feedback on my baking and cooking, partly because Z gets upset if we try to tell him how to improve the stories he writes, so I wanted to show him that we can all improve on what we do and it’s ok to tell people how to make things better.
Last week I made these chocolate log brownie cakes, using my now almost perfect chocolate brownie recipe.
‘Mum, if you’d made these in the final, you’d have won’
I might not be able to make pastry, or bread, but brownies, I can do.

Oooh good idea. GG gets so angry if we try to make her improve on what she thinks is already an epic piece of work. Nice brownies lady!
Yes same here, I find it quite hard sometimes. On the one hand I want to big Z up s much as possible, because he is AMAZING, but at the same time, I do feel I should tell him if something is spelt wrong, or he needs help with his punctuation.
