Rainy day - Donna Hay

Well it's the school holidays and one of the go to activities when you have to stay inside is baking a cake or cookies.  Sometimes the effort to clean up takes more time than the actual baking!

We are making some Donna Hay brownies today.

I love Donna Hay. I find her recipes so tasty but so simple.

 I love her magazine and so I had to check out her Woollahra store.  It is a very cute idea of an old general store selling beautiful homewares, packaged cake/cookie mixes and a few other items.

Here are some pictures of her store.

dont you love the paper straws?

beautiful displays

a pretty birdhouse

You can also purchase a coffee and something yummy while you're there.

When I went there , I had an overtired toddler in tow. I must go again!

I hope you have a delicious day
