Do not judge and you will not be judged.
Forgive and you will be forgiven.
Give and it will be given to you.
Luke 6: 37-38

Hazelnut brownies


Serves: 12

225g butter, melted
300g of brown sugar (or more depending on your taste)
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
3 eggs
225g plain flour
110 g dark chocolate (70%) at Liddle
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
80 g grilled hazelnuts

Preparation method Prep: 20 min |Cook: 20 min

1. First, preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Lightly grease and flour a 23 x 30 cm baking tin.

2. Next, heat butter and dark chocolate. I used the microwave

Then add sugar and vanilla. Add eggs one at a time.

3. Sift flour, cocoa, salt and baking powder and add it to the mixture. Beat it slowly until flour mixture and butter mixture are incorporated, add the hazelnuts then mix again.

4. Pour it into the baking tin and bake it for 20 minutes or until a skewer poked into the centre comes out clean.

5. Let it cool. The brownie will be crumbly if you eat it right away. Let it cool and it will be chewy and not crumbly. Patience is a virtue.

Note: I changed this recipe!

If you are diabetic, there are sugar-free chocolates available at some supermarkets and you may use Isomalt as substitute for sugar but in very small amounts. Editor's note:

This recipe was edited by staff, to conform to measures and ingredients that are familiar to UK and Irish cooks.

Jesus continued on as if...

They stood still, their faces downcast. 
18 One of them, named Cleopas, asked him, “Are you the only one visiting Jerusalem who does not know the things that have happened there in these days?”

19 “What things?” he asked.

“About Jesus of Nazareth,” they replied. “He was a prophet, powerful in word and deed before God and all the people. 20 The chief priests and our rulers handed him over to be sentenced to death, and they crucified him; 21 but we had hoped that he was the one who was going to redeem Israel.

And what is more, it is the third day since all this took place. 
22 In addition, some of our women amazed us. They went to the tomb early this morning 23 but didn’t find his body. 

They came and told us that they had seen a vision of angels, who said he was alive. 24 Then some of our companions went to the tomb and found it just as the women had said, but they did not see Jesus.”

25 He said to them, “How foolish you are, and how slow to believe all that the prophets have spoken! 

26 Did not the Messiah have to suffer these things and then enter his glory?”

 27 And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning himself.

28 As they approached the village to which they were going, Jesus continued on as if he were going farther. 29 But they urged him strongly, “Stay with us, for it is nearly evening; the day is almost over.” So he went in to stay with them.

30 When he was at the table with them, he took bread, gave thanks, broke it and began to give it to them. 
31 Then their eyes were opened and they recognised him, and he disappeared from their sight.
32 They asked each other, “Were not our hearts burning within us while he talked with us on the road and opened the Scriptures to us?”

Well, it's pretty difficult to find excellent jokes these days...tonight I found this one about a special parrot..
One day a man goes to a pet shop to buy a parrot. 

The assistant takes the man to the parrot section and asks the man to choose one. 
The man asks, ''How much is the yellow one?''

 The assistant says, '' 2000.'' 
The man is shocked and asks the assistant why it's so expensive. The assistant explains, ''This parrot is a very special one. 

He knows typewriting and can type really fast.'' ''What about the green one?'' the man asks. The assistant says, ''He costs 5000 because he knows typewriting and can answer incoming telephone calls and takes notes.'' 

''What about the red one?'' the man asks. The assistant says, ''That one's 10,000.'' 
The man says, ''What does HE do?'' 

The assistant says, ''I don't know, but the other two call him boss.''

The letter to the Hebrews

Résultats de recherche d'images pour « hebrews 1 »

This epistle was written as a word of exhortation to call Jews back to the Lord.
It is a wonderful book . We don't know who wrote this book. Really God wrote this book. It elevates Christ and shows that Christ is far superior than anything else.
The author immediately focuses on the deity of Christ, he elevates Christ in the eyes of his readers.
The Greek word Christos, the equivalent of this word in  Hebrew is Messiah Those words mean the 'anointed one' . Jesus when he was raised  from the dead, Jesus is the anointed one. What does this mean that Christ is the anointed one?
These first three words tell us. The key word is better. Christ is better than the prophets (the first 3 verses) Christ is better than the angels (the next ten verses)
What did God do? He spoke
When did He speak? In the past
How often in the past?
In which way? various ways
He spoke through the prophets
How did God chose to reveal himself?
He revealed himself through the prophets. In which ways?
Dreams, visions, speaking to them
God revealed himself to those prophets, A prophet is one who speaks for another. Ex 7 v1 Moses'prophet was Aron.
These first verses are all about the old testament and tell us that Christ is better.
Jesus created everything
Jesus radiates the glory of God.
He is the exact impression of God Jesus said When you've seen me, you've seen the Father!
Jesus being called Emmanuel, Emmanuel meaning God with us!
Let there be light and there is light.
His words created all things.

The book of Hebrews focuses on Jesus Christ: therefore, it is one of the greatest books for hours of discouragement, defea...
We know that the book of Hebrews was written by a believer, under inspiration, to a suffering, persecuted group of Jews ou...

I'm so excited to learn more about the book of Hebrews. I hope that your week goes well. Be blessed in the name of our saviour Jesus-Christ.

Lazy week in London

While I was up above in the sky, well, in the plane, I felt very grateful to our Father in heaven as the girls and I were blessed with a great hols! Two weeks abroad, one spent in London with Imo and the second week in Malta with Imo and Cam. Here are a few photos. Last time I went in a plane was in 2012 when Steven and I went to Rome and I enjoyed the experience again!
From the plane 19 Oct Ryanair Poitiers to Stansted

At an Indian restaurant, N3

On the Thursday Imo took me to Hackney city farm established in 1984. Their aim is to give youngsters and local people the opportunity to experience farming. Nearby, there was an exhibition by #Green creates so we had a look. Great stuff!

I particularly liked the pieces above! 
Sadly I realise that if you stop talking about the environment, or recycling for instance, its importance may be forgotten! We travelled by bus in London and we were pleased to notice that more drivers switched off their engines when not on the move. This should have a significant impact on harmful emission levels which build up around stationary traffic. 
More to watch this space!
Have a blessed evening.
