happiness is a warm slice

Hi all! How has your week been? I've had a busy one, but I always try to make time to do some baking. I find cooking or gardening are great ways to have a little time-out from illustrating work whilst still being productive! This week I baked this yummy Cinnamon Date Slice mmm! It's really easy, and as far as cakes go, its not too super naughty either. The recipe is from the Country Women's Association recipe book, which has so many awesome recipes contributed by women in country towns across Australia who have been creating and collecting recipes for decades. I've written the recipe below - I highly recommend you give it a try. Have awesome weekends, wherever you are :)

Oh and stay tuned, next week I'm starting a new little segment - hopefully regular - where I do a mini-interview with an artist or crafter who's work I really love... You'll LOVE the super talented lass I have lined-up for next week... can't wait to share with you all! xoxo
