Blue heart

Pancake Day! I made mine yesterday already to heat in the microwave this evening as I knew it would be a struggle having been out in the cold all day.  As part of my day job making pancakes is something I do on a regular basis. I can’t remember if I wrote on here about having made goodness knows how many whilst representing my organisation at the Sheffield Food Festival last September? I think I could probably make them in my sleep. At the end of this post I will share my recipe for chocolate sauce which is a favourite in our household and so simple to make.

Today I am sharing another heart, but this time in blue so I can share it over at Crafty Boots for their current blue and white challenge. Be sure to hop on over and see all the lovely projects.


This started life as a  plain wooden heart that I picked up from Ebay. I began by covering it on both sides with some of the pretty “bridal swags” paper from the Gecko Galz Pocket Full of Posies paper collection. Then I sanded the edges and added some Brushed Corduroy distress ink. I attached some ruffle lace using double sided tape.

In the centre I put the heart padlock image from the Gecko Galz Heart and Soul Stamps digital stamps. I’ve added a piece of silver leaf trim and then tucked in a little blue bird which I cut from one of the Gecko Galz Birds of A Feather collage sheets. There’s also a little egg !

So back to pancakes! What’s your favourite topping? I’ve always been a lemon and sugar fan and used to love golden syrup when I was younger. One year, my best friend’s grandma served up pancakes with raspberry vinegar which, at the time, I loved. For my sons, it’s all about the chocolate sauce , so here’s the recipe as promised – enjoy!

100g dark chocolate, 25g butter, 1 tbsp (15ml) of golden syrup and 6 tbsp of milk. Melt the chocolate, butter and golden syrup. I do this in the microwave on full power for 2 mins. If you don’t have a microwave use a bowl over a pan of barely simmering water. When it has all melted, stir in the milk until well blended. You can make this in advance and then reheat gently.
