Eat Me

An appreciation for someone, who has a generous heart and is clearly generous with her time as well. It is a sort of Ode to the Chocolate Brownie.

Known as @Mozartsgirl on Twitter, Rachel has two blogs; and yes you won't get any prizes for guessing that she's a Baker (noting the capital 'B'). These blogs are:

"Mozartsgirl's Blogspot"


"Brownies for Mozart"

Oh, and one final thing, you might not have noticed, she is a fan of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Wolfie to his friends, which does of course include Rachel.

In the course of a couple of months she sent to me, at her own expence, two large boxes of her brownies - the first were walnut based, the second revelled in the glorious title of "Peanut Butter Swirls". I hesitated at the thought of peanut butter based chocolate bronwies at first, but my hesitation was only momentary. As soon as the box was unsealed, the aroma hit me and I was in dreamland! You might not be surprised, therefore at a few references to "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland".

I hope you enjoy the poem: "Eat Me"



  1. What can I say to this but...thank you! You are very welcome - so glad to have 'met' you, and I'm sure that one day it will be in person. Spreading a little happiness with brownies is my way bringing joy to this sometimes dark world!! I couldn't resist that peanut fragrance either - I took a chance that you'd enjoy it too! The poem is one of the nicest things to have happened to me this year. Thanks again x

  2. She deserves every bit of it----how wonderful....both the poem and the lovely miss Rachel!!

  3. As a father of a Royal Marine Warrant Officer and a Royal Navy Petty Officer I can see your meaning.

  4. Thanks for the comment, John Gillies. It doesn't take much to appreciate the aroma and taste of these exceptionally rich chocolate brownies.


Don't leave without letting me know what this article made you think, how it made you feel ... good or bad, I'll take either.
