I know a lot of you are probably still lamenting the end of summer, but not me! Summer has it’s advantages; lovely fresh produce, long days, sunshine, and cocktails galore to name a few. But, as much as I love sunshine, I hate the heat. It does not agree with me! The sun may be hibernating more and more as  we delve into autumn and the days are already getting much shorter but in return we get crisp air with cooler days and colourful foliage. And we may start saying goodbye to the strawberries and peaches of summer, but we can say a big hello to the blackberries and figs of autumn, and not to mention the absolutely gorgeous, warm spices that dominate this season. Yes, I think it’s safe to say that I am big fan out autumn. Especially because it means I can give my favourite summer cocktail an amazing autumn makeover with these delicious Blackberry, Cinnamon and Fig Margaritas! Yum!

Being a food blogger is hard work. There’s the recipe planing, the recipe testing, the photographing, editing the photos, writing the post. A lot goes into these humble little posts. But I think the hardest part is coming up with the recipe name! Especially for something as over the top as these beauties! I mean, if it’s a vanilla cake with chocolate frosting, that’s easy. But when so many layers make up the final product, each as delicious as the next, how do you decide on a name that does it justice and really tells your readers what they’re in for, without writing an essay as a title? I swear, naming a child would be easier sometimes.  Hopefully my final recipe title has captured the deliciousness of these cookie dough brownie bombs that I’m about to share with you!
