Since we've been eating a little lighter and healthier the past few days, I think it's time to reward ourselves with a decadent dessert. Who's in?
Reeni from Cinnamon Spice and Everything Nice posted this recipe a week or two ago and I was ga-ga. Reenie makes the most incredible confections and pasta dishes; I heart Reeni's blog.
I am a fan cake and cupcakes and yes Blonde Duck I like pies, but there's just something so satisfying about a moist, chocolaty brownie that makes you feel all is right with the world.
