Chocolate brownies

Hi Everyone,

You know spring is here by just seeing berries are stocked high on the supermarket' shelves. Although, I adore winter weather, this winter wasn't particularly welcoming. It was way too wet and windy. But, the beginning of spring is just perfect. I enjoy walking under the sun with cold air blowing lightly at me.


H bought me these lilies. They were beautiful, weren't they?! I love the pink shades against the satiny white. Normally, when I bought flowers, they wouldn't last longer than one week. Is this common? Do you have to give an extra care to keep them longer?

I baked these brownies for our dessert the next day. We knew we had to have something sweet to comfort us. To me, this is my absolute comfort food. Strangely enough, I love to have this slightly fridge cold.

H raised his eyebrows when I told him about that. He was so surprised, and couldn't believe what he just heard. He prefers to have his slightly warm with a scoop of ice cream.

At the moment, I need more brownies to keep me going in constructing the new face of kitchen notes. Wish me luck!

Enjoy the beautiful spring, folks!
