Woooaaahhh did u hear the thunder earlier on?? the lightning... scared the s*** out of me lol... it was raining so so heavily and now it has stopped.... the blue sky is out... and the weather is absolutely wonderful now...
So anyway.. today I decided to try out Donna Hay's Chocolate Cheesecake Brownies... Brownies and cheesecake? What is there not to like? I have said bef that desserts are my downfall. I'm not a potato chip kinda girl. I dont like to snack, really (hubby says: "Sure"...)... I dont like candy. Mildly ("Sure...") interested in ice cream ... unless it's on a brownie. Cookies are fine.. but it has to be homemade. To me, the best cookies are the ones just out of the oven. Heavenly! Chocolates are ok.. but a chocolate cake? Oh gosh...the right chocolate cake can give me an orgasm.. hahahahahah I am KIDDING! But you get the drift. Basically .. I like my desserts... Cheesecakes, puddings.. you name it.
Honestly, if you are a chocolate lover, you gotta try this brownie. Seriously. You have to!! Make it for your loved ones, for Valentine's, for birthdays.. or even for ur afternoon tea... enjoy the recipe!
