EASY HOMEMADE DARK CHOCOLATE ALMOND BROWNIES

Are you a brownie fan? Me too! In September my friend Caitlin visited and we made brownies, lots and lots of brownies. We made one batch and I was instantly asking to make more. They were so so good and so so easy. I don't get to cook that often with friends so it was so awesome to share the kitchen with Caitlin. And, let's be honest she did most of the cooking.

I forget how much I enjoy cooking with loved ones until I'm thinking back on that memory.  We've entered the holiday season and it's a perfect season to spend time cooking with loved ones. Slow down and make memories. Cook up yummy food and share a meal together. And throw in some brownies at the end.

I baked these brownies up on Thursday evening and Tyler and I had them eaten by Sunday, that's how yummy they are. I also love that they are so easy to whip together with ingredients hat I almost always have in the kitchen. And because they are homemade I don't have to wonder what weird ingredient might be in them if they would have been store bought. Win, win! xo. Samantha
