Sorry I've been away from my blog for awhile, life was bringing me to the other direction. It has been pretty hectic here.

I am longing for spring, raining and foggy most of the time lately. The temperature is still cold but I thankful it hasn't been snowing for awhile now. Rain fell pretty hard last week end. We were trapped in the house just relaxing. The sound of rain drops somehow turned my mood toward baking again, as well as my hubby and son were asking me about something good for dessert. While they were playing I spent time in the kitchen alone making brownies. Chocolate is always become our family favorite. That explain huh why my diet doesn't work.
