Chocolate Walnut Brownies & A Happy Mother’s Day

DSC_0566

It’s March already and as always a time when there’s lots of baking in my kitchen.Spring Fair’s,Birthday’s, Mother’s day  and of course Easter baking to be done as well.Had a lovely chat with Mom earlier on today.Just wishing her a Wonderful Mother’s Day.That’s when my son realised he had almost forgotten to wish me.Ofcourse he came around and did so with a great big hug.

Hundreds of dewdrops to greet the dawn,
Hundreds of bees in the purple
clover,
Hundreds of butterflies on the lawn,
But only one mother the wide
world over

Today was just one of those days that I was craving some thing chocolate and decadent.Though just not sure what to make.

Now  Mom of course loves to ask me the eternal question-“So what did you bake today”? And our chat then centers around exchanging recipes and we can go on for hours with our food banters.Yes,there you go….A huge  inspiration for all the foodie mania in my life…My lovely mother.

Well I said just don’t know what to bake as yet! All though I did know that I  wanted to write-up a blog post just for her.

In celebration for Mother’s Day –Happy Mother’s day Mama! Here’s to a wonderful mother.

I went about the day with recipes to type out and cooked up some dinner and even thought about what I’d write in the blog with still no clue as to what to bake.It’s been a busy weekend in the kitchen and just wanted something easy yet decadent to put together.

A quick scan around the kitchen and my pantry and minutes later came out a batch of sinful chocolate Brownies.This one is all time favorite with my family and easy to put together.

Brownie lover’s and who isn’t…You are in for a treat.So go ahead and give these a try.
