black beans and chocolate tradition

I deem it to be a new habit. They were a little more effort than I generally agree to, but sooo worth it. my initial reaction wasn’t so great–but these things cold are dreamy. & what a great way to feel sinless (ignoring, of course, the egg & butter content).

Thanks dear friend, for sharing the recipe from here. We’ve always agreed on sweets…

And did you remember how easy it is to be creative? all you need is paper & scissors–maybe less. Anyway, i dare you to make a snowflake & i bet you’ll feel a little giddy at the simplicity of creating something sweetly & satisfyingly adorable. What a delicate way to decorate January windows (even if it’s 60 on the other side).
added disclaimer 1.21.10: I just got this article about Agave Nectar from a friend…

    Ooh, we'll have to try those brownies. It sounds like an interesting combo. Elizabeth has always been a huge paper snowflake maker. I actually bought her a book with interesting snowflake designs for her upcoming birthday. The book even has holiday designs like menorah snowflakes and candy cane snowflakes.

    Naomi must be pretty good with the scissors to be making those already. 🙂

    I've really never met a bad brownie… and maybe I should make some snowflakes myself since I'm not trusting G with the scissors any time soon…

    yes, there was some strong supervision with Naomi, but she's got some pretty trusty kid scissors…& joy, that book looks great! I'll check it out. We have a cool paper-chain book that i was planning to use too, has elizabeth tried those?

    You made the brownies, and I made the blog! Glad you liked them. I'm enjoying catching up on the blog! xoxo
