I don’t think I’ve ever gone a day without eating dessert. Do you ever think about how the American community has created a sort of norm for eating dessert after dinner? In my mind, there is no such thing as not eating dessert after dinner because I’ve always done it. <—double negative

The best thing I can do for my dessert habit is make my own and keeping em’ stocked…or I will somehow convince myself that Dairy Queen multiple times a week is okay.

Speaking of DQ- more often times than none I have to convince Blake to just go with me to DQ even though he refuses to order anything because apparently he was born without a sweet tooth.

These brownies are the perfect sweet treat post-dinner. They aren’t the classic American XXL version, rather just a little something sweet to kick your sweet tooth goodbye. Plus- they are made with wholesome ingredients, so even if you have two it’s no biggie!
