My son and I have been in our new home for about a month and a half! I feel like there are a few little things I still need here and there, but overall, I feel completely at home! That seems to be all that matters to me.

With settling in, I am still figuring out where everything goes. My kitchen has 3 big appliances on the countertop, which I’m sure it could be more efficient. I recently bought an Instant Pot and have been making simple meals for my son and myself.

Do you have a chocolate fan in your home? What if you were to add mint? This is a fun brownie to try!

I love brownies! I have never baked a batch at home, but the idea of having leftovers and even crumbs to add as toppings to ice cream sound so delicious! My son and I love our ice cream. My son loves mint chocolate chip and we recently made Mint Chocolate Chip Dip!

I wanted to combine both brownies and mint, so we made Mint Chocolate Swirl Brownies! We are looking forward to making these again because my son loved them! I hope to make another batch, just so we have leftovers for ice cream! The brownies make an extra special treat, especially after dinner. We really don’t have dessert, so these would be a nice treat for us!
