What do you do when your niece looks bored and won't leave the house? Make the box of brownies her mom left in the house, that's what. I think she was a happy camper after that.
One of my favorite memories as a kid
was getting to lick the bowl or the beaters after mom made something yummy. Especially if the word chocolate was involved.
Now if only we had some vanilla ice cream to go with them. Maybe next time!
