When I start writing one sentence paragraphs, that only means I’m busy.

Peppermint Christmas Brownies I have a full house full of noise and laughter. I have my brother Ernesto and his wife Marian, my nice Valeria and my nephew Daniel, at home for the holidays and I can be happier.

Peppermint Christmas Brownies  I feel, however, kind of weird having helpers in my kitchen.

Peppermint Christmas Brownies #byenrilemoineI adapted the recipe from Annie’s Eats. These brownies are minty, super rich and decadent and combine an unbeatable pair: chocolate and peppermint.

Peppermint Christmas Brownies I made them with my niece Valeria, who is 7, and likes to bake. She was an amazing and helpful sous chef.

Peppermint Christmas Brownies #byenrilemoine I know I’ll be having a merry, merry Christmas… It’s always like that when my brother is around. After all Christmas is the season for the family.
