Happy Sunday, friendly faces! 😀
I feel like I use that line to open up all of these Link Love posts, but it works and it’s kind of become my thing, so why mess? Starting a post is probably my least favourite part of the whole writing process, and I’ll usually skip the intro entirely and come back to it at the very end… which doesn’t always work in my favour because it’ll sometimes have me writing at 11:52pm the night before. As is the case right now.
So how’s your weekend been so far? Mine’s been a nice mix of work and play, fuelled predominantly by a batch of these Flourless Double Chocolate Cherry Brownies…
…. which you should really go check out the recipe for if you haven’t already. And when I say “a batch,” I really mean a batch… as in, not one crumb got left behind. Thank goodness it cooled down so that I can turn on my oven without wanting to die — I may just have to whip up some more… to share with my parents when I go over there for dinner tonight. Obviously 😛
But that’s enough rambling from me! You’re here to find some good links, and I’m here to share them. Hope you find something you like, and I’ll see you tomorrow!
