Baby Number 5!

 

I bet you guys all thought I was 5 weeks overdue by now. Well, at one point I thought I was going to be. This dude was born at 41 weeks and a day (almost a month ago now!). It was the longest I had ever been pregnant and I was very dramatic about it. I'm sure all my real life friends can attest to that with some well deserved eye rolls. I never was more motivated going into labor, which is probably why the whole thing only lasted 2 hours and 30 minutes from the first contraction (I did make it to the hospital!). We have been enjoying every snuggle since.

Well, as all you Instagram and Facebook followers know, I have had a tradition of working on perfecting my brownie recipe during every pregnancy since baby #2. There's just something about third trimester and brownies for me. Can't explain. 

 This pregnancy I was determined to finally crack the brownie code before little dude made his appearance and I actually succeeded. The perfect one bowl, shiny topped, chewy and gooey, chocolatey brownies are now almost within your grasp. And they turn out fabulous gluten free too. I still have yet to actually upload the photos and type up the recipe and all that, but I have every intention of doing that next week. In the meantime, here's a little preview of what's to come...

 


 You know how my intentions usually go, but hey. I'm a mom of 5 now. I love making recipes and photographing food, but man. I love these kids so much, it doesn't even compare. I'm so thankful to all of you who have stuck around all these years just to have a peak into my crazy kitchen. Love you all. xoxo
