Triple Layer Brownies

These might be my favorite dessert recipe on The Beard and The Baker. One of my favorite bloggers, What’s Gaby Cooking has a few recipes for “slutty brownies” and this is just a little variation of those.

Know Her Name, Learn Her Story, Give Her Hope

What do you love about the holidays? Personally, I love visiting my multiple Christmases and spending quality time with my family making wonderful new memories.
