. yum yum * brownies .

i love to entertain and have family and friends over. i also really enjoy having a dinner party with a theme...have you tried that? so much fun can be had!! and the spur of the moment get togethers are the absolute BEST!! for instance, this past weekend it started out as a nice dinner for our friend's birthday, a party of six. we ended up with twelve guests...it was so much fun to just expand the table, put some more food on the grill, pick up some more garlic bread, and have plenty of wine on hand.  a wonderful example of how life is so short and we need to ENJOY it while we can! the recipe for this week is from my late sister...she would make it when she was having family over. i hope that when you try it, that you will think of wonderful memories from your past as well.
