Dark chocolate and cashew nut brownie

Hi everyone...Sorry for being so irregular....Last weekend was a very hectic and happening one....It is birthday and anniversary month in our family and one of my twin sis was here with me for her b'day....We had a blast with her and her hubby and missed the other twin....Love you Tanu .....We went to Vegas, did wine tasting and lot more fun....I made a black forest gateau for her birthday, but before I could take the pics, the cake was all gone....



There is one more happy news for me and my blog....I have been chosen as the notable newbee of this week by Blogadda...The email said..

It's time for blog hop wednesday again...As you know, it is an event started by Radhika of http://ticklingpalates.blogspot.com/.....For this week , I am paired with Priya of http://mharorajasthanrecipes.blogspot.com/....She has a beautiful space , with a lot of interesting recipes.....I chose to make this brownie, as it's my birthday today and I made a cake just last week...So this brownie looked like a perfect dessert to celebrate my day....She made this brownie from JOYTHEBAKER....The only change that I did was the addition of cashew nuts to the batter....It gave a nice crunch to the chewy and fudgy brownie...
