We Need a Little Christmas: Peanut Butter Brownie 

Well it’s up. It’s November 15 and my tree is up. The lights and strung, the ornaments are glistening in the reflection of the light and the glitter has successfully grinded into my carpet for another season.

Now I know what you’re thinking – “It’s only November 14! Why oh why, the horror”. Well you know what, it’s been a trying year and it’s about time we all start to celebrate a little!
