Chocolate Brownies

from Graeme's Kitchen

We met Graeme and Elisma, through a mutual friend, a few years ago. That same friend was kind enough to seat the four of us at the same table at her wedding. That was it! They were officially our couple crush. Also, thanks to them and their beautiful Maine Coon cat, we discovered that my husband, Oliver isn't allergic to this breed and now we also have a Maine Coon cat child. Besides being the most fun people you could happen to be with at a wedding, they also manage to find the time (in between being medical doctors) to be really awesome hosts. Graeme is also quite the baker and because they are incredibly kind hearted and supportive people, allowed me to invade their kitchen with a camera to steal a recipe for inspiration. We are very fortunate to have them as friends. This was Chocolate Brownie Thursday.
