Cream Cheese Brownies


I baked these Cream Cheese Brownies quite a while back and somehow I could not write the post. My mind was like, blank. Kosong. I had nothing to say. I was so uninspired.


Which did not mean that these Cream Cheese Brownies were not good. Of course they were wonderful. You get to eat fudgy brownies and cheesecake at the same time.


Well, it looks like I still have nothing much to say  and I shall now share the recipe with you. So please excuse me for being brain dead hah..hah...

  13. I face writer's block endless times.. Sometimes I don't even know what I am writing cos I never read and check back what I wrote.. and I try to make it short and simple, I know I can be "long-winded" if the inspirasi is there but that seldom happens.. hahaha..
    Anyway, as the saying goes.. the pictures speak of themselves.. and I am still wishing I could have a piece of that above! :)
