Fudge Frosted Brownies #SundaySupper

As I work on upgrading my blog in the new year, I’m starting my recipe challenge over. This recipe for fudge frosted brownies is doing double duty this week. First, as a #SundaySupper event dessert to kick off National Sunday Supper month. More about that in a minute. Second, as the first recipe in the 2016 52 Week New Recipe Challenge.

I’ve tried a number of new recipes in the last few months and look forward to sharing them with you on my new, improved site. Recipes for main dishes, sides, desserts (we love our desserts!), appetizers. In addition to improving this site, I hope to ramp up my social media presence. Look for ways to follow me in future postings.

How often does your family gather around the table for a family meal? My family is fortunate to do it every. single. night. because I make it a priority. Both my husband and I grew up with regular family dinners and we believe it’s more important than over scheduling our kids with activities. We know what’s going on at school, with grades, in their lives. We talk about current events, educate them about a variety of topics, plan vacations, talk about our ancestors and so much more. That’s not to say our kids aren’t involved, just not every night or late nights. It’s not that difficult to get around the table at least one night a week. January is National Sunday Supper Month. If you’re not familiar with the Sunday Supper Movement, you should be. You can find out more about this initiative at the end of this post through the link and sign a pledge to get your family around the table. (More about family around the table in future posts!)

The first recipe of 2016 for the 52 Week New Recipe Challenge is for dessert, hoping to kick off a sweet year. Fudge frosted brownies is a new recipe to my family adapted from Taste of Home, where I am a Volunteer Field Editor. I was looking for a recipe to make to share with a friend who was going through a rough time. After all, dessert often makes things better. These brownies fit the bill for a sweet ending to any meal.

So, as good things are happening with my blog, I wish you all a year full of good food, family, friends, health and happiness. Happy 2016!
