Walnut & Cheese Brownie


June is the month that all will be celebrating Father’s Day.   
I made Brownie for my hubby to thank him for making a huge 
difference in our 2 boys’ lives….  now, and every day of their future.

Cookbook Countdown is cooking event organised by Joyce from Kitchen Flavours and Emily from Emily’s Cooking (Makan2) Foray, to help cookbook collectors take some of their cookbooks down from their shelves, dust them off and start cooking from them.
Thanks Joyce and Emily for organising this meaningful event.  I don’t have many cookbooks and most of it were gift from friends and colleagues.   It’s time for me to take out those few collections of mine and start using them. 

 This month I choose The Secret of Cookies.  It was a gift from my 2 boys.  It has 200 recipes.  I don’t think I will make them all.  I will make as much as I can in June as my 2 boys love cookies.
