The Osland's Chocolate Chip Brownies



It is always a special treat to share the holidays with friends and loved ones! For our Pre-Thanksgiving Feast this year we had the great pleasure of having the Osland/Hillen clan join us and what a treat it was! We laughed, told stories, laughed some more, ate, watched football and had a great time spending the day together. Jennifer and Reed brought their now famous Kale Salad while Kaylee offered to bring the dessert and how sinfully delicious it was!!!! After recovered slightly from our food coma induced by the turkey, dressing, squash, stuffing, potatoes and gravy, we decided it was time for dessert....sweet Jesus it was amazing!!!! Here is Jennifer and Kaylee's mother's homemade brownies with homemade icing made for us by the lovely Kaylee Osland!!!
