“Decadent red wine brownies are happening over here. I gifted these bougie treats to friends as a way to encourage some good old self-care. They were such a huge hit that I’m making them again on New Year’s Eve. In the brownies is @creamfamilywines delicious Cherrycream Pinot Noir. This wine is so wonderful. It’s balanced, mellow, fruity but also grapey. I also like that the bottle is a screw top. It made serving on the fly easy. I got this wine as a gift but I’m so glad I tried it. I get lost in the wine store so having an option I know I like is great. I ended up buying several bottles to give as hostess gifts.” —@njfoodventure

  • Switch to the paddle attachment and combine the dry ingredient allowing some of the dry ingredients to not mix all the way through.
