Did someone say breakfast?! Breakfast is my fiancés favorite meal of the day so I try my best to fill his mornings with yummy food and plenty of coffee. While he absolutely adores cereal and milk, sometimes I surprise him by actually cooking. I am definitely not a morning person but making food for loved ones always makes me happy!

Two of my favorite things! Chicken and Black Beans! I eat this at least twice a week. It's great right outta the pan but put this mixture in a tortilla with some lettuce and sour cream and Oh My Goodness! I've actually eaten a whole pan of this by myself. (Shhh! Don't tell my family!) I usually make this in a large non-stick skillet but recently I got a cast-iron skillet and I liked it so much that I don't think ill ever make it in anything else.
This recipe has two parts, a fudgy brownie and a delicious frosting that goes along with it! This is a cast-iron skillet recipe but you could certainly make this in a 10 inch baking dish. The frosting recipe is also multi-purpose. Along with brownies it can also be used on cakes, cupcakes, ice cream, cinnamon rolls and fruit. I used it like a dipping sauce once at a dinner party and paired it with fresh fruit and sweet breads. It was a big hit!
