Nora and I have a friend named Chris (see photo from the trip Nora and I took in January to visit him in Washington, D.C.).
Chris’ birthday is coming up, and I am on the hunt for a shippable baked good for his birthday care package! In my search, I stumbled upon the thought of blondies, and now I can’t get beyond it.
