It is pumpkin season and we love it! It is one of our favourite harvests of the season. We usually enjoy it by making a savoury side dish, making soup with it, and baking whoopie pies and buns with it. This year my children got busy scooping out the seeds that we turned into a delicious snack to enjoy when watching Netflix.

I love baking! The love for baking and cooking is embedded in me probably because of helping out as a young child in the kitchen when my grandma, aunts, cousins and mom get busy making a variety of dishes. We used to get together and make lots of goodies to give family, friends and neighbours during special occasions and festivals. I love continuing this tradition with my family and get everyone in the mood to bake and share.

Brownie kit from Me Myself and Us includes directions, activity ideas, a baking pan, brownie mix, frosting, 3 primary colours of gel, colour wheel and brush. It is a very simple to use kit. This is a lovely idea to spend time with children.
I like that they included the primary colours, so we can teach our children the basic concept of colour. And learning to use primary colours to make secondary colours. Children from any age can help create beautiful art work on the cake as it is edible.
After painting the delicious treats and having fun; I did remove the top part of the icing and colour before giving the kids to eat :) This is just because I am not big on too much artificial colouring and unnecessary sweets. It would be nice if the colours were derived from natural products like vegetables or the like. The colours did leave some stain on the fingers.
We were so eager to make these brownies and made it right after school :) All of us loved the brownie so much that it disappeared within a few minutes before I even had a chance to save some for after dinner :)
