Chocolate Mocha Mug Brownie

Today’s post is a bit out of the ordinary. The Secret Recipe Club is paying tribute to Daniel from The Haggis and the Herring.

Though I only knew Daniel from The Secret Recipe Club I noticed he was always quick to help when someone had a question or would offer encouragement when a problem was encountered. Our little online family was better because of him and he will be missed.

To his family and friends I want to express my sincerest condolences and let you know that you are in my thoughts.
