Black Bean Brownies

You have to bake it to believe it. I only got James to eat them without any preconceived notions by telling him beforehand that there’s a secret ingredient which I would not divulge until after he ate one. His guesses for this secret ingredient included: arugula, leeks and brussles sprouts. The honest truth about these…

Cocoa Brownies

Mmmm, brownies. These are so good. Sure they have may needed to stay in the oven for an extra five minutes, but they are delicious when gooey and warm. Plus, the next day (after being stored at room temperature in a ziploc bag) they were totally fine and really fudgy. The impetus for these brownies…

Easy, Adaptable Blondies

These blondies are exactly what the title says they are: easy to make and adaptable. I added 1/2 cup toasted walnuts and 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips. Next time they might be just plain or topped with M&Ms or mixed with dried cranberries. Seriously, these really are infinitely versatile. They also happen to be one…

Blueberry Pecan Brownies

This is an experiment gone awesome. Not gone wrong, I repeat, gone awesome. Grammar? At the moment, who cares. The point here is that experimentation doesn’t always lead to disaster. Instead it can produce something rich, fudgy and delightfully fruity. Ingredients Recipe adapted from Simply Recipes brownie 10 T. unsalted butter 1 1/4 cups sugar…

Chocolate Coconut Blondies

HAPPY GRADUATION DAVID!!!! On that note…. Imagine a blondie infused with bittersweet dark chocolate and coconut. You probably could have guessed that from the title, but the title is so boring compared to the rich goodness that this recipe offers. Next time I would either double the batter or cut down on the chocolate since…

Baked Goodness Bar

I don’t even know how or where to begin to describe this intensely rich dessert. It has dark chocolate, butterscotch, white chocolate, and more, that results in something so dense we were only able to eat one each (with some ice cream) for the whole week. That said, we may have had too much in…

St. Patrick’s Day Minty Fudge Brownies

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I’m not Irish, but you can kiss me if you want to. I’ve posted on these brownies before so yes, this is a repost with only minor updates. However, they’re fudgy, they’re good and they have a green frosting so they’re part of the celebration! Ingredients for the brownie: 1 cup…

A Coming Home Feast

We’re back!!! And I don’t just mean the blog. James and I have been on the go in Denver, St. Paul and D.C. these past two weeks covering the Democratic and Republican National Conventions. I went to Denver and returned to D.C. to work the night shifts during the RNC. With James out of town…
