Olive Oil Brownies with Ganache

Now that my son is thirteen, he’s become “too cool” for Easter baskets and chocolate bunnies.  This is the one time of the year that I look forward to eating chocolate with wild abandon.  Since we didn’t have a chocolate bunny, I found myself craving chocolate.  Brownies was my next obvious choice.  I know that…

Irish Cream Cheesecake Brownies

So about a week ago I went to the store hoping to buy a pint of Baileys Irish cream.  The store was out of pint-sized bottles, so I bought a fifth, came home and made the cinnamon chop bread with an Irish cream glaze.  Now, what to do with all the leftover Irish cream?  Put it…

Caramel Brownies with Pretzel Crust

I feel like I need to have a t-shirt made saying “I survived the move!”  All 1,400 employees moved into our new building today.  It’s been very exciting and very busy.  I actually worked all weekend troubleshooting building issues with our core team to make sure everything would be as perfect as possible when everyone…

Olive Oil Brownies w/M&Ms and Peanut Butter Chips

I’m finally at the bottom of the bag of m&m’s. This last recipe featuring m&m’s was the result of a combination of using the rest of the candy and cleaning out my cupboard. I knew I wanted to make brownies with m&m’s, but I didn’t know that I had a box of brownie mix in my cupboard. Miles…

Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies

I have a friend who makes the best lamb ragout in the world. It’s also the only lamb ragout I’ve ever had, but I’ like to think that it world still be the best if I ever tried it somewhere else. So when he sends out a group text announcing that he’s made a batch,…

Brownie Caramel Ice Cream

  I have a friend that teases me because I keep the insert to my ice cream maker in the freezer at all times. I say it’s because you never know when you’ll be in the mood for ice cream and you want to be prepared! I’m glad that it’s always there because the other…

Chocolate Covered Brownie Peeps

  Last week during our Friday Social at work, we were joking about peeps.  Everyone thinks they’re cute, but no one likes to eat them.  We were trying to think of things we could do with them.  We all thought peep s’mores might be tasty.   Then they challenged me to come up with something for…

Peanut Butter Brownies

My mom asked me to send her these brownies. She’s been in the mood for peanut butter and chocolate ice cream lately (her favorite), but it’s been soooo cold in Michigan, the last thing she wants to do is eat something cold. So, she did the next best thing. She called me up and asked…
