Girl Scout Brownies and Blondies

I’m back, kiddos, working again with Pillsbury to enlighten you to their new products based on…Girl Scout Cookies. Mmm. Yes, Girl Scout Cookies. We all have our favorites, I know.  My dad loves the peanut butter cookies.  I love the Samoas (Caramel Delites).  Almost everyone loves Thin Mints.  So when I learned that Pillsbury had […]

Peanut Butter and Salted Caramel Brownies

Sometimes things go together that maybe you hadn’t thought of going together. Like that one couple you know, who are both wonderful and charming on their own, but you never really saw being a THING. Perhaps she was just a little too smart, or he just a little too handsome. But then they met. And […]

S’mores Brownies…and a Giveaway

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…it’s football season.  That means tailgating. Now, I don’t know about you, but I swear, if you leave a tailgate menu up to a group of men, you’ll have 47 pounds of meat, and it if you’re lucky? Chips. Maybe.  No fruit, no pasta salad, no mac […]

Sugar Free Low Carb and Yet Really Good Cream Cheese Brownies

This is quite possible the fist time you’ve seen me use the words Sugar and Free in the same sentence. And Low Carb? Sugar Free Low Carb and Yet Really Good Cream Cheese Brownies. Surely, I jest. Oh, but I am afraid not. You see, I am a gym rat now, I go everyday, sometimes […]
