Allergy-Friendly Brownie Cookies

It’s the best of both worlds! The combination of two of our favorite sweets for one delicious dessert. Who would of thought to mix brownies and cookies together to form a brownie cookie or brookie? These brownie cookies are gluten-free, vegan/plant based, nut-free, soy-free, and refined sugar-free. They are an allergy-friendly treat that everyone can enjoy.
The soft and chocolatey texture of the brownie fits on top of the crunchy and chocolate chip texture of the cookie. Since it’s a brownie layer over a cookie layer, you get a piece of brownie with some cookie in each bite. It’s a win, …

Brownies for breakfast? Sounds good to me! How could you pass down a sweet for breakfast?

Butterscotch Brownies

The alluring thing about brownies is their simplicity and decadence.  Classy enough for a dinner party and casual enough for a gift, brownies are one of the more versatile desserts.  While cookies come in different shapes and sizes, brownies can be spicy or bitter, pudgy or crispy, gooey or soft.  It’s all a matter of taste and opinion.  Brownies are so easy to make, that experimenting with the recipe should be encouraged in every cookbook and every box of mix.
Starting with a basic recipe from Baking: From My Home to Yours, I realized I had leftover butterscotch bits, and thought, …

Brownie Baking with a Little Help From Chile

IMG_1579IMG_1580IMG_1581IMG_1582IMG_1583IMG_1584
It all started with a tweet chat and somehow ended with me baking double fudge brownies with extra virgin Chilean olive oil in my kitchen. But I will get to the baking later.
During one of my weekly tweet chats (#HGEATS) moderated by @TheHungryGoddess, there was a special sponsor this time around. The people of Chile Olive Oil were present and willing to state their case on why Chilean olive oil is better than, say, the household imported one from the Mediterranean country of Italy.  I admit I was a bit skeptical and I had a very limited knowledge in olive …

Tales of a Chocoholic

          Chocolate has been, and as far as I can see always will be, my favorite thing. You may think this is pretty common, people always say they love chocolate and I don’t doubt them, I just know they don’t have the same relationship with chocolate that I do. Chocolate and I go way back to childhood. My first ever word was “chocolat” (That is how you say it in French by the way, and yes my first word was in French and it is probably the only major influence French Canada has ever had on …

 

Outrageous Brownies

No other word describes these brownies better than the name they were given – outrageous brownies and every time I have made them for someone the first comment I get is how outrageous they are and when can I make them again for them!  What better compliment can you ask for!
I can’t take credit for creating the brownies that honor goes to Ina Garten!  I owe Ina Garten my sincere thanks and gratitude for letting me make the best possible brownies.
