Bravetart’s Brownies

I know, I always talk about not needing another brownie recipe, but then I decided to try making these. I actually got the recipe initially via a keto post and modified it to be made with regular ingredients. You see, I’ve had bad luck making some of the recent recipes from Stella and so wasn’t sure about her book. Then I saw a picture of these brownies and wanted to try them myself. Sure enough, they are fudgy, but not gooey. They have a crisp top but are chewy inside.

Yes, these are my new favorite brownies, I think. I might need to make them monthly just to be sure.

Coffee Blondies

These definitely give you a coffee flavor, but not only that, they were great blondies. I made these for my dad without the coffee and used extra vanilla instead. He said they were some of the best blondies he has had, so clearly the coffee part isn’t the only good part of the recipe.

Salted Brown Butter Rice Krispies Treats

Someone reminded me of this recipe and it was perfect for a small get together we hosted. I actually made it twice because the first time my marshmallows were too old. It really did matter because I made the recipe the same way and the first time it became hard as a rock and was inedible. The second time it was perfect. So, make sure your marshmallows are still soft and fluffy (even though you’re melting them, the texture beforehand matters).

Mint Ice Cream with Chocolate Pieces (Mint Chocolate Chip) with Bonus Ice Cream Sandwich Idea

Is it okay for me to share another half-recipe with you? And an ice cream one when it is cool weather season? I hope so, because that is what you are getting today.

Heart Cookies and Brownies

These were some treats we made for the week surrounding Valentine’s Day. Most were shared with friends, and a few were saved for us to enjoy. I wasn’t really pleased with either cookie recipe, so I won’t be sharing them but the brownie recipe was one I’ve already shared here and enjoy.

Mixed Bag Mondays (part 15): Dark Beer Recipes

You may know that I don’t often drink alcohol…and by not often, it’s pretty much never. I was going to have some of the champagne at our wedding during the toast…but when it was time to take a sip, there was a fly in my glass! Eek! So, yeah, not even then. But, this doesn’t mean that I don’t like to use it. We always have alcohol around, whether it is for making ice cream or vanilla extract, for stews, or even desserts,  I enjoy using it. I came across two recipes that both used dark beer, and they were perfect to make in the same day to make the most of a large bottle of beer. (One difficulty I run into is buying a single beer at a store. It’s hard to find ones that aren’t ginormous.)

Sebastian’s Remarkably Wonderful Brownies

Somehow, Dorie was correct. These brownies are both a bit fudgey and a bit cakey. Not one or the other fully, and yet they are delicious. They are not “traditional” tasting brownies, but they are good when you want brownies that are a little different. They aren’t more work than some other brownies, but they do require a mixer.
