If you have brownie lovers in your household and they can eat regular traditional brownies, I have found a recipe you may want to check out and try~  I found this recipe in my email box and thought I would share it. Its a recipe for homemade brownie mix. A mix you can have on hand for whenever you might need it in a pinch.

You can find the recipe here from the blog Creative Homemaking.

AND if you are not able to eat the traditional version, here is a recipe I use very often and we all love. It is from the blog Satisfying Eats. I use many of her recipes and have both of her books and find them really helpful.

Recipe Share ~ Gorilla Bread

I just came across this recipe from the blog "Joy Filled Eats" by Taryn and it looks delicious! 

Planning on making this over the weekend when we need a sticky gooey sweet dessert. 
It looks amazing and I used to love making Paula Deen's Monkey Bread recipe for the boys but just can't bring myself to making it now for them since we have gone gluten free.

Pizza Bites - Great for Football Sundays!

Here is a recipe I tried last year that I am adding into my "to keep" recipe books. Its great! And I thought possibly you could add other variations to this as well for whatever taste you might be in the mood for~ crab, ham, bacon etc., ~
note: I liked ours best when I added 1/2 cup shredded cheddar to this, found it was even better.

Here is the link for the Easy Pizza Bites, enjoy!

I had a bunch of fresh cauliflower and wanted to do something different with it so I roasted it and was it amazing.

Here is the recipe to try out for yourself;

Roasted Cauliflower 

cut and clean one large head of cauliflower

add to a big bowl and toss with organic olive oil, kosher salt, parsley, rice vinegar, minced garlic and black ground pepper- add ingredients and taste as you go to see how much or how little you prefer to your own taste.

add to large jelly roll pan and roast till the tops begin to brown.


Russian Dressing ~

A real favorite in our house when we have burgers on the grill~ tastes like the "Big Mac" sauce you get at McDonalds without all the junk in it.

This is another recipe from the book "Comforting Eats" by Melissa Monroe McGhee. 

Russian Dressing

makes 3/4 cup

1/2 cup homemade mayonnaise or store bought mayo

1tsp garlic powder

2tsp. fresh lemon juice

1 sm. kosher dill pickle, finely chopped
