I unabashedly stole the base of this recipe from my friend Susan’s Nutella Booze Balls. But since I changed or omitted every ingredient other than the butter I think it calls for a new recipe.

Do you see that? That’s a brownie. Yes, it’s gluten free, but if I didn’t tell you and you ate one you would never know. Doubt if you will, but make them and you’ll be a believer.

It was my birthday last week and this is the exchange I had with my 3 year old son on the morning of my birthday: Andy: Happy birthday mommy, I love you. Me: Thank you, Andy. I love you too. Andy: I want some of your cake. Me: What cake? It’s 9am, there’s no cake. […]

Ok, well, not […]

I had wanted to call these Faux-reos but didn’t because they if I billed them as homemade Oreos I was afraid you all would take me at my word and they aren’t really the same. These cookies are less cloyingly sweet and have a darker richer chocolate taste. But the name’s darn clever, isn’t it?

I’m pleased to report that I’ve been doing very well on my Super Pledge to stop eating between meals. The first couple weeks I wasn’t able to cobble together more than a couple of days (non-concurrently I might add) each week where I didn’t eat between meals. But, as I predicted, after a month of […]
