Black Bean Chocolate Brownies

Black Bean Chocolate Brownies

This would have to be the healthiest chocolate brownie recipe I have ever seen. The list of ingredients is a far cry from the original brownie recipes, such as those served at Palmer House Chicago since 1893 or those in Fannie Farmer’s 1896 Boston Cooking-School Cook Book.  […]

Yummy berry muffins the whole family will love. With a sprinkle of cinnamon sugar, they they have irresistible crunchy sweet tops.  My pre-school niece and nephew who are not vegetarian nor vegan (and probably do not know what that even means) love for me to […]
