Gluten-free dark chocolate brownies

Ok, any time you want to impress your non-healthy-eating-minded friends, this is the dessert to do the trick. Honestly, it was my husband who found this recipe and made it the first time. When he told me they were gluten free and vegan (he used egg replacer) I didn’t believe. These are good. They’re that good.

This dish feels like you’re making a good pot of stew, we’re just seasoning it a bit differently. If you don’t like spicy food, adjust the spices accordingly.

Today I attended a business luncheon at a fancy hotel in town. The meal started off great with a huge wedge of lettuce with tomatoes and peppers. They were considerate enough to keep the blue cheese crumbles and the dressing on the side. Even hotels can learn. When the main dish came I was not […]

I just returned from a whirlwind trip to Atlanta to have my Endodontic brother-in-law give me a root canal. He did a fantastic job – definitely worth going across the country for.
