It’s that time of year again. A time to show the ones you love and care about how much they mean to  you. I always felt a homemade gift means so much more significant than a store bought item.

If you like brownies and chocolate chip cookies but can’t decide on which you feel like baking and eating. You won’t have to choose. This is the best of both of the two. Enjoy every decadent bite!


If you had to choose between a brownie or chocolate chip cookie, which one would it be? In my world, that’s a tough one. I love them both. If I asked my family, the hubby would say chocolate chip cookies while my kids would defiantly pick a brownie. I decided to experiment with baking them together. I found a bunch of good recipes that were all called a brookie. How perfect! SO, here is my version of a brookie. I made it with regular, simple ingredients that’s probably already in your panty. And…no dairy or eggs. I ran out of eggs when experimenting. So then decided to not use dairy either. We all loved this recipe. Give it a try, it’s an easy one and really decadent tasting.

Cauliflower “Fried Rice”

Cauliflower “Fried Rice” –  This is now a favorite recipe in my house. Tastes just like fried rice you are used to only healthier using cauliflower. Try it soon!


Recently I was introduced to all the many delicious and healthy ways to enjoy cauliflower. A friend told me about a recipe she made from a frozen bag of cauliflower that comes already riced. I knew it was something I needed to learn more about and to try some new recipes using this everyday vegetable.


I grew up eating cauliflower. That and broccoli. Up until an adult these two veggies were not a favorite at all. But, the usual ways for me to prepare these two were to stir fry, boil, steam or roast in the oven which by the way is delicious on it’s own. Getting  back to “riced” cauliflower. People are making mashed potatoes, cream sauces. A whole new range of recipes from this simple everyday veggie. The recipe here is now a favorite. Oh my, I make this once a week or more.  Once in a while I add cooked brown or white rice to the dish. No one knows which is the real rice. Sometimes my family likes this as the main course so, adding chicken, shrimp or any meat makes it a perfect balanced dinner. Sometimes we add tofu to keep the dish vegan.  This basic recipe is so simple and very versatile. Add in more things that you like or enjoy just as it’s shared here.
