Mix together all ingredients from garlic to red pepper flakes in a large bowl. Season with S/P. Add the beans and toss gently to coat. Taste and adjust seasoning as needed. Serve atop lettuce or a tossed salad, or eat on its own.
Two of my favorite things in one decadent dessert, alright alright alright. These are BIG brownies, so they are meant to be cut into small squares, but if you want to eat the whole pan I won’t judge you.
The peanut butter top is made with cream cheese (I used reduced fat – in case you’re also inclined) so it’s actually not overwhelmingly sweet, but a mild creamy peanut flavor that pairs perfectly with chocolate. Enjoy!
2 oz. semi-sweet chocolate (I used ½ of a 4 oz. Ghirardelli baking bar)
1 tbsp. butter
2 tbsp. heavy whipping cream
Bake the brownies according to the box instructions in an 8x8 pan. Let cool completely.
In a large bowl, beat together the cream cheese and peanut butter until combined. Sift the confectioners' sugar over the cream cheese mixture and beat until smooth. Using a spatula, spread the mixture over the brownies and smooth evenly.
In a heat-proof bowl set over a small saucepan of simmering water, melt the chocolate and butter. Add the whipping cream and stir until smooth and glossy. Remove from heat and let cool. Drizzle the cooled melted chocolate over the peanut butter layer. Place in the refrigerator and let chill until firm. Cut into bars and serve.
I’ve been craving miso soup like crazy, but really wanted something that would provide a full meal. So why not make miso soup loaded with goodies to make a complete meal? Done and delicious. This makes a large pot with 4-6 bowl-sized servings. Great for lunch or dinner, and perfect for packing for work lunches. […]
Crepes are one of those things I just assumed must be difficult to make, so even though I LOVE them, I always ordered them out. But thanks to America’s Test Kitchen great recipe, I finally made them at home and was shocked at just how easy they were to make. Easier (and faster) than regular […]
Blueberries are in season, so why not include them in fabulous banana bread? This is a Cooking Light recipe that was quite delicious. The recipe included a glaze, and I include instructions for one below, but next time I will skip it. The bread is definitely sweet enough without a glaze. If you decide to […]
Frittatas – super easy egg dishes that are a great way to use up that fresh produce sitting in your crisper! Kind of like an omelet, or a crust-less quiche, I love frittatas with a crisp, green salad on the side. In the one pictured, I used broccoli and tomato, but you can really use […]
A simple comfort-food quality dish that features one of my favorite veggies – broccolini! There’s nothing too complicated or fancy about this, just simple, homemade goodness in the form of a casserole. This is a Martha Stewart recipe that I lightened up substantially with some recipe tweaks, so you can feel good about every bite. […]
I am eating one of these as we speak … or in between typing to be more exact and they are freakin’ delicious! I’ve always loved oatmeal cookies and these take it to another level with intense, sweet spice flavor and soft, chewy texture. I’ve been eating these for breakfast, snacks, and dessert – they […]
Watermelon has been my go-to snack lately, so why not put it in my green juice? Now, mixing green and pink juices together does not result in the most beautiful of colors, but the taste is delicious. This juice is sweet and super refreshing – perfect for summer! Watermelon Green Juice Print Author: Adapted, […]
