Dark Chocolate Fudge Brownies

These little babies are a dream.  I am not much of a sweets person, but I could eat all of these, no shame.  They are super thick and fudgey, sweet but not overwhelmingly sweet.  Caution: do not consume until you have a glass of ice cold milk.  Consuming brownies without milk will result in delicious…

Smokey Chipotle Chili

This chili makes me happy.  It is spicy and smokey and absolutely perfect.  Highly recommend serving it with the best cornbread ever.  This makes a large pot so leftovers are a given.  I like to mix some of the leftover chili with noodles, Greek yogurt, and cheddar cheese for a lightened up chili mac.  It…

Grilled Salmon Burgers

New year, new me, am I right?  This burger tastes so good you won’t even know it’s healthy.  All you fish haters, take a chance on this, I promise it will not disappoint.  Mom’s, want your kids to get some omega-3s without them knowing?  Make them this, they’ll never know what hit them.  The patty…
