Absolute BEST Brownies

 These chewy, fudgey and decadent brownies are sure to cure even the toughest sweet tooth!

 My kids absolutely LOVE brownies! When deciding which dessert to bring when going to someone's house for dinner, brownies are the most requested. So when I saw this recipe over at Thyme for Cooking Blog, I quickly decided that these would be dessert for dinner with hub's mom and sister.

The title of this recipe, does not lie. These brownies are phenomenal! They are chewy and fudgey; two things I love best about brownies. I really love the earthy flavour and crunch the nuts add to them. The ganache on top makes these brownies absolutely decadent. Perfect with a big glass of cold milk, these brownies are sure to cure even the biggest of sweet tooth!

Absolute BEST Brownies
adapted from Thyme for Cooking Blog

6 Tbs butter
8 oz dark chocolate, chopped
3/4 C sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs, at room temperature
1/4 C flour
1 C assorted nuts (I used a combination of walnuts, peanuts, cashews and pistachios)
1/2 C toffee bits, separated

4 oz dark chocolate
1/2 C heavy cream

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line an 8 inch square baking dish with parchment paper. 

In a sauce pot, melt the butter. Turn heat to low and add in 8 oz chocolate, stirring until melted. Remove from heat and the sugar and vanilla; stir well. Add in the eggs, one at a time, beating well between each addition. Add the flour and beat vigorously for 1-2 minutes; until batter is shiny and smooth. Fold in the nuts and pour into prepared baking dish and sprinkle with 1/4 C toffee bits; lightly pressing them into the batter.

Bake for 30 minutes; until almost set. (DO NOT OVER-BAKE)

Cool brownies completely in pan. Place remaining 4oz chocolate, in a mixing bowl. Heat heavy cream in a saucepan, until bubbles form around the edges. Pour hot cream over chocolate and let sit 2 minutes. Stir until smooth.

Pour ganache over the cooled brownies and smooth with an offset spatula. Sprinkle with remaining toffee bits. Let glaze set, before cutting and serving.

I originally saw this recipe on Pinterest (via Six Sister's Stuff) and it had my tummy rumbling so hard, that I knew I had to make it. I had chicken in the freezer, so decided to make this chicken on a day where I would be at school all day. Nothing like walking into the most amazing smell, when you get home from a busy day of work! 
I love that this recipe is so simple, yet it is out of this world delicious. Sweet and savory combine, to coat this tender chicken. It literally fell apart as I tried to remove it from the crock pot. Once tossed with the thickened glaze, I served it with cooked rice/fried rice and some fresh snap peas. It was an amazingly fantastic crock pot meal, that I will be making again and again.

Bacon-Mozzarella Accordion Garlic Bread

A fresh baguette is stuffed with bacon, cheese and garlic butter, for an addictive appetizer.

When we used to go out to eat, if it is on the menu, we would order a bruschetta type accordion bread. I thought I could make an awesome garlic bread, using the same concept, but adding ingredients that we totally love. We often like to top leftover garlic bread with mozzarella cheese, to make it seem new again, so I wanted to incorporate that between the garlicky slices or baguette. And we all know how AWESOME bacon is right??

This is a super simple, yet deliciously impressive appetizer. I'm sure your guests would all Oooh and Ahhh over the ooey gooey bread with bacon. They would be totally CRAZY if they didn't!! The kids really loved this too. The inside was soft and garlicky, full of cheese, bacon and nice fresh green onion. The outside was crispy and buttery.

8 Ways to Have a Fun and Delicious Halloween at Home

Wondering how to spend Halloween this year, due to the pandemic? Well I have 8 fun and delicious ways to make an at home Halloween, tons of fun!

2020 has been turned upside down. My kids have not seen friends, or the inside of a school since March. While we do have our social bubble, this bubble consists of family and a few select friends. Being someone who could be vulnerable during these crazy times, I have been trying to make every day life as normal as possible. With Halloween fast approaching, I have been thinking of how to make sure my children have a super fun day, but not put our bubble at risk. It would be much easier if my health was 100%, but we will make the best of our Halloween at home.
