Best Brownie Recipes

Here’s what I’m sharing on Parade Magazine‘s food blog this week:  10 Best Brownie Recipes (everything you see here- even including the best gluten-free brownie recipe ever).  It’s a good link to save to your bookmarks tab for when you’re in the brownie-making mood (which might be very, very soon after you see what recipes I’m sharing!)

KA Mixer

I need your help.  I’m trying to decide between the PERSIMMON and GLOSSY CINNAMON KitchenAid Stand Mixer.  My kitchen has stainless steel appliances, and the only color in the kitchen is a moss green wall at the far end… away from the counter where the mixer will live.  The adjacent family room has a lot of greens and browns in it.  The adjacent dining room (a door separates kitchen from dining room) is green/burgundy/yellow.  And my office (which you can see from the kitchen) has an orange wall.  I’ve narrowed it down to these two colors.  Which one should I get?!

Culinary Covers Sept 10
Here are the delicious recipes that have been shared on my other blog (Culinary Covers) in recent weeks: Berry Cobbler (Mmm!), Two-Cheese Macaroni and Cheese (a delicious, low-fat version), Chocolate- Almond Cake (naturally gluten-free), and Soy- Glazed Flank Steak with Blistered Green Beans (great dinner idea!)  Be sure to subscribe to Culinary Covers too so you don’t miss any new recipes.


Running Guru

I’ve been toying with the idea of training for another race (I ran a half marathon a couple of years ago, and it was so good for my body!)  Running Guru is the website I’ve been looking at- they have quite a nice variety of training schedules for all levels.  Check it out if you’re a runner or want to be one!  I’m thinking about using their 10K training program- they have a half-marathon training schedule too.  And if you’re searching for races that are offered in your area, they share that info too.

Art of SLUSH

My friend Jennifer from the blog- Savory Simple has written a book:  The Art of Slush– Creative and delicious recipes for slushies milkshakes, smoothies and more!   It would be such a fun cookbook to add to a cookbook collection, wouldn’t it?  It is being exclusively sold through Zoku’s website and Williams-Sonoma. There is more information about the book as well as a sample recipe for Blood Orange Mojito Sparking Slush on Jennifer’s blog.

Sundance Catalog

Am I the very last person alive to discover the Sundance catalog?  I’ve been spending an inordinate amount of time poking through their website.  Here are four tops that I’ve put on my wish list for fall- all completely my style.  Do you like any of them?  Should I splurge and get one or two or four?


My sweet friend Stacy of the blog- Wicked Good Kitchen reviewed my cookbook on her blog a few days ago.  She took the time to write a rather extensive and thoughtful review, so it’s worth checking out if you’re thinking about buying The Recipe Girl Cookbook.  ALSO… she adapted the SoCal Mexican Layer Dip recipe from my book to make this Chorizo 7-Layer Mexican Dip.  Perfect recipe for football Sunday, don’t you think?

Home T Shirts

I am absolutely in love with these Home T-Shirts.  I want to get a Nevada one for myself (embracing my new home), but I also want to buy them for all of my friends who love their home state!  A portion of the profits are donated to Multiple Sclerosis research (nice!)

Fall Recipes
And finally, I don’t know if you’re ready yet… if your weather is cooler or if you’ve started to shift toward craving things like apples and pumpkin, but I’ve got a few recipes to get you started on fall (all breakfast-themed):  Pumpkin Pie Pancakes from (that forkful can make it’s way over yonder and feed me).  Then there are these Pumpkin-Beer Waffles from (might be fun for football Sunday, and they may go over well with the guys when you tell them they get to have beer for breakfast).  And I might as well share my Pumpkin Spice Latte recipe again (make it yourself instead of shelling out $5/per treat, and you’ll save a bunch of cash this fall).

That’s it for this week, my friends!

    Love the persimmon!! It would be a nice pop of color.

    I would vote persimmon 🙂 and thanks for the link to the home shirts. Super Cute!

    Both mixer colors are beautiful. I vote for the Glossy Cinnamon. I use reds in my living areas- this is also the areas I decorate the most for Christmas. I love being able to leave everyday things out and have them blend in with special decor.

    The persimmon. Yummy!!!!!!!!

    Leaning towards the persimmon, although both colors are beautiful. Persimmon is different and unexpected but it will still work with the other colors in your house. And I’ll be making some of those brownie recipes this fall!

    Pick the color YOU love because your kitchen, or even your home, may change! You will have this mixer for life, probably, but everything around it will probably change. I have had my Kitchenaid mixer for 20+ years…

    Those t-shirts are awesome! As for the mixer – I say Glossy Cinnamon!

    I’m a fan of both colors – but the “Glossy Cinnamon” is beautiful and the one I would choose

    I’m thinking I would want the persimmon for a little shot of color, but you seem to gravitate to the greens and browns, and I do love the sophistication of the brown…. go with your heart…. Susan

    I love the kitchenaid on the right, whichever that one is is so deep and rich in color I can’t take my eyes away from it!

  • Jackie Hammond wrote:

    I would have to go with the cinnamon color on the mixers.

    On the shirts I would have to say bottom left and top right. and the HOME T-shirts are both great. Thanks for sharing and I love all the recipes. They all sound just great. Will have to try some of them when I get the money. Makes me hungry even after just having eaten.

    I like the glossy cinnamon.

    Also, the pumpkin-beer waffles look delish! And for the shirts, I like the top right.

    I have the glossy cinammon….so that’s my vote 🙂 No matter what color you go with it sounds like it will work though.

  • shari wick wrote:

    either would look wonderful but i believe I would choose the persimmon for a pop of color…..
