This is another recipe from our family cookbook, contributed by my husband's grandmother. I needed to make a quick dessert to take to a family and didn't have any easy brownie mixes. I looked through the cookbook and found this easy recipe. I made a few additions to it and they turned out delicious!!!! Luckily there were only a few left, because I would have been tempted to eat them.


3/4 cup flour
1 cup sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup cocoa
1/2 cup butter
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup milk (my addition)
Hand full of semi sweet chocolate chips (my addition)
1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional, I myself did not add them)
1 small square of Almond Bark to decorate the top (my addition)

You need to combine all ingredients, except for the almond bark. Mix well and pour on a small baking pan. I think the one I used was a square 9x9x3. Bake at 350 degrees for 22 minutes.

Decorate the top by melting the almond bark in the microwave and then swirl it on top of the brownies using a piping bag or a ziplock bag (just cut a small tip on a corner). Enjoy!

Time for a GIVEAWAY!!

Back in October I won a giveaway to CSN Stores through one of my friends blog. It was awesome to go in their website and see the wide variety of items they carry. Their selection of products is so wide, because CSN Stores has over 200 online stores where you can find anything you need whether it be modern dining furniture, fitness equipment, or even cute cookware!

Well, just today I received the product I ordered...a George Foreman Indoor Grill and I'm really excited to use it for a new recipe today!

Anyway, I was very excited for the giveaway I won, and am now fortunate to do a giveaway of my own through them!

Chicken Parmesan

I know, not really the best picture for this meal, I was on a hurry.
Nevertheless, I promise you'll like this easy yummy dinner.


4 boneless chicken breast (halves)
1 bottle of Ragu sauce
Bread crumbs (I use Italian herb)
1 egg
Shredded Mozzarella cheese

Put a little bit of Ragu sauce on the bottom of a baking dish. Coat chicken breasts with egg, then cover with bread crumbs and place in baking dish. Pour remaining sauce over the top and bake for 20 minutes (or until done) at 375 degrees. Add cheese and bake for an additional 10 minutes. Serve with/over rice or pasta. Enjoy!
