Hey, pal! *waving*

We’re back in the weekday-mix, again.

How is it Monday, already?!

I know you agree that we need a day between Sunday and Monday. Like a pre-Monday day. How cool would that be? We can use that day to prep for Monday. Sundays should be about naps and chocolate, only. God said so. Even HE napped on the 7th day.


I got caught up in the day to day stress-thingamajigs lately. It’s mostly due to babies growing up and clueless Mommy growing up with them. This stuff ain’t easy, you know? They really should come up with a step-by-step handbook for this child-rearing stuff. Make it effortless and everything.

At least we can all come here at the end of the day and discuss food.

Every time I decide to make brownies, I try really hard to change my mind. All of this chocolate can’t be good. Can it?

So, instead, umm… I made you brownies with zucchini. Just so we could have the best of both worlds. Is that cool??
I also found a way to use up the jar of cashew butter that’s been chillin’ in the pantry for over a year.

In fact, there are so many things going on in these moist, fudgy, chocolaty treats from the heavens. I was beside myself when I first tried them. SO GOOD!

To be completely honest, I sorta feel like I trashed up what could have been a healthy bite… but, to be honest again, I just couldn’t help it.

In reality, I want nothing more than to dive into this pile of squares, face first. These brownies are/were out of this world.
I stood there, right above the kitchen counter and stuffed my face, shamelessly. I then placed the remains in a container and gave them to my husband to take to work.

They were supposed to be for the kids. #momfail again.

    Just a quick question, if I were to replace cashew butter for something else, what would you recommend? Thank you

      Hi Aki!

      What do you think of almond butter? Or even peanut butter? I’ve tried them with both of those and they were really good.

    I made these for a family party specifically for my cousin’s dairy and gluten free daughter. I had to fend off my family from eating them before the party started, they smelled so good. When she arrived she was thrilled to see them and later ate 4 (she’s 6). More than that the rest of the kids (and their parents) loved them, too. Thanks so much!

    Amazing. I am a Paleo girl and this is just up my alley. Question, what is the size of the cashew butter container?

    • Katerina Petrovska August 27, 2014 at 10:16 PM - Reply
