Bourbon Brownies with Sea Salt

Bourbon Brownies with Sea Salt

Bourbon is an American whiskey distilled from corn mash, malt, and rye and aged in oak barrels, which give it a distinctive flavor.

Lemon and Dark Chocolate Brownies

Lemon and Dark Chocolate Brownies

Lemon and dark chocolate may not always sound like a match made in heaven, but the two flavors are a surprisingly good combination. The bright and tart flavor of the lemon really highlights the richness of chocolate by contrasting with it. You get a lot of chocolate flavor, and a much more refreshing finish from the lemon. Of course, both lemon and dark chocolate are ... Read More »

Fudgy Gluten Free Brownies with Walnuts

Fudgy Gluten Free Brownies, up close

Few things are as irresistible as a fudgy chocolate brownie. Most brownies contain flour to help give them structure and a nice, chewy texture, but I decided to give one of my favorite brownie recipes a makeover and create a gluten-free variation that is completely flour-free. Brownies are actually a good candidate for a gluten-free makeover because many recipes don’t call for a large amount ... Read More »
