This Week In My Kitchen

Hello girlfriends! 
I am joining Heather, over at Beauty That Moves for This Week In My Kitchen blog hop! Stop by, it is a nice way to be inspired in your kitchen!

This week was:

Heather's Black Bean Brownies w/ Raspberry Sauce

dates soaked

chia seeds added

this speaks for itself

shaved Ghirardelli

loved this and no one knew it had black beans til I told them...a keeper for sure

Glazed Carrots with Pistachios

cooking *just til tender

roasting *carefully

buttering the black skillet 

blending with fresh thyme and brown sugar...nearly a dessert in itself

HERE are some other weeks in the kitchen!


  1. Black Bean Brownies are great...even without the raspberry sauce! Are you familiar with Ambitious Kitchen? It is a site I think you would really enjoy also. www.ambitiouskitchen.com Those carrots look so amazing!
