Chocolate Pumpkin Fudge Brownies –Gluten Free and Vegan

So we had quite the dramatic weekend around here. All the Pacific Northwest heard about for the last 5 days was the “storm of the century” that was supposed to roll in and destroy everything in it’s path. In reality the storm moved course to the west by about 50 miles and we just had what would have been a bad (but normal) storm for late November- only it came in the middle of October ....more

Blackberry Honey Basil Whiskey Lemonade

I am finishing up a great trip to New York which has blessedly let me escape with my husband for almost a week. We have been eating and drinking too much.
