Mint Chocolate Chip Brownies

Hope you had a wonderful day!

Happy Valentine’s Day! I managed to find my way back to the computer to share this little simple thing I did during the holidays. I’m not going to write it up recipe style as it’s just too damn simple. I had managed to freeze some of these brownies hence today’s picture and tonight’s after dinner enjoyment, mint brownies, mint chocolate chip ice cream and last but not least, the Champagne! You noticed that I didn’t expand on the after dinner part too awfully much, ha ha!! The fire place is also ready to go and as we toast to our love, our latest addition in our battery operated toys, Valentine Bears to serenade us with “I Say A Little Prayer For You”! What more could you ask for other that the perfect mate to share it all with!!!!! This year will mark our 28th  year of being together for Valentine’s Day and we both wondered how we put up with each other for so long! Just a whole lotta love and prayers…………….It’s just that simple!


To go back to these wonderful brownies, all I did was add one cup of mint chips that you can find during the holidays and online now and add them to one box of brownie mix. You can use your favorite brownie mix and add the mint chips to it or if you can’t find the chips, some mint flavored chocolate bars broken into small pieces. These were a big hit to all who enjoyed them with us. Like I said, simplicity at work!!!! Well I’m off to start our Valentine din-din and as I’m experimenting tonight, it could be great or then again, a disaster! Whichever happens, I’ll let you know and if the worst happens, maybe you can straighten me out ( God knows I need all the help I can get) or give me some subtle hints as to how to fix the problem I created………….Happy Valentine’s Day again and enjoy!

Fudgy Beet Brownies

With a tight schedule this week, I’m doing a little cheating today by sharing a recipe that was in our local newspaper. Unfortunately, there is no author on this recipe and not even the author of the recipe column, for sure a small town paper! The paper is the Swuannee Valley Times that was printed on July 2, 2014. I found the recipe intriguing to say the least as it calls for beets in the mixture for the brownies and I’m not sure if I have ever heard of that before but if you have please leave a comment, I would appreciate hearing from you! Another hint here was to use pickled beet juice to make pink lemonade, interesting!
I had planned on doing this post yesterday, however circumstances got us home too late. I was also not in the mood to do much of anything as we had to wait for 4-1/2 hours to have new tires put on our car, phew! Our VW takes a special tire key and it took the mechanic 2 hours just to find it! Then I still had some shopping to do and by the time we pulled into the driveway, all I wanted was a cold brew and to chill out! But at least now we can feel more confident in taking the hour long trip to see great-grandson whom we have not seen since his birth. Husband has also been catching up on some outside chores since the rains have slowed down and this weekend we have company coming, phew again! So much to do and so little time…………
