Here’s my take on Pinterest recipes. Half the time they work, half the time they don’t. These brownies stood out to me on Pinterest because they are called, “Nutella Brownies.” And who doesn’t love a recipe with Nutella involved?!? I followed the recipe exactly except for replacing the flour with Cup4Cup gluten free flour. We had just finished dinner, and I place them in the oven for about 35 minutes. After letting them cool for about 25 minutes, we enjoyed the brownies with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream. They were perfectly warm, chocolate, and lots of ooey gooey happiness. You can find this wonderful recipe here, and while you’re at it, check out my recipe board on Pinterest.
I thought I would give an update on our garden. All of the plants are certainly growing, but I’m not getting very many veggies from them yet. We get two or three cherry tomatoes everyday, but we eat those before we get back to the house. The cilantro came and went quickly. In fact, the plant actually went to seed within a few weeks. Our other herbs (basil, oregano, and sage) are still coming in strong. I think something is eating the squash, eggplant, and pepper blooms. I’ll see a bloom on them one day, and the next day it is gone. I’m not sure what to do about that. I think it may be my bunny rabbit friends. Next year, my garden needs a redo. It definitely needs fresh soil and maybe even a small fence to keep the bunnies out. I have some pinterest research to do!
