2 Ingredient Pumpkin Brownies

These yummy, super dense brownies consist of only two ingredients and they are healthy. Yep, you heard my right, 2 Ingredient Pumpkin Brownies.

Crispy Baked Asian Wings

When I served these Crispy Baked Asian Wings for dinner recently, Joel asked me if I fried them….that’s how crispy they are after being baked in the oven! The recipe for these wings is from Alton Brown’s show Good Eats. I am not really into science so I don’t watch it too often but I happened to
