Dark Chocolate Brownies. Are you a dark chocolate person or a milk chocolate person?

Dark Chocolate Brownies

I have to say, I’m more in the light/milk chocolate camp myself. Always have been. Oh, I love a rich, dark chocolate bite or two…but I have to immediately wash it down with milk. Whole milk, preferably, that has been chilled to precisely 33.9 degrees. But that’s another story for another time. My dad, on the other hand, has always been a dark chocolate addict. Avocado Cilantro Lime Rice. Share on Pinterest Are you tired of the same old Mexican rice?

Avocado Cilantro Lime Rice

I know I’m getting a little bored of mine because I make it with nearly every Mexican meal, so I decided to switch things up a bit.

Smashed Avocado, Black Bean + Roasted Tomato Toasts

I spent the majority of mine recuperating from a nasty cold that entered my life late last week. By Friday, it had quite the grip on my energy levels, and I ended up spending the entire day snuggled up in bed. When I finally woke up, Jack had apparently become quite concerned and had his little cat face just inches from mine with a paw nestled against my cheek. Pets always seem to know when we’re in need of some extra love. Something about this cold held my appetite captive for most of Friday; however, after finally emerging from an 18-hour slumber late that afternoon, I was starving.
