Brownies!

We’ve been planning on making these for days, but finally got around to it today. Not really sure how we managed to delay something as awesome as brownies, but it happened.

Black Bean Phyllo Wraps

If asked, I would say that black beans are our bean of choice around here. I like to prep one or two pounds in my slow cooker and use during the week for various meals – nachos, black bean quinoa burgers, chili, whatever strikes our fancy. This week I wanted something a little different. I’m …
