Chocolate Glazed Brownies

So happy to be joining my fellow Volunteer Field Editors for Taste of Home Tuesday this week, it's been a while.  I've still been making lots of great recipes from Taste of Home, in fact, I've already tried 15 in 2019! Our favorite so far had been the Old Fashioned Fudge Cake, but I think these Chocolate Glazed Brownies have definitely tied for first place.

Now I've got to say, my guys are picky.  I know, I've said it before.  But they are, and they've also been known to pronounce things "too chocolatey." What?!!  I don't even know what that means.  But once I saw Deb A's recipe, I knew that I had to give it a try.

I loved that the recipe used things that I already had in my pantry. My only change was to add about 1/4c of mini chocolate chips to the batter because my pan was 8.5" x 8.5" and I was afraid there wouldn't be enough batter.  It still worried me when I spread it into the pan, but I popped them in the oven and hoped for the best.

Mine baked in 22 minutes, and had a beautiful crackly top.  I briefly considered my oddball crew and was going to skip the glaze, but I'm so glad I didn't.  These were awesome. The guys used them as a base for a brownie sundae, topping them with vanilla bean ice cream and a little whipped cream. I had mine as is.  So, so good.

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Bacon and Cheddar Omelet Bites

Since I already came up with a version of Dunkin Donuts new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites for myself, I decided to make the other variety that they are offering, Bacon & Cheddar, for my husband. Super simple.  Beat up some eggs with salt and pepper.  Add in some shredded cheddar and a slice of bacon cut into 1/4" pieces (I used kitchen shears).  Bake them for about 9 minutes in sprayed mini donut pans. They baked up light and fluffy.  The bacon stayed crisp and there's just the perfect amount of cheese.   I split them up into portions in zip top bags and that way we can just grab a bag and warm them up. My husband laughed when I told him 3 is the serving size.  I'll definitely be doubling the recipe next time! ************************* Copycat Dunkin Donuts Bacon & Cheddar Omelette Bites Print With Image Without Image Author: Jolene's Recipe Journal Ingredients 4 large eggs 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon pepper 3T shredded cheddar cheese 1 slice cooked ba

Buttermilk Rhubarb Muffins #MuffinMonday

This is the first year I've been able to harvest the rhubarb from my garden. Today I got three nice sized, very red stalks so went searching for a recipe and came up with these Buttermilk Rhubarb Muffins from Taste of Home.  I upped the amount of nutmeg to 1/2 teaspoon and also added 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon. I took about 1/4 cup of the flour called for in the recipe and tossed it with the rhubarb to keep it from sinking, a trick I learned from my Gram.  I  use a cookie scoop to distribute the batter evenly. I also topped the batter with raw sugar before baking, we love the sparkle and crunch it gives the muffins. Thank you so much to Stacy for hosting and to all of the other #MuffinMonday bakers for sharing their recipes, be sure to check them out using the links down below!

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites

I'm a huge fan of the Dunkin Donuts Power Breakfast sandwich, so when I started seeing ads for the new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites I stopped in and gave them a try.  They were delicious, but of course, I knew I could make them at home.  I started with the whites of six eggs. You can use pasturized whites if you don't want to do the whole separating, finding a use for the yolks thing.  I beat them up with some salt and pepper. Next up, the tomato and spinach.  I used grape tomatoes, seeded them and then chopped them into 1/4" pieces. I like baby spinach, and I took about 10 leaves and chopped those up into 1/4" pieces as well. I added that to the egg mixture.  When you pour it into the pans, be sure that it all gets evenly distributed.   They bake up pretty quickly, around 9 minutes or so.  Dunkin gives you two egg bites, the mini donut serving size is three. I pop them in ziplocs in the fridge and just pull a bag and reheat them in the microwave for a quick
