Butternut Squash Mash

Butternut Squash Mash

Butternut squash is so delicious on it’s own.  A simple cooking method and a little flavor added, and you have a complete side dish made in no time.  Rustic, yet elegant enough to be on any holiday menu.  Sometimes less is more. Butternut Squash Mash 1 large […]

Roast Pork Loin with Mushrooms and Leeks

Roast Pork Loin with Mushrooms and Leeks

I’m not usually a fan of roasting large pieces of meat….  to me it just takes longer and often ends up overcooked and dry.  By splitting the roast lengthwise, it creates 2 loins – cutting the cooking time in half (as much as I love […]

The Perfect Gluten Free Brownie

The Perfect Gluten Free Brownie

I have been making a pan of brownies every week for the past few months.  That’s alot of chocolate….  but after several attempts, I have reached what I think is the perfect gluten free brownie (for me at least :P). These brownies are thick, dense, moist, slightly cakey with a little crumb.  Seriously, I am one happy gal!  I usually only eat brownies if they are loaded with nuts and chocolate chips, however this base recipe is perfect on it’s own.  But once you add in some toasted pecans, it takes these brownies to a new level!  These gluten and grain free brownies will be sure to please any chocolate lover!

I’m going to be honest with you… there are sometimes when I make something and I try to convince myself that it tastes just as good as it’s gluten filled counterpart-  I don’t just publish anything on here, I am pretty serious about only posting recipes that I absolutely love.  That’s why sometimes I may say something I have made, but don’t see a recipe up- at least not for awhile… that is because I like to tweak the recipes until I am fully satisfied.  That is why it is also really important to me that you leave feedback after trying a recipe.  You may have noticed, but my comments are turned off right now ( my site was getting overloaded with spam comments daily and moderating them became a full time job!)  So hopefully we will get that taken care of soon and the comments will be turned on again.  Feel free to post any feedback on my facebook site or to my email- glutenfreefix@gmail.com!

I love my other fudge brownie recipe, however, this one is a thicker cut brownie…. and still fudgy!
