I have some exciting news! As you know, I'm an ambassador for the "It’s What’s For Dinner Wednesday!" Challenge. This week will draw the month long challenge to an end and the wonderful people at beef have allowed me to give away one of the Beef Grilling Gift Bags! The gift bag includes The Healthy Beef Cookbook, a set of Crate & Barrel Grilling Tools, Sur La Table mini steak thermometers, a reusable shopping bag and other items to help you shop for and cook healthy beef meals. I have received this gift bag and it's wonderful. If you want to enter leave a comment telling me the name of your favorite beef dish. The giveaway ends Wednesday at midnight and the winner will be announced Thursday.
I figured we needed a sweet treat to celebrate this wonderful giveaway, so here are some wonderful brownies. This summer I always brought goodies to work with me and these were a big hit with the new superintendent Mrs. Aaron. She enjoys her sweets and still looks great! What's not to love about a rich, fudgy brownie topped with smooth, creamy goodness and chocolate chips! Sounds like a winner to me :)
