We are currently in a salmon situation in our house, because every once in a while we get a little, oh, INDULGENT (more on that in a bit) and I have to get us back on a heathy eating track. And that always involves salmon, which is not only one of our favorite fishies, but is also a superfood (so are tea and blueberries by the way, two of my other faves!). And when you are doing a deep dive into healthy eating, anything that is a superfood sounds good to me. In this case, I kept a little of the naughtiness going by bathing my salmon in a mixture of bourbon and lime and other good things, but just enough to give it a little sass. Super good and good for you…let’s make it!
Oh boy, do I have a saga to go along with this recipe for bourbon brownie bites! But before I get to saga-ing, let me just say that these super-fudgy treats are packed with chocolate, walnuts, and just enough bourbon to give them a naughty little kick. Yep, these brownies are definitely not for the kiddos…you get to keep them all for yourself, because BOURBON. Ready to take everyone’s favorite chocolate treat and give them a grown-up spin? Let’s make them! But first…THE SAGA. If you have been reading this blog for even a little while, you know more than a little bit about my grits-loving, wise-cracking, ridiculously romantic Southern husband. And because Valentine’s Day is hands-down his favorite holiday, I had various great ideas for romantic dinner recipe posts that I was planning to put up this past weekend. I always try and do him proud with the Valentine’s Day posts, because he loves it so much, and it’s my way of giving it back, just a little. I usually write up the Valentine’s Day posts pretty close to the day, so I was planning to write this past one on Saturday the 13th. But then on Wednesday the 10th, THIS happened.
