Hey! I see a carrot in there!

Let's get down to business...and defeat the Huns! (That was for all you Mulan fans out there!) Kudos to the person that IDs that part... hehe

Project Wifey Wife #3 Dessert:

Carrot and Spinach Chocolate Brownies

There is a lil' carrot guy who somehow dodged the puree-ing blades in my Magic Bullet.... sneaky soma-biatch.

I tried this recipe out from the Deceptively Delicious Cookbook. Here's the low down.

I pureed some spinach and some carrots... and even threw a few to the pupsters.

Such a patient fellah'

Then, I melted this Mam-ah Jam-ah.... and threw  few to me-sters

Must....not....drizzle.... in....my....mouth

::wipes drool:: Then, I whisked...

Oh YEAAAAAAAA...Chocolate porn... excuse my language.

I find that the best way to keep my kitchen spill and splatter free, is to lay down a towel... a cute festive one preferably.

After I baked it, I served it with some DELICIOUS Vanilla Haagen Dazs... dUUUde! Sooo good.

Hubsters said that it was more "chocolate bread" than it was brownie. It is a work in progress and next time (and there will be a next time) I will add more chocolate (to the bowl and my belly) and maybe not use Whole wheat flour. It was a bit grainy.

Here's the recipe if you're interested:


For dinner, and yes we ate dinner first, I made Filipino Chicken Adobo and Eggplant Adobo. Turned out good. But as easy as this sounds, Adobo is truly an art form. If you put too much of one thing... you'll ruin it. THIS dish is a filipino staple. I will perfect this before my kids are born.

Here's the recipe in a nutshell...

Boil 1 cup vinegar, 1 cup water, 2 Tbs of chopped garlic, 2 bay leaves, salt and pepper (about 5 shakes and 3 twists if you know what I'm sayin')

Add chicken and cook for 30 minutes. You can use party wings like I did, because they're fun, or whole chicken pieces. Then, add about 1/4-1/2 cup of soy sauce... depending on how salty you want it.

In the meantime, you can lightly saute slices of eggplant.

Remove the soup to brown the chicken a bit.

Add the sauce back to the pans... half in the chicken, half in the eggplant. Serve with hot rice! YUM!

Kain na Tayo! (Translation: Let's EAT!)

One more thing before I leave you... I hate this WITH A PASSION....

Dishes... my chore Nemesis... What's yours?

  1. Carrot and spinach brownies? Quite... inventive? Although I am a fan of black bean brownies, so I can't be too shocked!

    I HATE dishes, too. Seriously the worst thing ever.


I want to know what you think...no really I do! Leave a comment, question, or just a hello. It'll make me SMILE!
