2 Minute Microwave Brownie

Do you ever get a hankering for a brownie but definitely can't wait for for an oven to warn up, mix ingredients and then wait for the brownies to bake? Me too.

This is one of those recipes you write down and leave in your kitchen junk drawer in case of emergencies. Or, screenshot and save as a favorite image on your phone.

You are only 2 minutes away from an warm, gooey, chocolaty brownie. Give it a try!

I made a quick video to show you just how easy it is to make this brownie. Ice cream is not required but sure does add to the deliciousness.

2 Minute Microwave Brownie

2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 tablespoons milk
1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup dark (of light) brown sugar, packed
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
pinch of salt
2 tablespoons chocolate chips

The Best Salad Ever - Cranberry, Feta and Walnut

I'm obsessed with this salad. This is the kind of salad I order at restaurants but never thought I could recreate at home. Thankfully I was wrong.

The Best Salad Ever - Cranberry, Feta and Walnut

Before Christmas my friend Angela from Handmade in the Heartland shared a Facebook live on Mason Jar Salads. I was so intrigued. Jacob and I both struggle with new options for lunch and the thought of spending less than an hour on Sunday and having lunch for the full week was magical; I knew I had to try it.

I popped over to Target and bought the jars. The 32 ounce wide-mouth jars work perfectly. They hold the perfect amount for lunch and are easy to dump out onto a plate/bowl at work. So once I had the jars I needed the prefect recipe and this is it.

Blind Box BBQ in Kansas City

Jacob and I are on a quest to try all the BBQ spots in Kansas City. It will probably take us 10 years but we're up for the challenge.

I've had Blind Box BBQ on my list for months so that was our first stop. They describe themselves as "...old school BBQ with a modern twist" and I totally agree. The restaurant atmosphere was perfection - servers wearing fun bow ties, beautiful wood tables, industrial lighting and light music playing in the background. As a marketing nerd I also really appreciated their overall branding, menu layout and style.
