Black Cherry Barbecue Gluten Free Brownies
I spent half my Sunday morning and most of my Sunday evening in the kitchen. Originally, I was going to wake up early (well, 7 a.m.) and walk down to the beach and drink coffee and read my book (currently reading What I Talk About When I Talk About Running by Haruki Murakami… and by currently reading I mean I own it and haven’t opened it yet but have thought about opening it) but it was super foggy (who would have guessed), so instead, I made these brownies.
So yes, I have kitchen things now. I know you all were concerned. Truthfully, the only thing that is totally unpacked is my kitchen because I need furniture and I’m too busy being outside and enjoying 60 and 70 degree temperatures and sunshine instead to go shopping. (Sorry I’m not sorry.) I have so many recipes coming up for the blog, I can’t even. Even things that aren’t breakfast. I don’t know what’s happening to me.
On to these brownies. Krave asked me create a tailgate recipe with jerky and I don’t know why the first thing that came to my mind was brownies. Tailgating can get real unhealthy real fast. So you can have one of these brownies with a beer and your day isn’t totally shot (but eat a salad, please).
I actually went to the DMV the week before last to get my license and forgot to eat lunch in between that and errands. I had a bag of Basil Citrus Turkey in my bag and before I knew it, it was half gone. So. Good. They were sampling flavors at Ragnar and it took everything in me not to eat all of them.
