I have a thing for cookbooks. I love them, want to collect them, read them, and enjoy them so much that I'm sure I have way too many for my own good, but yet they still keep coming in. So I've told myself that I could only add to my collection if I actually make the recipes in them and give a few away that I don't use anymore. So, two went to sisters and two are on their way from amazon. I have to say that they were super cheap since I got them used. Just a few dollars... Honey, Don't be mad. These are actually going to be VERY useful. They have all the homey kind of food I love but are all healthy versions that will keep my figure getting slimmer not bigger over the holidays. They also list all the nutritional info for all the recipes including the food exchanges. How did I find them? I checked them out from the library while looking for some cookbooks with slimmed down versions of my favorite foods.
Today I'm trying the brownie recipe. It's kinda great that it only makes 8 brownies since there are only two of us living in this little Enchanted Cottage. I'm waiting for them to cool as I type at this very moment. So far they smell delicious, just like regular brownies. Let's see if they taste as good.

We'll see what the Honey thinks of these brownies tonight when he is looking for an evening snack. Let us know what you think Honey!
