John’s Crazy Candy-Stuffed Brownies

Technically these are Pioneer Woman’s brownies, but John’s now made them twice for parties. Warning: they are intensely rich. I’m linking to the recipe for now and updating when John gets back, as I know he adapted the recipe slightly when he made them today and I want to note the changes. UPDATE: John follows the recipe but A) processes the candy in the food processor so there are smaller bites of candy B) Sometimes swaps Reese’s pieces for the M&Ms and C) Doesn’t put the little M&M dots on top of the brownies.

Mexican Corn

I’ve made a similar dish to this a couple of times, but thought Becky’s version turned out particularly well when we were over there for dinner, so wanted to save it.

Broccoli and Bacon Mac and Cheese (with Butternut Squash Puree)

I was interested in the idea of using butternut squash in mac and cheese (largely because I had a butternut squash from the CSA on hand). This wasn’t too sweet and did add some nice color, though we didn’t really eat the leftovers.

Chicken Sorrentino

I was pretty excited to figure out this recipe — it’s something my husband and I both used to order when we went to college in the Bronx Little Italy, but hadn’t thought about for a couple of years.
