Milk Chocolate Cadbury Mini Egg Brownies

Milk Chocolate Cadbury Mini Egg Brownies Has spring arrive for you all? Other than the spring winds, we've only had a few peeks of spring here and there. I still wear my winter coat in the mornings and have gotten away a little bit with not wearing a coat or sweater in the afternoons. It just doesn't seem like spring to me this year. I think I might have said something similar to this last year... but if you think about last year, I'm doing much better with my spring/Easter baking than last year! This is my second post with a spring-y dessert and I have a few more that I'm planning on sharing if all things go as planned! These brownies are from Bakeaholic Mama and are incredibly cute and festive. These are milk chocolate brownies to complement the milk chocolate eggs. This recipe also uses Greek yogurt which adds a little bit of tang to the brownies as well, which were quite moist and yummy. I didn't make any alterations to this recipe though it looks lik

Honey Pecan Pork Chops

Honey Pecan Pork Chops I feel like I owe you a non-dessert recipe! I noticed the other day that it's been nearly three (!!!) months since I've posted a recipe that isn't a dessert. I have several recipes that I want to share, but just haven't gotten around to posting about them. The photos are on my camera, desktop, Dropbox, waiting to be shared and I just need to find time and get them all posted. I guess it's the sugary sweet recipes that catch my attention the most (not always the best thing)... and I suppose this recipe, while not a dessert recipe, is also one of them. But on another note, I'm really going to try hard and post at least one recipe a week! While this is a meat dish, it has a slight sweetness (read: not overly sweet) to it will appeal to anyone that loves the savory-sweet combination. It's also a super fast meal that you can get on the table in less than half an hour. Just steam up some vegetables while the meat is cooking, and you&
