Rich and Fudgy Zucchini Brownies

Rich and Fudgy Zucchini Brownies - Chew Nibble Nosh

When I was young, my mother had this wonderful little garden on the side of our house.  I used to love watching the garden grow each summer, and daily trips out to pick fresh tomatoes, snap peas and zucchini were a highlight.  I remember spending my summer days outside, playing with friends, and we’d snack on sugar snap peas, fresh from the garden, as we played. The zucchini always fascinated me, though, because there were some years when nothing would grow, and others when we’d end up with zucchini as long as our arms, that seemed to weigh as much as a small child.  My mom would make zucchini bread after zucchini bread after zucchini bread, and we’d laugh at the size of our ginormous zucchini.  They were like veggie snacks for giants.

(My Favorite) Mac & Cheese

My Favorite Mac and Cheese - Chew Nibble Nosh

Is there anyone out there who doesn’t like macaroni and cheese?  I don’t think I’ve ever met that someone.  If there is someone out there who doesn’t like it, I don’t think they’ve tried one like this.  This is my all time favorite Mac & Cheese recipe.  It’s a little more “grown up” than the usual, I guess.  Not that the kids seem to mind.  They usually dive right in too.

With loads of cheese, butter and pasta, it’s definitely a splurge, but it’s a splurge worth splurging on.
