Clodhopper Brownies

Well, the inevitable has happened. I have returned to work. Like real work where I wake up and leave my house and come home at the end of the day and make dinner and wonder where the day went and want to crawl into bed at 8:30.

I might have done that this week instead of publishing this recipe.

But this is perfect for those of us who feel (and frankly, are) too busy to bake. Boxed brownies are my go-to. Anyone can stir a brownie mix, egg, oil, and water with a fork and bake for half an hour. Really. It takes 5 minutes to prepare.

In fact. Stop reading. Go do that right now.

Pumpkin Whoopie Pies and Mini Cakes

When they told me I could make cake out of just pumpkin puree and cake mix, I was skeptical. I thought the texture would be mushy and wet and that it just wouldn't work.

I should have known better. Especially after making cupcakes out of just cake mix and a can of coke.

But, as many kitchen experiments go, this one wasn't quite as planned.
