I like trying new recipes. I get it from my Mom. I definitely have some favorites, but like to mix it up a bit too. We had some leftover sweet potatoes from Saturday's gathering, so I tried a recipe for Sweet Potato-Pinto Bean balls with Lemon-Tahini sauce last night. They weren't great. With or without the sauce, we agreed. Though I see J took them for his lunch today. I love how easy he is to please. I do, however, want to give another thumbs up for the Food & Wine recipe that Elspeth posted, for Butternut Chocolate-Chip Brownies. I made a batch for the gathering. My Mom copied the recipe, and my sister gave it a double thumbs up, and I know she'd agree that, unlike her crunchy vegi sister, she's a typical American eater. The aunts and uncles wouldn't touch it once J shared the squash part. It is so chocolatey, you truly do not taste any hint of squash. Give it a try, and get a dose of beta-carotene with your chocolate. You'll be glad you did. Promise.
