Red Velvet Swirl Brownies www.lemonsforlulu.com

Red Velvet Brownies are swirled with cream cheese and peppermint bits!  Perfect for the holidays!     I’m in full panic mode.  I went into Thanksgiving feeling very blasé about Christmas gifts.  I had a swagger in my step because I knew I had Christmas in the bag.  Well, not literally in the bag, more like in my virtual shopping carts.  But then Black Friday came and ruined my peace of mind. I traveled over the … Continue reading →

Peppermint Ice Cream and Mocha Brownie Sundaes


  My husband and I don’t go on dates very often.  When we do, it’s usually because my parents make us an offer we can’t refuse.  They usually insist on getting the kids early and keeping them over night.   As I said, an offer we CANNOT refuse!  My husband and I just had one of those evenings.  We managed to sneak in a date night with some good friends of ours.  Everything was going great, we had lots of laughs and great food, it was … Continue reading →

Blonde Brownies flavored with Biscoff spread and caramel filled Rolo candies! The best brownies ever! I've been buying Biscoff spread for over a year now.  I first bought a jar to make Bakarella's Fudge.    I fell in love with the taste and never looked back.  Since then, I've managed to keep my Biscoff hoarding tendencies a secret.  I kept  my little jar hidden in the cupboard somewhere behind the half empty jar of molasses and the corn … Continue reading →

German Chocolate Bourbon Brownies

German Chocolate Bourbon Brownies

I went to Target the other day with my 4-year-old Lucy.  I needed a few new strands of Christmas lights.  Each time we walk into the store, we have to check out each item in the dollar bins.  We could be there for a good 15 or 20 minutes checking all the fun things that we don't need, like Candyland band-aids.  I was making little mental notes for stocking stuffers, wink. wink. After looky-looin' through all the bins, we moved on to the … Continue reading →
