Campfire Skillet Brownies For Two

Campfire Skillet Brownies -- the best dessert for a cozy night by the fire with your love!

Easy Campfire Skillet Brownies For Two -- What better dessert for a cozy night by the fire with your love?

Hey Mom and Dad, I’m talking to you. You deserve a little break every once in a while. Especially during this time of year, when life is filled with family and happy chaos.

Tonight is one of those times after putting the kids to bed, where you both can sit by the fireplace, curled up on the sofa, with the Christmas tree lit up, romantic holiday music playing, and enjoy a big slice of these easy campfire (yes, I can put some marshmallows on top and call it a day) skillet brownies.

I say easy because they are a box mix. Yep, Duncan Hines is my jam. They seriously deliver on amazing box mixes for us dairy-free people, and I love love love their brownies.

I literally make them for any occasion, or just when I’m feeling some brownies, which is like all.the.time.

Easy Campfire Skillet Brownies For Two -- perfect for a cozy night in with your love!

These upcoming few weeks known as the holiday season can be total bliss. The unforgettable time to talk about old memories and spend time together making new ones. Where you can catch up on movies and sing carols with friends, and all your family gets to be together for a short while.

It’s like this short moment in time that’s carved out every year where true life doesn’t exist and this alternate universe is your life instead. Happiness, joy, and love is all around. And time together is precious and enjoyed.

It’s in this magical space that make these brownies perfect. They make your laughs lighter, your tummies fuller, and your time together sweeter. They melt in your mouth with a decadent chocolate flavor that is rich and gooey all at once. And the roasted marshmallows on top ooze into each little crumb of the brownies so that when you bite into them you get a perfect crunch and chew all at the same time. It’s almost too good to be true.

Happy holidays, to you.

Am I really writing a post on a Saturday? This is epic. Once-in-a-lifetime. You are so lucky.

I hope you know that this is serious if I’m breaking into my weekend relaxation time (ha! actually catch up on homework time) and oh boy are you in for a treat.

Drumroll please… I am (jumping up and down) thrilled to bring you Vivian & Me’s guest chef for our Thanksgiving week recipes!

Hunter Davis

This is Hunter Davis, my Hunter twin, and he is a cool cat guy with a personal chef service company called The Dish and the Spoon located right here on the sandy white beaches of 30A.

He caters for any and all types of events including on the beach shrimp boils (his specialty), small parties, large get-togethers, special occasions (like my senior prom), family dinners, and so much more . Hunter makes amazing allergy-friendly meals (and normal people recipes too!).

On a more personal note, we’ve known each other since I was like a little tiny kid and he was a young teenager. It’s like we’ve basically known each other forever, ya know?

Maple Bacon & Blueberry Sweet Potato Hash

Maple Bacon & Blueberry Sweet Potato Hash

Maple-Bacon-hash-5

I don’t know what possessed me to put blueberries in this hash, but it was the best decision I’ve ever made. It’s like the combo of the crunchy sweet potato and then the pop of the juice blueberries, hello.

I know blueberries are almost out of style for the season, but grab those last few boxes and get kickin’.

It’s like fresh summer meets fall and creates the perfect moment of bliss and perfection in a breakfast hash. It’s like you stumble into the kitchen with your glasses on and messy top bun, and you somehow end up being a genius morning chef who makes cool breakfast combos. And the maple bacon?

Maple Bacon

Drool worthy.

Baking the bacon with the maple syrup makes the bacon almost caramelize/candy the maple syrup into it, and there’s this crunch and chew that can’t be topped. I think the maple bacon makes the segway from sweet potato to blueberry.

It’s like a sweet potato, blueberry, maple bacon concoction. And I luv it. [Read more…]

Tropical-1

Happy September! Whoa that went fast.

I hope you enjoyed last week’s first lunchbox post, I sure enjoyed eating it. As the summer is winding down I thought a tropical box would be the perfect way to end it, with the beach, and the sun, and the sand. Are we really sure we’re ready for winter yet, summer? Maybe just stick around a little bit longer.

Please?

This box is filled with gluten-free fish sunflower butter and jelly sandwiches complete with eyes and a smile, fruity tangy pineapple, relaxed sand dollars, homemade seaweed dip, and a Jello and gluten-free graham cracker beach scene with a Fruit Rollup lounge chair and Swedish fish.
