I have a secret….well it’s not so secret because I tell everyone I know…but I’m super proud that I’ve managed to increase my children’s veggie intake by sneaking them into treats! It feels like a huge accomplishment when one of my darling girls asks for a treat and I smugly hand them a vegetable infused Not So Blondie Brownie.
Being the generous woman I am, I’m here to share my not so secret recipe with the world!
