oh snap, out of retirement!

i know it's been a long time but i started baking again! today i made pumpkin cheesecake! i kinda winged the recipe so i don't have the exact measurements of anything. it's simple though. brown sugar, butter and graham crackers for the crust. then cream cheese, pumpkin, eggs, sugar, vanilla, ginger, allspice, cinnamon and nutmeg mixed together and poured on top. voila!

here is ian enjoying his personal pie:

edited to add:
um, well, i guess ian REALLY LIKED this pie? (this is about 4 hours after he started eating it?????)

Dark Chocolate Mint Pecan Brownies

It's spring! Time to open the windows and bust out the sweets. I amended my Tar heel Pie recipe to make these super sweet brownies. Half dark and half milk chocolate chips melted down and mixed with pecans. Topped with Dark Chocolate sauce and mint with dark chocolate chips!

Easy recipe and very tasty! The glaze is super sweet so I only topped half of the cookies.

It's late so I will post the recipe later. Plus then I'll have some feedback as this is for a coworker's birthday.
