What a crazy week of weather here in Colorado. We went from 90’s last Sunday, to cold and non-stop rain the rest of the week. School was cancelled on Friday because of all the flooding around the area. Luckily we live in an area that was not affected, but not far from our house creeks were over flowing, and roads were closed. If you have watched the news, I am sure you have seen some of the damage. It will be a long and slow recovery for a lot of the areas.
The winner of the Bake Sale was Team #6:

On a lighter and happier note. I made brownies! Rich fudgy brownies with a mint chocolate chip frosting. Yep, they are just as good as they sound, maybe even better. Today I am joining a great group of ladies to put on a virtual “bake sale” with McCormick. McCormick has always been a staple in my kitchen for different extracts and seasonings, so I am super excited to work with them on this project. This year McCormick has developed a few unique cookie and brownie recipes that are perfect for dessert at home, or any bake sale that you have going on.
If you know me, you know I am a sucker for brownies. I was intrigued by the Raspberry Brownies Bake Sale recipe on McCormick’s site, so I put my own twist on it and made a mint chocolate chip version. McCormick is hosting the virtual “bake sale” on Pinterest. I am on a team with 5 other lovely and talented ladies. Repins on Pinterest = sales, so go ahead and repin to your hearts content. There are a total of 5 teams involved, and the team with the most repins is the winner. BUT, the best part is you guys are going to be the real winners.
McCormick is giving away a prize pack to one lucky reader on EACH blog! Winners will receive a McCormick gift pack full of spices, extracts, and other items needed to inspire baking creativity. This gift pack is valued at $75.
