A couple of good recipes

My DH Rob had a birthday this week and we had two celebrations to commemorate this event. I had seen this recipe for Buckeye Brownies that my friend Kristen had pinned on Pinterest and decided that it would be the perfect birthday dessert which could be served at both events. These brownies are very rich and very scrumptious. I recommend that you try them at your next special event.

I have been wanting to post the recipe for this salad for quite some time. The problem was I didn't really have a recipe--it was sort of a compilation of several recipes. A few weeks ago I finally analyzed how I made it and came up with this recipe. Be sure to try it, it's really good!

Couscous Salad

3/4 cup couscous (dry)
1 cup chicken broth
1 cup diced tomato or red pepper
1 cup diced peeled cucumber
1/2 cup chopped Kalamata olives
1/4 cup chopped green or red onion
2 Tbsps. lemon juice
2 Tbsps. olive oil
2 Tbsps. crumbled feta cheese
dash of black pepper
pinch of thyme

Heat broth to boiling and then add couscous. Remove from heat and let stand for 5 minutes. In a large bowl whisk together the oil and lemon juice and then add the hydrated couscous and the vegetables. Mix and then fold in the cheese. Season with pepper and thyme. You will probably want to double this because it is so good. 🙂

Have you found any new favorites recently?
