Today is a very important day – it is TheBetterHalf’s Birthday! As the biggest chocolate peanut butter lover of all time (I’m pretty sure he thinks he was the first person to like the delicious flavor combo), I of course had to make him something choco pb. And since I already made a chocolate peanut butter cake for Chez CateyLou’s birthday, I made TheBetterHalf Peanut Butter Brownies! Fudgy chocolate brownies with a thick peanut butter layer sandwiched right in the middle – if that doesn’t scream Birthday Treat, I don’t know what does!

Hello from 35,000 feet in the air! TheBetterHalf and I are on our way to Seattle for memorial day weekend. (Ok now that I have internet to post this, we are already in Seattle. But I wrote this on the plane :) ) We are so excited for our little getaway – I desperately need a vacation. I’ve heard great things about this city, and I know it has a great food scene! Our list of places to eat is long but there is always room for more– if you have any suggestions, let me know!  And make sure to follow me on Instagram for picture updates from our trip.

With memorial day weekend comes summer and with summer comes zucchini! I love baking with zucchini in the summertime. You don’t taste it at all, but it makes baked goods really moist. Plus, who couldn’t use a little extra nutrition in their muffins? And to top it all off, these chocolate zucchini muffins are 100% whole wheat, are made with Greek yogurt, and use coconut oil!  Such a healthy and delicious way to start your day.
