Dutch Oven Original Sin

What is more sinful that chocolate???? When it comes in the form of a gooey brownie over rich Oreo's and topped with vanilla ice cream, I would say nothing in the food world can be more sinful. This dessert is perfect for camping trips or back yard parties. The texture of the brownie is devilishly gooey and full of fudge goodness. The Oreos soften into a delicious crust with warm cream filling. Just make sure you have people to share with when you make this dessert. The finished product is so good that you will want to keep it all for yourself, but it is so rich that you know you cannot make it through! S'mores??? Who needs them when you have Original Sin?!?!
 25 Oreo Sandwich Cookies
1/2 Cup Vegetable Oil
1 Cup Sugar
2 Eggs
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1/4 teaspoon Salt
1/4 teaspoon Baking Powder
1/2 Cup All Purpose Flour
3 Tablespoons (Heaping) Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
3 Tablespoons Butter, Melted

1. Grease the inside of a 10-inch Dutch Oven with butter. Line the bottom with cookies to form an even layer.
2. Combine the oil, sugar, eggs and vanilla in a large bowl. Whisk to combine.
3. In a separate bowl, combined salt, baking powder, flour and cocoa.
4. Slowly whisk the dry ingredients into the wet. Add the melted butter. Stir until thoroughly combined.
5. Pour the batter over the cookies, making sure to cover all cookies and fill in all spaces.
6. Place the lid on the Dutch Oven.
7. Bake with 5 hot coals (grey and ashy) on the bottom and 15 on top.
8. Allow to bake until completely set on top. The inside will still be gooey. This should take 30-40 minutes but will depend on how hot the coals are when placed on the oven.
9. Carefully remove from the coals.
10. Spoon into a bowl and serve with ice cream.

Note: This delicious dessert can be made in a traditional oven. Simply use a 9-inch cake pan instead of the Dutch Oven. Bake at 350-degrees for 25-35 minutes, checking often to not overcook.

Lentil Burgers

Last night I cooked a large pot of lentils as part of our family dinner, which means that today, I was left wondering what I could do with all these lentils for the coming week. My typical use for lentils is in chili or soups, however, that is not something that I really wanted on this bright, spring day. Instead, I thought about how I could morph the leftovers into something new that I could use throughout the week, and that is when I thought of revamping my normal veggie burger recipe. Now, as promised, since this is the Quarantine Cooking Series, please feel free to use whatever beans or greens you have in your house. While I love the way this recipe turned out, it is more important that you use what you have and the technique to create a delicious meal for you and your family. Additionally, I like my veggie burgers on the spicy side. However, this is another place when personal modifications should be made to your palate preferences. 3 Tablespoons canola oil, divided

Black-eyed Pea Croquettes

So it is well known that I make  Black Bean Burgers  all the time. I love the versatility of the recipe and the ability to make a week of lunches in about 15 minutes. Today, I found myself with a bowl of leftover black-eyed peas in the fridge and the desire for something new. This recipe is also great because I always have canned black-eyed peas in the pantry since they are one of my husband's favorite vegetables, which means I can make this recipe anytime. So whether you use leftover homemade, like I did, or canned, this recipe is great. Additionally, these are not coated and fried like traditional croquettes, which makes them an even better option. Enjoy these as a side dish, on a sandwich, or with a side salad for a delicious, healthy, and easy meal. These do not hold or reheat well, so enjoy them while they're hot. 2 Cups Black-eyed Peas, drained and rinsed 3 Scallions, whites and greens thinly sliced 1 Clove Garlic 1 Egg, lightly beaten 3/4 Cup Bread Crumbs,

Banana Zucchini Bread with Raisins and Cinnamon Sugar Swirl

It is that time of year again when I am working to develop new and interesting ways to use up all of the vegetables coming from the garden. Last year, I posted "The Best Zucchini Bread"  recipe; this is still a great recipe but this one is even better! Since entering my last trimester of pregnancy, I am craving cinnamon raisin bread. This recipe was created to help merge the two flavors while also adding in some nutrients from bananas, as I always seems to have 2 or 3 that get left over and become a little too ripe. This bread is so fragrant, moist, and delicious! If I had some walnuts in the freezer, I might even finely chop some and incorporate them into the swirl for even more texture. This bread is perfect for breakfast, afternoon snack, or even dessert. I hope you will give this recipe a try. 2 very ripe Bananas, mashed 1 cup Zucchini, grated 1/2 cup Vegetable Oil 1 Egg, beaten 1 teaspoon Vanilla 3/4 cup Sugar 1 teaspoon Baking Soda 1/2 teaspoon Bakin
