This post was created in partnership with California Avocados. All opinions are our own.

We all have food memories that make us smile. Maybe it’s a special cake that your grandmother prepared for every birthday, or the fall aromas of pies baking in the oven that fill the house during the holidays. Or perhaps it’s the entrée from a memorable romantic meal, and you can still picture the flickering candles glowing in the room. Everyone has special moments that we cherish because food is an expression of love. It brings people and families together and it’s a way for us to connect and learn about other cultures and unique flavors from all around the world. Since starting our blog in 2015, we have learned so much from our audience and the community, and it is truly inspiring to be a part of this creative space where we can all learn from each other, cook together, and drool over everyone’s photos on social media—even from opposite sides of the planet. We’re excited to share this recipe with you today: it’s cool, minty, chocolatey, and delicious, and the frosty emerald green color from the California avocados will look quite elegant in your hand at your next summer party.

Salted Brownies
Adapted from Just Cook It! by Justin Chapple
Makes one 8-inch square pan
Serves 9 to 16

3/4 cup (170g) unsalted butter, cut into cubes
12 ounces (340g) semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup (198g) granulated sugar
3/4 cup (90g) all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon flaky sea salt, plus more for garnish
3 large eggs
1 tablespoon (15ml) vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350°F/177°C. Line the bottom and sides of an 8-inch square baking pan with parchment paper or aluminum foil, leaving some overhang to lift out the brownies later.

Place a medium saucepan on the stove with a few inches of water, and place over medium heat until simmering.

In a heatproof mixing bowl, stir together the butter and chocolate chips. Place the bowl on top of the pan of simmering water, and stir until the mixture is melted and completely smooth, about 5 minutes. Remove the bowl from the pan and let cool briefly. Then add the sugar, flour, baking powder, and salt, and stir to combine. Add the eggs and vanilla, and stir until smooth and blended. Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan and smooth the top into an even layer.

Bake for 40 to 45 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center of the brownies comes out with a few crumbs attached. Sprinkle the brownies with several generous pinches of flaky sea salt, and let cool completely in the pan, about 1 hour. Use the parchment paper to lift the brownies onto a cutting board, and slice into your desired number of servings. Enjoy!

chocolate check mocha pie

This post was created in partnership with MacKenzie-Childs. All opinions are our own.

What’s the saying? If at first you don’t succeed, pie pie again? That is exactly what happened to us this past week with this deliciously dramatic dessert, because our first two attempts were far from pie-fect. We knew the filling had to be irresistibly creamy, and were determined to do as many tests as needed to achieve the perfect balance of chocolate and coffee. It was lucky test number three which nearly brought tears to our eyes as we tried this chocolatey checkered masterpiece. The texture was smooth and silky with three kinds of chocolate and a heaping spoonful of coffee, topped with a striking black and white courtly check lattice crust… let us introduce you to the chocolate check mocha pie!

let's bake some pie!
