My youngest son turned two last weekend. And knowing that he was going to be two, and not remember how well or poorly I planned his birthday, I choose poorly. I filled his room with balloons, fed him sugar, took him to the toy store- all things that took little-to-no planning. And when I thought I couldn’t fall any further, Sunday night birthday dinner arrived. As I pulled the gluten free, egg free, dairy free brownies out of the oven, they sizzled like lava. I’ve never seen brownies look quite like the science experiment that was alive in front of me. So, in less than two minutes, I tried to find a substitute. The only other gf/ef/df option available- rice krispie treats.
