Our favorites this week from around the web:

If you are like me, you love brownies in ANY form. These quick and easy Mississippi Mud Brownies will not disappoint. You may have to share, so be sure to make a double batch.


We came across this Sparkling Champagne and Strawberries Jello and thought it might be the perfect dessert for your Purim seudah.


Melinda brings us Cauliflower Crust Cheesy Pizza which was inspired by her sister's Paleo diet - no grains, only proteins, fruits and veggies.
