making no wheat brownies on my 43rd birthday

As of today I'm 43 years old.

Anna made me some awesome birthday brownies, while at the same time indulging my recent experiment with deleting wheat. How did she do it? Coconut flour. More on that later.

Best birthday brownies ever.

Happy Birthday Mark. It is hard to imagine you and the cousins are getting past 40. Zeke turns 40 this year! Coconut brownies sounds wonderful. I suspect that Anna enjoyed them as well given her interest in chocolate. It is fun to share a special treat with a special person. Aunt Sue Ella
