ESPRESSO BROWNIESReprinted from Celi-Yak News Summer 2011 Tester's notes: While chickpeas usually make me think of garlic and lemon and a big bowl of hummus, it turns out that they also get along with chocolate and coffee. These brownies have a dense but tender texture and a very grown-up taste. Krista says the coffee powder is optional, but it really adds a deep, dark flavour, which was even better the next day.
MONSTER COOKIESReprinted from Celi-Yak News Summer 2011 Tester's notes: Bonnie got this recipe from her friend Heather, who got it from a manufacturer of gluten-free oats. Gluten free products can now be found at many Winnipeg health food stores, organic food stores, specialty shops and even some grocery chains. This is a soft, chewy, delicious cookie that should appeal to everyone, gluten issues or not. Bonnie prefers adding raisins and coconut, but you can use any combo. Make sure to watch while baking: peanut butter cookies can scorch quickly.

GIBLET GRAVYReprinted from Celi-Yak News Winter 2011 We've included the liver in our giblet gravy, which gives it a richer flavor. If you simply cannot abide with even a hint of the taste of liver, you can leave it out. Giblet gravy is usually served "chunky", if you want, you can purée it for a smoother gravy. One traditional option is the addition of chopped hard boiled eggs to the gravy. If you want to try that, chop up 3 hard boiled eggs finely, and add them to the gravy in step 5.
