You guys, it’s been way too long since I updated this blog. But I’m making up for it now with an awesome recipe! For whatever reason, a few days ago I got the urge to wrap something in zucchini strips (don’t we all?). My mom had also requested I make a cabernet marinara sauce, like her mama used to.

Since the rum gets cooked with the cherries as well as baked in the brownie, most of the alcohol burns off, but if you are sXe you can feel free to leave it out. For an even more intense flavor, substitute black cocoa powder for 1 TBSP of regular cocoa powder!
