Happy B-Day Mom! Raw Brownies

Today is my Mom's birthday! It was a great day to be outside! It was in the 70's here in AZ. So we took a stroll outside with my dogs..

as soon as they were up!
Since I'm still not feeling well I decided to (un)cook pasta with basil pesto, my usual big salad with a choice of a vinaigrette or her Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing and pecan brownies. Little did I realize that my mom can't stand walnuts. She says her dislike for them stems from her childhood- when she and her sibling had to pick them. She explained that walnuts have a difficult to remove husk similar to young coconuts.
