The best of both worlds: brownies and cake. I was looking for an easy, but awesome, recipe for a potluck at work, when I remembered the brownie cake.
Growing up in New York, there was one really popular dessert that you can find at all of the local bakeries.
The funny thing about me is, I don't stress eat (that much) - I stress bake. When I'm sad or upset over something, I reach for the baking mix. So far, my friends and coworkers haven't had an issue with this.
Do you have a favorite blogger? I've been following Taralynn for years now - she posts some of the most creative recipes, and has one of the coolest blogs on the Internet.
I wasn't a Girl Scout when I was little, but I've always been a fan of their cookies. My favorites are Tagalongs, Samoas, and Thin Mints, but only if the thin mints are frozen. Try it!
I was at Publix last weekend picking up some nonessentials and I noticed the Girl Scouts were set up outside. I picked up two boxes of Tagalongs for my brother's birthday (his favorite) and when I got home, I was jealous that I didn't get any for myself. For the past few years, I've wondered what it would be like to bake with magic cookies, so I finally set out to see.
A couple of nights ago, my friend Oscar hosted a few of us to watch “The Interview.” I couldn’t just show up empty handed, but baking for four people seemed a little tedious. Since it was a movie, I figured popcorn would be a safe bet, but naturally with my own sweet twist on it. One of my former coworkers used to make flavored popcorn like this, so I was inspired – she had things like Oreo, birthday cake, and Reese’s.
Do you ever go to the movies and eat all your popcorn during the previews? That was like this. It was really easy to make, and it got inhaled pretty quickly – even before the movie! This recipe is enough for 4 people, so feel free to make more or less depending on how many people you are watching a movie with.
I'm going to be honest with you - I'm not a big fan of Valentine's Day. Something having all that pressure on you to come up with an awesome gift is just...weird to me. The last time I was in a relationship during Valentine's Day, the day was more stress than it was worth. I'm sure a lot of other people feel differently, but that's just me.
Chocolate, chocolate, and more chocolate! And sometimes, real food!
