Loaded Kit Kat Peanut Butter Brownies

While I was back home last holiday season and Mike was here in Kuwait, he took the opportunity to load up on a few choice junk food items that usually don’t make their way into our cart when he and I shop together.

I came back to a kitchen fully stocked with chips, soda, and candy bars by the case. (Oh my God, it was a nightmare. I can’t imagine what he was thinking.) (more…)

The Best Chewy Brownies

Wednesday, June 26th, 2013


I recently happened on the best-ever homemade chewy brownies recipe completely by chance.

I wasn’t in the mood for dessert at the time; surprisingly I didn’t have visions of chocolate beckoning to me, and I certainly didn’t think I needed a new brownie recipe. (Especially since the last brownie recipe I shared with you is not only a bit healthier than most, but still completely satisfying.)

I had about 20 minutes of extra time to kill and two bookcases full of cookbooks with which to waste time. I had been working on an article all day, so in need of a diversion from work, I turned to The Best of America’s Test Kitchen 2011, a cookbook I’ve only peeked into maybe once or twice before. As I flipped through the recipes, I stopped at the Easy Cheesy Quiche for Two to ogle it for a moment, then lingered a bit in the seafood chapter (boy do their Maryland Crab Cakes sound divine), and finally flipped to the back of the book. Of course, as any cookbook connoisseur knows, the desserts are lurking back there. I really wasn’t planning to make anything, just doing a little window shopping.

Let me just say, window shopping of any kind is a dangerous practice. (more…)

Bakery-Style Frosted Brownies {And the Aftermath of Hurricane Sandy & Helping Those in Need}

Thursday, November 8th, 2012

I thought I knew about the destruction and havoc that natural disasters could wreak.

I’m familiar with snowstorms that come bearing five-foot-high-walls of snow, and personally knowing people (dear family and friends) who have been snowed onto the highway for two or three days straight, with little or no food or water, no place to go to the bathroom, and no way to contact loved ones once their cell phones die.

And I lived in Florida for three years during law school, so I’m no stranger to hurricanes either.

But this was a real wake-up call.

Hurricane Sandy has affected so many people, in ways that are just unthinkable to most of us. (more…)
