/╲/\╭ºoꍘoº╮/\╱\ Happy Halloween! ∋━━o(｀∀´oメ）～→ Do you have any plans for tonight, like taking your kids trick-or-treating or passing out candy? I’m taking Jellybean out; she’s a tiger this year. We ordered her costume off of Prime at the beginning of the month.
While on Overdrive one day I saw a cookbook that had delicious brownies on its cover:
I learned Fat Witch Bakery is popular in Chelsea Market in NY. I thought it’d be fun to check out the hard copy and make at least one recipe from it.
The husband was hanging out on the couch with me while I had thumbed through it. The blondies recipe made him drool.
I’ve never made blondies before so I set aside time last weekend to make them. However I ran into two snafu’s:
- You can see my brownies are not blonde. I realized afterwards that light brown sugar is needed to make the brownies blonde.
- I didn’t use the right pan. I had used my Pyrex 8 x 8″ when I need a true, brownie pan – the metal 9 x 9″ one. I ended up having to bake the batter 10 more minutes because the middle was jiggly raw.
They still tasted good. I like how there is some crumb and cake texture to the outcome. The brownies still came out moist. I also used chopped, dark chocolate because the teen had used up the chocolate chips in her friend’s birthday cookies.
I may try to make this recipe again. We’ll see how much time I have.
E recently wanted a break from meat so I’ve cooked some vegetarian dinners. We had tried teriyaki stir-fry udon noodles from Costco for two nights. It was good. I like how the udon was chewy and thick; its texture and taste reminded me of dukbokki.
Then we had Japanese curry (Daiso sells a box for $4.) for three dinners. Besides garlic and shallots, I cut up organic ingredients:
- carrots of many colors
- russet potatoes
- firm tofu
The youngest wasn’t pleased with one of the ingredients I had put in; she said she was tired of the curry which meant she didn’t like how there were mushrooms in it and she was too lazy to pick them out. How rude. Brat.
Okay; I need to take off and work on my swap gifts. The clock’s tickin’. Thanks for dropping by. TTYL.
