I seemed to have gotten caught up in the hoopla of school. For the past few months its been a complete focus around passing tests, doing homework, once and awhile home cooked meals with more lesser meals and skipped breakfasts with graduation peaking above the horizon. I haven’t had much time for anything these past few months, let alone time to sit back and read through the cookbooks I got right after christmas! I have comics left unread, books never opened and movies never watched. It seems that I have been sinking in the middle of the pond, waiting for that hand to pull me back up to the surface.
With one more day of classes, two MORE new cooks books given to me by sean for my recent birthday (an amazing surprise!) and tons of movies, books and comics to read I think I am ready for the summer. As I sit down and finish my last study cram sessions, pull those all-nighters and pass out on the couch with sean after yet again more long days, the prospect of completely nothingness filled with cooking, reading, sean and relaxing seems just around the corner. In that new hope comes the excitement for my blog, which shall fill up with the stories of my lazy days, busy beach days, food adventures and photographs because this is after all just about catching the memories in a moment to be recorded from a lifetime for just myself and those who take the time to read my posts on a passby. Enjoy :)
It seems like only yesterday it was hot and sunny out all the time. I really do miss that! Winter seems to want to over stay her welcome, bringing cold rain and snow more often then sunny days. Being so busy it makes me sad that i haven’t had time to cook or bake anything. However, as i see the open window of spring I have some hope that the kitchen will soon be a more often than not place of refuge.
So tonight for the SECOND time I decided to go see the avengers again with sean and his brother. OMG. Now I was at the original midnight showing of the avengers I would like to state. But seeing it a second time?!? HOLY COW! It was just as amazing and totally worth it, spending the money again. I have to say Iron Man is totally my favorite! Now i kno a lot of people are like ‘why??’ cuz man, hes a complete dick! like he has the best lines and deff just has the best personality, plus a super cool suit that goes right through some weird giant monster thingy blowing it up from the inside.
Avengers is and was amazing. Simple.
Last night after working i decided to make Cookie Brownies. Mhmmmm. I saw them on a box once and have made it a couple of times but last night I decided to make it from scratch, both batters. It came out rele good minus the fact that while I was in the kitchen I was so distracted that i kept messing up the ingredients and adding and measuring everything in wrong. It was a complete mess!! but after everything was said and done, i broke the oven (literally i broke the handle) and added way too much brownie mix it was not bad! so if your interested in making these do experiment! especially with the different types of brownie and cookie mix there is out there.
Take any cookie batter you want ( i used the regular choco chip that was on the back of the choco chip bag). I suggest you make that one first and put it in the fridge. That makes it cold and easier to handle once you need it.
Take any Brownie mix ( I used the Hershey’s Brownie Mix recipe from online ). Make this batter and pour into desired pan after it has been sprayed or buttered, i personally like to use butter i think it comes out better. (tip: don’t use all the brownie mix in the pan because it will rise and once you have the cookie dough on top you don’t want it to over flow)
Next take out the cookie dough and put spoonfuls covering the brownie in the pan. Leave a slight edge around the pan. Make sure to fill in any gaps in the centers.
place in oven at 350 degrees and cook for about 45 to 55 minutes depending. Use a tooth pick to make sure brownie is cooked through (that means the cookie is done too)
