Question of the Day: Today you needed more __________.

Time.

The weekend is just waaaaay too short. Specially if you only have one day for it. Sunday. Like I do.

When I wake up on Sunday mornings, I feel so good because I’ll be able to putter around my little kitchen for a couple of hours. But, then, time seems to fly by when you’re relaxing or having fun. That’s what happens when I’m in the kitchen.

So, before I know it it’s Sunday afternoon and pretty soon it’ll get dark. Then, Monday morning comes. The bane of my existence.

Oh well.

We have to feed our tummy and our addictions sometimes. I just hope that I can find a way to turn my addictions lucrative.

White Chocolate Brownies

As I was lying in bed last night trying to create sleep, it suddenly dawned on me to look for a brownie recipe that uses white chocolate instead of the usual semi-sweet or unsweetened chocolates.

And, what do you know, there are several recipes online. So, this morning, I followed one of the recipes I found.

I followed it to the letter. But I did use baking paper instead of just greasing my pan.

Turned out really good. But I might try to also use brown sugar next time to make it hold better. It’s a bit crumbly.

I also noticed that the top cooked really fast despite the fact that I used only the bottom heater. Maybe I shouldn’t have used the top heater when I preheated the oven. Hmmm…

I think I am on a baking frenzy that I should come out of soon or else I will soon see the results of my baking in my hips.  But, I can’t stop it when everything I try is so good.

Well, almost everything.  I did botch up once or twice but who cares?!?! Anyone and everyone makes mistakes.

Last Thursday I decided to try making brownies and found this easy recipe online.

It did not come out as good as the one in the website where I got the recipe but I have a feeling it was good.  It’s only Sunday and the entire batch is gone.  Finished off by my father.

I am definitely making this again.

 

 

I Got to Work in the Kitchen

Question of the Day: What was peaceful about today?

I realized, in the past year, that being in the kitchen does a lot of things for me.

It relaxes me when I’m tired. It, in a way, helps me unwind. It lifts my spirits up when I’m down.

It gives me that sense peace I cannot find elsewhere.

And, since I started baking, i realize that my sanity looks forward to the weekend when I can finally spend a few hours in my little kitchen with my new best friend (my oven). Those few hours go a long way in keeping everything grey in the topmost floor.

However, I fear that all these chocolate and sugar will find their way to my hips. Haha. Oh well, everything has a price. And if gaining a few pounds will help keep me sane, then that’s a price I’d gladly pay.
