Well, I have decide to lose some baby weight now that my son is almost eight months old. Preparing yourself to do shed some pounds really takes a lot when you love food as much as I do. I am proud to say I have stuck to it for almost two weeks and still managed to bake some delicious brownies. Well, I would call them blondies, but the recipe says brownies.
My husband has really put a hurting on them. I was afraid to even take a bite considering my self-control isn’t the best right now. I think I could take down an entire batch if I let myself. I did taste the batter before I baked them. It was delicious. My husband, who is the expert taste tester let me know they were very good and rich. They definitely fit the words “ooey gooey.”
Peanut Butter Brownies
Gooseberry Patch: sweet and Simple
1 c. creamy peanut butter
1/2 c. butter
2 c. brown sugar, packed
1 t. vanilla
1 c. all-purpose flour
1/2 t. salt
Mix peanut butter and butter together; add brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Mix until light and fluffy. Mix in the flour and salt. Spread into a greased 13″x9″ baking pan. Bake at 350 for 30 to 35 minutes. Cool in pan.
I add about 1 cup of nestle semi-sweet chunks. Turns out they went really well with the brownies.
Thank you Gooseberry Cookbook for the great recipe.
Tragic news. My one and only mixer died the other night. Poor little hand mixer. I would like to say I could go out and buy a yummy Kitchenaid mixer, but looks like I’ll be making a trip to Walmart for a cheapo. I am definitely slowly saving up for one and putting in for every giveaway possible.
I insisted on my husband picking me up some malted milk the other night so I could bake with it. I went to use the recipe I had found and I’m just not thrilled with how it looks. I’m browsing around to see what I can put it in. I might even whip together a little recipe of my own for this. I know one thing, I better put something together for all the nagging I did to get the stuff.
I also have had a craving for some fresh bread. I have a recipe for amish bread, but I think I might try something new. I’ll definitely have to decide what to all make and get the move on it before the day passes me by.
So, I’m recovering from the holidays. I tried to blog earlier, but my son, Lucian, wasn’t allowing that. He is exactly seven months old today and a little spit fire! I also discovered his first tooth broke through today!
Anyhow, back on to baking I was thinking about making some chocolate chip cookies today. That is if I can manage to all my dishes done. I think I might browse pinterest.com to see if I can find a new recipe to try, possibly something unique. I’ll update later if and when I find the perfect recipe and get some pictures up to show them. Though, I kind of feel guilty for making some and not sharing them with my father. He’s only been asking my mother for months to make him some. Poor dad 😦
