It’s the most awful time of the year. Nope, not talking about Thanksgiving, because I love Thanksgiving. Not talking about Christmas, I love Christmas. Not talking about fall, winter etc. I’m talking about shopping season.
I’m not against shopping as a whole, I just dread this time of year when everyone is shopping all at once, and sometimes being kinda dickish about it. That said, I’ll admit, I can get flustered over things that might seem trivial to others. Continue reading
Something wonderful has happened. You know, like when it’s a rainy day and there just happens to be a Law & Order SVU marathon. Or when your favorite running shoe, in your size, goes on sale. Or when you run out of mascara exactly when Clinique bonus time starts.
You are on the edge of your seat now wondering what happened.
S’more met brownie. THAT’S what happened. Mind. Blown. Continue reading
Friends are a basic need of human life. I would say third after air and water. Food is important too, but as long as you have good friends, they’ll have a granola bar.
Friends take five-day road trips with you. Friends make it okay to buy an entire DQ ice cream cake for no reason. Friends make you mix tapes cds. Friends heckle the green knight with you at Medieval Times. Friends let you eat their pizza crust. Friends don’t let you leave the bar with that dude on the motorcycle. Friends clean and bandage the road rash on your bum. Friends help you out of clothes you become trapped in, in a dressing room. Friends get naked with you in a bath tub, film it, and turn it into a school project.
Friends ask you to bake for their wedding because they know you’re kinda obsessed with baking and have a blog about it.
Friends accept your invitation to bake for a wedding even if it’s gluten-free and they’ve never baked anything gluten-free before. Continue reading
I enjoy history. I enjoy learning about the origins of things. There’s always good stories to be found in history.
I enjoy Slutty Brownies. I enjoy pondering the origin of them. And I think I may have stubbled upon the “missing link,” if you will, of the modern slutty brownie.
I imagine the origin of these was a church potluck with two nuns, Sister Mary and Sister Grace, unable to decide what to bring. Sister Grace wanted to make brownies, Sister Mary wanted to make rice krispie treats. They both quabled about it, as nuns will do, and started going on their own way, baking their own thing.

After two weeks of Paleo recipes, I thought I’d freak you all out by posting something vegan. What can I say, I like to keep people on their toes.
I find it crazy that the vegan chocolate chip cookie recipe I posted months ago has so far been the most popular recipe on my blog. I guess vegans are in need of good recipes. These brownies more than qualify. They are decadent in every sense of the word. They don’t require anything super fancy (unless you don’t stock flax seed and what kind of crazy person doesn’t have flax seed in their pantry) and there’s no way you’d know they were *gasp* vegan.
