I didn’t “get” baking for a long time. Truth be told was that I really didn’t have a REASON to bake. In my opinion, baking costs “extra” money (I see it as a novelty). Baking is, well, fatty. And it’s really hard to bake something for just myself and not eat all 5,000 calories of it in a matter of days.
Well, the tides have turned though! I went to a brunch potluck meetup in a park a few weeks ago and decided that instead of buying something, I was going to bake. I’ve baked successfully in the past (I made a pretty awesome lemon poppy seed cake with glaze for a friend’s birthday last year…AND enjoyed doing so), but never really saw the value until I made something for the brunch potluck. This blondie/cookie creation wasn’t what I made, but I did catch the baking bug and made this when my boyfriend went on a business trip and I was left to my own deVICEs (ha. ha.).
This was pre-blog, so I don’t have too many pictures, but this recipe is BANGIN! It’s really simple and if you put it in a large enough pan, it turns out more like a thick cookie. This also happens if you cook it so it’s a little moist and not completely cooked through. It’s so good I made it again last week…and forgot to take pictures. Kudos to Inside BruCrew Life for this M&M Blonde Brownies recipe.
