You Had Me at "Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies"

Oh. My. Goodness.

I don't know which spurred my "had me at hello" moment, the picture or the title: Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies.

And it's all from mixes!

Here's a copy of the Betty Cocker recipe plus the ganache recipe from the Bakerella blog (who took the pics). Ganache is that semi-solid chocolate layer that often appears on top of baked goods — you know, the stuff you'd really just like to peel off and eat by itself? Well, it is waaaaaay too easy to make. I'm afraid to make it again, for fear that I'll end up trying to put it on everything I bake...or cook...

You can hate/thank me later.




I decided to do a "Project 365" photo thing, and it was fun taking pictures of some "everyday" ativities I might not have otherwise captured. Enjoy some random life moments from the past 4 months:

"toddler crack" (AKA bubbles) at library storytime

leaf collecting at Asbury in November
Where's the "m"? There! After I ruffled his feathers, I realized Caspian's rooster fro needed a trim.Caspian steels himself for his first trim by Mommy.
At least nothing started bleeding.
He lets me hold him when he first wakes up. (I'm 6 months preggers, here.)
