I’ve had this thing on my mind lately.
It’s almost all I can think about…
It’s like an obsession!
Not a day goes by without me getting ideas, and lots of them!
I’m talking cakes, crumbles, cookies, bars, chocolates, cheesecake pops, BROWNIES! All of them super healthy, of course!
What? Were you expecting something else?
Baking is what it’s called. And I’ve been in the mood for nothing but that lately.
Perhaps I have to blame this on the colder weather? I have to admit that I do find a lot of comfort in baking.
Or perhaps it’s just the Holiday spirit that’s already getting to me…
Whatever it is, I don’t think you guys are gonna mind, are you? I’m getting tons of
great awesome dessert recipe ideas.
It all started with my Cookie Dough Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Bars. Those were HEAVENLY, to say the least.
Them came these Lord Have Mercy On Me Sweet Potato Brownies. …
Oh yum! Need I say more?
These were shortly followed by a Beet and Chocolate Bundt Cake, which I am still enjoying as I type these words. Hmfpt. Enjoying would be a serious understatement!
The plan for this week-end is to whip up another Bundt Cake, but a Spicy Cinnamon Apple and Pumpkin this time.
I actually have an entire list of desserts that I
want can’t wait to try, so I get the feeling that you will be getting at least one recipe per week for the next few months.
Hey, feel free to contact me with complaints!
Back to the brownies… I’m sure you want to know about them. At least a little bit.
Well, they came out PERFECT in every way.
If I was to make them again, I wouldn’t change a single thing. (except for maybe turn off the darn tungsten light that I had inadvertently left on right above my brownies when I photographed them…)
Their texture was nice and dense, super sticky and chewy, just the way I like ‘em. I don’t normally do walnuts in brownies, but I thought they brought a really interesting little “creamy crunch” to this batch and I absolutely do not regret throwing them in.
The flavor was also superb and it only got better with every passing day. Don’t overdo that, though… A few days in the fridge and they were just PERFECT! Sweet, but not overly so. Very intense and chocolaty but not bitter in the least. Just sweet and smooth, all the way.
As for the avocado and sweet potato? Erm… was that really in there?
I swear, no one will ever be able to tell.
