Sweet & Salty Brownies

Read Article →

Papers are done, only one week of school left, and exams are far away enough that I can ignore them for now. Since I've finished my papers, I've kind of gone into vacation mode... My birthday, which was wonderful, didn't help matters, either, because I spent half a week eating at nice restaurants and getting gifts, one of which was an ice cream maker. Just so everyone knows, ice cream is going to start appearing on this blog soon. 


But, before I bust out the frozen treats, we've got these brownies. These brownies are the definition of decadence. Dark chocolate and salted caramel all wrapped up in one delicious, rich, amazing square. I've made these brownies about ten times now and I almost don't need to look at the recipe book any more.

I often find myself thinking about all the things I would do if I didn't have to sleep.


Is that weird? Am I the only one who does that? I can't be, I bet everyone thinks about it but no one says anything. And if you honestly don't, now you will. 


As much as I love sleep, I'd really like to not have to sleep. So much more time to do things! I would definitely bake more. But I'd probably do things that I don't normally have lots of time for, like practicing guitar. My boyfriend gave me a super nice guitar for Christmas last year and I've learned a total of one song... I know bits of other songs, like the cute song from the Fellowship of the Ring and a basic version of the beginning of Stay or Leave by Dave Matthews. I've tried to learn a lot of songs, but it takes lots of time to completely get a song down. With school, work, and baking taking up most of my time, I don't always want to play guitar on my down-time. Sometimes I just want to sit on my couch and cuddle with my cat.

"Don't underestimate the value of doing nothing, of just going along, listening to all the things you can't hear, and not bothering."- Winnie the Pooh

Are you stressed today? I sure was.

Everyone gets stressed once in a while. Work is a big stress causer for most people. University and school, too. Trying to achieve a goal but you're not quite getting it right. Feeling like you have too many things to do in one day. Being hungry but not having the time to go get groceries so you eat porridge for the 3rd meal in a row. Not being able to operate a camping can opener (or maybe that's was just me).




You feel the anger storm growing in your mind. Everything seems to be against you and you just want the world to give you a few minutes to breathe! Nothing is going the way you want it. The anger storm is going full blast now. Eventually, you give up, wallow in your self-pity, and act the victim. At least, that tends to be my cycle of rage. It doesn't always get to the last bit, sometimes I can intercept it before it gets to be too much. The one thing that I do to de-stress that will almost always work? 

Baking.
