One of the biggest downfalls of being a Pinterest addict is seeing all the fabulous ideas that other individuals so helpfully and conveniently post for your viewing pleasure.
Between the clothes, food, decorating tips, nail polish colors, hair styles… I want to do and try it all.
It’s complete madness I tell you!
It’s no wonder that I have fallen behind in my blogging….I didn’t realize how long it had been since I’d posted a recipe here until Katrina called me out on it two days ago. I actually made these brownies last week, but had them safely stashed in the freezer …. for my own good, of course.
And while I’ve seen several variations of them floating around between Pinterest, Serious Eats and Google Reader, I decided to go with a recipe that I found on Anna’s site, mostly because she doesn’t utilize boxed mixes like many of the other recipes do. Not that there’s anything wrong with using mixes, I just prefer to not to.
My opinion on these?
Make them soon.
Whichever comes first.
You won’t regret it.
