I couldn't sleep last night. My mind was filled with cupcakes and brownies and cookies that I plan to bake. I tossed and turned all night. Hubby kept asking me what's wrong, poor thing, he wasn't able to sleep as well. Finally around 3:00a.m. exhausted from my day dreaming I finally closed my eyes and drifted off to my sugary dreams.
Sheesh. What's wrong with me?! When I finally woke up, I immediately looked at the inventory in my pantry. I had enough ingredients for cupcakes, brownies and crinkles. We just had cupcakes last weekend so brownies and crinkles were in order.
I made just one batch of each. I was pretty happy with how the brownies turned out. They were very moist and chocolatey. I got the recipe from Alton Brown. I just added some chopped walnuts to the batter.
The crinkles need a bit of work. They're not as moist or as dark as I hoped they would be but they taste great.
I hope that my adventure in the kitchen today will quell my desire to bake again at least for the next day or two. My mom and my in-laws are already neck deep in my baked goodies.
Mom kept complaining that she gained one pound from eating my cupcakes and yet she keeps asking for more. My mother in-law is borderline diabetic yet she can't keep her hands off the cookies.
Oh my, I am the ruin of these women!
