I just got it today, and I'm aching to try something out, but ever since starting with this gym business, I feel like baking sweets is the absolute last thing I should be doing. So, perhaps I'll try something tomorrow and then take it to Jaime's work for a treat! That's always a good compromise.
So, on with the awesome recipes I'm going to try. One of the most appealing images in the book is that of the Frosted Brownies. If you know me, you know that I love brownies and make them for every occasion. These frosted brownies look totally rustic, gooey, chocolaty, and best of all, slathered with chocolate cream cheese frosting that looks like Mom's buttercream on steroids.
I NEED THEM.
Next, some delicious looking double chocolate cookies. You know, the ones that have a crinkly looking top? These ones crinkle, but they don't have powdered sugar (not that I don't love that...) on top. Anywho, they look awesome. Is anyone else craving pictures here? I am, and I have the book right in front of me.
Another thing that I want to try are the Black Bottom Cupcakes. They have dark chocolate cake and cheesecake baked together! And chocolate chips! And then you frost them! Oy!
In the non-chocolate realm, they have a delectable looking lemon meringue pie. I have always liked lemon meringue pie, but no one else in my family did, so I've never tried it. I think I must. I made my first pie with a meringue last summer and it was a success. Can that success be repeated? I think so.
So that's the run-down. I want to make everything in the book, but I'll save you the headache of reading my terrible descriptions. Check out the book online or borrow it from me. I never feel like I get enough use out of them.
