Brownies & Bars

Cranberry Bliss Bars I love to bake. And if I’ve been baking, then you should know that it’s because of one of these 5 reasons: 1. I’ve developed or discovered a recipe that I have to try ASAP. 2. It’s raining 3. I’m falling off the diet wagon 4.
Baklava is yummy…but it’s yummiest when it’s homemade. And it doesn’t have to be my home that makes it. It can be anyone’s home. I just think homemade baklava tends to have a little more flavor…a little more freshness…a little more somethin’ somethin’ than a lot of the baklava you buy. Not that I buy a lot of baklava in Pawhuska, Oklahoma.
Now I don't want to over sell this, so I'm going to be conservative and simply say, that these are... The Best Brownies In The WORLD. I know, big statement. They're called Slutty Brownies because they're oh so easy, and more than a little bit filthy. They're best served warm from the oven, with good quality vanilla ice cream (devastatingly I didn't have any in the freezer this time, so I guess I'll just have to make them again).
I’ve tried lots of brownie recipes: Boxes, scratch, frosted, plain, nuts, chips, fudge … Each of them has something to like, but depending on my mood I might want a change of pace. Not any more. My wife found this recipe, and it’s perfect. I’m done looking.
So, after being gone all last week, this has been catch up on the house week. Mostly laundry actually. Man, who knew that a weeks worth of laundry from 5 people could be so daunting. Yikes!!
I receive a lot of questions about me and my blog. I thought it would be fun to collectively gather some questions I have been asked so you can get to know me better and maybe find some of the stuff useful for you. Q: What made you start this blog? A: I have always loved to cook/bake and came from a mom who is an AMAZING cook. People were always asking for both mine and my mom's recipes, and instead of always emailing them out, I decided to start storing them on a blog so they were accessible to all my friends and family. Q: Where did you come up with the name "Chef in Training"?
Join us on Facebook for our latest recipes! I am eternally grateful to Cookies and Cups for creating this amazing recipe! Ever since Camille introduced me to her fabulous Cake Batter Blondies , I have been blondie crazy (Literally, crazy. To the point where I dream about them!). These were simple and soooooo good!
I love the look of the original Samoas Girl Scout Cookies, but making them from scratch can be a little bit time consuming. This is largely because the dough must be rolled out, cut out and then each of the cookies has to be handled individually for topping. The results are well worth it, in my opinion, but we don’t always have time to make a labor-intensive recipe – no matter how bad a craving for Girl Scout cookies gets. Bar cookies are the perfect solution.

This is the part of winter I hate the most, the wasteland between late February and the end of March where spring seems so close and so far away. Each sunny day feels like hope, only to be followed by another 6-inches of snow. It can be discouraging. I think at times like this we should all be grateful for citrus—a little orange or lemon to brighten the day. The blood orange tart did wonders to lift my spirits and I hoped the remedy would continue to work with these classic lemon bars that Faith Durand made over at The Kitchn .

There was a pretty insane storm in New York last night! When I was at the gym, the news was on and they were telling people to stay away from windows, as severe hail was expected. I didn’t see any of that, but when I finally left the subway to walk to my apartment, rain droplets the size of what seemed like golf balls were coming down, and fast! I sprinted home, and for the rest of the night, Kramer and I could barely keep our eyes away from the spectacular lightning that was going on outside. It felt like a rave or something – I haven’t seen lightning like that in a long time.
Homemade Samoas. Yes, it’s true. And they’re delicious. They taste very close to if not exactly like the Girl Scout cookies! I was amazed and flabbergasted.
We’re watching our friend’s cat right now, and it’s a lot of fun. Kramer and I want to get a pet so badly, but I just don’t think that I have the time, energy, or, frankly, money, to take care of an animal the way I would like to. For now, though, it’s just fun to pretend to have a pet for a week. His name is Eddie and he’s pretty funny .
