Brownie and cheesecake batter are swirled together to make a festive and impressive dessert . Indianapolis, along with many other states in the Midwest, is coping with a huge ice storm that is supposed to cover us in over an inch of ice. Unfortunately the worst of the storm is supposed to come tonight.
Breakfast is my favorite meal. I like to drink iced coffee and watch the cream climb its way down the chunky ice cubes in a dazy before the caffeine hits. I like to order bacon with whatever I’m eating. I like eating potatoes with ketchup.
Muffins, please accept our apologies in advance. We did something bad. You're going to hate us.
Since one half of the blue-eyed baking squad is currently blogging from waaaay across the pond in London, we figured we'd bake you lovely duckies a British treat. Shortbread. Millionaire's shortbread (ooooh aaaah). Don't get too excited. There's no money in this crumbly deliciousness.
