My husband and I have been together in some way (dating or married) for going on 8 years now. You’d think that would be enough time to get to know a person, right? Wrong! I had just finished baking this batch of Peanut Butter & Nutella Brownies. “Brownies are my favorite! No way! Anyway, back to the brownies. After trying another brownie the following day, I decided they really are a bit sweet for my taste. The whole pan was devoured in less than a week.

Recipes by Irina Kupenski Когато преди 5 години с Диляна се преместихме да живеем в София, братовчедка ми, която по това време ни беше и съседка, ми каза нещо много вярно, на което не обърнах особено внимание. Каза ми: “Студентските години са едни от най-хубавите в живота на човек, но минават толкова неусетно, че докато се обърнеш и вече си на 30″.

Но друга ми беше мисълта. Този път имах пълната свобода да избирам не само вкуса на тортата, но и вида. Смятам първия си опит за успешен, но има някои неща, които определено бих променила и ще ги посоча тук, защото е добре да ги имате предвид ако решите да опитате рецептата.

You fed a baby chili? Back to the Cutting Board Greedy Gourmand Luna Cafe Infographic of the Day: How the Global Food Market Starves the P To understand the complexities of the international food market--and how traders in Chicago can cause Africans to starve--you could get a ph.D. in economics, or read a 400-page report from the World Bank. Or you watch this superb nine minute video, directed by Denis van Waerebeke. Though ostensibly created for a science show in Paris for 12 year olds, it's actually probably waaaay over a kid's head. The video begins with a basic question: How is it that the first world has an oversupply of food, while 1 in 7 in the world go malnourished? That can have disastrous effects. The solutions will involve everyone, the world over. Still hungry for more infographics videos? [Via Infosthetics]
