Brownie Sandwhich

I am not sure how to blog about this experiment. I took six different brownie cookie recipes and kinda came up with my own thing. Of course I didn't really record how I did it.... not a very smart move

But here are two recipes I think I mostly used

Baker's Royale - Brownie Cookie and Donna Hay Salted Caramel Brownie Sandwhich Cookies.
If you know me at all Salted Caramel is my absolute favorite thing! I was originally going to do just the Donna Hay's version but I didn't want to use sugar. I would say though her's is the closest.
I very very much wanted to make the Salted Caramel version. And so I did, but I also made Peanut Butter Icing for one. And I really wanted to make a coconut one. But the coconut didn't work I'll have to research that a little more. Plus I am not a fan of coconut so I am not sure why I want to do it. But it shall be done!!
AND just because this is my current favorite picture!! YEA!! Better outfit pictures tomorrow!

Mud and Sweat

I have been working for this company for 6 years. There has been allot of mud, sweat and tears. I finally got a shirt from them to reflect that!
I had to work on the 20th at the Sun and Salsa Festival! It is one of my favorite festivals! So before I headed to "work" Kevin and I walked through the park and snapped a few selfies! My first one up top got me perfectly but Kevin kinda missing.... ;)
The my camera decided to take random ground shots... not sure what it was thinking. But I like it
We bought mini donuts covered in sugar because no festival would be complete without some amazing treat! AND it's totally worth every bite of evil sugary carbs!
YYC Cycle demonstrated a class for us. It was a little odd... but it does make me wish I didn't hate those bikes so much! (I just realized I never posted as to why I hate cycling... I just posted it Bad. Things. Happen.)
It rained for two hours in the middle of my shift. Which sucked it drove all the business away and closed some booths beside us. But if you look really closely you see people dancing in the background. I wish I had gotten the name of the booth because for the entire two hours they danced in the rain and kept up a positive energy! (while everyone I was with moped around... me included)
Work wise the event was not a success. It was very frustrating for me. I hope future events go better. But in the end I did go across the street to a new cheese chop that opened up! More on that wonderful cheese later!!
Happy Tuesday!!

You know this weeks been utterly crazy!
Monday - my massage therapist called and cancelled rescheduling to tomorrow
Tuesday - Donna-Lynn had to cancel again due to some personal things going on (please send lots of positivity her way!),
Wednesday - I ate something bad and even though I was totally crazy at work my body completely reject the food and I went home to stick close to the ladies room. Thank goodness I did. It was not a fun night
Thursday - I was horribly ill the whole day. It was not fun. I really needed to work but instead I stayed close to the ladies room for the second day in a row.
Friday - I went to work we had a medical student event happening. By the end of it I was so exhausted. We were suppose to go out and see the stars (last weeks wishes #4) but exhaustion caught up and I slept. However it turned out to be a horribly cloudy night.
Saturday - was suppose to be the Bachlorette Party. I didn't go because I was still week and exhausted.
Sunday - my laptop called it quits and we spent allot of money... not good for the wallet but I like what we bought
This Weeks Wishes
Monday - met with Donna-Lynn and learn as much as I can regarding the Access Program
Tuesday - get my massage! I really need this! I think the reason I was so exhausted, sick and blah last week is because I didn't get my massage!!
Thursday - pack and prepare
Friday - have a fabulous day at work and head to Gurjit's place and drive up to Edmonton
Saturday - Water Park or GalaxyLand - which ever the boys want to do first
Sunday - the opposite of Sunday
Monday - drive home from Edmonton, unpack, relax, and maybe go see the Guardians of the Galaxy  (HOLIDAY!!!)

Fingers Crossed this next week is better!!

Blonde Brownies!

I'm cheating! I didn't actually make this. I gave directions to where the ingredients were :) that's also a very important job.

So THANK YOU Shams! For making AMMMAZING Brownies!!!

1 cup sifted all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/3 cup butter, melted
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C). Grease a 9x9-inch baking pan.
Measure 1 cup sifted flour. Add baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Sift again. Add 1/2 cup chopped nuts. Mix well and set aside.
Stir the brown sugar into the melted butter and mix well. Cool slightly.
Mix the beaten egg and vanilla into the brown sugar mixture. Add flour mixture, a little at a time, mixing just until combined.
Spread the batter into the prepared pan. Sprinkle 1/2 to 1 cup chocolate chips on top. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 20 to 25 minutes.
