January 10, 2012. That is the date today people, I kid you not. And the day is drawing to a close so technically it’s closer to January 11th.
So what does this actually mean? Well Christmas is over, New Years is covered too and everyone has gone back to their normal, boring, everyday lives. You may have even made a resolution or two. But really, what’s the point? If you are not committed to something the other 11 months and 30 days of the year, what is going to make January 1st such a turning point? My theory is that if we all make resolutions every minute of every hour of every day, we may actually have a shot at accomplishing them. Life is a constant resolution to aim higher, do better and be happier.
With that said, now it is time for me to provide some extensive diet sabotage. Sorry to all of you guys out there munching on your carrot sticks and rice cakes, I can’t resist sharing the recipe for what are probably the best brownies I have ever made in my entire life. Yah I know, I haven’t been alive that long…but still!
I made them during the holidays for my chocoholic guests (not fully realizing just what chocoholics they were) and the entire batch was literally devoured in less than 10 minutes between only 2 people. Had I known this, I probably would have doubled the recipe. I even had someone get on their knees and bow down, thanking me for making these. I’m still not sure I know what to say. You’re welcome??? I can’t take all the credit though. I would still be living in mediocre brownie land if it weren’t for Joy the Baker.
BEST BROWNIES EVER.
Yes, I just said that. In fact I will say (type) it again.
Now go make some brownies my peeps!
