Coffee date – bad baking and chocolate.

20130426_091344How are you today? What’s new? What was the best part of your week so far?

I’m sure I don’t have to tell you, but it’s Friday! Would you care to join me for a morning (or afternoon) beverage?

Before you get excited, I’m not wearing the flamingo scarf above for real today. I wish I was though. I’m finding my outfit, nails and hair all very uninspired today and I’m a little sad about it. I realize there are much bigger things to be sad about, but I haven’t finished my Kahlua coffee yet so cut me some slack.

Can I tell you that last night was a huge baking fail? Half a batch ended up on the floor, half was so weird and flat and half burned that I had to scrape them out of the cupcake pans. I thought about remaking them, but at that point I was ready to just cry because it wasn’t going right, I was running out of ingredients and I was quite tired.

Sometimes life doesn’t go how I’d like. Who knew? /sarcasm

I said a bunch of naughty words, threw in the towel and said to hell with trying to make the cupcakes. I had enough ingredients left for a batch of Mehmere’s Brownies so they were going to have to be good enough for my work crew’s potluck lunch. I added toffee chips and cashews though, they’re so good that way.

I’ve probably asked before, but I forget what you said, what’s your favorite brownie? I’m partial to the toffee cashew, but peanut butter is quite a Court pleaser as well. What do you like to have with them?

Speaking of treats, I was at Target yesterday to pick up some treats for Daddy-O’s Father’s Day present and I found a bag of Dove Sea Salted Caramel Dark Chocolate. They’re awesome. Not quite as good as the Ghiradelli ones, but still pretty awesome. Yes, Godiva still wins this category, but they’re harder to find in a price range I’m willing to pay.

Wow. An entire paragraph about chocolate. Thanks Whoremones, I don’t even really like the stuff that much! Unless it has peanut butter then all bets are off. Do you have a food you only like sometimes?

I have to run now, it was very nice chatting! Have a super fun weekend.

Don’t forget! Three Questions and a Prize is happening until I finish what I need to do tonight!

***None of the above chocolate companies paid me in any way for mention. I did that all by my self.***

About Court

I spend a lot of time on the pool deck and making treats in my kitchen amongst other things.

    It must have been in the air last night. I used some bad words too but not because of baking, but because life is sometimes so unfair. As for my favorite brownie: chocolate chip with an ice cold glass of milk 🙂 Have I had Mehmare’s brownies ? They sound familiar

      sorry you had a bad night, and hoping today was better. maybe an ice cold glass of milk and a chocolate chip brownie could help turn it around? 🙂 you made me salivate with the mention of milk and brownies.

    What did you try to make? And honey, I use bad words all the time. Last night especially, when I turned on my washer and water started flowing out of the bottom. This is why I rent. Favorite brownies, I am a traditionalist. I like chewy brownies with nothing in them. No chocolate chips, no nuts. I wouldn’t say no to a swirl of some sort, but for the most part, give me a plain brownie.

    any brownies. and any blondies, for that matter. basically anything that is chewy and has some sort of chocolate element (the more the better). i HATE when baked goods CLAIM to be brownies, but are actually cake made to look like a brownie. that bums me out, man.

Have something to add?
