Guess that eatin' right stuff didn't last

Tonight I steamed some potstickers made of the flesh of the mighty tofu beast, and ate some kimchi'ed Korean vegetables. I followed it up with some yogurt for desert.

All of which is to no avail, because cooling on top of my stove is a pan of fresh-backed chocolate fudge brownies, which I topped with some 60% cacao chocolate chips as decoration.

Sigh. First there was the cheesy crackers (well, sorta-crackers anyhow), now this? I need to start baking things a bit more healthy than this!

Update: Chocolate overdose. OMG. Is it possible to have a mouth orgasm? These things are *soooo* rich and, well, chocolaty...

  1. Sounds like your basic brownie recipe -- chocolate and more chocolate topped with chocolate -- is similar to mine. I make dark chocolate brownies with semisweet chocolate chips added to the mix; the result is so rich and chocolaty that I can barely eat it, and even Husband, world-class chocoholic that he is, agrees that they're "chocolate enough".

  2. Try bread baking. It's not difficult and you end up with...fresh bread!

    Lots of different kinds of bread too -- sourdough, rye, focaccia, pizza. Yummy stuff.

  3. Yah, bread is definitely on my ToDo list. Not up to sourdough -- that requires thinking too far ahead for me. I did purchase some of the "instant" yeast when I was on the bakery aisle a few weeks ago though with the thought of making some bread -- I have some whole wheat flour I need to finish up before it goes bad (whole wheat flour doesn't last as long because of the oils from the wheat germ going rancit).
