Winter Baking

IMG_6640

This is what it looks like out our window this morning. 50km/h winds, and the snow is blowing around in particles of ice so fine it just sandblasts the skin right off of your face.  So I’m spending this day off inside! On the internet! I did some baking a few days ago and don’t really feel like typing much description but I wanted to put the pictures on here.

This is the butter we have been buying, some of the tastiest I’ve ever had. I would be lying if I didn’t say CB and I just cut off slices and ate it like cheese at first….

IMG_6465When spending the day baking you must first prep for success. This includes making a very strong drink.

And mood music.

And butter. Lots of butter. Mmmmm… butter. Is there anything nicer than butter melting away in a pot?

My brownie recipe. Instead of instructions my recipes just have a collection of lines and arrows. It works for me. Not so much for anybody else. I also improvised adding whiskey and sriracha.

I put the recipe and proper instructions up on Instructables if anyone is interested. Here’s the link: Lazy Degenerate Brownies

My handy dandy NZ spatula!

This is either my moms, or my nans, but either way this thing is my saviour. It apparently is as smart as a spatula as well! I miss my kitchen aid mixer, but it went to a good home and is probably making matzo balls as we speak! Also its actually nicer and more relaxing making bread and things by hand. MUSCLES!

CB always requests these the same. Salty, chewy and burnt on the bottom, just like mom made!
