Homemade Double Chocolate Brownies

I love a good, quick dessert. I am not above used box cake or brownie mixes. However, this recipe is an easy alternative to using a box mix.


These brownies are chewy, soft and yummy!

Homemade Double Chocolate Brownies

Ingredients:
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup plus 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon + 1/8 teaspoon baking powder 
1/4 teaspoon + 1/8 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 eggs, room temperature 
1 Hershey bar or your favorite chocolate bar

Directions:
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (350 if you are using a metal pant). Spray your 8 x 8 pan with cooking spray, line with parchment paper, and spray with non-stick cooking spray again.

In a medium sized bowl, whisk together your dry ingredients. Mix the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.

In another bowl, using an electric hand mixer, beat together oil, sugar, and vanilla until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, then beat until well blended. Once your eggs are incorporated, gradually stir in dry ingredients, until completely combined. 

Pour the batter evenly into prepared pan. Chop the chocolate bar into small pieces and sprinkle over the top.

Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with a few moist crumbs. DO NOT OVER BAKE!!! Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely before cutting into squares.


I hope you enjoy a batch of brownies!

Until next time,

Kara

Date Night Jar

The Hubby and I have been together 8 years. The one thing we have consistently argued over for those 8 years is the question, "What do you want to do?"

I consider us to both be intelligent adults, but when that question comes out of the other persons mouth its like we become fools and have no thoughts.

Our common answer is "I don't know" or "I don't care". 

Well I found something to fix that problem. Our date night jar!


I saw the idea on Pinterest (where all ideas live of course) and decided it was an inexpensive, crafty solution to our problem.

All you need are Popsicle sticks, markers, a jar, and your list of activities you want to use.

Both the Hubby and I brainstormed ideas in the categories of free dates, cheap dates, more expensive dates, and plan ahead dates.

Here is our example list:



Making the list was the hardest part. There are a lot of online links for date ideas. Just cater your list to your tastes and preferences!

Songs I am Obsessed With Right Now

Maybe I am the only person, but when I hear a song I like on the radio I kind of get obsessed with it. I just want it to come on all the time! Or I go home and YouTube it over and over!

Here are a few of the songs I love right now!

This song by the Chainsmokers is awesome. It has such a great beat and it's always on the radio right now!



Dan and Shay are a great country duo, but From the Ground Up is such a beautiful song. I absolutely love it.

Florida Georgia Line has never put out a bad song. It took me a few times for me to get into this one, but I really like the song. It's another I love to sing when it comes across the radio (which is quite a bit).

I hope you enjoy your day! 

Until next time,

Kara

Mixed Feelings for Sure...

I am not one to post much about politic things. I think it's best just to keep my mouth shut about how I feel about politics, because it just starts arguments between friends.

Well Donald Trump will be our 45th president. I have so many mixed emotions about this...

I am scared for the possibilities that he brings with no experience. I am scared that the people who got out and voted were fueled by hate, not change. That they were scared because they are getting left behind by technology, scared because people with education are bypassing them for more opportunities, that social norms are changing and it's not acceptable to them.

I am scared that people think it's okay for Donald to have mocked a disabled reporter, to have said demeaning things about women and it be okay, to be openly hateful to people of other cultures and that being considered American pride.

I want a world for my daughter to be kind, accepting, understanding. We are not all the same, we have different opportu…
