SoNo Brownies and other updates!

For those of you that don't know, its one month til my 23rd birthday! I'm strangely excited because frankly, I can't wait for Fall!
My absolute favorite season of the year, hands down! I'm thinking of all the warm, sweet and savory pies, tarts, and pastries (oh and fresh baked bread!) that I can make and eat :) Whoo hoo!

You know I've been spending so much time at the library lately (I know total nerd status right?) and I found some pretty amazing pastry, baking, cooking books which inspire me oh so much! I wish I could make everything in those books or try out all the different techniques. I'm just itching to be back in the Kitchen with my handy mixer. But I can't because my funds of $ are slowing diminishing. Disgusting, I know. So all I can do is dream for now...

Finding a job, any job sucks right now. All I know is to keep applying and interviewing, and repeat the process until necessary. That's all I can say. Not inspiring, but if you keep going you will always have hope of reaching your goal. So take out your inspiring pictures, quotes, and music and go for it!

So back to these SoNo Brownies! Super Delicious, ate half of the batch myself (Give me some amazing brownies and cookies and I will be fat but happy!)

I'm going to post the recipe below, but you should also check out the delicious cooking book as well. It should be at your local library (except at my library, because i have it for now :)

SoNo Brownies: Makes 16 Brownies give or take.

1/2 cup of all-purpose flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup of unsalted room temp. butter
1 cup of white granulated sugar
1 tablespoon light corn syrup
2 large eggs, room temp.
1 tablespoon of vanilla
1 cup of semisweet chocolate chips (I used a mixture of chocolate chunks and chips from Ghiradelli)

Preheat the oven to 350 Degrees F. Coat an 8 inch square baking dish with cooking spray/butter. Mix the flour, cocoa powder, salt, and baking powder in a small bowl. Set Aside. With a saucepan, melt butter completely over low heat. Then off the heat add your white sugar and corn syrup. Whisk to combine. Then add one egg at a time, whisking well after each addition. Add the vanilla. Combine this mixture with your dry ingredients. Add your chocolate chips and chunks (or nuts if you wish). Pour batter into your pan and bake for 30 minutes. Let it cool completely and eat it straight out of the pan if you desire! :)

Sorry no pictures! I absolutely suck at taking pictures! haha

Now I must pack my bags and head to...Las Vegas with the fam. Cheers!

Have a great weekend everyone!
