Here's a story for ya'. I set these lovely brownies up and photographed them. They (pictures, not brownies) turned out lousy. A dream they were not (again, pictures, not brownies). After photographing, I ate said lousy picture brownie. Downloaded the pictures, realized they were not-a-dream-brownies-photos and promptly ran to the kitchen to make sure there were some left.
There was. Whew.
So, the next day, I set up another brownie and did a re-shoot (fancy photographer lingo=took more pictures). Ate another, better photographed brownie. Downloaded and was happy (and a bit sad..no need to eat another) they were much better photos.
OK, it's not very exciting story. But, what can you do? I'm a food blogging stay at home mom, not, a Kardashian. :)
I am trying hard to resist going into the kitchen and eating another one. They are indeed, a dream. Chocolate brownie, peanut butter-cream cheese filling, more chocolate, then, topped off with whipped cream and caramel.
Wow..try these! Happiness will fill your life immediately.
