It seems that when I'm home on Saturdays, I like to cook. This week was no exception.
In fact, I was like a little test kitchen this past weekend; trying out two different batches of brownies, to see which ones I liked.
I recently saw a recipe that called for yogurt in place of the oil, so I thought I would try it to see if I could make the brownies a bit more Weight Watcher's friendly. The only problem was that I only had low fat yogurt and not the Greek yogurt it called for. But, I made a batch and they came out horrible! It was like eating a glob of mud.
So, I threw them out and reverted back to an old recipe I've had for years and finally...a good brownie...fat and all!
While the brownies were baking, I decided to put a few ready-made mixes together, to have on hand for next time. This is one of my favorite things to do! I used to make all kinds of mixes on Saturdays and have them in the freezer or pantry until I needed them.
This is so much easier to do, once you have the ingredients out, instead of taking time to pull out all the stuff, every single time. Plus, if you package them in a cute bag, with a tag, they make great gifts or the perfect addition to a gift basket.
The brownies came out thick and soft, but firm enough that they don't crumble. They were perfect!
Oh my, I'm hungry for a brownie now. Those look really good. That's a great idea having the mixes prepped and ready for the next time or for gift giving.ReplyDelete
