Let’s start this off by me introducing myself, shall we?
Hi, my name is Heather, and I am an emotional baker. And eater, for that matter.
So when I have a bit of a mildish breakdown that results in me crying in front of my husband & blubbering out kindergarten phrases regarding our move such as, “But what if nobody there liiiikes me???????????????” (Yes, I said that. Yes, I am 24 years old) – after I wipe the mascara off my ankles and yank up what’s left of my ratty ol’ big girl panties – I am naturally drawn to the kitchen to make something sweet and soul satisfying. I love the process of baking, the mixing of ingredients and the way they swirl together in the bowl… I just really really love it. Apparently I also really really love the process of eating what I bake. Joy 🙂
Which is why I am sitting here, with these bad boys in the oven, with 24 minutes baking time left and 14 minutes left until Bible Study starts. You do the math. And yes, I am still planning on going to Bible Study. They will just have to be patient and understanding of my late arrival (when is this not the case with me? come on, self). Ugh, and what is it with me and Bible Studies? I swear to you, I was not trying to skip by making these brownies. My emotions overtook me, I saw the recipe, knew I had just enough butter, and BAM.
What’s a girl to do?
