Well it certainly has been some time since I sat down to do some writing. I have been busy playing scramble on the ipad and reading a book (if you can actually picture that), those are in addition to the things life generally brings like dinner, laundry and kids activities.
I haven't gotten away from baking and crafting, as those are things that I do love to do. So one night I was headed to my friend Barb's for a night of card making, I didn't want to go empty handed so I broke out my new Pioneer Woman cookbook. I flipped through the pages looking for just the right dessert to bring and what did I see but "Knock You Naked" Brownies. If the name wasn't catchy enough I don't know what would be. A quick view of the recipe and I was off to the supermarket for a bag of caramels.
So I get home and I start unwrapping caramels to get them in my new double boiler, I was itching to use that thing. The for the can of evaporated milk...sh--! I only had sweetened condensed milk in the house, but I was not going back to the supermarket, I can improvise. I used the sweetened condensed milk, but I also added a splash of regular milk as sweetened condensed milk is thicker than the evaporated.
The recipe also called for a 9X9 baking pan, which I didn't have. I did have a 8X8 baker so that was going to have to do.
