[72/365] seeing double

Sister Bears and I got our parents and iPad! At the same time, since Sister Bear One was going to buy herself one we ended up getting her a very very early birthday present. We were going to get her one for her birthday in October anyway... it's just a few months early...

Every time I bring these to a dinner party, they're a hit. "Heavenly", "Scrumptious", "ooooo just one more..." are just a few reactions I get.

1 Family Size Box Mix Of Brownies And The Ingredients To Make The Brownies 
9-15 Graham Crackers (depends on the size of your crackers)
12 ounces Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips (Or More!)
3 cups Mini Marshmallows
1 box Yellow Cake Mix
1 Egg
1 Stick Buttersoftened
1/4 cup Sweetened Condensed Milk

directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9 by 13in pan with parchment paper or aluminum foil that has been generously coated with cooking spray. Make sure your lining goes all the way around the pan.

Mix up your brownie mix according to the box directions and pour it into the pan.

Cover the brownies with the graham crackers. You want to fit as many of the graham crackers on there as you can.

Pour the chocolate chips onto the graham crackers and then add the mini marshmallows.

In a large mixing bowl, mix together the box of yellow cake mix, egg, and stick of softened butter. Use your hand to mix the dough all together.

Top the marshmallows with the dough. I found the best way to do this is to take some in your hand, press it so it’s flat, and place it on top of the marshmallows. Repeat this until all the marshmallows are covered (it does not have to be perfect) and then drizzle on the cup of sweetened condensed milk.

Bake it in the oven for 18-22 minutes. The top layer should be a golden brown

[70/365] yummy in my tummy

IMG_4657RyBread and I made East Indian food for dinner. The menu included palak panner, butter chicken, and channa masala. It's kind of cheating to make it with these spice packets, but I have never had any luck making it from scratch.

What are these you ask? Stay tuned!

[67/365] indulge

I love sushi... especially at Sushi Delight. The couple that run it seem so grateful for you to come and they make such tasty sushi!
LaMak and I ended up going to Timmy's after our lunch date. I don't normally go to Tim Hortons because I prefer Starbucks by far, but I wanted to rrrroll up the rim. Of course I didn't win anything though.
