Today I am grateful. I'm just grateful.
My children are healthy and they are really great kids...though I may be a little biased.
My husband and I are healthy. We are happy.
We have a safe and comfy home.
I have nice friends and a loving family.
My children have wonderful teachers.
I'm just taking a moment away from a bout of worry and heartbreak. Having a child with ADHD has brought many interesting challenges into our lives. Some of those challenges are fairly easy to overcome, some of them are a little more difficult to walk through with my baby. This too shall pass. I believe that.
So, today I am grateful. I have a smile on my face and happiness in my heart because I have so much to be grateful for.
I find a certain amount of comfort in baking. I'm sure I've mentioned that before. So, this week, I've been baking. This is a brownie recipe that I LOVE, and have posted about before. It's easy and it yields a super fudgey brownie with a little milk chocolate and toffee goodness in the middle. I wanted to bring them back so you could be sure and enjoy them too.
Go ahead, make some.

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 30-35 minutes
Ingredients (12 brownies)
- 4 ounces unsweetened chocolate; coarsely chopped
- 3/4 cup butter
- 1 ½ cups white sugar
- 3 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 (4.5 ounce) Symphony Chocolate bars; broken into little rectangles
Preheat oven to 350. Line an 8 x 8 baking pan with parchment paper or foil, and butter or spray with non-stick cooking spray.
Microwave chocolate and butter in a large bowl (slowly and at low power-don't burn the chocolate!) for 2-3 minutes (30 seconds at a time) or until butter is melted.
Whisk until chocolate is melted. Whisk in sugar and add in eggs, vanilla and salt. Whisk until smooth. Gradually add in flour and stir until just combined.
Spread ½ the batter into prepared pan. Add an even layer of Symphony bar rectangles and cover with remaining ½ of brownie batter. Gently spread the batter, making it smooth and even. Bake for 30 - 32 minutes; do not over bake.
Let brownies cool completely on a rack before cutting.Source: My Baking Addiction
