can’t believe i’ve never made carrot cake before. this recipe is a definite winner. i went for it with walnuts and raisins, and nothing beats homemade cream cheese icing.

photo cred goes to my friend kelsey. she helped me whip this baby up and get it into the oven in less than an hour. then, we ate it before it was anywhere near cool. and it was awesome.

brownies, take two. in a pinch for time last night, i whipped these guys up with the recipe on the side of the nestle toll house cocoa container (mixing to baking took 30 minutes total). the recipe, it turns out, is amazing. i was able to cut the brownies without having them crumble into big globs of chocolate (the WORST) and they are so yummy, chewy and chocolatey. i think i’m done using boxed brownie mixes. believe it! recipe here!
