Classic Brownies

What’s better than the smell of brownies baking in the oven? In many instances, nothing. These brownies are easy to whip up, creamy, and delicious!

To make these scrumptious goodies you’ll need…

  • 1 1/3 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • a handful of chocolate chips

Method:

Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt. You may wonder why sifting is such an essential part in baking; sifting helps combine ingredients while breaking up clumps of flour. In short, sifting helps make the brownies light and fluffy.

Stir the cocoa into the melted butter; than blend in the sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Once these ingredients are thoroughly combined, add in the flour mixture and than the chocolate chips.

Place the mixture in a greased baking pan and in an oven heated to 350F. Bake for about 35 minutes and let cool for a few minutes before enjoying with a cold glass of milk!

Chicken Soup

Chicken Soup

Yesterday for dinner we made chicken soup! This is an easy, no-mess recipe.

Ingredients:

  • Water
  • Chicken
  • 2 or 3 Carrots
  • 2 sticks of Celery
  • Peeled Onion
  • 1/2 Garlic blub
  • 1 Red Bell Pepper
  • 2 Red Potatoes
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Rice or Noodles
  • Parsley

Method:

First take a large pot and fill it half-way with water. Than add a chicken, the carrots, celery,onion, garlic,  pepper, and red potatoes. Add salt and pepper to your taste. Heat the pot on medium-high heat until the water boils; once it boils adjust the heat so the water is simmering. After the water has simmered for at least three hours, strain the soup. Add rice (or noodles), and cook until soft. Add parsley for garnish. (If you want to, you can eat the vegetables and chicken separately. Or you can mash it up and, through a strainer, add it to the soup if you want the soup to be thicker.) Enjoy!
