I mentioned that I’m no good at baking. Well, that doesn’t stop me from trying! Over and over again. I don’t like to be bad at anything and I don’t really like to accept when I’m not good at something that I want to be good at. So, I keep baking. I also think it’s kinda fun, even if my baked goods never quite turn out right.
I also am not really a fan of sweets. They’re just not really my thing. I mean, I recognize that they taste good, but I don’t ever crave them. What I do love is ice cream and will take ice cream instead of any other sweet or really any other food when I have the choice. So I don’t do baked sweets very often, because I’m not interested in eating them.
I did have the occasion however, to bake for other people recently, which I am always happy to do. Andrew & Amy came over for a scary movie night back in October. And, knowing that the two of them like sweets I decided to try a new fun seasonal recipe.
I found this recipe for Pumpkin-Swirl Brownies from Martha (we’re on a first name basis). I think they turned out okay. I thought I should have baked them a little longer, but Andrew & Amy said they were good. Andrew ate two. They were definitely fun to make. Here are my baking photos (please ignore the state of my pot, we have a serious hard-water problem at our apartment):
