Wasting Time in the Kitchen

Ok, maybe I'm being a little hard on myself with all of this wasting time stuff. Everyone needs to eat, and everyone needs a little down time. The last three weeks have been crazy busy, albeit in a really good way, and taking a little time to do something other than work (like bake, poke around on Facebook, or watch Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist with the Sweetie) is actually time well-spent.

So there.

Last night, I whipped up a batch of gluten-free brownies, and used the new Baker's Edge pan the Sweetie got me for Christmas (he had more under the tree than just flesh-eating beetles! what a guy!). I really love the chewy, crunchy edges of brownies, and there's always a bit of a battle in the house to get the corner pieces, then the edges, and then, determine who's desperate enough for a chocolate carbo-crack fix to eat the interior pieces.

No more. Now every piece has at least two chewy edges. The brownie mix itself was a bit cakey, but the brownie edges? Still chewy. YUM.
