Homemade Baked Goods & (Almost) Instant Gratification

I'd like to blame it on pregnancy cravings, but let's be honest... my love for homemade baked goods is nothing new.

And thanks to a couple of super-quick-and-easy recipes from event planner + entertaining expert Julie Blanner, I can have yummy brownies and cookies fresh from the oven anytime. Well, except that I'm trying to keep it all in moderation...

Julie and I first crossed paths when I interviewed her for an article I wrote for EA Bride Magazine. Meeting new people and learning new things are definitely perks of freelance writing!

I tried out Julie's brownie recipe a couple of weeks ago, and I made the peanut butter cookies last night. You can get these "five-minute" recipes (and a ton of other amazing tips!) on her blog. P.S. Her photos are infinitely better than mine.

In other news, our crib and mattress arrived today! Thanks to my winter coat, I'm not entirely sure our neighbors know we're expecting. But since our new items are currently hanging out in the tiny entrance to our condo building, the secret may be out :)


  1. i need to make those brownies. we are having company over tomorrow night and i was going to make brownies but i have never found a recipe that i like as much as the boxed kind, shock and awe I know. so making this for sure!

    1. Definitely try this one -- it's so quick to whip up and uses staple ingredients you probably already have on hand!


I'd love to hear from you!
