The time has finally arrived. The Food & Wine Conference is this weekend and I thought it’d never get here. I am actually flying out tomorrow to meet up with my friends Isabel and Renee ahead of time, and I am so excited I’m practically bursting at the seams. Friday evening is when everyone begins arriving and I cannot wait to see so many faces I’ve been friends with online for so long. So many fun people are going. I’m sad that some are not, but I hope we will see them next year!
Since I have been so busy planning and preparing for the conference, I haven’t had much time for my blog or to be in the kitchen. We’ve had a lot of quick meals lately, as I tested plugins and web templates for my SEO session with. I’ve missed being in the kitchen but most of all I’ve missed sharing my life with you all through my blog. I will be back next week full force and will keep you update over the weekend so you can see what we’ve learned, and what we’re doing.
Fudgy and Moist Coconut Chocolate Brownies
I decided to make a batch of brownies for my family to enjoy while I was gone. I took our basic brownie recipe and changed it up a bit by substituting coconut extract and adding some coconut flakes. I made three batches (so they’d last… I have 5 teenagers, they’d eat them all in one sitting if I don’t make extras) so I tested one and I loved it. A little jealous I won’t get to enjoy the coconut chocolate brownies with them, but I know they will be enjoying them and thinking about me (living it up in Orlando).
What’s your favorite brownie combination?
