Slutty Brownies

Two months since my last post, pathetic isn't it? Every single time I swear that I will stick to this blog thing, I go strong for a few weeks and then stop again. I wish there was more time in a day. I also wish that the foods I really enjoy making weren't so high in calories. Sweets and carbs don't do much for the ol' wedding dress figure or my weak diet attempts. In a perfect world, I could skip working and spend my days working out, cooking up something for a blog post, eating what I make, working out again, and having dinner on the table by the time Ry got home. Maybe someday, right? A girl can dream! On a super positive note, I am about to be out of school for the summer, which means more time for blog postings...and my never ending list of wedding errands, planning, and purchasing. 

We are almost down to four months now! I can't even believe how fast our big day is approaching. It seems no matter how much I get done, I still have five billion more things to do. Come to think of it, I will have a lot more time for blog postings once this wedding is over. It takes up a huge chunk of my time. I have to say though, I really do love it. Regardless of the stress it causes, or the large amount of money it costs - this whole planning process has truly been fun for me.

I spent my Memorial Day weekend doing some really fun stuff. Saturday was the "Color Me Rad" run in Tampa. Some of my fellow Kindergarten teacher friends and I participated. I had a blast, aside from my raging inner-cluts coming out and busting my face in front of a huge crowd of people (yes, this really happened and I have numerous bruises to prove it). Check out these rad pictures from the day!


Yesterday Ryan and I spent our day hanging out and BBQing with one of my best friends, her wonderful husband and little girl. I wanted to bake something quick and delicious, so I went with one of the greatest brownie creations of all time - The slutty brownie. Expect your backside to grow with this one friends....

There really are no words for how sinfully amazing these things are. I would literally eat them until I was sick if I thought I'd fit in anything but "fat pants" afterwards. These things cause me major eaters remorse. You know, that sinking feeling of guilt after annihilating something seriously bad for you. Regardless of all that, you want to make these. No, really you do. If you have a party or event to attend, take the twenty minutes to whip these up. If you do, count on being a hit and making lots of new friends.

In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and salt. Add flour mixture to creamed mixture slowly until all is incorporated. Stir in chocolate chips. Spread cookie dough in the bottom of a 9×13 baking dish that has been lined with parchment paper and sprayed with cooking spray. Top with a layer of Oreos. Mix together brownie mix. Pour the brownie batter over the cookie dough and Oreos. Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes. Remove foil and continue baking for an 15-25 minutes. Let cool completely before cutting.
