twd: bittersweet brownies


Bittersweet...

Coming back to the ritual of TWD baking in the last weeks of the journey...

The last few golden leaves shimmying and clinging to near-bare branches...

Friends close yet distant...

A semester two-thirds completed...

Saying goodbye to friends who are embarking on new, exciting paths...

Bittersweet...

Like most of life, sadness and happiness intertwined. Longing and fulfillment coexisting.

Bittersweet...
My favorite kind of chocolate, and my favorite kind of brownie.

Leslie from Lethally Delicious selected this week's recipe, which I had made before, but made again on Sunday. While I'm still partially to the fudginess of cocoa brownies, I love the depth and richness and, yes, of course, the bittersweetness of these brownies, not to mention the ease of preparation (one bowl, one baking pan).

  1. You capture it perfectly - the recipe, the baking group, the season, transitions - bittersweet indeed. When TWD ends, I'm going to start at the beginning and bake the recipes chosen before I joined TWD. Let me know if you want to bake along on any of the recipes. That would be sweet!

  2. Ditto on Nancy's comment. I am also starting the new year doing the one's I missed. The last brownie = SAD!!
