Familiar voice

Baking for me, is a way of escaping into a place of comforting and creativity. When I am in the kitchen, I lose track of time and is in a whole new utopia. I almost forgot how comforting baking could and can be. I mean, desserts are not meant to serve just one.

I had the time to bake something extremely different and new yesterday night. Chocolate Peanut Pretzel Squares.

unsalted butter
brown sugar
egg yolks
vanilla extract
all purpose flour
regular oats

semisweet chocolate
unsalted butter
corn syrup
pretzel pieces
chopped peanuts

The taste was very refreshing in a way that it was sweet and salt at the same time. There was great balance between the two and it kept me going back for more. My co-workers really enjoyed it and wanted to know how to bake it.

We will see how the lady reacts to it.
