I've been making a lot of my favorite cocoa-nib brownies recently and besides the nibs the secret ingredient is really great cocoa. I've been buying Valrhona cocoa by the pound from Surfa's (amazing, amazing store, btw - I hope to visit in person soon!) but it wasn't pricing out to buy a pound at a time. Long story short - the other day Mr. UPS man dropped off a 3 kilo box! Did a lot of online research and ended up ordering from Chocosphere - great price, reasonable shipping. I just want to stare at it all day!
PS - I forgot to bring my camera the day I made the cookies, so Doug went back the next day to take these. Thanks, Dougie!
P.S. - how obvious is it that Doug didn't take these photos???
Just heard that I'm one of the finalists in the baking contest I entered. The pessimist in me is thinking that they only had a couple entries to choose from, but who cares!!! I'm a finalist. Woo hoo! Check out the prizes. Sarah R. just gave up coffee but said that if I win something she'd come over an have a cup with me!
