Tuesdays With Dorie - Espresso Cheesecake Brownies

>> Tuesday, September 01, 2009

I know my readers are prob wondering what has happened me to the past week or so. Well, I got a job. Now before you go congratulating me and whatnot, it's not what you think. It's just a part-time job at Target. Yes, I spent the past four years in college, and I'm at Target. People tell me to suck it up and be grateful because it is a form of income. Sorry but working at Target doesn't help my self-esteem when I know I can do better. I just hope I can get life straightened out before it gets worse bc frankly, I'm not happy with how things are going.


On a slightly happier note, I made Dorie's Espesso Cheesecake Brownies aka crownies. Apparently Verizon doesn't recognize the word brownie when texting, but it does put crownie. I didn't even know that was a word or part of a word. Verizon also doesn't recognize salsa, jalapeno, fajita, or cupcake.

I really like my swirling. So pretty! I was skeptical on adding the sour cream layer, but some people said it added good contrast, so I did. Nope, not a fan. I ended up scraping off the sour cream when I ate a piece. The rest of the brownie is good, so next time I'll leave off the top layer. Also, I didn't have instant espreso powder. I was going to use instant coffee, but at the last minute thought, hey why don't I just make espresso? I'd be dissolving it in water anyway. If I would've thought about it earlier, I would've saved some when making my coffee.

Thanks to Melissa of Life In a Peanut Shell for picking these brownies! So good! You can find the recipe on her blog or pages 104-105 of Baking: From My Home To Yours.

Ahhh Target is better then Mc Donalds if that helps! Im glad you were able to bake with us this week! I love your brownies!

Well I'm still glad you have a job. It sooths things up for a bit, while you're looking for the job you want.

I have a food question for you. What is Stroganoff for you? Beef or chicken? Cause I had always thought that it was beef stroganoff, and nothing else. But apparently, the brasilians always do chicken stroganoff. It's good actually. But I'm still intrigued ;)

Sorry about your life situations! Sigh. I hope you find what you're looking for soon!
I left the sour cream top off my brownies, too. Your swirl does look great!

They say it's always easier to get a job when you have a job. Be patient! Good things will come!
Love the swirl and the brownies look delicious. :)

Yeah there are def two camps of people... sour cream cheesecake people and non-sour cream. It's too bad with your awesome swirling skills you didn't like it... but oh well :)

Good luck on the job search, and I know people will say "at least you have something", and you'll roll your eyes a little... but it's ok. It'll all work out!

Ah, Tar-ghay. Great store, but know how you feel. I graduated with my masters and worked at JCPenny for a year. UGH!!! It will get better.

Your crownies look great. I did the same thing and scraped the topping off after one bite.

Impossible to resist these brownies looks gorgeous.
Congrats and good luck for your new job!!

Your brownies look great! I'm sorry to hear that you are not happy to work at Target. I understand. But....in the meantime, while you're waiting for the job of your dreams (which will come), enjoy it. Target is my favorite store!!!!! xxoo

yum really? so jealous mine would not swirl...a case of stiff batter. boohoo but they were good.

comfycook 6:32 PM  

I have to try these. They are the best I have seen. (meaning in different kind of brownies)
