In the spirit of my “taking it easy/going with the flow” last week, I switched my daily afternoon coffee “pick-me-ups”, for tea. When I really thought about it, all I really desired was a hot drink.
Having no additional caffeine from that drink meant relaxing would come a bit easier, and bedtime a bit earlier. It was & it did. By about 10:30 (versus the usual “some-time-past-midnight”)…my eyelids were droopy.
There was a 2 for $5 sale on Celestial Seasonings tea, so I bought Raspberry Zinger and True Blueberry (the blueberry also came highly recommended by my sisters…they also suggested Peach). Peach wasn’t on sale.
I love the Raspberry; tart & berry flavorful I let it steep for 5 minutes, then sweeten my cup with honey.
Blueberry was good too. I was surprised at how dead on it is; true blueberry flavor indeed! I mean, can you imagine trying to capture that essence…I can’t even describe that blueberries taste like.
So…back to these brownies…
They are so quick & fun to make (you get to drizzle & swirl the caramel topping!). The box only calls for 3 other ingredients: egg, oil & water. Easy!
I still believe in the “homemade fresh, is best” notion, but these are very, very good; especially if you’re in a hurry, or just don’t feel like making brownies from scratch.
For a perfect afternoon, or any time, “pick-me-up”…try them with a cup of Raspberry tea!
Have you tried Ghirardelli brownies?
