Just a few more days left of the year. Hope you had a great holiday. I sure as hell could use a do over. I am definitely going to take advantage of New Years Eve only because this Christmas wasnt what I was hoping for…
I had the flu.
and a sinus infection…
Which means I was pretty freakin miserable over christmas. I hear Im not the only one that got sick this year but it really sucks when everyone you love is celebrating and being merry, and you’re stuck. in bed. and absolutely miserable. No christmas ham. No homemade bread. No dessert. No seeing the look on everyones face when they open their present.
I am blessed though. I am well again. And i had so many offers from friends and family to spend the holidays with them.
but look out 2011… im making up for lost time!
I’m also having a sweet tooth since i missed out on all the wonderful Family Eats!
Behold! the Red Velvet Swirl Brownies! I promised when i made the Marble Brownies that I would give these babies another go when i re-upped my red food coloring…. so here they are.
Sonny Anderson’s Red Velvet Swirl Brownies
Ing: 1 stick butter (softened), 1 cup sugar, 1 tsp vanilla, 1/4 cup cocoa powder, 1 tbsp red food coloring, 1 tsp white vinegar, 2 eggs, 3/4 cup AP flour.
8oz cream cheese, 1/4 cup sugar, 1 egg, 1 tsp vanilla, whipped in the mixer.
Preheat the oven t0 350*.
drop small portions of the batter on top of the cream cheese layer.
Bake for 20-30 minutes or until center no longer jiggles.
Allow to cool. slice up. and serve.
These freeze really well! I will say that i liked the chocolate cream cheese brownies better… but these were still excellent. And different.
