Comfort Food

Today I am supposed to write about my favorite comfort food... haha I don't even know where to START!!

I genuinely try to eat pretty healthy... I try and stay away from fast food and if I do eat it I get grilled chicken or something. But sometimes- a girl just needs Mexican food. The scary thing is I think I would be okay with eating Mexican food about 5 days a week. Yikes!

I also love sweets. Chocolate, candy, sour stuff, chocolate, cakes, cookies, brownies, chocolate, etc.

Actually I am baking right now! Perfect day to write about comfort food =)

Started with Heath Blondies for me and the hunny for our Valentines "treat":

Made delicious because of the browned butter.... YUM

Then onto the Red Velvet Whoopies for my Civics class tomorrow:

I think I reached my sweets quota for the next month or so. Feelin a little sick right now.

I posted a link to the heath blondies the other day but here is the red velvet whoopie recipe... SO easy.

For the Red Velvet cookies:
1 Box red velvet cake mix
1/2 Cup butter, softened to room temperature
2 Eggs

For the Cream Cheese Filling:
1/2 Cup butter, softened to room temperature
1 8 oz. Package cream cheese, softened to room temperature
