My First Love

People say that first love never dies....

Well, do you still remember yours?

I Do.

In fact, i just met this guy again the other day. In this case, it's true that my first love still gives me an unusual sensation that leaves my heart wonders: Did i really get over my first love?

Turned out that i didn't ...

Let me introduce you to this awesome guy..

*teeheee...* gotcha!

Yes! you read it right! Chocolate brownies it was. Years ago when i still lived with the GM family back in Melbourne, they introduced me to this awesome chocolate brownies in whom i fell in love straight away. Never before had i consumed such a delectable brownies. It has the perfect level of chewiness and sweetness. I can't stand brownies that are too fudgey. They taste like chocolate bars to me. I prefer the ones with the texture of a cake, but with the right amount of chewiness and density. Just like this one. :)

So after years and years of not making one, (I don't understand why i haven't been baking one even though it was a fave amongst my friends. The last one i remembered was for Evangie before she left for good. Gosh that was almost 2 years ago ? I still owe Juls one batch. :( sorry dear. promise that i'll make you one when i come visit or when you go visit me here.. hehee.. ;)) I finally made it again the other day. They are still the same. This time however, i added orange and rum to give it a twist. Turned out, they were Heavenly!

OK, brownies are ready to go to bakingbee's shelf. :)

PS. On a side note, this particular brownies was also the very first cake I baked. I knew nothing of baking back then. I owe it to the GMs. Thanks for introducing me to this perfect brownies, for the hours we spent in the kitchen and for the unforgettable memories during those 2 precious years. I miss you guys. I miss the Greek food Yia-yia made and her best Baklavas ever! ;) let's meet up when i come back to Melbourne in the future!
