    Baking Brownies

    I find baking to be a great way to relief stress.... For me the best is kneeding the heck out of a ball of bread dough! The next best is my favorite brownies or chocolate chip cookies. When I bake it seems to help me sort my thoughts and come up with a plan of action when I'm...
