The first one I tried was a brownie with cookie bites. I don't have pictures from it because I took it to work. Andy doesn't really like brownies and it turned out really rich. I think I made some new friends at work by bringing in treats, which is always a good thing. I think I've also made some enemies into not-so-bad enemies. I'm glad I can try things out now and they won't go bad before it's been eatten up, which is super nice.
The second recipe I tried was a cheesecake. I've made cheesecake before but it was from the back of a Nestle bag. The recipe from bakerella was much better. It had more cream cheese and it didn't include any chocolate chips, which made the cheesecake part stand out rather than the chocolate. The crust was regular graham cracker:
This was my first time making a crust from graham crackers. The most tricky part of this was blending enough to make a crust. It tasted really good. The rest of the cheesecake was really good too. This can be clearly seen here in the half eatten one :).
