One Bowl Chocolate Cherry BrowniesI am wondering something about food. I have a co-worker, who eats nothing but fast food. Why because he always has coupons for the various places, so every day for lunch he gets Burger King, McDonald’s, or Arbys. He joined us for a celebration dinner of another co-worker, who was retiring, and the place we went to was known for their made from scratch menu. After the dinner, he complained that the dinner was too salty. We did notice when someone brought something in that was processed, but actual homemade stuff, he complained it was salty.

This crazy schedule I am been working, I stay with my parents a few nights. My parents, my mom doesn’t make dinners from scratch because just the 2 of them. So there is a lot of processed foods they eat. I made a dinner for them, and my parents thought was salty, however, I did not put salt in it. I tasted it and it wasnt salty.

So now I do wonder, is it possible that with all this ready to eat foods, the processed, boxed dinners, are our taste buds warped? Personally, I do not eat boxed meals. I really do not have processed. I do make many things from scratch. So is that why the dinner I made did not taste salty to me, yet both my parents thought it was. I thought of the co-worker and that dinner he went too how he complains that things are salty. When he says that about the homemade items, another co-worker always says, “he thinks everything is salty because all he eats is Burger King.” It does make you wonder, are our taste buds warped from the foods we eat? It is a thought.

As I said, I do like to make things from scratch, especially baked goods. Brownies, is one those things I really love making from scratch. I have been wanting to make over some my old photos of the recipes on Seduction in the Kitchen. One the photos I wanted to re take is my Easy Brownies. I started off making them, Then it changed. I decided to change the recipe up, and I did I added chocolate chips instead melted chocolate. Then I saw some maraschino cherries in my pantry, chocolate covered cherries. Perfect lets add these cherries into the batter. Next thing I knew. I had a new brownie recipe.
