RECIPE: TKG's Brownie Balls with Cointreau Infused Cranberries

We may still be quarantined inside our homes but that doesn't mean we have to let go of our love for food. And if there's something positive that happened in our new normal, I'd say that most people (including me) have discovered the simple joys of spending more time in the kitchen.


Here's my take on a classic brownie recipe made special with Cointreau.



Ingredients:

Flour, 1 1/2 cups
Un-sweetened cocoa powder, 1/2 cup
Sugar, 1/2 cup (better if powdered sugar)
Butter, 1/2 cup softened
Eggs, 2 medium
Cranberries, 3 tbsp chopped
Cointreau, 3-5 tbsp (or just enough to soak the cranberries)

1. Soak the cranberries in Cointreau for at least 6 hours (better if overnight).
2. Mix flour, cocoa and sugar together.
3. Add eggs to the flour mixture and mix well.
4. Add the softened butter to the mixture by gently folding it into the batter.
5. Add the cranberries.
6. Grease the brownie pan (or in my cause I used a mini-muffin pan) with butter.
7. Heat oven to 200'F and set timer for 20 mins.
8. Place pan in oven and watch Netflix.
9. Bon appetit!

Yield: 36 brownie balls

Ooma-zing Food!

Sharing one of our resto-favorite! We've been dining here for about three years now and as much as I'd like to keep this resto a secret, it's already out in the open about how good the food is at Ooma. Ooma is a Japanese-fusion restaurant so don't expect the usual Japanese dish preparations but be ready for not only a visual feast but a fusion of east and west. For starters, we had this delightful cheesy maki. I believe this is on a limited run on the menu so I really can't recall what it's called. Crunchy and cheesy really, my daughter love this so much.
