chocolate espresso bars

so yesterday i made chocolate espresso bars from the william's sonoma website to bring to a gathering with friends last night. they were reaaallyyy good! well loved by all. somewhat of a brownie but really really dense and chocolatey. i covered it up with the ganache that i had leftover which transformed into a great layer of chocolateyness. surprisingly the bars weren't that sweet, but very rich. i enjoyed them though. they're pretty good when still a little chilled from the refrigerator but not straight out of the fridge. fudgy, chocolatey, coffee-filled goodness. they're gone today. :P

finished product :D


here's the finished product while being devoured : )


my next undertaking might be apple pie baking. there's an "all-american apple pie recipe" contest for the culinary institute of america that i'm interested in. maybe i'll bake a couple and see if any would ever be worthy of submission. if not, it's still a fun project. mmm... apple pie!! can't wait to tinker with all the different components of it. i now also have to think about what to make for this sugar high fridays thing! man.. i live for baking.

Hello, I want to meet some other local people who, like me, are interested in cooking & particularly vegetarian cookery. I've found this site (vegetarian cookery). Are there any other ways of meeting similar people?
Many thanks
