I actually got off of pinterest long enough to try one of the things that I had pinned. Today I tried the Slutty Browniesrecipe. I'm not sure why it's called that, but it wasn't too hard and they taste pretty good.
First, make chocolate chip cookie dough as usual and spread it out in the cake pan like a cookie cake. Add a layer of oreos. Make a brownie mix as directed and spread that out over the oreos.
I think I used too large of a pan because neither the cookie dough or the brownie mixes wanted to go all the way to the edge of the pan. It was a little bit of a task to get the brownies to spread because the mix that I chose was a little thicker than it should have been and I had to spread it out and hold the oreos down at the same time.
Anyway, they were yum. I think I'd like to add some chocolate syrup or hot fudge in there too and then they would REALLY be slutty...
However the most exciting news is that I took the pictures with my new lens! I found a Tamron 24-70 f2.8 lens on Craigslist. The guy was originally asking $400 a couple of weeks ago and then this week he went to $375. I talked him into $325 and went and bought it today! This will be a nice lens for portraits and also for weddings. The last wedding I did, I rented a similar canon lens for the wide aperture and I liked it a lot. Hopefully I'll be using this lens quite a bit in the weeks to come.
