Food & Fashion: Kate's Brownie Recipe

CAMILLE K is most definitely a jewelry brand so why a post about food?  If you follow us on Instagram, you will see frequent photos of food and the #cookingwithcarla hashtag.  Some of you have asked for the recipes and we have listened!


Cooking is a creative process -- especially so when you are willing to NOT follow the recipe and trust your instincts.  In the same vein of knowing what gem colors go together when I'm designing a new piece of jewelry, deciding what spices will complement a recipe I'm working on requires a similar sensibility.  And of course, there is the visual aspect of designing and cooking that is so appealing to me.  Jewelry tries to capture the wearer's interest with both beauty and comfort. Food attracts the eye of the diner and delights his/her palate.  Both should make every effort to stir  one's heart! 
   
I hope you will enjoy preparing and sampling some of my personal favorite recipes both sweet and savory!  If you know me, you know I love a good story. Here are Kate's three rules to live by for you to ponder as you bite into your first brownie: 

 
1- Never quit!
2- Be yourself!
3- Don't put too much flour in your brownies!
 
KATE'S BROWNIE RECIPE
 
1) Preheat oven to 325 degrees
2) In a heavy saucepan over very low heat, melt 2 squares  Guittard unsweetened chocolate and 8 Tbsp. organic butter.
3) Remove pan from heat and stir in 3/4 cup sugar. ( I often change to honey)
4) Beat in 2 organic eggs and 1/2 tsp. vanilla
5) Quickly stir in 1/4 cup flour (I use Cup4Cup gluten free flour), and 1/4 tsp. salt
6) Spread batter in a well-greased 8x8" baking pan. Bake 40 minutes. Remove, cool, cut and be delighted!
