I love recreating and updating classics. Whether it's refurbished furniture, recycled clothes or an old recipe sometimes adding a modern twist can upgrade something to the next level. It's not necessarily about losing out on the tradition but allowing something to flourish in new times. It's back to school time so I thought that this would be the perfect opportunity to visit some old dessert recipes made for lunch time but improve on the flare and flavor.
As a child and now as an adult, dessert has always been the best part of the meal. Starting as an adolescent I came to appreciate the preparation and taste that came from homemade goodies versus those from a package. Fresh cookies or brownies in my lunch made the night before always meant more to me than something out of a box. What a wonderful opportunity to share a classic recipe that is sentimental and also great for school time or anytime.
