5 Things I Learned This Week 03.14.14

So to give a bit of context, I went to give blood last Saturday, only to find out that my iron levels were WAY TOO LOW. Although I was sad that I couldn’t give blood, I was also a little revlieved because I’ve been feeling pretty lethargic and “bleh” and just chalked it up to the crappy winter we’ve been having. SO, a couple of things I’ve learned this week are iron related as I’m trying to get my iron levels back up to where they need to be (without taking a supplement).

The other 3 things are just plain COOL!

4. This one came from my Dad: The Mistake you Should Make for Better Brownies – apparently, you should bake your brownies for 15 minutes then remove the pan from the oven and let the brownies rest 15 minutes at room temperature. Return the brownies to the oven and continue to bake them until a wooden pick comes out clean, 17 to 20 minutes.This apparently gives them a more moist and fudgey quality! Will definitely be trying this one out!
