My simple advice to you is get a bag (or two) of this delicious Brownie Brittle the next time you’re at Costco or Don Quijote. Why? Well, if you typically reach for the crunchy corner pieces in the brownie pan like I do, you’ll absolutely love these crisp and decadent snacks. As the package reads, “No more fighting for the Corner Pieces.”

Apparently, these brownie treats have been on the shelves for some time now, but I only recently discovered them when my mother-in-law sent us home with a bag the other night. I’m glad…and mad…she did. This has instantly become a family favorite and will surely satisfy your craving for declines chocolate brownies anytime of the day.

Have you tried this yet? Love? Hate?

My apologies in advance if you get hooked like we are.


As the package


I finally did it! After months of research and changing my mind from Canon to Nikon to Canon, I finally purchased my first DSLR camera yesterday from Costco. Yes, Costco!

I’ve had my eyes on the Canon EOS Rebel T1i for quite some time and took the plunge yesterday after stumbling upon a $1,049 kit at Costco that included the camera with a EF-S 18-55mm IS lens, an additional EF-S 55-250 mm F/4-5.6 IS lens, gadget bag, 4GB SDHC memory card, mini-HDMI cable, and a bunch of tutorial stuff. It seemed like a good deal for a beginner like me that I couldn’t pass up. And I’ve been a fan of Canon’s PowerShot cameras for years, so I figured why change brands now.

So far the camera is living up to the hype in my opinion. Point-and-shoot features produced some nice photos right out of the box. The photos in this post were taken in the most basic setting and came out pretty good. The exciting thing is there’s a ton more options for me to figure out. I have a feeling I’m going to become somewhat of a photo nut as I explore all the features, including the full HD video capabilities.

Stay tuned as I unleash my inner photographer on my family, friend, and anything within picture taking range. 😉 For now, I leave you with a few shots I snapped of Ensen last night. That’s him with his cousin Bradley who’s visiting from San Francisco.

After filling up our RAV4 at Costco this weekend with regular for $52, I thought this photo was quite appropriate to express the way many commuters feel these days. Agree?
