Peanut Butter and Jelly Brownie Torte

Peanut Butter and Jelly Brownie TorteI knew exactly what I wanted to make for this month’s Improv Challenge.  I had great plans.  And then I moved my blog from Blogger to WordPress at the spur of the moment and my world sort of fell apart.  First off, because of the latest Blogger update and because my blog mover was in Canada, all the redirects ended up being sent to Egg Tacos.  Now folks, I was really excited about those egg tacos when I first made and posted them, but after three days of everybody being sent to see them, I started putting a few blankety-blanks in front of those eggs.

Once that problem was fixed, there were all the mundane tasks to be done, like fix photos, add plugins and figure out SEOs, all of which continues to rob me of any spare time.  So when it came time to make my Peanut Butter and Jelly dish, I did what anyone in my mental state of frazzledness would do.  I used convenience foods, including Kraft’s new Philadelphia Chocolate Indulgence.  And frankly, I’d do it again.  These tortes were phenomenal.
