Mise En Place, Please!

mise en place: (French) literally means put in place; in professional cooking, proper planning of equipment and ingredients for a food preparation and food assembly station.

- definition from Dictionary.com

The old adage that "if you fail to prepare, then prepare to fail" rings true every time. Despite numerous failures and hanging in the brink of failure in my cooking, I still resist doing full prep work when I cook. Strange, isn't it?

Here's my second attempt at Cooks' Illustrated Cream Cheese Brownies.

Anyway, the cream cheese brownie turned out alright (thank goodness!). I had it for breakfast and lunch yesterday. Absolutely sinful! Recipe for the brownie can be found here.
