My first must have would be when you walk into my closet there would be a gigantic mall with all my favorite stores and those pony things that you can ride on but everything would be free and there would be a food court with all my favorite restaurants it would be the best!
2. my second must have would be smaller but decorate all the walls with cute things, i would do a photo wall and it would feel warm and cozy. click here to get to the photo wall
3. My last must have is pretty big but would be sooo cool, i do competitive cheer so i would do a book shelve and you would pull a book and it would spin around and you would be in a trampoline park with super fancy big trampolines and foam pits and i could practice my tricks before school everyday.
My favorite color is purple. Specifically Lavender purple, but i still like other purples too. I love the color Lavender because i like how it is warm and fun color! Lavender purple or all purples remind me of summer and i love summer. I took pictures from around the school of the color purple.
I like my name but i wish it was spelled differently, i wish it had a h at the end of it bc i think it looks better. My name was suppose to be Evie but my dad didn’t like it so when i was born my dad told everyone that my name was Nora instead and so my mom had no choice but to keep it Nora. Nora means Light.
Here are Letters of my name from around the school.
3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons (80 grams) unsweetened cocoa powder, natural or Dutch-process
1/4 rounded teaspoon kosher salt, use slightly less if using fine sea or table salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large cold eggs
1/2 cup (65 grams) all-purpose flour
2/3 cup (75 grams) chopped walnuts or pecans, optional
Position an oven rack in the lower third of the oven and heat to 325 degrees F. Line the bottom and sides of an 8-inch square baking pan with parchment paper or aluminum foil, leaving an overhang on two opposite sides. (This helps when removing the baked brownies from the pan, once cooled).
Add enough water to a medium saucepan so that it is 1 to 2 inches deep. Heat water until barely simmering.
Combine butter, sugar, cocoa powder, and salt in a medium heat-safe bowl. Rest the bowl over simmering water (if the bottom of the bowl touches the water, remove a little water). Stir the mixture occasionally until the butter has melted and the mixture is quite warm. Don’t worry if it looks gritty; it will become smooth once you add the eggs and flour.
Remove the bowl from heat and set aside for 3 to 5 minutes until it is only warm, not hot. Stir in the vanilla with a spoon. Then add the eggs, one at a time, stirring vigorously after each one.
When the batter looks thick, shiny, and well blended, add the flour and stir until fully incorporated, then beat with the wooden spoon or spatula for 40 to 50 strokes. (The batter will be thick). Beat vigorously here. You want to see the brownie batter pulling away from the sides of the bowl (if you do not have the strength to do this by hand, use a hand mixer). Stir in nuts, if using. Spread evenly in lined pan.
Bake the brownies for 20 to 25 minutes or until a toothpick can be inserted into the center and come out with a few moist crumbs. As a visual test, brownies are done when the edges will look dry and the middle still looks slightly underbaked.
Some readers have found they need to bake an extra 5 to 10 minutes. Brownies are easy to overbake so keep an eye on the doneness of the brownies and use the visual and toothpick test as your guide.
Cool completely then remove from pan. For the cleanest lines when cutting, place into the freezer for 20 to 30 minutes to firm up. Cut into 16 squares.
