BLACK BOTTOM COOKIE BARS - Cooking and Recipes

It's possible to trade profitably on the Forex, the nearly $2 trillion worldwide currency exchange market. But the odds are against you, even more so if you don't prepare and plan your trades. According to a 2014 Bloomberg report, several analyses of retail Forex trading, including one by the National Futures Association (NFA), the industry's regulatory body, concluded that more than two out of three Forex traders lose money. This suggests that self-education and caution are recommended. Here are some approaches that may improve your odds of taking a profit. Prepare Before You Begin Trading Because the Forex market is highly leveraged -- as much as 50 to 1 -- it can have the same appeal as buying a lottery ticket: some small chance of making a killing. This, however, isn't trading; it's gambling, with the odds long against you. A better way of entering the Forex market is to carefully prepare. Beginning with a practice account is helpful and risk-free. While you're trading in your practice account, read the most frequently recommended Forex trading books, among them Currency Forecasting: A Guide to Fundamental and Technical Models of Exchange Rate Determination, by Michael R. Rosenberg is short, not too sweet and highly admired introduction to the Forex market. Forex Strategies: Best Forex Strategies for High Profits and Reduced Risk, by Matthew Maybury is an excellent introduction to Forex trading. The Little Book of Currency Trading: How to Make Big Profits in the World of Forex, by Kathy Lien is another concise introduction that has stood the test of time. All three are available on Amazon. Rosenberg's book, unfortunately, is pricey, but it's widely available in public libraries. "Trading in the Zone: Master the Market with Confidence, Discipline and a Winning Attitude," by Mark Douglas is another good book that's available on Amazon, and, again, somewhat pricey, although the Kindle edition is not. Use the information gained from your reading to plan your trades before plunging in. The more you change your plan, the more you end up in trouble and the less likely that elusive forex profit will end up in your pocket. Diversify and Limit Your Risks Two strategies that belong in every trader's arsenal are: Diversification: Traders who execute many small traders, particularly in different markets where the correlation between markets is low, have a better chance of making a profit. Putting all your money in one big trade is always a bad idea. Familiarize yourself with ways guaranteeing a profit on an already profitable order, such as a trailing stop, and of limiting losses using stop and limit orders. These strategies and more are covered in the recommended books. Novice traders often make the mistake of concentrating on how to win; it's even more important to understand how to limit your losses. Be Patient Forex traders, particularly beginners, are prone to getting nervous if a trade does not go their way immediately, or if the trade goes into a little profit they get itchy to pull the plug and walk away with a small profit that could have been a significant profit with little downside risk using appropriate risk reduction strategies. In "On Any Given Sunday," Al Pacino reminds us that "football is a game of inches." That's a winning attitude in the Forex market as well. Remember that you are going to win some trades and lose others. Take satisfaction in the accumulation of a few more wins than losses. Over time, that could make you rich!

BLACK BOTTOM COOKIE BARS

BLACK BOTTOM COOKIE BARS

Black Bottom Cookie Bars are a delicious celebration of one of baking’s classic flavor combinations – chocolate and vanilla!
Summer had always meant unbearable heat and a few months of staying inside as much as possible.
With few exceptions for especially hot days, I am not as hesitant as I once was to spend time outside or turn on the oven and bake something delicious.

These cookie bars called to me. They were practically begging to be made. So, make them I did. And a wise decision that was.
Imagine, if you will, a bar with a rich, chocolate bottom layer. It has a double dose of chocolate with both cocoa powder and chocolate chips. Then there’s a vanilla top layer. While there’s no cream cheese involved, the taste and texture are reminiscent of cheesecake. The total package is a soft, chewy, delicious treat that works in any season in my kitchen.

BLACK BOTTOM COOKIE BARS RECIPE
Black Bottom Cookie Bars are a wonderfully delicious chocolate-vanilla experience!

INGREDIENTS:
  • 1 cup (226g) unsalted butter, melted (plus more for the baking dish)
  • 1 cup (200g) firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup (100g) granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 & 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups (240g) all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup (20g) unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 & 1/4 cups (213g) semisweet chocolate chips
DIRECTIONS:
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly butter an 8-inch square baking pan. Line with parchment, leaving about a 2-inch overhang on two sides. Lightly butter the parchment.
  2. Whisk together the butter and both sugars in a large bowl. Whisk in the eggs and vanilla. Gradually add the flour and salt, mixing just until moistened.
  3. Divide the batter in half, and transfer one half to a separate bowl. To one portion of the batter, add the cocoa powder and chocolate chips, and stir until combined.
  4. Place the chocolate batter in the baking pan. Spread evenly and smooth the top.
  5. Spread the plain batter on top of the chocolate batter. Smooth the top.
  6. Bake 25-30 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool completely in the pan on a wire rack.
