CARAMEL BROWNIES

(Edited)

Hey Guys!

I hope you are all well here on HIVE and we can reconnect again after my considerably long absence.

Honestly, I did not plan to take such a long time off, but I needed to figure out lots of things. As some of you know, I started a new blog that needed my attention and most importantly, as many of you know am a grandmother. My grandsons are turning five in April 1st and they already started kindergarten last year. We been spending lots of time together, reading, crafting, drawing, and playing.

Nevertheless, I am back now, with a new and fresh way to share with you my recipes! Yes, I finally made it happen and I created my first video and more is in the process. Well, I made some short recipe videos before, but I wouldn't really count them.

It may not be perfect, because I am still learning, and it will take a long time before I master it. My son in law downloaded quite challenging video software for me, the “Adobe Premier Pro”, but I am having hard time with it. He is helping me, but he is also busy with his construction business, so he has only little time left.

Therefore, I decided to combine the editing part for now on very basic “Windows Video Maker”, which I think is fine for now. I guess with the arrival of spring I feel the need to get going again and join the HIVE community.

By the way these CARAMEL BROWNIES are absolutely delicious and totally guilt free. What surprised me the most was that both of my daughters loved them and they have completely different likes when comes to sweets. My older daughter likes chocolate and nuts and my younger chocolate and fruits. Yet, neither of them are bog fan of caramel until I introduce them to vegan and practically raw caramel made of Medjool dates. It is definitely must try recipe, not to mention,super easy!

Hey @lenasveganliving, what a lovely surprise seeing you here again! Gorgeous brownies for sure, looks sooo good and of course healthy as always. Nice seeing you in person as well, you're very brave doing the video, well done🤩
I'm looking forward to seeing your delicious food again!
You can now blog through various communities like Natural Medicine or Foodies Beehive for example, those would make a perfect fit for your content.
You could even start your own Vegan community but that would be extra work which you may not need now...
But I'm really happy seeing you as many others certainly will be!
Enjoy Hive 🌻🌻🌻🐝

Hello Dear Lizelle! Thank you so much I am happy to see you too. I did publish this post from Natural Medicine community. At least I thought I did, lol. But I am definitely not going to start anything myself. I have too much going on as it is. I just like to enjoy the HIVE community without any responsibilities at this time 💖😍💖

I fully understand, just enjoy things here. Hive really is fabulous now with all the awesome communities.
I think you did what many of us do, to post through a community you need to obviously go to that community, subscribe and then click the 'Write a Post' in the blue box, not pick up the pen at the top bar.
But no matter, your post did well:)

Thank you so much for stopping by my Dear Barbara! By the way, I couldn't figured out for the longest time how to set up the auto-voting, but I think got it now. However, just incase I better confirm in with you if I did it right.

Well what I did, I am creating a list, is that all? I also have to set up the value of my vote. But for now I leave it 100%, because my vote in low until I get my Hive back which I delegated.

If you can help me with this auto-voting I would really appreciate it 💖😍💖

What is you use to auto-vote ? is it HiveVote ..? If yes, you have to go in "Fanbase", add the username of people you want to give an autovote and set the details such as the percentage, the time, the limit of posts for a day and the limit for a week, and that's it !

Lena! Oh so good to see you back! Though I of course am happy to see you pop up elsewhere, but fun to see you back where we originally met. :)

These look gorgeous and delicious of course. I have been quite busy with work, so not on here as much these days myself. I still try to pop in when I can and post here and there. Lots of our old crew still here like @amy-goodrich and @carolynstahl in addition to those other friendly faces I see who have already said hello.

I look forward to see your next posts. I bet your garden is growing nicely. We have. We didn't stated with our little garden yet, but we will in May. We had lots of tomatoes and herbs last year, so we are going expend a little this year. I will take phots for sure 🍅🌿🍓🥒🌱

Welcome back, and yes a lot has changed on Hive since you went inactive for a time. I noticed your comments about the video post and your technical problems. It's not super user-friendly, but the best way to upload and post a recipe video with a partnering blog post is to first create your draft just as before.

Before publishing, go to 3Speak, upload your video, but you need to copy and paste your post body into the area called "description" in 3Speak. Also, you must choose the community you want to publish in from 3Speak. If you choose Natural Medicine, don't forget to add the #naturalmedicine tag as well to make sure your post is eligible to earn LOTUS rewards.

Brownies look incredible by the way, thanks for sharing!

I am so sorry I missed your comment Justin. Thank you so much for such a heartwarming comet. Oh and I just uploaded a new video, but I don't have a problem uploading videos on 3speak. I am learning how to use Adobe Premier Pro for editing. I actually made a progress and I learned more, but I have more to go 😍
