  1. Oh. Yeah. I loooooove brownies! I’m definitely giving these a crack! You have so many recipes that I want to try. I can’t keep up with you….

    • I love brownies too. Not so great for my waistline but so easy to bake. Luckily I always have a horde of hungry teenagers to feed on weekends. This is one of the first brownie recipes I ever tried. Its so good I keep coming back to it again and again,an oldie but a goodie. Someone told me today that blondies are the new brownies…now there’s something I have never made before.
