Brownies = Love!


There is a special dessert that my grandchildren just love.  It's my brownies.  When they were younger I would tell them the recipe was a secret, but after a few years they figured it out.  Betty Crocker and I teamed up to bake those super-delish chocolate brownies.  They were preferred over birthday cake for a few years!  Imagine that.  It always amazed me that they thought they were/are so good, but maybe it was because no one at their house was a chocoholic like their Grandma!  (giggle)

When my kids were young I made brownies from scratch.  It just seems easier and faster to use a mix nowadays, and to me, they taste the same - yummy!  There are no grandkids within 100 miles now, but HB (HoneyBunny) and I still have them from time to time.  To me they are comfort food.  Do you feel that way, or have a favorite food that gives your that snuggle-in-a-blanket-by-the-fireplace feeling?  That's what brownies do for me.


My scale tells me I should not indulge myself, even occasionally, but my mind overrules the scale and I find myself mixing up a batch, savoring the aroma as they bake.  They don't even get a chance to cool down before I am sampling them (just to make sure they are fit to share, of course).

What's your favorite treat or a dish your family requests often?  I love hearing about traditions in families!
