Recipes and Ruts-
Seems we all seem to get in them, don't we?
I know I have my favorite recipe for something and don't vary from it- mainly where baking is concerned. (Honestly I'm not one to actually follow a recipe otherwise- such the rebel, eh?)
I adore chocolate, and brownies... can you get any better than one straight out of the oven with a cool glass of milk? (Chocolate chip cookies come in a close second in my book.) The ultimate comfort food.
I use two recipes for brownies normally. The "Fudge Brownie" recipe that makes a small glass square pan (so I won't eat more) from BHG's "New Cook Book" from 1989,
The old time Betty Crocker's "Cooky Book" recipe from the 1963 edition (mom uses this one.)
It makes a 9x13" glass pan so I only do that one when I know the kids will devour most of them before I do.
Last night I had a brownie craving and made the BC recipe in (gasp) my Pampered Chef jelly roll stone pan! And... I iced them! The kids were in shock this morning when I revealed them.
"But these don't look like brownies, mom."
"These are different."
Sometimes change is good I think. The pan is a third gone already!
