Craving: Red Velvet Brownies - freutcake

I burnt a batch of caramel, ruined shortbread and my pizza dough was a disaster. What was happening? Why did my favorite past time turn on me? …Sunday night rolled around and I felt the need to redeem myself with one last recipe for Red Velvet Cream Cheese brownies. I crossed my fingers, said a little prayer and made a batch.

Love Vermont Chocolate Fudge Brownies & I'll Have What She's... I’ve mentioned before that up until a few years ago my parents rented a cottage off Lake Memphremagog every summer.

Love Vermont Chocolate Fudge Brownies & I'll Have What She's...

It was a beautiful place. The cottage was right on the water, we would sit on the dock with a cup of coffee and enjoy the sights and sounds. To me there is nothing more soothing than the sound of water lapping the shore. Around the cottage there were woods and trails. Before 9/11 you could wander through the woods and accidentally end up in Canada. Since we stopped renting the cottage I’ve been to Vermont a handful of times.

My mom and I drove down Sunday afternoon. Our original plan was to spend one day in Burlington and to spend another driving around Vermont. My favourite part of the trip took place Monday evening. “Take me home, country road…” It was a wonderful night and highlighted what I like most about Vermont: the people. We changed our plans to drive around because of the roads and bridges that are still washed out. Nutella Brownies Recipe - What is it about Nutella that just puts everybody in a craze???
