A brownie by any other name…

A brownie by any other name…
Love brownies. Love their shiny, flaky top that shatters into micro-thin shards that shower onto your fingers as you eat. Love their dark, gooey center. Their “chocolate nirvana” flavor. Sometimes can’t deal with the bake, wait to cool, cutting into squares messiness and fuss of brownies. Want something I can enjoy within 5 minutes of its exit from the oven. Every time I make these cookies (which, truth be told, is quite often), I think of a former colleague, Ana, who left King Arthur last year in order to be a full-time mom to her 2-year-old twins. The test kitchen bakers loved Ana. Ana still visits occasionally, 2-year-olds in tow. And when she does, she’ll invariably nose out any chocolate, and treat us to her classic reaction: “Perfect! These cookies are basically brownies: flat, round, 2 ½” brownies. First task: Combine the chocolate and butter. Melt in the microwave till softened… …then stir till smooth. Stir the chocolate into eggs and sugar, which you’ve beaten together. Buy vs.

Nutella Brownies These Nutella Brownies almost didn’t happen. They were a last minute, oh hey, chocolate sounds kinda good, let’s do our favorite brownie recipe. Then, as I was grabbing the flour from my cabinet, I bumped into the jar of Nutella and, well, I just went with it. Divine intervention, y’all. It’s a thing. How To Make Perfect Brownies I’ve tried lots of brownie recipes: Boxes, scratch, frosted, plain, nuts, chips, fudge … Each of them has something to like, but depending on my mood I might want a change of pace. Not any more. My wife found this recipe, and it’s perfect. I’m done looking. This is the brownie recipe that I’ll use from now on.

A San Diego food blog sharing restaurant reviews and recipes Wednesday, June 1, 2011 I love lava cakes. For a while now I’ve had this idea playing in my mind to create lava cookies. I tried making nutella lava cookies before, but they didn’t come out exactly as I’d hoped, so I wanted to attempt it again. I took a chocolate cookie recipe that I love, which is thick and sturdy and put some nutella in the middle of the cookie dough. Chocolate Brownie Cookies & Namely Marly If you’re looking for a sweet treat these Chocolate Brownie Cookies might just be the ticket. Some days you wake up realizing you’re stuck in a rut. You don’t really know what got you there, except for the perpetual motion in the same direction. (That’s sort of the definition of a rut.) But then some days something will come along to shake your tires plum out of their tracks. Hopefully that something isn’t a panicked phone call from a loved one or an unexpected (and expensive) bill in the mail.

Chocolate Chip Lava Cookies I am so in love with these darn chocolate lava cookies! What is it about a warm, gooey chocolate chip cookie stuffed with decadent, rich, melted chocolate that makes it so irresistible?? Especially when topped with vanilla ice cream. These are one of Kev’s favorite homemade treats, and he usually asks me to make them at least once a week. They are so simple to whip up, and such a treat! Let’s make some right now :) Blondies Recipe Please welcome Simply Recipes guest author Garrett McCord who shares with us his favorite blondie recipe. Blondies are often called brownies without chocolate which I find silly; blondies are a dessert with their own unique deliciousness and personality. Whereas brownies depend on chocolate for their flavor, for blondies it’s all about the brown sugar, giving the blondies their distinctive molasses flavor.

The Ultimate Strawberry Lemonade One of the first times I ever realized that – HEY! I can cook for myself! – was when I first learned to make lemonade. I magically found the refrigerated lemon juice at our house and followed the directions to make my own lemonade. I stirred and stirred and stirred again until that sugar was finally dissolved. Chocolate Brownie Pudding Chocolate lovers – this one is for you! It’s seriously the most decadent and rich dessert I have ever eaten in my entire life! And man was it good. I mean how can you go wrong with butter, chocolate, Kahlua and ice cream? Right! It’s like a giant molten lava cake – and it seriously makes enough to feed any dinner party, which is exactly what I did with this.
