We are back from vacation, we had an amazing time with our kids and family in Sun Valley ID. Sometimes I wish time could stand still. Now my honey and I return to our empty nest and back to “real life”. I am missing my kids already, I need chocolate! A quick chocolate fix is a brownie. How do you describe the “best” brownie? Everyone has their own interpretation I am sure. If you do a search for brownies here at CCP, you will find many recipes with lots of additions, toppings or frostings. Here is a recipe for a good old traditional brownie, not dry and too cakey or mushy and gooey. It is what I think is a super good brownie, moist, fudgy with smooth, creamy pockets of chocolate from the chocolate chips. I am hoping a bite or two (interpretation – brownie or two) will send the blues away…in reality, I will just have to walk a few more miles tonight! Love and enjoy your family, it is the true happiness in life! (And have a brownie!)
