Brownies

THE MOUNDS BROWNIE. YES, IN ALL CAPS.

It’s April, so Coconut Month may technically be over, but that doesn’t mean I have to quit the white stuff cold turkey, does it? This past week I made a recipe I’ve been dreaming up in my head for awhile now: the Mounds Brownie. (Similar recipes may exist, but I couldn’t find one that sounded…

Valentine’s Day Candies

If the garlands of red roses and stacks of heart-shaped chocolate boxes and giant inflatable Cupids in stores haven’t tipped you off already, allow me to warn you: Valentine’s Day is nearly here. If you’re looking for fun V-day sweets, here are some cute things I’ve recently been featuring on the candy website: Homemade Conversation…

Me + Rick Katz’s Brownies = True Love

It is fitting that we made these brownies the week of Valentine’s day, because I am in love with them. Yes, I said it. And I’ll say it again: LOVE. Inanimate objects, you say? Psh. Details. Now I know my husband reads this blog, so it might get a little awkward around the house, but…

Brownie Cookies, the Best of Both Worlds

First off, a bit of business. My Oh Nuts! giveaway ended last night, and the winner, as chosen by the random number generator, was lucky number 17: Caroline of Sweet Caroline. So Caroline, email me your contact information and I’ll get the gift certificate sent your way! Speaking of nuts and dried fruit and yumminess,…

Deep Chocolate Brownies

Recently I received some samples of TCHO baking chocolate to try. If you’re not familiar with TCHO, they’re an artisan, bean-to-bar chocolate company based in San Francisco. I’d tried their chocolate bars in the past, and found them very good, but far too pricey to do any baking with…it’s the kind of chocolate you savor…

TWD Brownie-Cherry Torte and DB’s Macarons, oh my

It has finally happened…the perfect storm of blog posting. Two of the baking groups I belong to, Tuesdays with Dorie and The Daring Bakers, have challenges that have to be posted today. As George Costanza would say, “worlds are colliding!” So rather than make 2 separate posts, today’s blog will be a super-duper-mega-big post about…

TWD: Brownie Buttons

I loved everything about these wee cute-as-a-you-know-what brownie buttons. Adorable size? Check. Easy to make? Yes. Good crunchy-crust-to-fudgy interior ration? Uh-huh. Twee name? Absolutely. Great taste? Certainly!After a morning of airplane travel and hours spent at the Sprint store and grocery store, it was a relief to be able to come home, make these, photograph…

TWD: Tribute to Katharine Hepburn Brownies

Hrmmm. I have serious doubts about these “Tribute to Katharine Hepburn” brownies being an actual tribute to Katharine Hepburn. I mean, they don’t look a thing like her! How can you compare those dull chocolate squares to this dame? Check out her killer cheekbones. They just don’t make ‘em like they used to. Now HERE’S…
