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

A Tale of Two Brownies

Dear readers: This story has a tragic beginning, but do not fear–it has a happy ending. Once upon a time, there was a woman who diligently read the food section of the LA Times each Wednesday.
