Butterfinger Blonde Brownies


I bought a package of butterfingers bits way back when planning to use them in some recipe I saw on Pinterest. Then life got in the way and I put the package in a jar and I put that jar in a cupboard and sorta forget about their existence. I unearthed those butterfingers bits the…

Chocolate Truffle Brownies


The past month or so I was busy studying for a work-related exam to gain an additional certification, which left me with little time to cook/bake/blog during my free time. Having aced the exam this past week, my free time opened back up and I was free to try this brownie recipe sent to me…

Gail’s Frosted Brownies


My mom sent me this recipe earlier in the week for brownies she’s made and shared with old family friends. This is not the brownie recipe I remember from my youth but apparently they were so popular with one of my parents’ friends that they would make them all the time and they dubbed them…

Mission Street Food’s Sour Cream Brownies {frosted}


A few weeks ago I decided I wanted to make a brownie using sour cream. Why? I had some in the fridge I wanted to use. Also, sour cream is awesome in cakes so I figured it would do well in other baked goods, too. I did a quick search and found a fantastic looking…

Brownie Base Red Velvet Cupcakes


Last night at Kyna and Lucas’s Fourth of July party, I launched into an explanation of the inspiration for these cupcakes prefacing it with when I lived in Long Beach, California – not Washington which was followed by strange looks and then comments such as I didn’t know there was a Long Beach in Washington or I wouldn’t have…

Double Chocolate Brownies


What can I say? I’m a sucker for brownies, cookies, cakes, pies or any other sort of dessert that exists. I spotted a recipe for double chocolate brownies from sweetasacookie.com that my sister had pinned. I changed the recipe slightly both on purpose and on accident. I had 5 egg yolks that I needed to…

Black Onyx and Black Sea Salt Caramel Brownies


I did it again. I discovered the best dessert brownie ever, per my boss. Sometimes I wonder if my boss is just being kind, as I’ve mentioned before that nearly every time I bring a dessert to work, she claims it’s the best dessert I’ve ever made. But in this instance I have to believe…

Dark Chocolate Brownies


In honor of my friend Jennifer’s birthday potluck celebration today, I made a new version of fudge brownies (by adding some dark chocolate to my go-to brownie recipe and fudging with ingredient quantities). This is some of the feedback I got: the birthday girl (who ate one before the potluck began) told me they were…

Brown Sugar Brownies


I have this compulsion with recipes. Whenever I see a new one (no matter what the recipe is as long as it sounds delicious), I have a compulsion to try it as immediately as possible. I find recipes everywhere and anywhere. Most my recipes are sent to me by grandma. The next biggest majority come…

Brown Butter Peanut Butter Brownies


I found a recipe for ‘chewy’ peanut butter brownies in the Penzeys Spices catalog. The last time I attempted peanut butter brownies, I believe they were a total flop. I believe the last time I attempted peanut butter brownies I took a recipe and went rogue. Just like today when I crossed the Penzeys Spices catalog…

Bourbon Brownies


These brownies are dense, almost fudge-like. The consistency reminds me a bit of flourless chocolate cake. The bourbon in the brownies cooks out, which is why I felt OK with topping them with Bourbon Buttercream Frosting. ingredients. 8 oz. bittersweet chocolate 8 T. butter, softened 1 1/2 c. sugar 5 eggs 3 T. brewed espresso,…

Dear Abby’s Brownies


It must be good. It’s Ann Lander’s! Is what my mom said when I asked her why she decided to try this recipe for my Grimm debut party. It wasn’t until later that she realized the recipe came from Dear Abby, not Ann Landers. My family has nothing if not a plethora of time-tested recipes…

Cake-Like Red Velvet Brownies


Last weekend when I was making my One-Bowl Brownies, I came across a few bottles of red food coloring in the cabinet at which point it occurred to me that about the only variety of brownies I haven’t tried are red velvet. Until today. ingredients. 3 T. unsweetened cocoa powder 1 oz. red food coloring…

One-Bowl Brownies


After my coworker Donn brought in dense, fudgy hazelnut brownies this past Friday, it inspired me to try a new brownie recipe I’ve had in my ‘drafts’ for a while now. This recipe won rave reviews from my coworkers. Cody told me I need to quit my job and go pro with baking. Monique said the…

Snickerdoodle Blonde Brownies


I found this recipe while doing my search for the perfect snickerdoodle cookie recipe and knew I wouldn’t be able to resist trying it because the pictures looked so damn good. ingredients. 1 c. cake flour 1 2/3 c. flour 2 tsp. baking powder 1 tsp. salt 2 c. packed brown sugar 1 c. butter,…

Gluten-Free Brownies


I have this obsessive-compulsive feeling toward oddball ingredients. For fear that I’ll never again use the ingredients, I feel compelled to use oddball ingredients immediately – and until completely gone. Which usually leads to me finding new recipes I wouldn’t normally try in order to use the ingredients. Perhaps not surprisingly, there aren’t an overabundance…

Peanut Butter Butterscotch Blonde Brownies


As I was pouring the Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Blonde Brownies batter into its pan to bake I was already dreaming up this recipe in my head. Ingredients 1 1/2 c. brown sugar 1/2 c. creamy peanut butter 3 eggs 1/2 c. butter, softened 1 tsp. vanilla 1 c. flour 1 tsp. baking powder 1/2…

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Blonde Brownies


In the latest round of recipes from Grandma Mo, this recipe caught my eye immediately. I love blonde brownies and don’t have a fall-back recipe; so I thought I would try my hand at these. Ingredients 1 1/2 c. sugar 1/2 c. creamy peanut butter 3 eggs 1/2 c. butter, softened 1 tsp. vanilla 1…
