Fudge Brownies

Last week I posted a recipe for brownies that are delicious, but a little on the thin side. As an experiment, I decided to try decreasing the pan size to make them thicker. It sounds simple, but sometimes changing the pan size throws off the baking time and I wasn’t sure it would work. One […]

Updated Palm Beach Brownies

by on November 10, 2013 · 15 comments


This is one of my favorite brownie recipes, but I’m always trying new ones which means I don’t bake these very often.  When I do, it’s usually because I need a brownie that’s tried and true and impressive. For example, if there’s a bake sale or I’m giving brownies as gifts. These brownies always get […]

Melted Marshmallow Brownies

by on June 21, 2013 · 10 comments

Here, you stir in the marshmallows into the brownie batter […]

Chewy Brownies Made in One Bowl

Chewy Brownies

I’m pretty sure I’ve tried this recipe at some point, but for some reason it didn’t make an impression. Maybe the brownies weren’t tall enough?  Maybe I made them back-to-back with a recipe I just happened to like better?  I don’t know, but I made them again on this dreary Tuesday and decided they were […]

Milk Chocolate Macadamia Nut Brownies

by on April 12, 2013 · 5 comments


This recipe put a dent in my Hershey’s Macadamia Kisses supply, and that is a-okay. I want to use them while they’re still fresh, and right now the macadamias inside the Kisses are fresher than any of the ones I’ve purchased here in Austin. Thanks again to Stephanie, who brought the special Kisses home from […]

With six pounds of Halloween candy in the house, I thought twice about taking on a baking project. But I couldn’t resist! This recipe sounded so good! It’s a from Everyday Baking, a new book from The Old Farmer’s Almanac. If these bars represent the other recipes in the book, I’ll have to put it on […]
