Turtle Brownies

One of my projects of late has been weeding through cookware. Over the years I’ve accumulated tons of it, but not all of it is good. What I treasure now and want to make room for more of is my All-Clad. It may sound melodramatic, but cooking with good quality metal pots …

Peanut Butter Caramel Swirled Brownies are from a Bobby Flay Showdown. It was Bobby Flay against a little company in Vermont called The Vermont Brownie Company and as usual, I missed the show. Bummer, because Gesina was on this episode as a judge — I need to watch more TV. Luckily, somebody told me about […]

What’s the story? I have to know and will fill you in later. For now, here’s another recipe that also just happens […]

Uncut Caramel Brownie

This brownie is made with a Ghirardelli product called “Sweet Ground Chocolate and Cocoa” .  It comes in a gold canister and can be used for hot cocoa and certain baked goods.  When you see it, you’ll understand why it can’t be used spoon for spoon in place of regular unsweetened cocoa, so my advice […]

Caramel Filled Brownie

This is one of my favorite caramel brownie recipes. The original version of the recipe is in The Pastry Queen: Royally Good Recipes from the Texas Hill Country’s Rather Sweet Bakery & Cafe (an awesome book!), but I’ve made little changes to it over time.
