Brownies! From Scratch!

I don't think I've ever made any better...nor will they ever be able to compare again. Growing up, I always made brownies from scratch but they were never really amazing. So I gave up started using the box mixes and adding to it a box of chocolate pudding. Even if it was a generic brand of brownie mix, the pudding made it spectacular.

Last week, I thought I would be a little more domestic than usual and try anew to made a great pan of brownies from scratch.

Ok, I realize it's probably not all that impressive. But I don't
bake all that often so I need to pat myself on the back a little.

Although today I did make an amazing chocolate cheesecake. I'd show you a picture, but it's in the oven and cheesecakes are rather sensitive creations.

Just know that it melts in your mouth and will have shaved chocolate, home made cream and fresh raspberries on top.

Cheesecake?! Impressive. I made a cheesecake once. That's the only time my super-fancy Pampered Chef Springform pan has been used, 'cause it was just such a fussy creature to work with (the cake, I mean).

It all sounds yummy, though!

Sorry guys, all the brownies are eated right up!:)

Jean, you still have that brick sitting in your freezer!? Maybe you had better bring some over tomorrow night...

Queen, it was a pretty yummy cheesecake too...I think this evening will find us devouring another piece!

It's really not too hard and I love it enough that it's work the efforts! :)
