One of my fondest memories growing up in a household where my mom baked was all of the delicious smells.. and of course, brownies were on top of the list.
I was the girl that loved to make box mix brownies, sit on the counter, scrape the bowl & lick the spoon until every last drop of chocolate was gone. And then I would turn on the oven light, sit on the floor and look in the oven and watch patiently as the brownies baked. When they were finally done I could hardly wait for them to cool to dig in.
Being a wife and a mom, one of my most favorite things has been carrying on certain traditions & starting new ones. Ever since Wes and I have been married, we've always had some kind of treat on Sunday's. And it was brownies about 95% of the time. So over almost 10 years every week, that's A L O T of brownies. So we've tried out lots and lots of recipes. And this is one that I absolutely love! I have another batch in the oven right now and I SO wish that I could import the delicious smell of these brownies to tempt to to make these yummy things, but that will have to be sometime in the future, so you're just going to have to trust me... (Can someone please invent a "Smell"/"Scent" JPEG or PDF or whatever you would call it?!
