I Dare You NOT to Try These

I was having a chocolate attack yesterday and needed a quick fix. I came across this recipe on and it really, I mean really, did the trick. And, so easy! These are dense, chewy brownies that just melt in your mouth. Go ahead, you know you want some. Let me know what you think.

Best Darn Brownies
2 sticks butter
4T good cocoa powder
2 c white sugar
4 eggs
1 c all purpose flour
2 t vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Melt butter in heavy pot on stove.
Add the cocoa and stir until smooth - just a minute or two.
Take off heat and beat in rest of ingredients.
(I beat the eggs separately and gradually added small amounts so as not to scramble them in the hot cocoa.)
Pour into an 8x8 inch square pan.
Bake @ 350 degrees for 18-20 minutes or until the old toothpick in the center comes out clean!

He's not getting older...he's getting better

To the incredible man in my life- who happened to turn 46 today! I've been blessed to spend 30 of his birthdays with him (we were high school hearts :) Through all of these years he's taught me so much about faithfulness, unconditional love and perseverance (without complaining). I pray this day would be filled with all he holds dear: the presence of God, loved ones and sweet memories.
Happy Birthday, Old Man!
I love you!
