Sometimes Pancakes, but mostly brownies

It occurred to me today that I had not shared a recipe in a while.

Today I fix that!

I love a good brownie.  Actually, I adore a good brownie and the best recipe for Brownies is one I make from scratch.

Box mixes are kind of gross to me, plus they have added things in the ingredient list that serve as preservatives...

If you make a batch of brownies, they should be good enough to eat in two days and not have leftovers for forever and eternity.

The following recipe is one I've used for about 20 years...seriously, 20! 

It uses Ghiradelli sweet ground chocolate and cocoa as a base.  This is a little on the pricey side when you first get it, but the up side is you can make multiple batches of brownies with a tin of it, and trust me, you won't be sorry after you have them the first time!

Besides, how can you go wrong with Ghiradelli!!!

Get some ice cream or whipped cream and enjoy!

Also, for the past few days I have been unable to comment on your comments because of a Firefox glitch.  I think I'm good again now.  I do appreciate your visits.

The slow road home...

I've mentioned before that Hwy 60 in New Mexico is my favorite road.

Route 66 gets all the attention, but 60 is where my heart is.


This is just north of where the Very Large Array of radio telescopes are...you know, the dishes...

The exempt tracks are for transporting the big antennae to their different spots.


 the dishes in the distance...right now they are close together...but not for long...

 

the view driving home on the slow road....
