And welcome to my odd little world where I cook and bake my way through some of my favorite stand-by recipes as well as some new recipes I've found. All of the recipes I post will be delicious and none of them will cost you an arm and a leg.
To start, I wanted to share a recipe that holds a very special place in my heart: Bullett Brownies. I grew up on a dead end street with kids my age and more mothers than one person should ever have. One of my other mothers used to make these brownies, named for her mother who developed the recipe herself. These brownies are unlike any brownies I have ever tried before. They have a crust on top with a fudgy middle. I hope you enjoy them as much as I have for most of my life!
|Any good brownie recipe should start with Hershey's Cocoa and melted butter!|
|My measuring spoons that came with my first cook book when I was 10. They're still my favorites!|
|The batter comes out very thick.|
|Look at that delicious crust. Mmmmm the perfect snack!|

1 teaspoon vanilla extract
