I found a recipe for brownies the other day. Now, I've got shelves of cookbooks and loads of baking recipes, but this one I found I just had to try. The fact that I had everything in the house for them and I needed to make dessert for that evening had a wee bit to do with it too.

I can honestly say that these were the best brownies I've ever made and have ever tasted.

Now, I didn't use non-stick spray as Rachel does. I buttered the baking dish instead. I also did the optional chocolate chunks (dark cooking chocolate worked great).

So where can you find this really really really good recipe for brownies?

Right here, at Rachel's cooking blog. She's offered to mail me a bunch of different chilli peppers when she found out we can't get a lot of the really good ones down here in Oz, but I had to pass on that as AQIS (Australian Quarantine and Inspection Service --or something like that) would've stopped them suckers at the border! Oh well, thanks anyways.

I really will post something original of mine soon. Just gotta find the time in between all these naps I'm taking as I recover from staying up late to watch all the Tour stages live.

This recipe is soooooo much better than any box mix! Oh, just had an idea: Top it with my hot fudge sauce!

Rachel said...

Oh, I'm so flattered! Actually, I'm just thrilled you tried them and enjoyed them. Thanks for sharing!

Rachel: I've been told by the household down here that I can make them ANY time, no need to wait for special occasions.
