Brownies from Scratch
Last night I decided that the incoming snow was as good a reason as any to attempt to make homemade brownies. And by homemade, I mean from scratch...no mix.
I found a good-sounding recipe over at Goodlife Eats and gave it a try.
The brownies turned out wonderful. They were chocolately and a little fudgy. For the chocolate chunks called for in the recipe, I cut up part of a dark chocolate bar. For the extract called for, I used 1/2 tsp of vanilla. I sprinkled half of the brownies with a little sea salt before baking them. This was a success, although I think I prefer the plain ones. I don't like much fuss when it comes to brownies.
