Put A Brownie On It


I was about to go see my friend, and I realized this would be a nice opportunity to share one of my crocheted kitchen towels with someone really special. But then I thought: this looks a bit lonesome... like it wants a purpose.


So I put a brownie on it.

That's better.

And if you are looking for something indulgent, tasty, easy, and slightly tweaked for the health(ier)... then try this:

Get a box of Trader Joe's Brownie Truffle mix... it's an additive free, no dyes mix, and makes really luscious dessert. I prepare it with a light cooking oil (4 ounces,) but this time I finely grated half of a medium zucchini into my measuring cup, and then added oil to make it 4 ounces of zukes and oil. The rest was as directed on the box... they came out as yummy as ever, less greasy, slightly more cake-like, and definitely moist. Just good, you know? One advantage of having seven in the house, frequent visitors, and special friends: baked goods get divided up, and disappear fast!

  1. That looks beautiful... good enough to eat. :) I have a box of that mix in my cupboard, I will try that this weekend. There are only two in my house, but baked goods still disappear alarmingly rapidly here, too.

  4. I think you have stumbled on the cure for EVERYTHING. Got a problem? Just put a brownie on it, and things will be instantly better. I think I intuited this from an early age - it would explain my lifelong obsession with all things brownie.

  7. I am loving all of this consensus we are enjoying over brownies. Wouldn't it be great if we could meet, in person, and discuss this further, over brownies, of course!
