homemade heaven

Have you ever made homemade brownies? I hadn't until a few weeks ago. And now I don't think I can ever go back to a mix again. Oh man, they are good. Yesterday, I made a quick half batch to welcome the big kids home from school and the little ones up from naps. Find the recipe here. You won't be sorry.


  1. I've never made homemade brownies. But I don't make cakes from boxes anymore..... it's almost easier and YUMMIER to make them from scratch! If off sugar right now, but I'll def try the brownies when I can have a little treat in February.

  2. yum! homemade brownies are surprisingly easy. I made them for the first time in ks and haven't gone back since. you are right they are soooo much better! And yes- we should go thrifting i will tell you my tricks. (which aren't too clever)

  3. I have. I took a chocolate class years ago and the teacher shared her recipe that she used for catering. They are delicious and I make them a lot.

    I never knew you could make brownies any other way than scratch until I went to college. My mom's recipe is still a bazillion times better than any box i've tried and almost easier too.
    Trader Joe's mix comes close so I do keep that one on hand for "emergencies".
    Butter, chocolate, flour, sugar, vanilla. Yum.
