Classic Brownies

Thanksgiving Week!  On Thursday I'm planning to make Dorie's "Pumpkin Stuffed with Everything Good" from Around My French Table.  But it's Tuesday today and I need to bake!

Our house has been in a bit of an uproar as we are having a new hardwood floor installed in the living room.  What with the chaos of home improvement, I haven't been able to bake much.  Once I got home from work today, I decided to make the Russian Grandmother Apple Cake from Baking.  I made the dough, and only then noticed that it needed to be chilled for a couple of hours.  It's in the fridge now but after working all day and dealing with home improvement project, I didn't feel like staying up late cutting apples.   So I threw together some Classic Brownies:  quick, easy, delicious.  And a reward for hard work!

I'll be baking quite a bit during the next few days, but the brownies were definitely a good "rewind" choice.


  1. Look perfect. Brownies are always good.

  2. You can't beat the classic brownie. These look really good. We're having the hardwood floor in one of our rooms refinished this week. It's a stinky mess and I feel your "renovation pain".

  3. Take pitures of your new floor..I want to see!
    Great choice on baking the brownies..you can't go wrong with a healthy dose of Chocolate:)
