Frequently, I have people suggest that I create a cookbook with all of the recipes that I share on my "other" blog. I mentioned to a friend that I was going to share them on a separate blog that would make it easier to find them again in the future and her response was "Well, it's about time!" First, I must thank the many wonderful friends that I've been blessed with... friends who are great cooks and willing to generously share their recipes. While my great friends and I love to cook, we go from one extreme to the other...keep things simple or go that extra mile to make things special or just plain fun!
The recipes that I create on my own usually come while I'm standing at the baking center in my kitchen covered to my nose in a flour shower or splattered butter or cocoa dust... not the best time to write things down. But, I'm going to try to write them down more often, photograph the pretty stuff and share all that I can!
My "secret brownie" recipe is my most requested. It's the only recipe that I don't share. Years ago, when I was a newlywed, a friend's mother had a secret recipe that was to die for, that she never shared with anyone. Tasting the coveted recipe was always a special treat, something to look forward to! I decided way back then that one day, if I ever came up with a "perfect" recipe of my own, I'd keep it as my secret until the day I died. Then, once I died, it would be printed on the back of the program of my funeral services. I created my secret brownies in about 1982 and to this day, they are still my secret. Want the recipe? Come to my funeral! Until that day, I'm happy to bake the brownies for anyone or any occasion upon request!
You won't get my secret brownie recipe here on the blog, but I promise to share lots and lots of other great ones, plus some fun kitchen tips and ideas to make your own "sentiments from the kitchen"! Enjoy!
