Brownies to “bark” for

My daughter’s school is having a “bark” sale tomorrow.  They are selling baked goods to raise money for the SPCA.  As an animal enthusiast, this is a cause I support enthusiastically – as do both of my dogs.  And if you contribute you get to wear pajamas to school.  I made my classic brownies – everyone loves them and my daughter helped.  (If you think that making brownies from scratch is too difficult, it should tell you something that my 5 year old did most of the work!)  Here is the recipe – we doubled it in a pan 14 x 10 1/2 inches.  (A single batch will work in a 9 x 9 pan.)


  • 2 squares Baker’s Unsweetened Baking Chocolate
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 350.  Melt chocolate, butter and sugar over low heat.  Remove from heat and let cool for 10 minutes.  Stir in flour, eggs and vanilla.  Transfer to a  baking pan lined with parchment paper and bake for 22 minutes.  Remove from oven and let sit in pan for at least an hour before cutting.  Here they are cooling:

I love to cook and love to eat. I work full time and have a family so managing good meals during the week requires organization. I'm hoping to share my weekly menu plans and recipes to make things a little easier for those who want to follow along.
