The Brownie Queen


I think my daughter’s on to something. Every time she goes anywhere, she brings brownies..and they are always REALLY, REALLY good.

Now mind you, these aren’t “homemade-homemade”..these are from a box, but trust me, the brand she finally settled on as her go-to brownie mix is the result of years of “research” and testing.😛

yes, dark chocolate.

And so this is what she’s famous for, brownies that are chocolatey and smooth, dense but not fudge, moist but not wet. This girl knows how to make them-

she is the undisputed brownie queen.

It reminds me of an old neighbor who was a busy mother and physician. She made pie like nobody’s business with a crust that was just this side of perfection.

Her pie was her claim to cooking fame.

Some of us are always trying to be perfect at absolutely everything- it’s exhausting and ultimately unattainable. What a brilliant idea to focus on (and get really good at) one thing and make it our signature offering.
