Chocolate Fridays - Birthday Brownies

On Wednesday my best friend had a birthday. Cake is not good enough for this type of occasion. This occasion warrants her favorite dessert- Ina Garten's recipe for Outrageous Brownies. They are the only brownie recipe I will make anyways, because once you've found the perfect brownie recipe, what is the use of trying another one? That sounds like foodie sacriledge, but there it is... So, one of my presents to her was to gift the entire pan of brownies (minus the couple I used for this photo).

Happy Birthday to my best friend who sits on my front stoop when I want to rant about my bad week and who shakes her first at the world for me when I've had enough. Happy Birthday to my best friend who introduces me by talking about my blog (she is a born promoter) and who is my sewing & knitting class buddy (and witness to some obnoxious classmates that almost push me over the edge).

Happiest Birthday to You....And countless more.


  1. Best friends are a gift. This is a very delicious way to honor yours. : )

  2. Words cannot express how much I love these brownies, and how precious your friendship is to me!
    Who would have thought that my best friend would end up being my neighbor? What more proof does one need of God's infinite wisdom and grand plan?
    I love you girl! Wouldn't want to do without you and our fabulous adventures and weekly stoop meetings where we plan our futures, solve the problems of the world, rant, laugh, and scheme our latest projects!!

  3. I've been meaning to make these brownies for years, so thanks for the reminder! You are lucky to have such a good friend, and she is lucky to have you too!Happy labor day.

    1. Great info! I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I d on't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading.
