Greetings from soggy Kuwait. I was grateful for the nice drizzly rain the past couple of days, but last nite we had a storm. As a result, we had a few leaks through metal windowframes and a trickle in the kids room so had to rearrange their room since it was right above their bunk beds. Homes in Kuwait are always settling and cracking from the heat, so until it rains, you never know where you might have a leak. We've been home all day and I've been crocheting.
Yesterday I made my favorite brownie recipe. So easy and turns out perfect every time. Great with a dollop of vanilla ice cream.
The knitted dishrag is from my cousin, Gwen. The bear salt and pepper shakers were a gift from my friend Mona who is now in Lebanon. And the plate with pink roses came as a set with the cake stand and cake server which was a gift from my friend, Sana, for my birthday in February. Here's the brownie recipe:
Deep Dish Brownies
3/4 cup butter, melted
3/4 cup sugar
1-1/2 tsps vanilla extract
3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 8 inch square pan. In a large bowl, blend melted butter, sugar and vanilla. Beat in eggs one at a time. Combine the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt. Gradually blend into the egg mixture. Spread the batter into prepared pan. Bake in preheated oven for 40-45 minutes, or until brownies begin to pull away from the sides of the pan. Cool and cut into squares.
Enjoy! Hope you are safe, warm and dry in your part of the world. Blessings, Tammy
