Best Brownies

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2013
I've made these brownies three times and now that I've mastered them, I must say they are magnificent! The key is to start checking them at a little under 25min - if they cook too long they will be drier and more cake-like - I like mine moist, and these came out perfectly! The frosting is terrific, but your butter needs to be very soft - even partially melted (I put my butter in the oven to soften after the brownies came out), and I'd suggest starting with 1/2 cup of confectioners sugar and adding from there, because as some have mentioned the frosting can come out dry. Instead of melting the butter in a saucepan, I microwaved it in a large bowl, then added my ingredients right to that. Delicious!

Roasted Asparagus and Mushrooms

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2011
Wow, this was really good! I've always roasted my asparagus in just olive oil, salt, and pepper...I never would have thought to add mushrooms or rosemary (not always a fan), but it really is delicious. Even my husband can make this, it's so easy! We did have to take it out of the oven a few minutes earlier than the time listed, but the asparagus we used was very skinny (which I prefer). We also used dried rosemary instead of fresh. I think next time I'll use the fresh, and try adding garlic like some other reviewers did. Thanks for the recipe, this will definitely be in our regular rotation.
