Best Brownies
These are dangerously addictive. I must have them all the time, lol. But seriously, a couple of things. 1) the frosting will look and feel too dry and cracked at first. Add it to the brownies immediately after they come out of the oven, and keep smushing around the frosting every once in a while for about 30 minutes. Eventually it will settle into a thick fudge like top. 2) 35 min. will not hurt them, but I found 30 min to give the brownies a far superior texture. 3) The second time I doubled the frosting-it makes the brownies SOOOO amazing. 4) when I doubled the frosting recipe, instead of doing 6 tablespoons of cocoa, since I was short on it, I used 3 tablespoons cocoa, and melted 3 tablespoons of chocolate chips with the butter. I think this made the frosting even fudgier. Anyway, this is a must try recipe. If you think, like me, that you have tried and tasted all brownie recipes, you must try this one, and be amazed. My new favorite go-to brownie. Thanks Angie!!!

Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes
I thought, when I picked out this recipe one evening, that it had to be too simple. It was too few ingredients. How could something tasty be this simple and have that few ingredients? The only thing that swayed me was the sheer number of delighted reviews. So I tried it. And it took a while, but it was easy. And the brown spotting on top looked fantastic. It was delicious. And everyone loved it. It is now a family staple-and my older brother's new favorite food. I'm sending him the recipe right now! Thanks CathyM!
