Gourmet Grilled Cheese Sandwiches
Needs way less mayo; only 1/4 cup and another 1 oz of cream cheese; also garlic powder, not garlic salt. Great sandwich!

MMMMM... Brownies
Made exactly as written. Definitely the best brownies ever. I did try to bake them in mini muffin tins as one reviewer suggested. Had to bake 13 - 15 minutes and then no matter what we tried, had a difficult time removed them from pan (pan had been greased). My suggestion is to use the mini muffin paper liners.
