Baked French Toast
With a few modifications, this recipe made phenomenal baked French toast. I took some suggestions by other reviewers. I started with fresh French bread and didn't think about leaving it to stale or dry out in the oven. I'm fairly certain that the original recipe is calling for stale bread because it just seems like an overload of liquid. Anyway, I sliced the loaf into 1.5" thick slices on the diagonal. Then I only used 6 eggs, 1/2 c half and half, and 1/2 c milk (only had skim). Kept the vanilla and spices the same. I dipped each slice in the liquid on both sides and wedged them into a 9x13 baking pan, left overnight to soak. I had some liquid leftover and just spooned it over the middle of thicker pieces. In the morning, I melted only 4 T butter and 3/4 c brown sugar for the sauce, which was more than enough. Topped mine with chopped pecans and baked in the oven for about 40 minutes. Served w/fresh blueberries. A bit hit w/my boyfriend! I'll definitely be making this again for special occasions.

Brooke's Best Bombshell Brownies
Amazing and easy brownies! I made a few modifications based on ingredients I had on hand and personal preferences. I used dark chocolate cocoa powder, and the result might be too rich and bitter for some but was just right for me. Also substituted all the AP flour with 100% whole wheat flour -- my boyfriend couldn't tell the difference. I coated the semi-sweet chocolate chips with some flour like one reviewer suggested to prevent the chips from sinking. Next time I want to try using yogurt in place of 1/2 the butter like another reviewer mentioned. Either way, you can't fail with Brooke's bombshell brownies!
