We've had a mild fall so far temperature-wise, a somewhat disturbing trend in Vermont in recent years. But it's starting to feel like cooler. Turning on the oven for baking is a more appealing idea than it was a few weeks ago.
I don't believe I'd ever made brownies from scratch before. I got my recipe from How to Cook Everything: The Basics by Mark Bittman. They turned out well. The ladies both liked them. They might be nice with a scoop of vanilla ice cream next time.
