Kevin: I hear Angela’s party will have double-fudge brownies. It will also have Angela.

My Mother in Law has been here less than 4 hours and she's already called me fat. I don't think of myself as fat...until she says so. Hell, she complained about how I looked when I was pregnant, even. This is just ONE of her many complaints about how unattractive I am. It makes me want to cry but they'd probably be fat tears. It seems fitting that I'm posting a recipe tonight, anyway. Since I'm fat and all.

I decided to try the Cream Cheese Brownies recipe in Everyday Food. Everyday Food is a fantastic magazine with easy recipes and step by step photographs. Hey. Wait. That sounds like...nah. I hate cream cheese, by the way, but it always seems to make it into my baked goods. I altered the recipe a bit, of course, as I always do. I made it way better if I do say so myself. But still, big ups to Martha Stewart - that mag is fab.
But these things have to be shipped, you see? And I do not like the thought of semi-moist, (Why do so many people hate the word MOIST? It doesn't bother me one bit...) half baked brownies, possibly sitting in the post office. So, I cooked them a little longer, which made the 'white' part more brownish. And that made me sad. I have a thing about colors and what should look like what. It's the designer in me.
I have to say, these brownies turned out great. Make 'em and you won't regret it. Then you can be fat. Like me. ~sigh~

It's a pretty package. And I'm sure you can't even taste the cream cheese!

What does the tag say? I know it doesn't say what it looks like to me, which is "made just poo."

At least she didn't say you were a dead ringer for ROSEANNE.

Let me know when she's in town again and I'll come over. We can be fat together, and then sit on her and eat pie.*

*that's not supposed to sound dirty.
