I always try to eat delicious food. Unfortunately I don't have that much money, so I have to cook a lot of it at home. But thats OK because I love cooking and I love eating at home with my wife. This is a website with my favorite recipes and a little bit of commentary.

Great Brownies

This recipe for brownies is my favorite. It comes from one of the scrub nurses at my hospital. Every once in a while she'll make a batch and they get gobbled quickly. The texture of the brownie is more like a flourless chocolate cake. Truly amazing!


Melt together in microwave one stick of butter and two squares of unsweetened chocolate (2 ounces). Add 2 eggs, 1 cup sugar, 1 t vanilla and 3/4 cup flour. Pour into a greased 9X9 inch pan and bake for 25 -30 minutes at 350.

Frosting -

Combine 1/2 stick butter and 1 1/2 T of cocoa powder. Melt in microwave. Add 1/4 cup buttermilk and microwave until it comes to a boil. Add 1/2 t vanilla and about 3 cups of powdered sugar.

I changed the recipe by adding 1 shot of rum to the dough and topping the finished product with pecan pieces.
