I just bought 3 sets of these cute little melamine appetizer plates at Target on Wednesday and am trying to decide which ones could stay in use and not look too Christmasy. Maybe use the two snowflake ones and put away the tree/ornament/gift ones? I’m not sure about the candy cane striped. They are questionable.
These brownies are simple. You can use your favorite brownie mix if you have one on hand or use this recipe-which is rich and fudgey and uses both cocoa and melted semi sweet chocolate. (You know it’s fudgey when the recipe calls for lining the pan with parchment or foil).
This recipe came from Everyday Food magazine, which I adore and have written about several times. Sadly, I just got a notice in the mail a few weeks ago that after a long stent, Everyday Foods is no longer in print. There will be recipes and articles Everyday Food-related available on the Martha Stewart website, and features in other magazines of hers. However, the half sheet, monthly recipe-filled magazine has come to an end. I am sad. Many of my favorite recipes in the past decade have come from this publication. Thankfully, I have about 3 years of them stacked in my house, needing to be sorted out and used, and books filled with years of great recipes from the magazine. (And most of them are available online).
