Whatever Brownies

Rowdy said my blog must be getting boring to have someone un-follow me and that I should put more recipes on here. 
I was like, "Why?  Isn't that why we have a food blog?" 
He said, "Ya....but you women like recipes and you don't ever update that one." 
And I was like, "Ya...well how come YOU don't update the food blog?" 
And he was like, "Whatever.  You should post more recipes on the main one." 
And I was like, "Whatever. Maybe I will...but not because you said so."
And then we totally made-out because that's what whatever means around here.

Here are my brownies.  I love 'em a lot.  Especially since they don't come out of a box and I don't have to lie that they really don't come out of a box. 
What?  You don't lie about that? 

Carrie's Famous Whatever Brownies
(the kind that make you want to show your love)

1 cup dark or semisweet chocolate chips
2 Tbsp butter
1/2 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 eggs
1 1/2 tsp vanilla (La Vencedora is my most fave)
1 cup sugar
1 3 oz package softened cream cheese
1 beaten egg


Grease an 8x8 pan and turn the oven to 350 degrees. Heat the chocolate and butter in the micowave in 30 second/stir increments until melted.  Cool and set aside.  Mix flour, baking powder, and salt in a bowl and set aside.  In a mixer beat 2 eggs and 1 tsp of the vanilla.  Gradually add 3/4 cup of the sugar and beat until thick and lemon colored.  Add dry ingredients, mix, and then add the chocolate and mix.  Stop here if you only want chocolate brownies and bake for 30-45 minutes.

To add the cream cheese swirl:  Beat cream cheese and the leftover 1/4 cup sugar, leftover 1/2 tsp vanilla, and 1 beaten egg.  Spread on top of the chocolate and swirl into it with knife.  The chocolate mixture is heavier than the cream cheese, so the swirl won't be perfect.  Bake for 35-45 minutes (less time for a chewier brownie).

You can kiss me now.

Unfollowing must be in the air... I posted about my dog dying and two people stopped following. I mean seriously. It wasn't that much of a downer post!

The brownies look awesome. I will make them this very weekend...

Jocelyn Christensen said...

LOL, that was hilarious. And I didn't even get to the recipe part yet, because instantly my husband and I started making out...because our codeword for making out is "brownies". Shh...don't tell anyone that.

I have been reading your blog for a while now. so lets just make me the replacement for the person that
un-followed you.

iamwoman said...

get a room? gee whiz. We can barely make time for a date! Hense the make-out sessions in between blogging and brownie making.

Hello Lisa! Thanks for taking the place of that silly un-follower. She has absolutely no idea how much cooler you are;)

And sorry about the salivating girls. In more ways than one. *wink*wink*

Would it be bad to give the recipe to my daughter to make? I won't tell her what it means, obviously, it's just her week to cook. And darn! they look delish.

I have to try these. Any brownie made with cream cheese has to be gooood!

yum yum yum :)

Serene is my name, not my life! said...

Oh, no worries. I lost a reader too. And my stats have been slowly dropping, probably because I've had trouble getting around the blogosphere with all our computer problems.

And my blog has been kind of suckish lately.

But I just can't seem to find my blogging mojo!
