And to sweeten the deal…

(NOTE: Five more entries and I’ll add an additional ten page critique!  Tell your friends…at least your writerly ones. Queries can be entered until Tuesday. I will post the results on Wed. July, 20th!)

I’m sad that some of you can’t participate in the Query and Critique Contest because your story isn’t ready.

Since I can’t share my time with you, I’ve decided to share something else.  My Grandma’s Homemade Brownies!  I wish I could  give you a plate of her world famous chocolate-on-chocolate deliciousness (Not an exaggeration, they rock MY world!), but her recipe will have to do:

1 Cup Butter
4 Tbsp. Cocoa
4 Eggs
2 Cups White Sugar
2 Cups Flour

Melt butter and cocoa together (I just do it in the microwave).  Beat eggs.  Add dry ingredients and cocoa/butter mixture.  Pour into a greased 9×13 pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes.

1/2 Cup Butter
4 Tbsp. Cocoa
8 oz. Softened Cream Cheese
4 Cups Powdered Sugar
4 Tbsp. Milk
2 Tsp. Vanilla

Melt butter and Cocoa together in the microwave.  Beat with cream cheese. Add Powdered Sugar, Milk, and Vanilla.  Frost while still warm.

Confession:  Sometimes I make the frosting and eat it.  It’s that good.
