    Ah! The quest for the perfect brownie continues, I see! That brownie and glass of milk is just such a pleasant temptation! Isn’t Donna Hay something? She really is a phenome Down Under! Watch out Martha Stewart!

    The brown sugar is an interesting ingredient for brownies. (I love that first pic of the brownie on top of the glass of milk.) I am posting a coffee inspired brownie tomorrow. (Great minds…!) :)

    Your photos are perfect, Veronica! And the brownie looks moist and delicious. I’ve never made her brownies. These look every bit as good (if not better) than my favorite old recipe!

    I’m not sure there is anything better in this world than a warm, homemade brownie with a big glass of milk!
