What’s for dinner?

I always hated that question. Still do. At one time I had someone to share in the decision-making process (which was really: “What do you want?” “I dunno. What do you want?” ad infinitum). Now that it’s just me, it’s even more of a bother. How does that work?!

I bought the cookbook Cook Yourself Thin, mainly because I love the show (it’s on Lifetime BTW), and the recipes seemed easy. And quick. And healthier, not gag healthy gag.

I decided I HAD to have brownies, and the recipe I have of my Mom’s is just OK. So I found this recipe online, but for the first time I doctored it. I have never doctored a recipe before! I used salted butter instead of unsalted, omitted the cocoa powder and salt, added 1 tsp. vanilla and some chopped pecans. I’m interested to taste them.
