Sometimes, it takes chocolate to turn things around. A brownie recipe labeled as the ‘Best-Ever’ should have that game-changing power. And I needed these brownies, the subject of today’s Tuesdays with Dorie challenge to lift me out of a black mood.
The day started at 5 a.m. when I managed to break a spindle on the stairway. Later, I realized, at the half-way point, that I lacked the most important ingredient in an expensive recipe- an ingredient that can only be ordered online. Then I walked to the ATM machine to find it out of order, locked myself out of the house, and burnt my arm reaching in the oven. And I lost one of my favorite earrings.
It’s fair to say I was skeptical that these brownies would be the best ever. But I had enough faith in Dorie to give them a try.
