Who doesn’t love brownies? Brownies are my favorite dessert…..I think. Especially when they are topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream! Many years ago, I had a brownie recipe that was amazing. I had tried so many recipes and finally came up with the perfect brownie. OH, yes I did! I took some samples down to the deli that was located in our office building. I had the idea that maybe the employees would want to buy my brownies. Wellllll, it just so happened that a distributor for Southland Corporation was making a delivery that day. He sampled the brownies and called me. He asked for some more samples and few days later, asked if I could give him 72 dozen of my brownies!!!! They wanted to carry my brownies in San Diego County 7-11 stores!!!! I was stunned. I was working a full time job and wondered just HOW I was going to do this. That was the first problem. The second problem was that I would be required to find commercial kitchen space. I could not bake in a home kitchen. I frantically started looking for commercial kitchen space. I couldn’t find any place that would rent out their kitchen . I was so disappointed and I regretfully told the Food Distributor my disappointing news. He too was disappointed and I lost my opportunity. I have never forgotten that. It was a huge opportunity!!! Well, I lost that brownie recipe several years ago….I have not been able to duplicate it, to this day. But now I am on a quest…..to once again make the best brownie. This one pictured here, is good…..but no where near my old, lost recipe. So I must start over…my search is on…I have lots of experimenting to do! This should make my friends very happy to be my little guinea pigs. So I will most likely be posting lots of brownie pics…good and bad. So bake on Sugarbundle……BAKE ON!!!!
