I spent hours yesterday browsing food blogs. I wasn't looking for anything in particular and I came across a blog that is my new favorite, For the Love of Cooking. I saw these brownies and knew that I had to make them. All of my favorites - coconut, pecans and chocolate. I decided to make them and send them to work with my husband (so I don't eat them all myself). I did keep 3 for home. They are very rich and delicious. I added some chocolate chips to the topping...you can never have too much chocolate. I think I may cut the topping recipe in half next time. It was a lot! Not that it wasn't yummy and I am one that usually believes that more is better, but it was a lot of pecans and coconut. I don't think it was all necessary.
I am a kindergarten teacher living in Kansas, though my heart will always be in Texas. I spend my "extra" time cooking, baking, reading, planning for my classroom and spending time with my son and husband. My newest obsession is Zumba. I have been teaching since October and absolutely LOVE it!!! My twelve-year-old son, Cameron loves to cook with me and has considered being a chef when he grows up. We spend a lot of quality time together in our teeny-tiny kitchen.
