This recipe is actually what fueled my new obsession with food blogs. I was looking for pumpkin recipes and found this blog, Culinary in the Desert. The recipe for Pumpkin-Swirl Brownies looked unbelievable so I started browsing and I found many other recipes that I knew I would have to try. I doubled the recipe and it make gigantic, thick, rich brownies that were loved by most that tried them. The cayenne pepper gives an unexpected heat that made me want more. My 3rd graders actually loved them and requested them for a special reward day we had planned. I made two huge batches of these over the holidays.
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.
