Brownies

Oh, so yummy and so easy to make. The recipe here comes from the 1983, 12th edition of the Fannie Farmer Cookbook: 3 oz (85g) unsweetened chocolate, 6 T butter, 300 g sugar, 3 eggs, 1/4 T salt, 105 g flour and 1.5 teaspoons vanilla, mixed then baked for 40 min at 350 oven. Be sure and butter the pan-9 in square, before you start. I have skipped the nuts since some in my family do not like brownies with nuts. Cool for about 15 minutes then cut into 16 in squares.

Yes, there are a lot of cookbooks out there, but the Fannie Farmer Cookbook is one of my favorites. My 1983 version has become ragged, but I still use it today. Too bad there are not new editions published. Mine and the most recent version (published in 1996) was written by Marion Cunningham who died in 2012 at the age of 90.

What to do with ripe bananas

I never want to throw out ripe bananas. I found a cake recipe: Banana Chocolate-Chip Tea Cake: easy to make and delicious. The NYTimes cooking site is one my go-to site for cooking and my apologies to those of you who do not subscribe who cannot look at the recipe to make this. But, you could probably google the recipe’s name to find something similar.

Now, I am using a better camera than what I have with my iPhone. You probably can see the difference.
