So where are the brownies??? I could eat brownies as a main course!

I had some soup from the freezer, but I made a small batch of brownies, to test an idea for a batch I will be making for Christmas day. I only made a 1/4 recipe, baking it in a loaf pan, with about 1/4 the base area of a 9 x 13 pan. What I did was make the caramel to put in between the two layers a butterscotch, rather than plain caramel, and it was delicious. At first, I wasn't sure it would be good with chocolate, but then I remembered a number of chocolate bourbon recipes that were delicious, so why not add the scotch!

What's going on at your house and is anyone baking brownies?

"Wilma" did a fine job of searing the SV rib eye and the little casseroles are LP's famous Mushroom Gratin.

My 18-hour chuck roast came out nice and tender, although a little dry. A dip into au jus took care of that. Sides were garlic mash, and some Green Giant cheesy broc.

I have yet to find a quiche recipe I really like. Even blind baking the crust before filling it didn't make the bottom dry enough. Still tasty enough.

The closest I got to brownies was the cup of hot cocoa I'm sipping on now.

I've never eaten quiche. Instead, I make frittatas, crustless quiches in a way.

I love a classic Quiche Loraine and was really pleased with one I made recently.

I used a refrigerated crust with mine.

Try brushing the crust with a beaten egg before blind baking. It will create a seal that will prevent the crust from getting soggy.
