That recipe was in my mother's ancient Canadian Living cookbook. I can't remember what it's called, but it has regional menus in it. My "copy" of that recipe is a printed-out version of the one my mum typed up to send to me during my first year in undergrad. I have made many variations on it, including multiple gluten-free versions.
Despite my attachment to that recipe, sometimes it's good to try something new.

So know that the following failure is mine and mine alone. I tried to make these, but I don't have a 9X9 pan. I do, however, have mini-muffin tins coming out my ears, and was planning to take them to a friend's, so two-bite brownies sounded just perfect.
Well, my loyal readers, if you decide to do as I say, make sure that you do as I did not, and properly grease the bloody pan. I didn't have any mini-muffin liners, so after (I thought) thoroughly greasing the pans with butter I plopped the batter right in. After baking it overflowed and ended up completely glued to the pan. It took freezing and extensive chiseling with a paring knife to remove them. They were a little pointy (but delicious).

In non-baking news, I've been having wrist pain on and off since I started my current job in May, and my fancy ergonomic keyboard arrived at work on Friday. I love it so much that I ordered one for myself (it was $35 on Amazon) along with a wireless mouse, both of which will, I hope, improve my overall blogging comfort. Plus the mouse is really cute and ingeniously packaged and designed, and the keyboard is big enough to place on my lap without it sliding about. Wheee!
