Happy Birthday Hubby!

I love the sign, made with loads of love! Maddie spent hours on this!

Pumpkin shaped pancakes! Yum! Janet sent me this link for halloween foods. I didn't make pumpkin flavored pancakes but I did use the idea for the shape! Maybe next week I will try the spicy pumpkin pancakes!

But the best part was this!

We treated Don to an afternoon at the Movies! The Nightmare Before Christmas!!!
It's back and its in 3D. Maddie and I sat there singing the entire show. Can you tell this Movie is a family favorite! We even own the soundtrack!

This cracks me up. It looks like a pagan ritual! But really it is birthday brownies! Not at all homemade but very, very yummy! I think they were much better than my recipe! I need better recipe of brownies, any one have one?

UPDATE! keep the recipes coming and I will post them! Kimmy if you read this I need the no pudge brownies!

Here is Christie's favorite brownie recipe!


From Cooks’ Illustrated

1 cup pecans or walnuts, chopped medium (optional)
1¼ cups white flour
½ tsp salt
¾ tsp baking powder
6 ounces unsweetened chocolate
12 Tbsp (1½ sticks) unsalted butter
2¼ cups sugar
4 large eggs
1 Tbsp vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 325.

Melt chocolate and butter in double boiler. When smooth, remove from heat and whisk in sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, whisking until thoroughly combined.

Whisk flour, salt, and baking powder. Add to chocolate mixture in 3 additions, stirring until batter is smooth.

Bake in a 9x13 pan 30-35 minutes.

Brownie recipe? Did you say you need a brownie recipe?! Oh yes, I have one for you. It's a Cooks Illustrated recipe. They are amazing. And better yet, it makes a 9x14 pan. I'll email it to you right now.

Happy Birthday, Don! What a great day you guys had. I love Maddie's sign and everything.
