Remember those brown sugar brownies I blogged about not long ago? Here is what they are 'suppose' to look like. Still warm out of the oven, they were gooey and delicious! I know because I ate two. These were made with dark brown sugar and not 1/2 bag, not 1 bag, but 1-1/2 bags of milk chocolate chips. I learned that the best technique was to remove the pan from the heat after the butter has melted so it can be cooling as the brown sugar is melting and the other ingredients are added so that the chocolate chips do not melt.
In my goodies bag was two books (see below). I can't wait to see what suggestions they have to improve my cooking and, thus, my blogging
Recipe: Cheese Ball
2 - 8 oz. packages of plain cream cheese
1 bunch scallions, minced
1 4-6 oz. ham, finely chopped
1 package Ranch Dressing Mix (may use 2 packages for a spicier flavor)
McCormick's Steak Seasoning or a black pepper seasoning
Combine first four ingredients. Form into a ball or rectangle. Roll in the steak or black pepper seasoning.
Happy Birthday to me!
