It's hard to believe I'm getting closer to a half-century mark today. Luckily, I've never been one to worry about getting older. I like birthday. Birthday is an excuse to eat cake and not feel guilty about it.

To celebrate another year of my life, I made lots of brownies to share with my friends, neighbors and students. These brownies are made from Valrhona Unsweetened Chocolate. They are dense, gooey and intense in flavor. This recipe is adapted from Joy of Baking.

Did I tell you chocolate is my favorite ingredient to work with. It makes everything taste better. :)
