The busy fall season continues for TRB and this past weekend was no exception. TRB‘s sister, Laura, celebrated her “quarter-life crisis” (a.k.a. 25th birthday) with a bang — a party with friends at PS 450 in Manhattan on Saturday night and a family surprise party at home on Sunday. Of course, the occasion called for some homemade baked goods courtesy of TRB.
Since TRB has been cookie-happy lately in honor of her sister Crista’s recent engagement, a change of pace was in order. And, what better way to celebrate a milestone birthday than with oooey gooey chocolate-y brownies? (Really, TRB can’t think of a better way, well, except maybe for some pecan pie, but we digress. More on that to come around Thanksgiving…)
Admittedly, TRB isn’t a fan of orange in any context — juice, fruit, color or flavor. But, the brownie portion of the recipe definitely seemed to be a fit. And, since TRB‘s coffee frosting is practically legendary in NY and NJ, it seemed the perfect way to top this one off.
For those brownie purist party-goers, TRB decided to leave some plain.
