I am married to the sweetest guy on the planet. Everybody loves Tom. It sounds like a hit comedy show and sometimes I feel like Robert in “Everybody Loves Raymond.” Mostly, I feel very lucky to be sharing my life with this wonderful guy.

Lately, there have been long days at the office and Tom has worked 16 days in a row, and the week is not over yet. Last Saturday turned into Sunday as he worked 17 hours. Today I wanted to do a little something to brighten his day and decided to bake brownies. Like any healthy, all-American guy he loves brownies, even more than my cookies. So, I made a pan of brownies, plain. That is, without nuts. That’s the way he likes ‘em. To me, it’s not a brownie if it doesn’t have nuts but… to each his own. Either way, it’s a tasty brownie.

I cut this recipe out of a magazine about 15 years ago. I do not recall which magazine but it was likely Good Housekeeping or Better Homes & Gardens. Whenever I bring these brownies to a party someone always asks for the recipe. It’s not a chewy, moist brownie but more cake-y. Make them for 'your sweetest guy on the planet' and let me know what you think.
