"Do not yield to discouragement in the face of difficulties and do not abandon yourselves to false solutions which often seem the easiest way to overcome problems. Do not be afraid to make a commitment, to face hard work and sacrifice, to choose the paths that demand fidelity and constancy, humility and dedication. Be confident in your youth and its profound desires for happiness, truth, beauty and genuine love! Live fully this time in your life so rich and so full of enthusiasm."
"Let us look with greater hope to the future; let us encourage one another on our journey."

Mmm-Mmm Better Brownies (but we consider them the best!)

Here is the promised brownie recipe ...and only 5 days later! :  )

It comes from allrecipes.com

1/2 c vegetable oil
1 c white sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
1/2 c flour
1/3 c cocoa powder
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt

  • Preheat oven to 350
  • Grease 9x9 baking pan
  • In medium bowl mix oil, sugar, and vanilla
  • Beat in eggs
  • Combine in seperate  bowl, flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt
  • Gradually stir into egg mixture until well blended
  • Spread batter evenly into prepared pan
  • Bake 20 - 25 minutes, or until brownie begins to pull away from edge of pan
  • Let cool before cutting (if you can wait that long!!!!)
We love these Brownies!  We needed the recipe because we had another that did not work out and we then had the cocoa powder to use.  What a great find!
We hope you enjoy them as much as our family does!
