A recipe from the newspaper that became a picnic staple.

These brownies are a family and friends favorite -- a must-make whenever I'm baking. ~ Marg

This is my 'go-to' dessert recipe. Sometimes I place pecan halves on the top of the brownies for a gourmet look. ~Ann

A decadent combination of moistened cake and feathery frosting. Passed down from M.O.M.'s kitchen to ours. Be sure to make enough to feed a herd! These will go fast! ~Leigh
