"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

This is my Mom's fav. She got it from her sis-in-law,my Aunt Marilyn. It just isn't Mom's B-Day without it! Whenever that question came up about why the Texas Brownies were so Big, Aunt Marilyn would respond: "Cuz we all know everything's Bigger in Texas"! Yes, the brownies are Bigger! LOL
