Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Mom swore by this brownie recipe, and I
was a teenager before I encountered "box mix" brownies--
which can't hold a candle to these made from scratch. Mom
had this recipe in her files and gave it to me when I
complained that my Baker's brownies didn't taste the same
as hers. Apparently, the recipe on the box of chocolate
squares has changed.
