"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

Directions:
In a microwave safe glass bowl, melt the butter and unsweetened chocolate in the microwave. Stir until smooth; set aside. In a medium size bowl, beat the eggs, sugar and vanilla until fluffy and pale yellow. Add the cooled chocolate mixture; blend well. Stir in the flour and salt; mix well. Stir in the chocolate chips. Spread the batter into a greased 8-inch square baking pan. Bake in a preheated 350 oven for about 30 minutes. Be careful not to overcook; the top should feel just barely firm. Cool and dust with powdered sugar (optional).

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This recipe was published in the local newspaper a few months after I moved to Oak Park. It was from the Silverland's Baking Company, which had just opened in Forest Park. Since then, they have grown into a huge mail order business. I believe this was their original brownie recipe. These brownies are very dense and chocolaty rich. I have also added nuts to the recipe on occasion.
