Guest Post: The Queen Mommy/Hershey's Best Brownies

Prior to my husband's recent accident, we had planned to spend the last 3 weeks of Feb. in Florida enjoying sunshine and fellowship with special friends. We cancelled that trip, but I had already been planning on sharing some guest posts with you while I had planned to be gone.  Every Tuesday this month I will present to you to a special blogging friend. (BTW - my hubs is recovering miraculously! Hallelujah!)

{I'm rather partial to this first gal...}

I'd like to introduce you all to someone that I've known since the very day she was born...my very own daughter, Debbie Jo,

She's an amazing gal and my hero in so many ways. She's taught me more in life than she'll ever know. I love her dearly and am so pleased & proud to share her with you here. She sorta 'bugged' me til I finally began blogging...'my wind beneath my wings'.

I also wanted to share this link to one of Deb's recent posts...very interesting info.

Take it away Debber.....

Hello to all my mom's blogging buds....
I'm Debbie Taylor, author of Finding Grace & Glory in a messy life story , a Right-Brained woman who loves God, her husband, and her three children. When I'm not washing dishes or laundry or playing tea party with my daughters, I can be found blogging, journaling, or reading. I am a devoted fan of coffee & tea and enjoy interacting with other Christian wives & moms. I write about family & home, faith & food, marriage & parenting...

This is a favorite dessert - and it's chocolate! Simple to make and so easy to eat.....and eat.
brownies Pictures, Images and Photos


1/2 cup vegetable oil or melted butter
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
1/2 cup unsifted all purpose flour
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa (I love using Dutch processed cocoa!)
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9-inch square pan. (Put on some coffee while you're at it, cuz these babies are awesome!)

Blend oil or melted butter, sugar and vanilla in large mixing bowl. Add the eggs and beat well with a spoon. In a separate bowl, sift the dry ingredients together. Gradually stir into the egg mixture. Add nuts if desired.

Spread in greased 9 inch square pan. Bake 20-25 minutes or until edges pull away from the sides of the pan. Allow to cool.

Or not. Feel free to grab a fork and start eating around the edges.
These are fantastic without frosting, but you can frost at will!

Thanks for sharing Debber!! Please be sure to stop by and visit her blog.
