The Bug and I were hungry for a sweet treat today. I hadn't made my yummy blonde brownies for awhile, so I decided to whip them up to cure our sweet craving. Not to mention I was chilly and baking is the best thing to warm up a chilly house.
We rounded up the necessities and got to work.

|First, grab a little helper like so, and cream the butter, vanilla, and brown sugar.||(He likes to bake in his underwear. Actually, he likes to do everything in his underwear.)|
|Mix flour, baking powder, and salt together.|
Next mix in eggs.
|Nothing like fresh Iowa farm eggs. Thank you to our super good friends for these brown beauties!|
Blend in the flour mixture....

|The BEST part of baking goodies!|
|Add the chocolate chips.|
|Stir 'em up!|
|Spread 'em out!|
|Eat 'em up!|
|Of course, they always taste better out of the middle of the pan!|
