So, what do you make when you're dying for something chocolatey and the only form of chocolate in the house is cocoa powder? (Did I mention that my car was towed to the shop tonight? Yeah.) Obviously, you make the best cocoa brownies. Ever.
This is the first time I've baked something other than a potato in my new oven -- I can't believe I waited so long to bake! And since I'll probably be home all weekend without the use of my car, maybe I'll finally make a cherry pie with all the cherries I picked on the farm a few weeks ago and was forced to freeze when the oven kicked it.
These really are the best brownies I've ever had, but if you make them, heed my warning: Just eat one. I greedily ate two (what was I thinking?!) and almost instantly regretted it. All that richness... I just might have to spend all my free, car-less time exercising to work it off.
