The Best Brownies

The name doesn't lie! These brownies are honestly the best I have ever had. I actually got the recipe from Stacy Torfin a while back after she brought them over for our family. They really are so good!

1 ½ C. Flour
2 C. Sugar
1/3 C. Cocoa
Mix together then add;
3 eggs (beaten) stir lightly
While this is being done melt 2 cubes of butter in the microwave
Then add 1-1 ½ Tbsp. Vanilla (to the butter)
Pour into mixture and mix well
Add 1-2 large scoops of Marshmallow Cream and stir till swirled.
Pour in a 9x13 (sprayed) glass pan
Bake 350 degrees for 30 minutes

There you go! I like it with 2 scoops of mallow cream and they are best a bit under-baked, you know what I mean? I also like them a little thicker so I used a pan that was just a little smaller than a cake pan.

Peach Ice Cream

  • It's peach season here in the east so you can make this YUMMY treat with "nature's candy," fresh peaches! I cut this recipe in half and there was still too much for my counter-top ice cream maker, so we get to make more tonight! But I bet this would be perfect if you have a big ice cream maker that takes ice and salt!

  • 6 eggs, beaten
  • 3 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 10 fresh peaches, pitted and chopped
  • 4 cups heavy cream
  • 2 cups half-and-half cream
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt


  1. In large bowl, mix together eggs and sugar until smooth; puree peaches in blender or food processor and stir 5 cups of puree into egg mixture. Stir in cream, half-and-half, vanilla and salt and mix well.
  2. Pour mixture into freezer canister of ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer's instructions.

(I wisked together the eggs, cream, half & half, vanilla and salt in a bowl. I put the chopped peaches and sugar in the blender and then poured some of the milk mixture in to blend them all up.)
