Cream Cheese Brownies

  This summer seems really hot, congenial for weeds but a lot of work in the yard.  I wish it were flowering weeds than the terrible other kind that received me home from my vacation. If so, my yard would then have been a flower haven.  I don't know if I am making sense, the thing is there is too much weeds and I am afraid my neighbors are looking down with disdain.  Not for long though, with the help (sometimes, but otherwise a bother) of my kids we are getting them down.  However, involving means I have to bribe them.  I am sure you will agree.  But who is complaining, this pushes me to make sweet treats which I enjoy eating as well as sharing with you. Today I am following the recipe from "the joy of baking" site.  I follower her to the T this time, though I generally improvise and give my own twist.  My brains were too fried after all that sun to put in any more effort.  The brownies were delicious and I recommend this recipe highly.  Thank you 'Joy of Baking.'
