If I had to describe myself one of the things I would say is I like to cook esp baking So, Do you think if you like to do something -- does that equate w/ being good at it? I guess I did.? These Blond Brownies or 'Goldies' are an old family favorite. I remember my sister C making them often. We all loved them as kids and it was one of the recipes I had to have after I got married -- for my own family. I have made these -- I would have to say, hundreds of times and we still love them. My niece was baptized last night and I brought some to share. Both my Mom and one of my sisters said I didn't know you could make "Goldies" I said they're not hard we make them all the time. Mom: -- "did you use margarine or butter?" me: "butter". Mom: "Oh,(with derision) well my mom used margarine she said if you use margarine you don't have to use as much salt?"
Ok Mom.
