OK, so I am going out in search of a brownie today. I am not baking any since that would mean that I would eat them all myself. Why you ask? Because it is national Brownie Day! Yum. Here is a little brownie history for you....
"One legend about the creation of brownies is that of Bertha Palmer, a prominent Chicago socialite whose husband owned the Palmer House Hotel. One day in 1893, she asked a pastry chef for a dessert suitable for ladies attending the Chicago World's Columbian Exposition. She requested a cake-like confection smaller than a piece of cake that could be included in boxed lunches. The result was the Palmer House Brownie with walnuts and an apricot glaze. The modern Palmer House Hotel serves a dessert to patrons it states is made from the same recipe. The name was given to the dessert sometime after 1893, but was not used by cook books or journals at the time."OK! So Brownies are something to celebrate! So go out and have one ... or bake some of your own.
Have a fantastic day!
