Marshmallow Brownies

I haven't been blogging lately.  I've been cooking and baking, but not blogging about it.  I have a bunch of good recipes stored in my que to add, but for now, I am enjoying my computer-free lifestyle.  It's quite nice, actually.  No email, no facebook, no twitter, no internet!  Most days, I've kept my computer use to an hour or less.  I'm trying to clear out my mind before school begins again and before I am stuck in front of a computer for hours and hours at a time.

I baked these brownies a few weeks ago when Ron's sister came to visit.  I had been craving brownies and knew that this was an interesting spin on your typical cake brownie.  Both Ron and his sister said they would have preferred some type of graham cracker crust on the bottom.  But then the brownies would have been s'more brownies and that is just a whole different recipe!

But, these were pretty good and very easy to make.  They actually seemed to taste a lot better the second day.  By that time, we were eating the brownies in the middle, which I prefer over the hard, dense ends.  Yum!!
