Recently, someone asked me how I deal with stress. 🤯

I have a few ways. Lifting weights 🏋️‍♂️ and reading are good options.

My favorite, though: cooking. I love food and I love to cook. 😁 To me, there’s nothing more relaxing than making dinner or baking a treat.

And brownies are my favorite. Dense, rich, and chocolatey are how I like ’em.

Here’s the recipe we make at home and give to family and friends during the holidays. Hope you enjoy.


• Soft butter, for greasing the pan
• Flour, for dusting the buttered pan
• 4 large eggs
• 1 cup sugar, sifted
• 1 cup brown sugar, sifted
• 8 ounces melted butter
• 1 1/4 cups cocoa, sifted
• 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
• 1/2 cup flour, sifted
• 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
• 1/2 bag of dark chocolate chips


1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Butter and flour an 8-inch square pan.

2. In a mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, beat the eggs at medium speed until fluffy and light yellow (about 7 minutes on setting 9/10). Drop mixer speed to 3/10 and add both sugars. Add remaining ingredients, except chocolate chips, and mix to combine. Once combined, mix in chocolate chips.

3. Pour the batter into a greased and floured 8-inch square pan and bake for 63 minutes. Check for doneness with the tried-and-true toothpick method: a toothpick inserted into the center of the pan should come out clean. When it’s done, remove to a rack to cool. Resist the temptation to cut into it until it’s mostly cool.
