It’s 5 o’clock, and you’re leaving the office in search of some post-work libations and snacks before dinner. You could go the traditional happy hour route — where you’re limited to a few drinks and small bites within a short window of time — or you could up the ante and visit a Japanese izakaya.
Making brownies from scratch is easy and fast, so I’ve always been perplexed as to why so many people think they need to use a box mix. I know I’ve said this many times before on this blog — remember my macaroni and cheese, pudding and pancake rants? — but before you resign yourself to a lifetime of box-mix brownies, just try making some from scratch first. You’ll see that they don’t take much more time and taste far better than the box variety.
