the difference between a fqc and me  

The difference between a FQC–Fully Qualified Chef (ie, Ted)–and me:

When I make brownies, I pull out the tried and true recipe my family’s been using for more than thirty years. It’s a terrific recipe. It makes wonderful, wonderful brownies.

When *Ted* makes brownies, he pulls out a Chocolate Raspberry Truffle Brownie recipe with a cream cheese frosting.

We will be the family lolling about on the lawn with our feets and hands up in the air and our round tender underbellies exposed to the sky. :)

Does Ted have a FQC brother?

Wait, I'm in a committed relationship. Don't answer that!

Does he?

You're in luck. He doesn't. :)

I want a Ted of my very own. Please invent exact cloning technology. Kthxbye.

That's quite the "full" icon you've got there...

One of the great bonus delights in my life is that the woman I married happens to like to cook. If I'd ended up with someone with cooking interests similar to mine, life would be okay--just a bit less interesting.

Round, tender underbellies, huh? I'm equally entranced by the brownies and your description of them. And since I can't kidnap Ted...

*laughs* Um. THE PRETENDER'S CROWN is out at the end of April! :)

Those sound evil...

Yay brownies!
*chuckle* Greg made brownies last night. Non-dairy with Ghiradelli chocolate and no eggs. A leetle dry, but OH SO GOOD with milk for dunking!

*laugh* I can see it now . . .

Funny...I'm not a FQC either, but tend to glance at a basic recipe, and then experiment.

Never had any complaints yet.

Nor leftovers...

Mmmmmmm, brownies. I SO have a craving now. Must find chocolate.

Your description of the aftermath made me giggle. :)

(And those brownies sound awesome. You should ask him kindly to write his recipe down and then post it. Except I'd want to fudge with it and make it some other contrasting flavor--like maybe Kahlua or Bailey's. What? Cook? Me?)

Um, can we please get BOTH recipes? Then we can make them both and judge....pretty please?
