I live on a farm with my husband, Danny, and our children, Jeffrey, Scott and Angie. Between farm chores, gardening and taking the kids to their many activities, I manage to keep quite busy. I do, however, like to cook and bake.

"Yes, these are good- everyone enjoyed these uncommon brownies.

The walnuts give a very nice flavor and the carmel frosting is addictive."

"Everyone really liked these, personally I thought they were a little bit too sweet...but that was mainly because of the caramel icing...i think next time i'll put a little less confectioners' sugar."
