Sweet Sunday Romance

Today is the games for the NFL Conference Championships. Many people are hosting parties with friends. Food and drink is plentiful.

Whether you are watching the games or enjoying a quiet Sunday, take time for a little bit of romance.

Cook up something yummy in the kitchen together. Make some brownies and top them with a dash of powdered sugar. Open a bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon. A red wine with a velvety texture, oaky spice and dark berry fruit goes perfect with chocolate. I love my Michigan wines, but a California Cabernet Sauvignon will work nicely too.

Enjoy the brownies and wine while watching a romantic comedy and snuggle under a cozy blanket.

Homemade Brownies

  • 1 1/4 cups margarine
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 3/4 cup cocoa
  • 2 cups nuts (optional)
  • powder sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Melt butter and add cocoa; mix. Stir in sugar and blend in the eggs, one at a time. Add vanilla. Stir in flour and nuts; mix well.

Bake in greased 9 x 13-inch pan for 30 minutes in preheated oven. Sprinkle with powder sugar. Let cool on rack, 20 to 30 minutes. Cut into 20 square pieces.
