Double Chocolate Fudge Brownies

Double Chocolate Fudge Brownies. Hands off — these are all mine!

Break-ups. Bad hair days. Work problems. Brownies are the warm, chewy, brown friend you turn to when you start feeling like life is piling troubles on your shoulders. While they are not the cure — brownies are a quick and easy craving buster that are a cinch to whip up and have you back on the road to coping.

Blueberry Pie

I scored a huge box of fresh, local blueberries at the Langley Community Farmers Market recently. Plump and juicy, bursting with that tangy-sweet flavour, these little blue jewels demanded to be stuffed immediately into a delicious pie.

This is my favourite recipe for blueberry pie. The pastry crust I prefer for this pie uses all butter (pâte brisée), recipe included after the jump. If making pie pastry intimidates you or if you're in a hurry, then use a purchased double-crust pie shell. I hope you like it!
