FRIEND FRIDAY GUEST POST–MARY JENSEN!!

Mary Jensen is such an amazing neighbor and friend. We were neighbors for years and had children the same age.  She was always the fun mom 🙂 of the neighborhood and my kids loved her.  Rumor has it that she’s an AWESOME teacher and she enjoys baking. I am so excited for Mary to share the recipe for her famous brownies!! Who doesn’t love a good brownie recipe!!  YUM!! Thanks so much for sharing with us today, Mary! Can’t wait to try these!! Sooooo I’ll let Mary take it away……..


I am the mother of 3 adult children. Jessica is married and the mother of three; Kacie is in SLC; and Andrew just got out of 9 years in the Navy.
I was widowed at age 30 when my kids were 5, 3, and 1.  I moved to St. George in the fall of 1993, and began going to Dixie College in August 1994.  My goal was to get a teaching degree to provide for my family.  I have a BS in History and English, and a Masters in Education.  I’ve been teaching for over 18 years in Washington County.

Baking is such a fun thing to do.  I love it more than cooking, but I do love to cook a good solid meal.  Opening up a bakery is not on my agenda because I want to be free to visit my grandkids and go play with my friends! 

MARY’S FAMOUS BROWNIES (original recipe from Betty Crocker with a few of Mary’s tweeks 🙂
In a large stock pot, melt 1 cup butter (2 cubes) and 1 package unsweetened chocolate – Bakers is preferred, 4 oz size. Melt on medium heat until all melted, but do not let it boil. Remove from heat.

Add 2 cups white sugar. Stir until smooth.

Add 4 eggs. Stir until smooth.

Add 1 tsp vanilla, 1 tsp baking soda. Stir together.

Add 1 cup of flour, a little overflowing. Stir.

At this point you can add chocolate chips or nuts.

Pour into 9 x 13 glass pan, non-stick sprayed.

Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.

The center will look a little sunken. Take a sharp knife and loosen the edges all around the pan. Let it sit for about 20 minutes.

I love to add homemade chocolate frosting, but my kids would rather eat it without.
