Welcome to The Pauley Principle!

The Pauli Principle, named for Wolfgang Pauli, deals with atoms and electron-sharing that results in new, stronger bonds. Think 2 parts hydrogen and 1 part oxygen, a shared delectable (!) electron and VOILA! Water!

Similarly, when you prepare whole food to share with family and friends, especially foods you've grown, something amazing happens. Meals become tastier and healthier. Your soul, not just your stomach, becomes fulfilled. You live life more abundantly as a result. During a shared meal, the bonds that people create grow stronger and become something new: GREATER than the sum of the parts! I give you The Pauley Principle.

BROWNIES: A Great Way to say I LOVE YOU!!!

Shown here with powdered sugar, this is close to Heaven!
For convenience and  frugality, nothing beats the boxed mixes of brownies. 

If, however, you want to serve up a delectable treat for that special person, a treat that won't be greasy or cause heartburn, then please try this made-from-scratch version  and see if this isn't the best brownie you have ever eaten! It's chewy, fudgy and so... 

From THE ART OF FINE BAKING by Paula Peck 
Simon and Schuster, 1970

6 ounces baking chocolate
3/4 cup butter
6 eggs
3 cups sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
1  1/2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1  1/2 cups walnuts

Set oven to 325 degrees F. Grease and lightly flour an 11" X 16" jelly roll pan. Melt chocolate and butter together. Set aside to cool slightly. 

Beat eggs and sugar together until fluffy. Add vanilla. Stir in chocolate mixture, then the flour, salt, and nuts. Mix only until combined. (Too much mixing will mix in more air for a cake-like browie.)

Pour into prepared pan, bake about 25 minutes or until top looks dry. (You can cut while still warm with a pizza cutter.)  

Serving suggestion: Fresh strawberries with chocolate syrup!
