I don’t know what it is that makes shooting decent pictures of brownies darned near impossible for me. You’d think I’d gradually get better at it, but no, these are just as bad, if not worse, as some of my other brownie shots from the past. Alas, I am too lazy to try again, so these ugly-looking brownie pictures are getting posted, like it or not!

I realize it’s been two weeks since I posted a TWD recipe…I know…I’m bad. BUT – here I am again, back on the TWD wagon! This week’s recipe is Tribute to Katherine Hepburn Brownies (love her!), chosen by Lisa of Surviving Oz, who was the winner of a little logo contest we held over at TWD. Yay Lisa! I’ve been waiting on someone to pick these brownies for a couple of reasons, A.) I love me some brownies! and B.) I LOVE Katherine Hepburn! My favorite of her movies is The Philadelphia Story with Cary Grant and Jimmy Stewart – have you watched this? If you haven’t, you SHOULD!! It’s one of the great classics, in my opinion! Some others of hers that I just love are Bringing Up Baby, Adam’s Rib, and Woman of the Year. This woman didn’t make a bad movie! I was happy to make her special brownies and as I ate them, I imagined good old Kate baking these in her kitchen…”these brownies are just delicious, rally they are…rally..”.

I know the pictures are the epitome of suck, but really, they were some of the best brownies I’ve ever eaten! If you like fudgy brownies, these are for you, my friend!! Visit Lisa’s blog and get the recipe – make Katherine’s brownies and watch her movies…a great night, in my opinion!! Enjoy!!



  1. Lol! Philadelphia Story is one of my all-time FAVORITE movies!! (our posts are almost identical).

    Your pix look fab – it IS hard to get good shots of brownies!

  2. They don’t suck! I had a VERY hard time getting pics of mine, too – they were all SO blown out. Yummy brownies, though! 🙂

  3. I feel you on the brownie pictures, WHY ARE YOU SO TASTY AND YET SO HARD TO PHOTOGRAPH?

    Ugh. (yours do look pretty damn tasty here though)

  4. I think your photos are still deliciously AMAZING . . . I need a glass of milk looking at them!

  5. I agree that these have been one of the best recipes selected! Mine have a lot more chunks of stuff than yours, which I liked a lot.

  6. Just the opposite – the photos are wonderful! They capture the fudgy nature, and dense, thin "goodness" of them. Nicely done!

  7. I don’t know what you’re talking about, looking at your photos makes me need another batch right away! Yum!

  8. I think you’re being too hard on yourself. The brownies look really good! Well done.

  9. I’m with you on the elusive well-photographed brownie. (Yours look better than mine, LOL, if that makes you feel any better.)

    I’m glad you liked them so well!

  10. I’m going to totally disagree – I think your photos are pretty great! 🙂 Brownies are really hard to photograph. These were too fudgy for me but I’m glad you enjoyed them.

  11. Those are NOT ugly pictures. Look at all that dark, dense deliciousness. Bring it on.
