recipe: classic brownies & blondies

happy monday! i made these classic but yummy brownies and blondies for my friend this week and wanted to share the recipes that i used from food network. i use their recipes often, especially when i want to try new things. brownies are a classic dessert and when you find a good recipe you want to use that same one all the time. i love this recipe and i love the blondies recipe as well. this blondies recipe was a new one for me!
