|Flowers for Momma|
It's so special baking or cooking with family, especially in memory of a family member, for an event or church potluck, or just for a week-night meal with loved ones. One of our favorite dinners is Momma's Chicken and Rice Casserole and a side of green beans, with blonde brownies for dessert. Nothing says quality family time like sharing a meal together. And it's so meaningful for me when I can enjoy making food that Momma loved and is in her cookbook! Especially when I'm at home in Arkansas visiting with family!

Dumb Blonde Brownies (Hello Judys)
By: Patricia Rains, from "A Pinch of This, A Smidgen of That" cookbook
1 pkg. Duncan Hines Butter Recipe Yellow Cake Mix
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 large eggs, slightly beaten (3 eggs for cake-like brownies)
3 tablespoons water
1 pkg. (10.5 to 12 oz. bag) chocolate chips
1 cup chopped pecans (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 F. Place dry cake mix in a large bowl. Use a spatula to break up lumps. Combine oil, eggs, and water, and whisk together until foamy. Add to dry cake mix and stir with a spatula. Do not use a mixer! Once most of the lumps are out, add chocolate chips and nuts (if desired). Stir only until well-combined. Spray nonstick coating on inside of a 13x9 casserole dish. Spread batter evenly inside the pan. Bake 30 minutes. Remove and cool completely before cutting.
