Man, do people LOVE brownies

Besides being an online brownie ambassador to the world, I also have a desk job. I work as a writer at an ad agency, where I have hundreds of hungry coworkers. As I’ve tested new recipes over the past year, I have often brought a big ol’ pan of brownies into the office so I can seek my coworkers’ input.

Last month, I went to my desk and found this sticky note under my mouse:

WARNING: When you drop your "plain-brownie" routine and start making amazing brownies, you must expect people to want more of them.

That three-word sticky note serves as just one person’s testament to the sheer transformative power of brownies. But just plain old brownies don’t have that kind of power. You gotta bring the creativity. You gotta bring the love.

Look at that sticky note.

It’s desperate.

It’s full of hope.

It’s a sign of the bond between baker and biter.

And it’s one more reason that you need to pick a recipe on this site and start sharing the brownie love… like the brownie ambassador you were meant to be.

I love to bake brownies. And right now, I’m up to my oven mitts while I bake up a bunch more recipe ideas to share with you on this very site.

I’m writing this first post just as a placeholder to say, “Hi,” while I continue the construction of what will soon be a veritable amusement-park for brownie lovers.

Think of this post as a friendly ambassador, greeting you with a cheerful kitchen-towel-snap-to-the-hindquarters.

In just a few weeks, c’mon back. You’ll soon be witness to some blog content that really matters. I’m talking brownies, a ton of brownies. Plus brownie ideas that will get you excited about box mixes.

Yeah, that’s what I said.

You will be excited.

About a dollar-ninety-nine box brownie mix. And just how far you can take it with some genuine love, flair, and creativity.

So, all you brownie bakers out there: hang on to your toques for another couple of weeks. And revisit this site in July, when you’ll see what outoftheboxbrownies.com is all about: Sharing the brownie love.
