I got my first recipe for magic brownies at a Weight Watchers meeting. I became so hooked on the little squares of chewy, chocolaty goodness that I began testing, revising and perfecting my own version. When mixed and baked just right, they come out moist, delicious and mind-numbingly good. The secret ingredient? Black beans. That's right, magic brownies are nothing more than a can of black beans pureed and dumped into a fat-free brownie mix. I also add cinnamon, which not only perks up the flavor but has been shown in studies to help lower LDL, or "bad" cholesterol.

I'm an entrepreneur with experience in both public and private sector, and I work in tech, a traditionally male-dominated field. It's important that workplaces affirmatively work to recruit and retain top women talent. Once you get the job, certain minor changes can help ensure you assert yourself professionally. Cheryl Sandberg advises to take a seat at the table - literally and figuratively. Here are a few more tips: •Don't bake brownies. You're not a Girl Scout troop leader at work, don't act like one. •Don't use exclamation points in email correspondence.

I know you're going to laugh when you read this, but prune brownies are really pretty good.All kidding aside, the California Prune Board has been experimenting with substituting prune puree or prune butter for butter, margarine or oil, measure for measure, in standard recipes for muffins, cakes and cookies. (In a recipe that calls for 1/4 cup of butter or oil, substitute 1/4 cup of prune puree.)The brownie samples they provided were really chocolaty and good. The texture was a little different, spongy rather than chewy.

When spring rolls around each year, I know it is my turn to invite the nine other women in my book club to my house for dinner and a literary discussion.Southwestern-style dishes struck my fancy this time, so chilied almonds will begin the evening, followed by a robust tomato-vegetable soup seasoned with cumin, hot peppers and cilantro and garnished with shredded Monterey Jack cheese. Homemade bread and a green salad tossed in a honey-lime vinaigrette will complete the main course. To end the night there will be orange and raisin brownies.

First came the food trucks. Now, there's a cookie scooter. Back in June, Columbia resident Casey Dyson launched CookieRide, which sells home-baked cookies from an environmentally-friendly scooter. Dyson has been bringing CookieRide to Columbia gathering spots like Lake Kittamaqundi, office parks and outdoor pools. CookieRide also deliver cookies -- as well as pastry platters, brownies and gift baskets -- to homes and businesses year-round, but curbside sales will wrap up in November and resume next March.

Marie Anderson from Towson was looking for a recipe for making creme de menthe brownies. Sharon Roe from Baltimore sent in her recipe for the brownies that she has been making for more than 25 years. She said she continues to receive countless compliments on them. She also said, "This is a great dessert to make ahead of time, freeze and always have on hand to serve whenever you have planned or unplanned guests and need a scrumptious treat for dessert. " When I tested her recipe, while it was not specified, I used green creme de menthe so the frosting came out a pretty bright green color.

A congratulations to the Harford County Department of Public Works and Mr. Cooper; they have stepped up from being responsible for sediment run-off into the bay to sewage. For a county employee Mr. James C. Haynes to self-describe his performance as excellent after 263,000 gallons of raw sewage spilled into the environment is absurd. It kind of smacks of a "good job, Brownie. " Good job in controlling the other 167,000 gallons, you deserve a raise. Have County Executive David R. Craig fund it through the developers.

Kim McDaniel of Winchester, Va., was looking for a brownie recipe that her mother used to make on special occasions. Unfortunately, her mother did not pass on the recipe, but she remembers that the brownies had a graham-cracker crust, then a layer of brownie, she thinks, and then a layer of marshmallow and probably chocolate chips. June Palmer of Santa Rosa, Calif., sent in a recipe for what she calls S'More Squares. If they're not exactly what McDaniel was looking for, they have to be very close.

If you want to get big and fat in this country and grow to the size of the Goodyear blimp, there is no shortage of opportunities to do so. The latest comes courtesy of the folks at Domino's Pizza, who have come up with a new offer that makes some of their previous offers look like an order of celery sticks by comparison. The new offer is this: order a large pizza and Domino's will throw in a free order of 10 oven-baked brownies. Yes, brownies. Apparently, this is being offered on the theory that after someone polishes off, say, a thick, cheesy, pepperoni pizza and collapses on the couch in a stupor, the first thing he or she thinks is: Boy, it would be great to have some brownies right about now. Pizza and brownies - is that an artery-clogging doubleheader, or what?
