Yummy Brownies.......

So after Thanksgiving I was looking at the pictures we took and I just couldn't believe how I looked.  So I decided that I needed a steady exercise routine, which I try to do but have not been good since the first of October, and watch what I eat a little better.  Be more careful and conscience of what I am putting in my mouth.  So I have done really good especially since it has only been a few days that I decided to do this.  Anyone who knows me knows I hate to watch what I eat.  I am not good at it.  But I really don't over do that much.  I just need to work out harder.  :)  Ok, so anyway like I said, I have been trying to be more conscience  and Monday I looked at one of my favorite cooking blogs called "Sisters Cafe" and a yummy brownie recipe was posted.  She said it was a one bowl one spoon recipe and yummy so I had to try it.  And, yup, it was great.  So I decided I would post the recipe so you could try it.  (Megan)  Here it is.  I had to bake it longer than I thought but I was very careful to not let it get over done.  YUMMY!

Perfect One Bowl Brownies
submitted by Melanie

1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup canola or vegetable oil
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup cocoa
4 eggs
3/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1 3/4 cup flour
1 cup chocolate chips (although I never measure--I just sprinkle them on top)

Preheat oven to 350. In a medium bowl melt butter in microwave, then stir in oil, sugar and cocoa. With a wooden spoon stir in the remainder of the ingredients except for the chocolate chips. Spread into a 9x13 pan sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Sprinkle the chocolate chips over the top. Bake in a preheated oven for 25-30 minutes. If your toothpick comes out clean you have cooked them too long! DO NOT OVERCOOK!
