Twitter #Weekendeats highlights: Who needs a brownie?

July 30, 2012 |  4:47 pm


There really is no such thing as a bad time for a brownie. Bad breakup? Eat an entire pan. Need a snack? Indulge in a single square. Housewarming? Bake a batch. The excuses for eating brownies are endless and apparently our #weekendeats family couldn't agree more or resist over the weekend. We had a varied mix of food and cocktails this morning during our #weekendeats chat on Twitter but the shared pictures of brownies left a lasting impression and a yearning for some chocolate. Here are the highlights:

Pictured above are a plate of decadent chocolate brownies from the blog Deliciously Directionless, who wrote "a plate-full of bliss, polished off in a matter of minutes." Dave Volpe of the blog The Starving Artist shared a recipe and picture of a batch of outrageous brownies he made with his new oven. For those who want to indulge but keep it healthy, Yuri, also known as @chefpandita on Twitter shared a picture of "guilt free" brownies that are raw and vegan.

Other highlights included a fun twist on grape leaves made with Swiss chard leaves from Aliya Leekong, a cake made entirely of sprinkle sugar cookies from Buttercream Blondie and a recipe for homemade macaroni and cheese with smoked cheddar cheese and a kick of cayenne pepper.

After the chat, we ask people to upload pictures of their #weekendeats to our What did you eat this weekend? photo gallery. We'll feature some of the photos here on Daily Dish, so be sure to check back for more #weekendeats and #foodporn throughout the week.

Hope to see everyone next Monday morning on Twitter! It's sure to be a drool-worthy good time.
