brownies are a girl's best friend

Once again, I'm on my "no sugar" kick. Five days into it and I was DYING for chocolate brownies. So I searched high and low for a sugar free brownie recipe. I found one using Splenda. Nutritionally, I went from the fire into the frying pan, but hey, desperate times call for desperate measures.

The first batch didn't turn out so well because I over baked them a tad due to the fact that the pan was 9X9 instead of 8X8. I ate one and I'm like, "Damn, this has an odd sort of taste. It's not that great," but you know me, I'm nothing if not persistent, so I kept eating.

And complaining.

I ate half of the pan--hey, 9x9 is a small pan and the batter only rose about 1/4 of an inch in that pan. I left the rest for Mr. G, who came into the room a short time later, saying, "Those brownies tasted terrible. They had a weird aftertaste."

Later that evening, I was craving again and decided to finish the brownies, only to discover Mr. G had eaten the other half of the pan. I said, "Why in the world did you eat those brownies if you didn't like them?" He said, "Same reason you did." Damn it.

Well, it didn't go to waste, anyway!

Actually, it DID go to waste, by now---just a little more earth-tone, in the outcome...!
