Brownies...And We Are Not Talking Of Girl Scouts!!

  This recipe is dedicated to Alexia and to memories past Y esterday my daughter had lunch with two of her high school girlfriends whom she hadn't seen in a long time.  As they were discussing memories past, one of her friends recalled the brownies I used to make which they love so much during the kiddy parties. When Barbara told me about the discussion, I immediately thought of sharing the recipe with you. Mind you, the recipe had been inspired by Betty Crocker's thirty years ago but has evolved through the years.

O k yesterday we had Sikander's Kima for lunch and we shared the recipe. By the way it was very good.

Sikander's "Kima" With Basmati....Typical Pakistani

Ready Cooked "Kima". S ikander is a good friend of mine and is from Pakistan. We met in Egypt while I was stationed there. The excellent assistant I had, Salwa, a woman, and he, hit it off, fell in love and got married. So I was left without. About 30 years later we met again through Facebook. He continues to live in Egypt, still married to her, and I ended up in Athens (God knows why).  We talk and exchange recipes on Skype. Today's recipe is his "Kima" . For those who know Greek will guess what it is...but for everybody else...

My Baked Beef Balls

  Oops!! Messed up again! Lost the pictures again... I hope you guys have realized by now since the 16th of December 2010 that I write whatever comes to my mind that day, and most of the time I write what we are having for lunch.. So you must be sure that these recipes have been tested. If there is something which went wrong during lunch, I fix it in the recipe meaning that 98% of the time I am the one preparing lunch and  / or dinner.  Hopefully my recipes give you some ideas for what to cook that day and that you enjoy reading me as much as I enjoy writing to you. So today I decided to make huge meat balls which if you press them from the top they will become burgers. I left them as balls. Furthermore, as you will see in the picture they are being baked but can be grilled as well.
