Ba Ba's Bowl & A Brownies Recipe!

Curtis and I went to a drag race exhibition on Saturday. It's about 4 hours away so we take food with us. Food that we normally wouldn't have around on a daily basis...because I would be the only one who eats it! Anyway, one of our traditional drag race food is cheesecake brownies. When I made them this time, I grabbed my Ba Ba's (grandma's) Pyrex bowl that has been passed down to me in the last year or so. It's the bowl that I grab most. Even though my Ba Ba passed on when I was young, I remember this bowl. I don't know what it is about this bowl but it gives me a warm fuzzy feeling inside every time I use it. Maybe because I imagine my Ba Ba using it herself to make her awesome rolls that we'll never taste again because the recipe was never written down. Maybe it's because she's up there watching down on me while I use it. Maybe it's because I feel close to her while I use it. Or maybe it is just because I'm a sentimental fool and anything that is old and once belonged to someone I love makes me happy. Who knows?However I do know this bowl will be passed down to Allison one day whose middle name (Victoria) was chosen because it was my Ba Ba's first name. I am hoping she will cherish it as much as I do!
Mmm! There is something about brownie batter that says "Stick your finger in me and taste me!"
The recipe is below but this time I sprinkled milk chocolate chips on top. It was a perfect addition!
Can you almost taste it? They are such a moist brownie!
Philly Cheesecake Brownies
1 pkg of brownie mix (I used the basic Betty Crocker mix.)
1 pkg (8 oz.) Philadelphia cream cheese
1/3 cup sugar
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1. Prepare brownie mix as directed on package. Pour into greased 13 x 9 in baking pan.
2. Beat cream cheese with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Add sugar, mixing until well blended. Ad egg and vanilla and also mix until well blended.
3. Pour cream cheese mixture over brownie mixture; cut through batter with knife several times for marbled effect.
4. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes or until cream cheese mixture is lightly browned. Cool and cut into squares. Makes 24.

Have Fun!
