Good evening all. I needed to use up some eggs so I made a batch of brownies, uses 4 eggs and trying them with only 2T espresso pwd this time; also made a 5 egg quiche with corn, bacon and cheese. I seasoned with pepper and smoked paprika.

Nice job IM!

I'm curious about how you like the brownies with the 2 Tab espresso powder. I know that is less than last time, but still more than what I use. What did you think of that amount, did that give you the taste you've been looking for?

Thanks. Yes it was more what I was looking for. I think the strength could vary from brand to brand, but this was about right. I can taste the espresso but it doesn’t overwhelm the chocolate.

Wyoming is a unique animal, it is right on the line between East coast and West coast supply lines for many big corporations.

When we where buying our camper, we went to the manufacturer website and looked at layouts. The one we liked was not at the dealership, and the one at the dealership that we liked almost as much was not on the web-site. When we called and asked about the discrepency - the guy explained it to us. We could order any layout they made, because we were in the gray area between the 2 manufacturing areas. Something about the Great Continental Divide. So, in many ways, we are a divided country.
