While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.
Hey, Blondie! You know what May 9 is? It's National Blonde Brownie Day!
Blonde or butterscotch brownies, also known as "blondies," pack the sweetness without the caffeine kick of chocolate.
They are made with a brown sugar base and baked like any dessert bar. If your brownies have ever turned out a little bitter, never fear - the brown sugar will take you away on a wave of sweetness.
Bake up a pan of blonde brownie goodness, drench it in caramel sauce or save it as the base for your ice cream sundae. You won't be disappointed that chocolate didn't show up to the party.
