Not-Very-Good Brownies

I have been sick the last few days and have done nothing useful. Two days ago I baked brownies that turned out to be a bit too cakey and overall pretty unimpressive. But since they've been around, and I've been feeling crummy all I've been doing is eating not-very-good brownies and sluggishly taking care of the kids. I know eating brownies is not the best thing to do when you're sick, but, well...they're here. This tells me a couple things:

  1. I need to find a better brownie recipe.
  2. Maybe I ought to realize I have no chocolate self control and make only a half batch?
  3. MAYBE making chicken soup would be a better choice next time I'm starting to feel a cold coming on.
  4. Maybe I shouldn't alter the recipe and should have all ingredients on hand if I want something to come out well. But hey, I can at least say that this recipe is too cakey dry and bland if you do not add the chocolate chips, only have 1/2 C of walnuts and replace 2 oz of unsweetened chocolate with 6 oz cocoa powder and a tablespoon of butter. ::shrug::
