If you are wondering how reading can be useful and practical, you have to look no further than recipes.  You can cook anything you want if you can read and follow directions.  Well, you might need a little practice, too.

Here are the directions for two delicious brownies.  BAke some up and enjoy!

Can’t Leave Alone Bars

  • 1 package white cake mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine, cubed

In a bowl, combine dry cake mix, eggs and oil.  With floured hands, press two-thirds of the mixture into a greased 13-in. by 9-in. by 2-in. baking pan.  Set remaining cake mixture aside.

In a microwave safe bowl, combine the milk, chocolate chips and butter.  Microwave, uncovered, on high for 45 seconds; stir.  Microwave 45-60 seconds longer or until chips and butter are melted; stir until smooth.  Pour over crust.

Drop teaspoonfuls of remaining cake mixture over top. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until lightly browned.  Cook before cutting.

Pumpkin Brownies

  • 1 15-ounce can of pumpkin
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Beat together eggs, oil, pumpkin, and sugar.  Stir in remaining ingredients until evenly mixed.  Pour into a greased and floured 9-by-13 inch baking dish.  Bake for 30 minutes, or until center springs back when touched.

Tips from Test Kitchen:  Serve with whipped topping or a cream cheese frosting.  Yummy!
