In The Kitchen with Dionne Z.
If you love brownies (who doesn’t!) then this recipe from our own Dionne Z. is sure to please your palate. Dionne, one of our amazing dental assistants, likes to use coffee instead of water for this recipe. She says it gives it a special flavor that is perfect if you are a coffee lover. But if you’re not a fan of coffee, use water in the recipe.

½ cup packed brown sugar
2/3 cup butter
