Anyone who does not like brownies please raise your hand. Perhaps you don't like chocolate, which is a fair reason for not liking brownies. But if you don't like brownies because it does not taste good or the brownies you had before were too sweet, then please allow this recipe to change your mind.
David Lebovitz (http://www.davidlebovitz.com/) is my first-stop go to person for dessert recipe. He wrote a wonderful book called "The sweet life of Paris". If you were in Paris, or going to Paris, or dreaming about going to Paris, please read this book.
I found David's recipe through another random website called http://leitesculinaria.com/36645/recipes-brownies.html
I am going to copy the recipe verbatim from that website (reference and acknowledgement noted). I will simply highlight my own thoughts in RED.
