Plainly and simply, Dorie Greenspan is my baking guru.

Her Baking: From My Home to Yours book is my baking bible.  The pages are dog-eared, floured, crinkly, and splattered with recipe shrapnel, which is always a sign of good things. Her beautiful, delicious desserts are now our birthday traditions and family favorites around here, and I’ve even featured quite a few recipes of hers right here on this blog. So, when my friends at OXO got in touch with me and asked if I’d like to have the opportunity to try out one of Dorie’s newest recipes, from her highly anticipated new book Dorie’s Cookies (Coming in October!), I couldn’t pass it up.

Bumpy Lumpy Rocky Road Brownies – Bake a Difference with OXO

Outrageous Bumpy Lumpy Rocky Road Brownies - Chew Nibble Nosh

If you read this blog often, you know that I do like to promote products or companies that I truly believe in.  OXO is first and foremost among those companies.  I’ve always been an OXO fan, my kitchen has been filled with their gadgets since day one, but as a blogger I’ve developed a deeper relationship with them through their amazing Blogger Outreach Program, and learned that they are not just about amazing kitchen gadgetry, they are also BIG on giving back.
