Blondies For Fiesta Friday #54 And A Winner For Uncle Steve’s Giveaway!!!

 

Moist and delicious

Moist and delicious

Who doesn’t love a blondie? I certainly do, and when I saw this recipe for Blondies on Mama’s Gotta Bake, I knew I needed/wanted to make it. If you have never visited Sheryl’s site you are in for a treat when you do. I love her recipes and photography, she doesn’t just bake her savory recipes are amazing too. I had yet to find a recipe for Blondies that I was totally in love with, they were good, some were not, I have had more than my fair share of flops. I am so happy to report that this recipe is a keeper. It’s simple to make and results are fantastic. The recipe/instructions are spot on. Sheryl used chocolate chips, pecans and cranberries. I didn’t have cranberries so I didn’t use any fruit, but I did use both dark and milk chocolate, brown butter and pecans.

After 2 weeks of partying I’m surprised Angie @The Novice Gardener isn’t worn out,  and this week to help keep the party going she has two fabulous co hosts to help her Josette @ The Brook Cook and Sonal @Simply Vegetarian 777, this is going to be one heck of a party.  So for Fiesta Friday#54 I am bringing Mama’s Gotta Bake’s delicious blondies, I hope you all enjoy!!!

  2. MMM those look good, I love blondies especially with a big glass of milk!!! Have a great weekend Suzanne!! 🙂

    YUM – I do love blondies and love that crinkly top on these Suzanne! Happy Happy Friday!

    February 6, 2015
    • Thank you. I love the crinkly top too, always try to get that on my brownies. I’ll have to try and use this recipe adapting to brownies so I get the same effect.

      February 6, 2015
  4. Yum! I love the idea of adding pecans into blondies – I made blondies for the very first time last weekend and am hooked on them now 🙂

    February 6, 2015
  5. Those blondies sound delicious, Suzanne.
    >Congrats to Liz! It’s probably a good thing i didn’t win… I think the sauces got into my subconscious… (I confess, i’ve never seen an episode of the Sopranos.) After your other post about them, i had this strange dream about Uncle Steve. We were both relocating and partnered up for the drive. We ended up in some bizarre houses. I woke up thinking a big question mark. LOL. I kid you not. Hugs! 😀

    February 6, 2015
    • Sounds like the start of a new book. LOL, that would be a fun drive and would love to hear you expound on that one. Thanks Teagan. I wish everyone could win.

    Looks delicious!

  7. Will have to check this out. I have been trying to replicate my grand-mother’s old blondie recipe to no avail. Not sure about the pecans, though….

    February 6, 2015
    • The pecans are really good in the blondies. Would love to see your Grandmothers recipe if you find it. I love old recipes.

      February 6, 2015
  8. Fabulous fabulous fabulous !
    I have never made blondies or eaten them. Still have to experience a lot of America even after 14 years :). These look super good Suzanne! How was the texture?
    Congratulations to Liz for wining it. Darn I was this close only if nobody else had entered ;).
    Love n hugs
    Sonal

    February 6, 2015
    • You don’t know how close you were. When I fed the names in and randomized you were #2. Thanks, I love blondies, these are really good just like a brownie but blonde, lol!!! Thanks Sonal.

      February 6, 2015
  9. As you say, who doesn’t love a blondie? 😉 I’d actually never heard of them until now. What have I been missing? I particularly love the addition of pecans. Definitely one to bookmark. 🙂

    February 6, 2015
    • Well, I know that you if tried them you would like them. Would love to see your version with spelt flour and all sorts of good healthy things in them. Thanks so much.

      February 6, 2015
  10. This looks great, never made blondies or eaten them. I’ll love the addition of cranberries and nuts, yummy.

    February 6, 2015

    February 6, 2015
  12. I love blondes, too–these look very yummy!

    February 6, 2015
  13. Looks great, Suzanne! I even liked Blondie as a pop band back in the day… 😉

    February 6, 2015
    • Oh yes, Blondie, they were awesome!!! Thanks Stefano. now I think I’ll have to head over to you tube and watch the video’s for Call Me and Rapture, my two faves.

      February 6, 2015

    Am like you in that I love a Blondie, but often they miss the mark of being spectacular. These look spectacular! Almost a crackly top? Appreciate having the recipe. Thanks for baking and sharing 🙂

    February 6, 2015
    • Thanks Liz, I love the crackly top on these, they are super moist and so delicious, Thanks so much,

      February 6, 2015
  17. I love blondies and can’t make enough variations- my daughter is obsessed with them! These look DELICIOUS!! Thanks for bringing them to the party. 🙂 I could cut them into hearts for Valentine’s Day next week- right? (and eat all of the “scraps” myself?) Yummy! Happy FF! 🙂

    February 6, 2015
    • Oh yes heart shaped blondies!!! Thanks so much Josette and thank you for hosting the party this week.

    I love that you’ve tried a bunch of different kinds of blondies and choose this one as the winner! Now I know just where to go if I want a winning recipe the first time! : ) That giveaway is FUN I missed that! I’d love to do giveaways on my blog, any tips?! I’m going to see how I could have entered that contest 😉 That sauce looks so good! Happy FF!!

    • Thanks Pamela. they turned out exactly as they should be I think. Thank you.

      February 6, 2015
  22. Snow storm outside… I wish I could have some of your blondies to make my day nicer! Beautiful as usual Suzanne!

    February 6, 2015
    • Ohh cold and snowing. Hot cup of coffee and a sweet is just perfect on such a day. Thank you so much. Hope your day gets brighter!!

      February 6, 2015
  23. You can not tempt me with brownies after I have finished with my birthday sweet celebration lol. This looks great girl

    February 6, 2015
  24. Gosh these look amazing! I’m heading off for the recipe straight away 🙂

    February 6, 2015
    • Thank you so much. Must say they are delicious. Served as a dessert warm, scoop of ice cream and a chocolate dulce de leche sauce. Rich and delicious.

      February 6, 2015
  25. Yours look even better that Mama’s Gotta Bake. I’ve still got to try making blondies, as I’ve never had them before. I like the idea of yours with the brown butter combo. Darn, forgot to save the recipe. Huh, will have to back in!

    February 6, 2015
    • Thank you so much, I have gone through a number of recipes and this is the best I have tried. They are really good. The brown butter adds to the overall flavor, loved it. Thanks Johnny!

      February 6, 2015
  26. I love blondies and these look fantastic!

    February 6, 2015
  27. Blondies bring back great memories of elementary school where they would serve them every Friday on Fish Day. Your blondies look amazing.

    February 6, 2015
    • I never had a blondie until I was an adult. Love them, also love chocolate chip cookies and they are sort of related. Thanks so much Sharon.

      February 6, 2015
  28. These blondies look like they have such a great texture Suzanne! Mmmm and double chocolate too – delish! 🙂

    February 6, 2015

  31. These blondies look really delicious, Suzanne. I love blondies. 😀 Thanks for sharing! Happy FF.

    February 7, 2015
    • Happy FF Jhuls, thanks you. I am a big fan of blondies, these are really good. Thank you!!

      February 7, 2015
  32. These blondies look scrumptious, Suzanne!

    February 7, 2015
  33. this blondie recipe looks to die for, iI need to try it!

    February 7, 2015
  34. This looks sooooooo good! I’d go to the fiesta just to eat these blondies. For real. Yum. I kind of want one right now.

    February 7, 2015
  35. Never had Blondie, Suzanne! An absolutely must try! Is it very sweet?

    February 7, 2015
    • It’s pretty sweet, they are really delicious but not toothachingly sweet. The recipe calls for a huge amount of sugar, 3 cups brown sugar packed. It’s more than I think I have used in a cookie before but they taste great. Thanks Francesca.

      February 7, 2015
  36. Wowee this looks amazing Suzanne. …feel like grabbing 1- 2-3…. 🙂

    February 7, 2015
  37. Such a great post! Some of the simplest things are the hardest to get perfect – and I’m with you 100 percent – I love Mama’s Gotta Bake! and have never had a blondie (even though I love them!) that I felt was the best! I like the idea of your additions! 🙂

    February 7, 2015
    • Everything she makes looks so good. Love her blog. The blondies are really good. You wouldn’t think they would be difficult but finding a good recipe is not that easy. These are as close to perfect as I have found. Thanks so much.

      February 7, 2015
  38. Hi Suzanne, I have never baked a blondie, will have to try your recipe, looks delicious!

    February 7, 2015
    • i had less than stellar results with blondies prior to this. Really like this recipe. Thanks Cheri.

      February 8, 2015
  39. What are blondes? being belgian, I never heard of it!
    They look freaking delicious too, de

    February 8, 2015
    • They are blonde brownies, same basic method but no chocolate other than adding chips or chunks. They really are good!! Thank you.

      February 8, 2015
  40. I meant, they look freaking tasty too! x

    February 8, 2015
  41. Empty all of these into my mouth, right now.

    February 8, 2015
  42. It has been a while since I baked a blondie…yours looks scrumptious. Perhaps I should make a batch now that the wind is whipping outside with all of its force creating white snow dunes.

    February 8, 2015
  43. I have eaten them before but never made them – – now I have no excuse. Thanks for the recipe 🙂

    February 8, 2015
  44. These look yummy! 🙂

    February 9, 2015
  45. Those blondies look gorgeous and so delicious! I LOVE blondies and made my recipe the other day for my brother’s birthday….he was a happy boy, lol! Blondies just make people happy! I love that you added pecans….my favorite nut in all the land! I’ll try adding some next time to my recipe!

    February 9, 2015
    • Love the pecans in them. Thanks Brandi, I have to check out your recipe again, I know it has to be wonderful.

    Oh I know Sheryl from “Mamma’s Gotta Bake!” how cool that you made her Blondies recipe, Suzanne! I don’t believe I have ever made Blondies, but have liked them when I’ve eaten them! 🙂 I think I will have to change that very soon! Thanks for the idea!

    February 10, 2015
    • Love blondies it’s like a chocolate chip cookie on steroids. They are wonderful and Sheryl’s recipe is delicious, thank you so much.

    February 11, 2015
    • This is a great blondie recipe, Sheryl has a wonderful blog, great recipes and beautiful photography. Thank you so much.

      February 12, 2015
  50. Being white chocolate lover I prefer blobdies over brownies:-)perfect texture love it, pass it on pls.. congrts Liz:+)

    February 12, 2015
    • Thank you so much, they were wonderful. I actually prefer blondies to brownies but they must have milk or dark chocolate chunks in them.

      February 12, 2015
  51. So, I just noticed the photo of the sliced blondies laying atop each other. Off the hook. Great focus and their moist, perfect textures is captured perfectly.
