Alton Brown's Apple Pie: This recipe does call for two unusual items: a pie bird (Google it) and grains of paradise. It’s not that I’m trying to be difficult, but this is the only apple pie I’m ever making so I wanted to get it right. Hope you like it.
"This brownie tip might change your life forever. For extra-gooey, or I say "ooier" brownie centers, bake your brownies for 15 minutes, take them out for 15 minutes, then bake them till done. Recipe: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/alton-brown/cocoa-brownies-recipe.html"
