Ever since I saw this photo of chocolate brownie squares on sheets of waxed paper, I can't stop thinking about them. That's why I'm making brownies to serve at a beach bonfire I'm hosting in honor of my sister. Brownies are a great portable dessert because they are best when made in advance. They're also a crowd-pleaser: who doesn't love a good fudgy brownie? I'll be using a recipe I've tried before, Food & Wine's salted fudge brownies. These brownies are so good, it's hard to have just one. I love this recipe because it's super easy and involves no electrical gadgets. All you need is a trusty whisk!

I have a serious weakness for sweet-salty foods. One of my favorite ice cream treats as a kid involved saltine crackers, and the salted caramel ice cream at local sweet shop Bi-Rite Creamery is to die for. The sweet-savory deliciousness extends far beyond desserts to everything from fig pizza to watermelon and feta salad. What's your favorite dish that combines savory and sweet tastes?
