Two of my favorite things combined. Cheesecake. Brownies. Its a win-win. Right? Right! (secret: I used to hate cheesecake. weird right?)
Before I get to the recipe though, let me fill you in on whats been going on with me. I want to take a moment to thank everyone for all the prayers and thoughts concerning my Grandpa. He is doing better and they have moved him to a nursing home. Although he doesn't have much time, we're very lucky that he is still with us... even if just for a little while longer. So please keep him in your thoughts!
This past weekend I was so super busy! Made a few cakes, held a baby shower for a friend, trying to help another friend with her wedding planning (of course I'm doing the cake lol) that is coming up on August 4th, and also working during all this and trying to help my family concerning my Grandpa. I've just been busy! I don't mind it all, just makes me tired. lol
On another note, who's a fan of Linkin Park? I AM! I am a HUGE fan and have been since I was younger. Recently I found out that they are going to be in Noblesville (northern Indiana) on August 25th. Now considering that my birthday is August 15th... don't you think that would be the PERFECT
birthday present? I'm just throwing that out there.. lol

Okay, okay.. I know you're hear for brownies, not me. So here's your recipe!
Preheat oven to 350. Spray a 8" or 9" square baking pan with baking spray.
1 stick (1/2 cup) butter, melted
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup flour
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 cup cocoa powder (unsweetened)
1 tsp vanilla
In a mixing bowl, combine butter, sugar, and eggs. Mix well. Add remaining ingredients and mix. Pour into baking pan.
1- 8oz pkg cream cheese (room temp)
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
In a mixing bowl, combine all ingredients and mix well. Using a spoon, put blobs of cheesecake batter on top of brownie batter. Using a knife, swirl the cheesecake batter it. Don't mix! Just swirl. :) You will have extra cheesecake batter. SAVE THIS! I guarantee you'll wanna use it for the next batch of brownies.. and it'll save you a step. :)
Bake for 25 minutes in preheated oven, rotate halfway through baking. When you take them out of the oven, let them cool in the pan for 20 minutes. Cut into squares, serve with a HUGE glass of milk. :) (chocolate milk for me lol)
