The Brownie Diaries: Virtual Author Event with Leah Hyslop

Thursday April 14 at 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Join us for a delicious virtual conversation with Leah Hyslop!

The Brownie Diaries: My Recipes for Happy Times, Heartbreak and Everything in Between (April 12, 2022) includes fifty modern, mouthwatering, and witty recipes for the world’s favorite chocolatey treat from food writer Leah Hyslop.

Leah firmly believes “brownies have a near-miraculous ability to make us feel good. A single bite sends sugar and serotonin racing through the body, ready to patch up confidence or piece together a shattered heart.” Her recipes are delightful, proving there really is a brownie for any occasion. Super fun and totally user-friendly, The Brownie Diaries offers brownie-based solutions to all life’s challenges, big and small. From brownies for comfort, like the “Feeling Lonesome Tonight” brownie (an indulgent concoction for those solo nights made from pantry staples such as peanut butter and crumbled cookies), to brownies for celebration, such as the “I Think I Love You” Brownie (with raspberry cheesecake swirl to confess your undying love), you’ll find the perfect brownie for every situation in Leah’s charming recipes.

Discover brownie classics (and some brownie-adjacent favorites) like:

  • Ultimate Fudgy Brownies
  • First Day on the Job Blondies
  • Netflix and Chilli Brownies
  • “Did I Mention I’m a Vegan?” Brownies
  • Lonesome Tonight Brownies
  • Emergency Brownies
  • Spoil Yourself Brownies
  • Happy Easter Brownies


Leah Hyslop is a food writer and editor.
