National Cream Cheese Brownie Day - Feb. 10th; Chef Morou Ouattara

Chef Morou Ouattara
Chef Morou (as he prefers, over his surname) was born and raised on the Côte d'Ivoire in West Africa. His cooking style is a combination of French, Middle Eastern and African. He appeared on Iron Chef America and Meet the Next Iron Chef. His restaurant, FarrahOlivia in Virginia, is described as "modern tribal." When it closed, he and his brother opened Kora which serves Italian food, but four nights a week FarrahOlivia lives on in the Kora private dining room. He developed his own line of spices, based on how he cooks in his restaurant, called UNIKeats.

Cream Cheese Brownies, now there's something to celebrate on February 10th! Delicious, marble-y brownies... and now I am more than a little sad that I don't have a family recipe for them, because I'm pretty sure I need some.

When you're asking family members for recipes, don't forget to ask the kids. They may not be cooking yet, but they may have special things that they love (maybe their mom's brownies) so be sure to get that recipe and include it. You might even note with the recipe, "These are JR's favorite!"

Available at Amazon.
