can anyone help?

Wow Ginger - 46! I'm not going to browse through all 46 to see if this recipe is in there, but here's one that I've made and its pretty good.
Recipe courtesy Paula Deen
1 package chewy brownie mix (recommended: Duncan Hines)
4 tablespoons butter
1 cup chopped pecans
1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Prepare the brownie mix according to the package directions. Pour batter into a greased 9 by 13-inch pan.
Melt the butter in a small saucepan. Add the pecans and sugar and cook, over medium heat, stirring frequently, until the sugar dissolves. Drizzle the caramel mixture over brownie batter and bake until a toothpick can be inserted and withdrawn cleanly, 25 to 30 minutes.
I think I posted the recipe for these before... They are really good, IMHO, and I'm not usually a big brownie or peanut butter fan.

I got this one years ago off the side of a Betty Crocker Supreme Brownie mix. It's really good and I make it regularly.
2-1/2 cups oatmeal, uncooked
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 tsp. baking soda
3/4 cup butter, melted
1 pkg. brownie mix + ingredients needed on box
1/2 cup chopped nuts
Heat oven to 350Â° F. Grease bottom only of 13- x 9- x 2-inch baking pan. Mix oats, flour, brown sugar, and baking soda; stir in margarine. Reserve 1 cup of the oat mixture. Press remaining oat mixture in prepared pan. Bake 10 minutes; cool 5 minutes. Prepare brownies as directed on package; stir in nuts. Spread over baked oat layer; sprinkle with reserved oat mixture. Bake 35-40 minutes; cool. Cut into bars. Yield: 48 brownies.

There are a few recipes like that on this site, http://www.howdididoit.com which is a fairly neat site.
I am looking for a good recipe for lemon curd if anyone has one. I've found a few but they are not so tart as I would like them to be.

Barbi, Paula Deane just had another brownie recipe:
Mix brownies according to pkg. directions. Place half of mixture into a prepared pan. Top with (3) Giant candy bars (ie; Hersheys milk choc.)Spread remaining batter on top and bake according to directions. They looked really yummy! Gina
Barbi, I do the same thing as Gina has listed above but I use a full brownie mix on the bottom and another full mix on the top. DH loves it when I use the Hershey Symphony bars with the bits of toffee in them.
I found this one today and need to send it to my daughter in law:
Brownie Peanut Butter Cups
15 oz pk Brownie mix
1/3c very hot water
12 miniature peanut butter cups
Preheat oven to 350Â°. Line 12 muffin cutps with baking cups.Combine brownie mix, water, oil, and egg. Beat 50 strokes.
Fill muffin cups 2/3 full.Press peanut butter cup into batter until top edge of candy is even with batter. Bake for 20-30 minutes until brownie is set.
My mom makes this and it is delicious and easy. I'm sure you could use homemade ingredients rather than store bought items if you wanted to. If you want to make a big bowl of this for a crowd I would double it.
Death by Chocolate Trifle
1 box of brownies made according to the box and cut into small pieces
2 boxes chocolate mousse (prepared)

In a large bowl layer brownies, then mousse, then cool whip, sprinkle with toffee bits, and continue to layer until out of ingredients.
