Hahaha – live on the wild side indeed! And tastebuds really are funny things, aren’t they? Glad you liked them!

Pineapple cancels out butter and chocolate? Then I obviously need to keep some in my house at all times, considering the amount of butter I’ve been going through lately. =)

Beautiful! I didn’t get the thick crust either, and I couldn’t taste the cinnamon, or the rum. 🙁 But I made up for that by putting some in the whipped cream.

June is a big month for losses in my family too. Baking has always helped me through it a little!

I never knew that about pineapple. What a lovely theory. 🙂

i did not know that pineapple had such powers, but know that i do, i plan to exploit them! that’s a beautiful post…let’s hope everyone going thru something like this has friends like you.

Pineapple and chocolate, sounds like something Pierre Herme would come up with.
Looks good.

You’re doing a great thing putting this message out in the blogosphere, bravo!

Your brownies look delicous, btw.

What a wonderful thing you are doing. Your friend is truly blessed to have someone like you who cares for her. Lovely pictures.

It is truly a wonderful thing you are doing! I certainly will be making a donation. It will be 5 years tomorrow that I lost my best friend of 37 years to breast cancer.

Your brownies look so good. Hmm…I didn’t know about the powers of pineapple.

Pineapples is an intriguing idea. Great post and I have been noodling about Click for Bri. Thanks for encouraging more people and making them aware of this fellow food blogger.

my brownies had a much thicker crust – i think i over beat the eggs 🙁

your brownies look great – i’m intrigued by the idea of pineapple 🙂

and my heart goes out to bri. i haven’t ever come across her blog, but reading about what she is going through just breaks my heart. but what amazes me is how wonderful and caring the food blogging community is – she is already over 50% towards reaching that goal! thanks for putting the word out for her

I also lost my father to lung cancer, and as I read Bri’s saga, caught up on Jen’s journey and made my brownies for this week’s challenge I remembered how even at his sickest, brownies fresh from the oven brought a smile to my father’s face. Brownies DO make life a little better.
