   Sorry for the double post just now.  I didn't think that was possible.  I 
re-post if nothing goes through for about an hour.
   This is usually given to Charles H. Grosvenor (1833-1917), but never with 
a date attached.

HASH BROWNIES--3,150 Google hits, 2,130 Google Groups hits
   "Hash brownies" is not in the OED and not in John Mariani's ENCYCLOPEDIA 
OF AMERICAN FOOD AND DRINK (1999).  Gertrude Stein had them, but was this name 
used?  Remind me to check the LOS ANGELES TIMES.
   You should never have "hash brownies" because they're illegal, immoral, 
and fattening.
