Raspberry Bars

July 2, 2018 in bars - 2 Comments

Raspberries are by far my favorite fruit.  I love them in anything and everything.  Growing up, my mom, sisters, and I would go to fruit orchards and pick pounds of raspberries, blueberries, and peaches.  We froze the berries and canned the peaches.  There’s nothing like fresh fruit in the winter…

Cranberry Oatmeal Bars

Is it spring yet?  I know the calendar says so, but yesterday on my way to work it snowed.  Now mind you, the Pacific Northwest rarely gets snow this time of year and of course it didn’t stick at all, BUT IT SNOWED IN APRIL!!  Ahh!! What is the world…

Toasted Coconut Lime Bars

February 4, 2018 in bars - No Comments

I love everything citrus.  They are such a versatile fruit, and because of that,  I buy large bags of them regularly at Costco.  A few weeks ago I had extra limes and made limeade for the kids.  It was a big hit, especially since they rarely have a drink with…

Blondies

I can’t believe that 2017 is almost over.  The old adage is certainly true, that time flies when you’re having fun, but it flies even quicker with young kids.  And with a 7 and 5 year old, time slows down for no one. Since working full-time, I have been very…

Cranberry Bars

Besides just the overall merriment that comes with this holiday season, one of my absolute favorite memories around this time of year is baking.  Usually I have my staples of certain desserts I like/have to make, but try to add a few new items that hopefully make it to my…

Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars

June 12, 2017 in bars, Uncategorized - No Comments

So I realized after making these bars that I have a subconscious obsession with chocolate and peanut butter.  You can see it with these recipes: peanut butter balls, peanut butter bars, peanut butter fudge bars, pecan-oreo fudge bars, and peanut butter chocolate surprise. And that’s just a few. Chocolate and peanut butter…

Chocolate In-Betweens

Once a year, my grandparents would drive up from California and stay with us for a week.  My grandma always made cookies to share once they arrived.  I vividly remember, as a child, sitting down to lunch and having this large, rectangular, orange Tupperware container make its way around the table.  In…

7 Layer Bars

January 23, 2017 in bars - 1 Comment

Today hit a high of 50 degrees.  You’d think it was spring, based on all the people I saw wearing shorts and sweatshirts around downtown Portland.  It almost will be, since we dealt with freezing temperatures for about a month now.  20 degrees warmer and we’re pulling out the lighter gear…
