Caramel Apple Cheesecake Bars

December 6, 2016 in bars - 1 Comment

At the school where I work, it is tradition to have a chili cook-off on the first teacher grading day of the year.  It works a little something like this.  You make a chili.  You bring the chili to school in a crock-pot.  You drop it off and someone gives…

Coffee Toffee Bars

October 2, 2016 in bars - No Comments

Well, it’s officially autumn.  The leaves are falling in droves, the air is crisp and cool, and the gourds are out in full swing.  The weather today has been cool and cloudy, and all I want to do is curl up with a blanket, a cup of coffee, and a…

Fig Bars

September 5, 2016 in bars - No Comments

I have three 100-year-old maple trees in my yard.  One in the front, one on the side, and one in the back–all closely surrounding my house.  My house is like a cocoon, tucked neatly under the blanket and protection of the leaves.  These trees I love in spring and summer,…

Raspberry Truffle Brownie Bars

We went on a short camping trip this past weekend, albeit the weather was windy and a bit drizzly.  For me, camping is a time to relax, be with family, and eat a bunch of junk food we normally don’t eat.  In fact, I take the kids with me to…

Every year, our neighborhood has a 4th of July parade and party for the young children.  It starts with a community bike ride at the end of the cul-de-sac, and ends at the local park with games and food.  The kids bikes were packed (as we were going camping a few days…

I have the lucky priviledge of having my parents and my husband’s parents living close by.  And I love it, because my kids get to spend time with both grandparents, something I wish I had growing up.  This Mother’s Day, I had the pleasure of having my in-laws over for…

Creamy Lemon Bars

April 21, 2016 in bars - No Comments

The weather in the Pacific Northwest has been unusual, to say the least.  Sunny and in the 70s and 80s off and on for the past two weeks–this is not April weather people! Where’s my rain? And my cloudy, 60 degree weather? I am feeling a bit gypped by Mother…

Peanut Butter Fudge Bars

February 26, 2013 in bars - 5 Comments

There’s just something about peanut butter and chocolate.  I don’t know what it is, but it makes me happy.  Every summer during my elementary years, my family would drive 7 hours to camp at Lake Shasta.  There, at a dusty campsite, we would meet my aunts, uncles, cousins, and grandparents for a…
