Genius Golden Grahams Smore Bars

A couple housekeeping items before we get to the deliciousness here. Notice the new watermark gracing the corners of my photos? Isn't it lovely? Hopefully it will help keep people (who are not me) from passing off my stuff as theirs. Sometimes I'm so disappointed in humanity. Also, just above the actual recipe details, you'll… Continue reading Genius Golden Grahams Smore Bars

Robbed, Impersonated and Pissed Off

I just have to warn you that I'm extremely angry right now. I came home from a lovely Memorial weekend of camping in the great outdoors to find that someone has stolen content, copy and photos from Bakerlady and passed it off as his own. So here's my great big "you thieving rat" post. "Boy… Continue reading Robbed, Impersonated and Pissed Off

Oatmeal Lemon Creme Bars

I love all things lemon. I always have lemony recipes hanging around to try. My plan for this week was to immerse myself in all things yellow happiness fruit baking related. When I went to make two lemon desserts today I found half my lemons had vanished. They were in the fruit basket two days… Continue reading Oatmeal Lemon Creme Bars

Raspberry Oatmeal Cookie Bars

In the past several weeks I made two monumentally bad choices. Probably more, but these two will probably haunt me the rest of my life. The first mistake was trying salt n' pepper pistachios for the first time. Please hold your judgement until you find out the other thing I've never had before. Pistachios pale… Continue reading Raspberry Oatmeal Cookie Bars

Avalanche Bars

I took my daughter back-to-school shopping last week. We had a grand old-time preparing for the big first day of school. It was all fun and games until I realized that new school clothes meant she was actually heading off to school. Gulp. She started Kindergarten yesterday. My baby. She even (gasp!) rode the bus!… Continue reading Avalanche Bars

Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Bars

My nieces came over unexpectedly today. My gluten/dairy free sweet lovelies. I had just pulled a Blueberries & Cream Pie out of the oven...which, (of course) they cannot eat. It's absolutely unacceptable for my sweet girls to come over to Auntie's house and not get a treat. But what to make? I remembered seeing this… Continue reading Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Bars

Snickerdoodle Blondies

I've never been super attracted to blondes.  I'm more of a dark and handsome kind of gal. Brownies over blondies every time. Until now. These buttery bars have a secret weapon - glorious cinnamon sugar deliciousness swirling all thru the sweet dough. In addition to being a bar version of one of my most favorite… Continue reading Snickerdoodle Blondies

Nanaimo Bars​

I first saw these amazing bars when visiting Victoria for my sister's birthday weekend. My mom and I popped into a little coffee-house to pick up some liquid caffeine and while we were waiting I drooled over the divine treats in their glass cases. These caught my eye as I'd never heard of them before.… Continue reading Nanaimo Bars​

Monkey Bites

No monkeys were harmed in the making of this dessert. I guess it's called monkey bites because it has bananas in it, but really it should be called moist-delicious-awesomeness-banana-bites. Yeah, I guess Monkey Bites rolls off the tongue a little easier. I prefer my baked goods as ladies, not gentlemen. As in, no nuts. But… Continue reading Monkey Bites

Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzel Bars

I didn't think it was possible, then somebody said "pretzels". My life will never be the same.  I thought my Reese's Peanut Butter Bars would never be topped. That they were the ultimate. The addition of pretzels is beyond amazing. These bars are essentially the same as a chubby hubby truffles, but they take 5… Continue reading Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzel Bars
