Hi everyone. I know . . . it’s been a while. Sometimes sadness falls on us, and other things become much more important. My husbands youngest sister passed away last week, after a long valiant battle fighting Colon Cancer.  We traveled to San Francisco for the funeral, so we were gone for several days.  One can’t help reflect upon their own life during […]

Magic Bars . . . I think they are magic. They are my very favorite Bar Cookie! You know, you’ve all made them. You’ve all eaten them toasty warm from the oven. Everyone love the edges, because they are extra chewy, caramelized, toasted Coconut deliciousness.   Once the edges are all cut away, it seems that those left […]

I seem to navigate towards anything lime. Lime popsicles, Lime slush, Lime jello. Lime Bars are yummy . . . maybe even better than Lemon Bars. My picture simply doesn’t do these sweet little bars – justice.  I ended up taking pic’s after dark, when after all attempts –  without a flash, simply failed me!  When you […]
