Hi, there! I have to admit something - I'm looking forward to this series because it's about cooking!! I love to cook. I have this happy image in my head of cooking a big, complicated meal, maybe an italian aria playing in the background, a glass of wine and no interruptions. This is a FANTASY. Reality is that I have two big dogs underfoot, trying to steal whatever it is I'm making, a preschool who is ALL up in my business and a hubs who is in the mix somewhere, probably needing something. They're all hungry so I'm in a rush to get SOMETHING on the table.
I look for recipes that are quick, nutritious and healthy and leave leftovers. And for snack recipes, I need something that will satiate the family sweet tooth, travel well and not go bad in a day. One of my favorite snack recipes is this granola bar recipe. It's like magic. EVERYONE likes it. And you can do some great customizable things with it.
