Crunchy Granola Bars

This week we made crunchy granola bars

The results were mixed.
First off, it was an easy recipe, and I literally made granola bars!
However, I'm not sure Nature Valley should be worried...
I thought they were a little burned (but that might have been my own fault), a little dry (I was 1/4 cup short on the honey), a little boring (I only had half the needed amount of nuts), and a little overly sweet (now that was not my fault). But, they were not terrible, I might try them again with (a) the proper ingredients and (b) some additional things like maybe craisins!
Totally mixed reviews though-my sister said they almost killed there they were so sweet, O thought they were horrid (typical), my cousin was quite interested, and a new taste panel-my two older brothers totally loved them! They might be my new testers, they ate almost the entire pan and thought they were wonderful. Who would have guessed!

Glazed Lemon Cookies

These were a hit! I liked them, they were super easy and fast. I loved that they were almost as good as my lemon sugar cookies but took way less time. I thought the lemon was a bit strong and I would use a more traditional cream cheese frosting-this glaze was too sweet. All in all though, this was a recipe to keep!

This week we made Raspberry Strudel Bars
They were a huge hit, everyone loved them (even me and I normally am not into cooked fruit!)

Success-They were quick, they were easy, they were delish-I would recommend these to everyone.

Cheddar Cheese Bread

I chose this recipe because it was so fast looking and because we have been eating a lot of (and loving) the Asiago cheese bread from Kneaders. I hoped this would be just as good.
