Vanilla Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

I made these vanilla peanut butter chocolate chip cookie bars from Feed Your Soul Too.  I saw this recipe and wanted to try the Peanut Butter & Co. White Chocolate Wonderful.  It is pretty wonderful on its own but also very delicious in these bars.

Coconut Meringue Peach Bars

I made the coconut apricot bars from Betty Crocker’s Cooky Book.  I didn’t have apricot or pineapple preserves, which the recipe called for, but I did have peach, so I used that.  This recipe is made for a 13×9 pan, but I can tell you the cookie dough will not fit into a pan that size.  I put it in a square cake pan and that worked perfectly.  Ironically, this cookie also has meringue.  I didn’t plan it that way, but I’m finding out that I really like meringue.  This is yummy while it’s still a bit warm but best after it’s cooled.  This is definitely for the sweet tooth, as the preserves and the meringue are sweet.

5 Pumpkin Recipes for Fall

There was a little crispness in the air yesterday, so I think fall is here.  One of my favorite fall flavors–even more so than apple–is pumpkin.

Two for Tuesday: Lime

Since the temps are reaching record highs, it feels like summer.  One of my favorite summer flavors is refreshing lime.  How about some papaya with a splash of lime juice?

Or these key lime juice frozen yogurt bars?  I don’t have a recipe for these, but just eyeballed some key lime juice, honey, Greek yogurt and a crushed graham cracker sheet to make four pops.
