Anything covered in sweetened condensed […]

Paula Deen's Chocolate Chip Gooey Butter Bars

  When I was growing up my step-mom was a horrible cook.  I’m not exaggerating at all on this one.  It was pretty bad.  Everything was over cooked or bland.  She did have two things she made that were good – hamburger gravy and what she called “Gooey Bars”.  When I went away to college […]

What could possibly make a Rice Crispy Treat taste better?  Well, chocolate […]

Campfire Brownies

Are you a camper?  I assume everyone goes camping so it always surprises me when I hear people say they don’t.  Being out under the stars with the smell of trees and a campfire are like therapy to me.  When my kids were young I took them camping because it was something we could do […]
