Cake Mix Peanut Butter Bars

Oh joy, football season is upon us, and it is my absolute favorite time of year.  Time to cheer my Seahawks on to victory, bundle up in cute scarves and tall boots, eat pumpkin-spiced things, and narrowly avoid rear-ending somebody 4 times a day because I am so easily distracted by the beautiful fall leaves.… Continue reading Cake Mix Peanut Butter Bars

Applesauce Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting

It appears that summer may be skipping the pacific northwest this year.  I think our average high has been about 70.  This is not a complaint, on the contrary, I’m super happy about it, I’m just telling it like it is.  Hopefully it will mean lots and lots of snow for us in the fall… Continue reading Applesauce Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting

Caramel Apple Bread Pudding

Well all, fall is officially here, and I have been too busy to enjoy it so far (to say the least!)  We have been moving to a new home, putting our “old house” on the market, preparing for a trip to Disneyland (in 3 days!) dealing with a sickie poo kiddo, and generally been running around like… Continue reading Caramel Apple Bread Pudding
