Tantalizing Tuesday

Oh My Heck-I just made the yummiest dessert ever!!!  The direct recipe can be found HERE.

Smores Cookie Bars
  • 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/3 cups all purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 king-sized milk chocolate bars (e.g. Hershey’s)
  • 1 1/2 cups marshmallow creme/fluff (not melted marshmallows)
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease an 8-inch square baking pan.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until light. Beat in egg and vanilla. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking powder and salt. Add to butter mixture and mix at a low speed until combined.
  3. Divide dough in half and press half of dough into an even layer on the bottom of the prepared pan. Place chocolate bars over dough. 2 king-sized Hershey’s bars should fit perfectly side by side, but break the chocolate (if necessary) to get it to fit in a single layer no more than 1/4 inch thick. Spread chocolate with marshmallow creme or fluff. Place remaining dough in a single layer on top of the fluff (most easily achieved by flattening the dough into small shingles and laying them together).
  4. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, until lightly browned. Cool completely before cutting into bars.

Baseball 2011

This was Kadens first year of baseball. I wish he had enjoyed it more. Sor far we have tried gymanstics, karate, flag football, and baseball, all of which he has disliked!

This was Kailers second year in competetive baseball. Needless to say I am glad to have a little break before football begins.

End of the School Year 2011

 They all made it through the school year.  Many days I wondered if my boys would be held back, but hallelujah-they made it.   They enjoyed field day, and ice cream party, pioneer day and spending the last week having fun with their teachers.  Mrs Will and Mrs Amicon were great!!  I loved these ladies.  Hopefully my kids will have hreat teachers for 2nd and 4th grade!

Adoption 5K

Since about Feb. I have been a non running momma!
  This has been a bummer because I find I need it in order to help keep the stress at bay.  Heaven knows i need an outlet with a husband working 90 hour weeks, 4 kiddos with all their many activities, I many days feel like a single mom.  Anyway, since I couldn't run I registered my fabulous daughters for a 5K.  We trained a little bit and the did an awesome job.  My little Morgan is a runner, she said Paige kept slowing her down and she just wanted to go go go. 

I am trying to train for the Boulder 1/2 Ironman.  It takes place in August, honestly I am just barely running again and there has been little time to fit the training in.  I registered $250 last year.  That is my problem, so much money but it is just not coming togteher.  So I would like to do a shorter distance(maybe an olympic distance).  I have until the end of June to get a small refund of $75 on the IRONMAN.  I will reevaluate then.  Meanwhile, I am going to register my little swimmer Morgan for a kids Tri.  She is on the swim team this year and is loving it.

Mother's Day 2011

These are my fabulous kids on Mothers Day!  And I made this tasty dessert!!!!
Not much to post about Mother's Day this year.  I did get to spend time with the family and take a nap:)
