Coconut Chocolate Pecan Bars

When you are shopping for the ingredients necessary for this recipe – which if I had to guess ( based on what was in my grocery cart) you will only need to gather a bit of unsweentened coconut flakes and more butter – you should probably also grab a roll of TUMS.   I am not sayingContinue reading “Coconut Chocolate Pecan Bars”

Peach and Mixed Berry Crisp

Does anyone control themselves at local farmer’s markets and fruit stands along the highway or even in the freezing produce aisles of the grocery store?  Which makes me beg the question…why are grocery stores so darn cold in the midst of summer?  I, no joke, along with my grocery bags and list, tote along anContinue reading “Peach and Mixed Berry Crisp”

Spring cleaning.  It is something that I want to do.  No, let me make it clear…it is something that I wish I wanted to do.  It needs done – no doubt.  Winter tends to be the season to collect and gather, making life cozy.  Or cluttered.  As I look around my house, it is clutterContinue reading “Coconut Strawberry Oat Bars”

Coconut Chocolate Macaroons

These are not what I had envisioned.  Nope.  Not at all. I envisioned lightly browned coconut dollops, studded with mini chocolate chips.  That was the picture I had in my head.  However, what emerged from my kitchen held no resemblance to my original idea.  Zero.  Zip.  Zilch. You see, when you fold chocolate chips intoContinue reading “Coconut Chocolate Macaroons”
