Can you believe it's March?
I know…I can't either!
Especially when it looks like this out my window…
…Hurry up Spring!!!
So, on my "snow day"off, I made myself a cup of hot tea and curled up with my new favorite magazine, MaryJanes Farm. The perfect mix of articles about organic foods…sewing/quilting/crafting…using essential oils…and general farmhouse-style living. You can check out their regional farm girl bloggers (city farm girls, suburban farm girls, beach-y farm girls, etc.) or connect with them via Facebook.
And what better way to enjoy a cup of tea…than with a sweet treat?!
Mary Catherine has been dying to learn how to cook…bake…create meals, so we started with a simple cookie bar recipe from my Eagle Brand cookbook.
Magic Cookie Bars
Bake Time: 25 Minutes
1/2 Cup (1 stick) butter
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1 (14-ounce) can EAGLE BRAND Sweetened Condensed Milk (not evaporated milk)
2 Cups (12 ounces) semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 1/3 cups flaked coconut
1 Cup chopped nuts
1. Preheat Oven to 350 degrees (325 degrees for glass dish). In a 13 x 9-inch baking pan, melt butter in oven.
2. Sprinkle crumbs over butter; pour Eagle Brand evenly over crumbs. Layer evenly with remaining ingredients; press down firmly.
3. Bake 25 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool. Chill, if desired. Cut into bars. Store loosely covered at room temperature.
Makes 2 to 3 dozen bars
I'm off to Jazzercize to burn off these calories…but more importantly keep my blood sugar in check!
I hope you're staying warm where you are...
