Ever start baking only to realize you don't have enough flour to make that sinful recipe you were craving? Or maybe you've cut gluten out of your diet and are frustrated with dessert recipes on line? I'v. Then this 6 ingredient peanut butter and jelly bar recipe will be the answer to your problem. 

These are super simple to make and come together in a snap. If you use gluten free oats, this can also be a great gluten free snack. The kids absolutely loved these. Mr.B has been on a peanut butter and jelly kick lately, so he's in absolute heaven with these bars. These are soft and chewy and the jelly adds an awesome gooey sticky layer of sweetness. I'm thinking of making another batch, for a Tea Party I will be having next month. They are so quick to whip up, and would be a wonderful sweet treat to have with our tea.

Peanut Butter & Jelly Bars

1 C Kraft smooth peanut butter
2/3 C sugar
2 eggs
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 C quick cooking oats
1/2 C strawberry jam/jelly

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9x9 baking dish with parchment paper.

In a large bowl mix together the peanut butter, sugar, baking powder, eggs, baking powder and oats; until a crumbly dough is formed. Press 2/3 of the dough into the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Spread the jam/jelly evenly over the dough, in the baking dish. Crumble remaining dough over jelly; evenly covering the jelly.

Bake for 20-22 minutes; until the tops begins to brown slightly. Cool completely. Remove from baking dish, but using the parchment paper as handles. Cut into bars. Store covered, in the fridge for up to 5 days (if they last that long!).

No Yeast Old Fashion Cinnamon Rolls

 These delicious cinnamon sticky rolls have been in my family for over 40 yrs. No yeast is required, so you can whip up a batch of these in no time. Still tender, sticky sweet and delicious! Ever since I can remember Mom would make these as a special treat. It wasn't too often, but every once in a while, we'd come home to these no yeast cinnamon rolls, as an after school snack. Growing up, this is what I thought cinnamon rolls were. I wasn't aware that there was a yeast version of cinnamon rolls. As much as I LOVE the yeast version, this no yeast version seems to make an appearance more frequently here at home.  Since there is no yeast in the dough, it does not need to rise for 30 minutes before being rolled out and baked. When I worked in the retirement home the residents were always excited when I made these cinnamon rolls. They said it reminded them of their childhood. It was amazing seeing how happy a simple recipe could make them. I don't make these very often and

Black Forest Roll Cake

Light and fluffy cherry and whipped cream filling is rolled in an airy sponge cake. 13 years ago, I made a dinner that I was totally proud of. Not only did it taste wonderful, it looks fantastic too. I was so proud of myself that I took a photo, which I wanted to share with my friends and family. Only I didn't know how I could share it with everyone, at the same time. Then a thought came to me- a blog!!!  I've always been a foodie. While growing up, I'd often watch talk shows, just to see the cooking segments. I'd sit with a pen and paper, quickly jotting down ingredients and directions, to hopefully recreate recipes at home. I still remember a beet salad I begged my mom to let me make, asking her to buy raspberry wine vinegar for the dressing. It turned out to be something neither of us enjoyed, and up until a few years ago, Mom still had the vinegar in her cupboard.  I first started my first blog, Hun... What's  for Dinner?, as a way to share recipes with my famil

Easy Balsamic Glazed Salmon

 This is a healthy, easy and impressive way to prepare salmon. The glaze is simple, yet flavourful, and this will quickly become your favourite salmon recipe. Salmon is a reddish fish, that is tender yet firm and it is a favourite amongst many, due to it's buttery flavour. It is low in saturated fat and high in protein and is also a great source of vitamin B12 and Potassium. These are only some of the reasons salmon has been deemed a super food. When I worked at the natural food market, I cooked quite a bit of salmon over those 3 years. It was a staple on our hot buffet and one of our most popular items. Our patrons preferred it prepared simply with dill, lemon, salt and pepper. While this is one of my favourite ways to prepare salmon, sometimes you need a little variety. The balsamic vinegar becomes wonderfully sweet as it bakes in the oven. The Dijon adds a slight tartness, to balance out the sweetness. With only a few healthy ingredients, this recipe is deliciously simple and wo
