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!).

I originally saw this recipe on Pinterest (via Six Sister's Stuff) and it had my tummy rumbling so hard, that I knew I had to make it. I had chicken in the freezer, so decided to make this chicken on a day where I would be at school all day. Nothing like walking into the most amazing smell, when you get home from a busy day of work! 
I love that this recipe is so simple, yet it is out of this world delicious. Sweet and savory combine, to coat this tender chicken. It literally fell apart as I tried to remove it from the crock pot. Once tossed with the thickened glaze, I served it with cooked rice/fried rice and some fresh snap peas. It was an amazingly fantastic crock pot meal, that I will be making again and again.

Bacon-Mozzarella Accordion Garlic Bread

A fresh baguette is stuffed with bacon, cheese and garlic butter, for an addictive appetizer.



When we used to go out to eat, if it is on the menu, we would order a bruschetta type accordion bread. I thought I could make an awesome garlic bread, using the same concept, but adding ingredients that we totally love. We often like to top leftover garlic bread with mozzarella cheese, to make it seem new again, so I wanted to incorporate that between the garlicky slices or baguette. And we all know how AWESOME bacon is right??





This is a super simple, yet deliciously impressive appetizer. I'm sure your guests would all Oooh and Ahhh over the ooey gooey bread with bacon. They would be totally CRAZY if they didn't!! The kids really loved this too. The inside was soft and garlicky, full of cheese, bacon and nice fresh green onion. The outside was crispy and buttery.

8 Ways to Have a Fun and Delicious Halloween at Home

Wondering how to spend Halloween this year, due to the pandemic? Well I have 8 fun and delicious ways to make an at home Halloween, tons of fun!



2020 has been turned upside down. My kids have not seen friends, or the inside of a school since March. While we do have our social bubble, this bubble consists of family and a few select friends. Being someone who could be vulnerable during these crazy times, I have been trying to make every day life as normal as possible. With Halloween fast approaching, I have been thinking of how to make sure my children have a super fun day, but not put our bubble at risk. It would be much easier if my health was 100%, but we will make the best of our Halloween at home.
#1 Visit a local pumpkin patch


Even though my health isn't the greatest, we haven't been living like hermits. We don our masks, bring hand sanitizer and make sure to social distance. So a trip to our local pumpkin patch, to pick our pumpkins, is one way we will be bringing a bit of n…
