a little girl time

a little red carpet posing

a little lizard lounging on the wall

a little badmitton

Caramel Bars
I've received a couple of requests for the Caramel Bar recipe. Here it goes:2 1/4 cups oats2 cups flour1 1/2 cups butter1 1/2 cups brown sugar1 tsp. baking soda1 tsp. saltMash all these ingredients in a bowl until crumbly. Then cut in half. Mash half of it into a 9x13 greased pan. Bake 10 mins @ 350. Take one jar of Mrs. Richardson's Butterscotch Caramel Sauce(you can cheat and buy the store brand if you don't really care how good they taste..in other words, stick with Mrs. Richardsons, trust me.) and combine in a bowl with 4 Tbsp. flour. Layer 2 cups of chocolate chips then caramel sauce. Then pat out the remaining dough and place on top. Cook for abother 20 mins at 350. Wait until completely cool to cut into squares.

Those caramel bars look delicious, but the blog you linked to is private. Could you post the recipe, or email it to me? :)

I had a feeling I was going to regret that pose later on - I wasn't thinking clearly after too much delicious food (and I don't think the pose worked like I thought it would, ha ha)

That pool looks divine. What a beautiful view too.

Yum. I will be making those bars soon. I can't decide if it was warm or cold from your pictures. Half the people are in swimsuits and half are bundled up in sweatshirts. Looks like fun.
