I discovered an easy and addicting new snack recipe this
weekend, while thumbing through a magazine featuring country singer
Trisha Yearwood. She was sharing favorite
family recipes from her cookbook.
Since I did not bring the recipe home with me, I was going from
memory, so this is my version of the recipe. I'll do some homework
and try to find the correct directions. Please forgive me if I
forgot something, but they turned out entirely too good just like
Sweet and salty snacks
40 saltine crackers
1 stick of butter (half cup)
1 cup brown sugar
8 oz. chocolate chips
Spread saltines on a cookie sheet. Melt butter and brown sugar
in saucepan over medium heat and cook for 5 minutes.
Drizzle over crackers and place in the oven at 350 degrees for 5
minutes, until bubbly. Remove from oven. Sprinke chocolate chips
over hot mixture and spread as they melt. Cool and break into
I made the mistake of placing the pan back into the over to melt
the chocolate, so it cooked a bit more. Don't do that. Just let the
heat from the mapley goo melt the chocolate so you have a nice top
layer. It didn't matter though, we devoured them in a matter of
minutes and the kids loved them.
Oh, I should know better but I couldn't resist, and it is so
addicting! The cool part is that it only takes four inexpensive
ingredients that are almost guaranteed to be in your kitchen when
that need for sweet and salty attacks.
So I am now initiated into mom-hood of broken bones. Delaney
broke her wrist at school playing "sharks and minnows." Today was
the big day and she's now sporting a bright blue cast. So, I guess
all I can say is that it wasn't as scary as I thought it'd be and
thank goodness she's not left-handed. And now I can sign her cast.
Talk to me in eight weeks!
The doctor was so great. We're lucky
to have such a great pediatric group here. He kept her smiling,
even with the prospect of eight weeks without softball or riding
her pony. Thanks doc!
I just received this message from a MOM reader and thought that
we'd better share this recipe from MOM Magazine, Summer 2009 with
"Hey MOM - your summer issue last year had a recipe for
lemon-blueberry squares and they were soooo good. I kept the recipe
but can't find it. Do you think you could send the recipe?"
Thanks for such a great magazine, Kristen
Blueberry Lemon Squares
Directions: Mix flour and powdered sugar until
blended. Mix in butter, cut into small pieces with a large fork
until dough holds together when squeezed. Press evenly over the
bottom of a 9 x 13 inch pan. Bake at 350 degrees until crust is
golden brown, usually 20 to 25 minutes. While the crust is baking,
whisk eggs together with sugar, lemon peel, lemon juice and baking
powder. Stir in blueberries. Pour egg mixture over warm, baked
crust. Return to the oven and bake until the filling is firm and
does not move when gently shaken, usually 20 to 25 minutes.
Sprinkle with powdered sugar and let cool at least 15 minutes.
Serve warm or cool.
If it's out of season and you don't have blueberries in your
freezer, try ordering frozen, dried or powdered blueberries from Sunset
Valley Organics. They are delicious. With a recipe
recomendation like this, I'm off to make some lemon-blueberry
squares right now. Enjoy!

In the spirit of MOM Makeover, I decided on a whim to have a
little mini-makeover myself....I went from being a blonde to
If it wasn't for the beautiful and sunny weather we've been
having, I would try to convince you that it was just a natural
seasonal shift in my hair color, but I don't think I'm going to get
away with that... :) It's a couple shades darker than my
natural, and I kinda like the change. I'll go lighter again I'm
sure, but it's fun for now. Thank you to the lovely ladies at Epic
Day Spa for doing such a great job!
Do you color your hair? Why or why not? Comment
by 9 a.m. Monday March 8th and I'll pick one random
person to win an awesome shampoo and conditioner
set kindly donated by our MOM Makeover sponsors, Heartspring
Wellness Center & Samaritan Plastic and Reconstructive
My answer? I do (obviously) color my hair - my natural color is
a mousey brown color, and all though I do have some natural blonde
highlights, the overall color is pretty dull. I like having nice,
fresh color - it makes me feel like a new person!
Don't forget to nominate a deserving MOM for our makeover HERE!
