MUCH OF IT COMES NICELY PRE-PACKAGED.

Okay, this one particular recipe is especially for all my friends who think this dish is magical. Forgive me, but it’s not 🙂 At all. I was so embarrassed for years to share this recipe, because it’s way too simple. So easy it almost feels like cheating… Especially, when almost all the ingredients come “pre-packaged.” Yep, we’re talking canned and boxed ingredients. Ugh…

CAN’T STOP THE NAUGHTINESS.

Okay, to be totally ‘transparent’ with you guys, I’m making these bars because:

1. We’re invited to a Christmas Eve eve party tonight

2. I don’t have that much time on my hands right now

3. It’s somewhat safe: adult and children will love it. Except for those who have nut

allergies (I guess it’s not that safe after all)

4. I have all the ingredients in my pantry AND fridge

5. It looks and tastes fantastic!

I KNEW IT… YOU MISSED BEING NAUGHTY.

Guys, over the years, I’ve ’collected’ a good amount of Weck jars. They’re ohmygosh so adorable! I love love love them! I have them in different shapes and sizes. They’re totally versatile, cute to boot, and completely reliable. They’re like… well… my PIE (Partner In Everything,) Eric. I’m sure he’s so smiling right now as he reads ALL my posts. Well, what can I say he’s sort of my editor, you know 🙂

IT CAN BE LESS PERFECT.

I have to be totally honest with you friends, I’m EXHAUSTED. It’s almost Christmas, and here I am with a mountain of tasks I’ve generously given myself to complete. I set a few goals that I’m not even sure I can reach. Have you ever felt like you’re simply ‘done’? Isn’t a Christmas break supposed to be time to reflect, recharge, refocus, and reboot?

DEFINITELY NICE AND DELICIOUS!

Last summer, Nate’s buddy Scott was raving about the Chicken Roti he had on his trip to St. John’s, USVI. Well first of all, lucky kid! How awesome is that to have a trip to the Caribbean? But secondly, finding a resto serving West Indian dishes. One word: Curry. I love love love curries!

COME IN SANTA, IT’S COLD OUTSIDE.

Goodness… Do you realize there are only 2 more weeks to Christmas? Unreal! This year has gone by so very fast! I went out with a friend last night to do much needed shopping (well, I lied, let’s say much wanted shopping, instead 😉 And ah… all the bright red color accents everywhere. Gorgeous! Red tableware, bakeware, aprons, small appliances, pots and pans… All of them yell, “Take me home with you.” All right, all right, I hangout at a cooking shop, yet again 😀 I thought I already have most of what’s in there, but no, I managed to come home with more items. Classic Fedra.
