The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap
I signed up for the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap with with Lindsay and Julie. It is a secret Santa style swap- so I am not supposed to contact my matches until after the swap! Lindsay and Julie told me not to ruin the surprise. I am terrible with secrets, this is killing me! I want to call my swap matches and ask- Did you get the cookie bars? Did they arrive in bars and not crumbs? Do you like them? Do you really ? Huh? Huh? Oh yeah, this is torture! So far, I have received one dozen cookies from my secret Santa and they were oh- so- yummy! I baked over three dozen bars and shipped one dozen cookies to three different people! I can’t wait for the responses!
These bars are so dreamy and delicious, your kids will be fighting over them, Amy’s kids were- LOL!
All of my favorite cookie bar ingredients, Oatmeal crust, caramel, chocolate, roasted almond slivers, marshmallows…..YES!!
This is what the picture looks like in the magazine- oh please let my cookie bars turn out like these!
It came out better than the photo!
Sunshine on my cookie bars, makes me happy, sunshine in my eyes….la dee da……Caramel Nut Revel Bars for The Cookie Swap

How to make ANY web page printer friendly

You know when you go on a web page and you want to print out a recipe (who wants to take their lap top into the kitchen when they're rolling out pastry??!!!

1. Well, you save this link below in your book marks on your computer.

2. When you see something you want to print, copy the web page address (at the top of your screen),

3. open up this print friendly link

4. and paste the link where you are told to (at the top of the page).

The brains start working and making the page all nice for your printer to digest! Saving you paper & ink money.

I hope this helps you all.
