We are having record highs here in the Dallas area, and whew...we must quickly eat these Millionaire Bars before they melt. I did make a fresh pitcher of iced tea, and I'll pour you some. I had to borrow my basket from my coffee table because the high temperatures have been hard on my flowers.
The kids and I were excited to try this recipe for twix-like bars, and they didn't disappoint. They learned how to make shortbread, and homemade caramel, and to use a thermometer.
We also took a field trip to Carlo's Bake Shop (of Cake Boss fame). I had a gift card that a dear friend had given me, and I thought it would be fun to share with my sweet grands that come to my cooking camp. Caiden chose cookies and cream cake, and Cissy chose red velvet. They only ate part, and took the rest home.
Here's my sweet fairy garden, that I had to spiffy up. At least it looks cool and refreshing.
I used to be able to enjoy sitting on this sectional every evening, before the record high's barreled in. Hopefully, I'll be back out there again soon. Right now about all I do is go out and water and then head back to the A/C.
I am sharing this with these lovely parties:
