Dairy Queen Needs To Worry!!

We’ve flipped the calendar to June now, but Mother Nature is still not co-operating!  It’s cool and windy and grey and wet and disappointing! But here at Sweet Times Two, we’re just going to pretend it’s warm and proceed with some summertime recipes.  Today, I’m going to share with you two variations on a simple […]

Lunchlady Peanut Butter Bars

Recipes for these bars are all over the internet and they don’t vary much from one recipe to another.  I have to admit that I was first attracted to the recipe because “Lunchlady” was in the title! What is a lunchlady anyway?  We didn’t have lunchladies when I went to school nor when I was […]

Baking Bedlam!

Baking bedlam…14 children, 7 adults, one kitchen!  Yet, we managed to produce three pans of yummy bars to share.  The hands-down winner was Oreo brownies chosen by our volunteer, Victoria.  Victoria has the uncanny ability to come up with kid-friendly treats to bake month after month.  I was surprised when she told me that she wasn’t […]
