Update


The rain has stopped and the sun came out...YEA!!! I decided to do some baking today and here is the result.Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
This is a recipe I got from
Farmgirl's
site and gave it a try. I had to tweak a few ingredients though but it still came out yummy (thanks Susan). I didn't have enough blueberries so I used strawberries as well. The recipe calls for a tsp. of almond extract and when I opened mine it was evaporated.....guess I don't use almond extract too often, huh? In it's place I used a tsp. of lemon extract and that did the trick. I also used steel cut oatmeal rather than old fashioned, but I figured the steel cut was plenty old fashioned enough. They taste delicious, neither too sweet nor too lacking in sweetness because after all, if it's a dessert type bar, I want it to taste like a dessert or what's the use, I ask you.

I had lots of strawberries to use up so I also made some preserves to use on bread and possibly even put over ice cream....peach, that is! Yum, yum, although I can only have a very small amount of any and all desserts but I do look forward to each bite and savor each one completely. Gee, ya'think I like sweets just a little bit?

I'm so glad you had such delicious success with my blueberry breakfast bar recipe. I was wondering how they would taste with strawberries, and your other changes sound interesting. Thanks so much for taking the time to write me and let me know you'd made them. And I'm envious of your strawberry preserves and peach ice cream! : )
