This is something I have been working on for several weeks now. "perfecting"

We have eaten a "bar" around here that is yummy with nuts and coconut and oats etc. Although it has TONS of sugar and syrup... I have "perfected" my own healthy recipe... AND for the first time ever... entered it into the Better Homes & Gardens Contest... cross your fingers and wish me luck.

Oh my gosh. That sounds like HEAVEN. You are killin' me on my diet...but then, I guess I have to take responsibility, too. After all, I do choose to come here on Fridays, right?

This is one I am definitely going to save and try when I abandon my diet.

And good luck with the contest!
