It is time again for Secret Recipe Club reveal day! Woo-hoo! What is the Secret Recipe Club? It’s a lot like Secret Santa, but with recipes. Each month you are assigned a blog. After selecting a recipe from that bloggers repertoire, you make and post it on reveal day. It is a great way to find fun recipes and blogs. I like how it gets me to actually sit down and go through another person’s blog. Blogs are a lot of work and take time to put together. Instead of skimming through just the new stuff (as is usually easier when we see a new blog) it is fun to really sit down and go through what else the blog has to offer. Fun stuff!
My assignment this month was Cindy’s blog, Hon… What’s for Dinner? Along with delicious recipes, she also has cookbook reviews (a weakness of mine!) Yay! We found a recipe to try right away, Peanut Butter & Jelly Bars. Super simple to make (and with very little converting to be gluten free, just use gluten free ingredients) AND they looked mighty tasty, too! I used plum preserves for the filling, but feel free to use any jam you like. These bars make a great after school snack and we’ll be making them to take on picnics this summer. I am excited to try other nut and seed butters in the recipe (such as almond butter and apricot jam). Yum!
I apologize for the photo. This was the lone bar I was able to hide until my family went to bed (after they snarfed down the rest of the pan). Of course that meant taking a pic in bad lighting, but sometimes a sacrifice must be made when treats are this tasty! I’ll add a better photo when I make these again (preferably when my family is out of the house- LOL!)
