I have good news and bad news.
The bad news is one sentence blogging week is over. So, while I'll make an effort not to be as blabby as usual, no promises.
The good news is my back is starting to feel better. I can't thank all of you who commented enough. I can't do marathons sessions in the kitchen yet but I can put together an easy recipe...like these applesauce spice bars.
And these babies are EASY. They're made from ingredients most of us have in our pantry. They smell divine while they bake. There's fruit in them so they're healthy. That's the grand slam of baking, if you ask me. I doubled the glaze and waited to apply it until the bars and the glaze had cooled. I sliced the bars before glazing. Don't do that. The glaze runs between the slices and then it looks skimpy on top. And you won't want to waste a drop of this delicious glaze. Although the bars were great without the glaze (check out Pamela's poem here), they were amazing with it.
