Wow….it's been a long time. Cooky Recipe Number 30: Wunder-Bar Cookies and a whole lot of other bak

Sunday, August 03, 2014

Here are the Wunder-Bar..not sure why they have that name. They are shortbread with nuts…I used pecans.

I'm not sure what these are but I baked them and took a picture.

Ginger molasses cookies

Brownies with mint chips for they model club contest

I actually won an award :-)

Matzo brittle (or matzo crack as it has been called) for Passover

Chocolate chip cookies

Gluten free lemon cake for my BFFs birthday

Gluten free chocolate cake with mint glaze for my brother's birthday

Peanut butter cookies

Anzac Biscuits for a friend's birthday…he's Australian

And lastly…..yellow cake with mocha icing for a friend's birthday yesterday :-)

I've been busy at work and keeping up with my running. I even did a 60 day runner challenge from April to June. I didn't follow the running plan because the beginner was too easy but the intermediate was 5 days/week and I wasn't up for that. The food plan was mostly vegan. I won't stick with the vegan but I have been eating more fruits and veggies so that's a good thing. Recently, I've been enjoying the PiYo DVD set to complement my running.

    Wow! I've been thinking it's been a while since your last baking photos post to make us all hungry. :) Sounds like you are getting back into your training - glad to hear you might be eating more vegan options. Hooray! :) Every little bit helps. Your anzac cookies look good, I'm making mine this week for Anzac Day Remembrance. mmm

    I love looking at your baked goods! I would want to try the Wunder-Bars, the lemon cake, and the peanut butter cookies the most. Congrats on the 60 day running challenge, that's awesome! I feel like I've been hearing about PiYo a lot lately. They offered a few classes of it about a year ago at my gym and I really enjoyed it. Okay, I just went up and scrolled through your pics again and I really want a piece of that lemon cake! :)

    I got so excited when I saw wunder bar cookies, because ... I just came back from a trip to Canada where I got a candy bar by that name that you can only buy there (or online), but yours look scrumptious too. I wanted to get a Nanaimo bar but didn't get around to it, we had a busy sightseeing schedule.

    Hey Nat!
    As always, your baking looks so yummy! How do you get the gf baked goods to fluff up? All the gf I have made is flat and dense. Almost like rubber! Where did you find the Matzo Crack recipe? I'm looking for something like that for my Aunt. I think she'd link it.

    Congratulations on your award. You will have to post. Picture of. Your models!

    How do you like PiYo? I have the DVDs, but haven't started them yet. Maybe this is a good week to do that!

    Hi Nat! Good to get an update and see all your latest baking! The Matzo Brittle especially looks like something I would go for in a big way, but all of it looks great.

    Hey Nat, I was just thinking about you today!
    Boy you sure have been busy. Glad to see you are still enjoying the running. You are doing the new Chalene Piyo? It didn't really seem user friendly to me, especially for those of us with physical limitations. I love doing pilates on the machines in the studio I go to.

    All your baking looks Yum! as always :-D

    Take care,
