Toffee Bars

If it weren’t for Facebook, most of the people who read my blog wouldn’t even know it exists. It would be living a sad little life with no followers, no readers, and no love. But, because of Facebook, my website has a life! It has readers! It gets love from all of you! Since Facebook plays such an important role in this website, I decided to share a little something my mom wrote on there, advertising my blog:

Need some happy time? A place where butter and sugar are not a sin and you will not only learn something, perhaps your rest-of-life favorite dessert, but you will enjoy the experience even if you never crack an egg. Miss Buttercup is not only an incredibly wonderful baker; she is also quite witty, with an easy reading style.

Update: Hershey's "Perfectly Chocolate" Chocolate Cake

Hershey's "Perfectly Chocolate" Chocolate Cake
Last night I went over to Sean and Jen's house for dinner. Jen's sister Amy is in town from Michigan with her husband Matt and adorable sons Luke and Gabe. I met the boys last year for the first time, and was fortunate to experience the youngest, Gabe, eat his first cake at just 1 year old. Naturally, I so excited to give him cake again this year.

Since I was baking for a purpose and knew my cousins love chocolate cake, I decided to stick with what I knew would be delicious. I stuck with the same Hershey's "Perfectly Chocolate" Chocolate Cake I made in January, but I made a two notable additions to it.

Oatmeal Scotties…aka Breakfast Cookies!

Oatmeal Scotties...aka Breakfast Cookies! :)
I’ve been so excited for Spring Break. I get a week off, a chance to sleep in, to cook dinner, go out on a weekday, to stay up past 10pm…in short, it’s amazing. And if the weather would just clear up a bit, it would be even more spectacular!

Since April 1st was the last day before Spring Break, I decided to bring some cookies to work. How else were we expected to make it through what was sure to be the longest day of work ever?? The answer: with baked goods, always. :)
