I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Oatmeal Jam Bars

Swap out a different jam every time you make them. Or mix together end of the jar bits that have been left in the back of the fridge since you don't remember when.

1 cup flour
1 cup oats
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tsps vanilla
1 cup jam flavour of your choice (I cleaned out 3 jars... mango, fig and strawberry for this one!)

Mix the flour, oats, salt and baking soda together. Then in another bowl combine the melted butter, vanilla and brown sugar. Add the dry ingredients to the wet. Remove 1/2 cup to be used later and set aside. Press the remainder into a parchment lined 8 X 8" baking pan leaving an overhang of paper for lifting later. Bake at 350°F for 10 minutes.
Spread the jam over the partially baked bottom, sprinkle the remaining 1/2 cup crumbling over the top and return to the oven for another 12-14 minutes.

Remove from the oven and cool for 30 minutes. Then place in the fridge for another 30 minutes. Now you can lift the square out of the pan using the parchment and cut into 16 squares. Wipe the knife off after every cut so it doesn't get too sticky.
