My First Daring Baker's Challenge: Nanaimo Bars!

The January 2010 Daring Bakers’ challenge was hosted by Lauren of Celiac Teen. Lauren chose Gluten-Free Graham Wafers and Nanaimo Bars as the challenge for the month. The sources she based her recipe on are 101 Cookbooks and

I was very excited to do this month's challenge as my entire family on my Dad's side is from Canada, and this is supposed to be a true Canadian dessert.

I was a little disappointed with the way that mine came out, but it may be because I used the weight watchers version instead of the one that Lauren gave. I will be posting pictures later, I stole the one above for now! :)

Better Late Than Never, Right?

To say that I have been busy for the last few weeks would be a very large understatement. I don't think I have ever been so worn out in my entire life! So, that being said, I did not get the chance to upload pictures of my amazing dinner that I mentioned, especially since I couldn't even find the camera cord to get it hooked up with the computer anyway. Ah, my life is so blissfully unorganized.

Anyway, it's been about 4 weeks since we brought little Bella into our lives and unfortunately, 4 weeks hasn't seemed to have any effect on her resolve to "have fun" on every surface of my brand new home (for lack of a better term!). I don't know what we are going to do about her! I love her to death and she's just a sweetie, but I can't take mopping my floor twice a day EVERY SINGLE DAY. I'm definitely not a woman destined for extreme housework, that's for sure. I've been thinking about taking her to the PetsMart puppy training class, but I have no idea if they even address the issue of potty training. I guess I will make a call and see.

Hopefully things will slow down very soon so that I can catch up on my crazy long to-do list and get back to some fun things. I will be posting my very first Daring Bakers Challenge, so look forward to that!
