Best Tip you are likely to get today…

Today was cookie baking day–successful once again!  Lots of cookies baked and lots of laughs–Thanks Denise! xo
It occurred to me again today, as Denise and I were cooking together, just how social food really is.  No matter what the occasion- wedding, birthday, funeral, lunch date , cookie day or everyday  we gain so much more than a full belly by including eating and/or cooking into our social schedules.  We gain insight, laughter, stories, hope, love and so much more by sharing a meal and cooking together–it’s not a wonder why I place so much value on good food and good eating–how about you?

Tip of the Day:  Denise asked me today, why I was putting the empty butter wrapper back in the fridge–Well, it makes the best pan greaser you ever had!  No more saran wrap or parchment paper, no more too much/not enough butter–just use your butter wrappers to grease that cake pan!  So Easy!

Magic Cookie Bars
 1/2 cup bitter melted
1 1/2 cup graham wafer crumbs
1 can condensed milk (like Eagle Brand or Rooster Brand)
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup coconut
1 cup walnuts or pecans chopped

In a 9×13 pan combine butter and graham crumbs and press down firmly to make a crust.  Pour condensed milk over base and spread evenly.  Sprinkle chips, then nuts then coconut over the milk and press down lightly.  Bake at 325 for 20-25 minutes.  Cool completely before cutting into squares.
Yummy!  See how long you can make this one last–I bet it won’t be till the end of the weekend 🙂
