Crunchy Oatmeal Peanut Butter Oats 'n Honey Bars Yup! Just like Nature Valley’s, but better! Now I know I posted these copycat Nature Valley Oat’s ‘n Honey Bars a few months ago, but those were just the original. I mean we love the original over here, but we equally love the peanut butter. Really though, did you think we wouldn’t? And I mean it is pretty obvious we love us some peanut butter over here. Wasn’t it just last week that I posted this heavenly, insanely delicious, perfect warm weather treat? Oh fudge, this is getting embarrassing. So I think I need to lay off the peanut butter for a while….. Unless of course I come up with yet another delicious way to use it. Really, sometimes after I take pictures and I feel like the picture turned out just the way I wanted them to, I get SO excited to share the recipe with you guys. Seriously, could I get any weirder? I actually made these because Asher wanted some more bars to have as snacks. That girl knows exactly how to work me. These are really simple. No, really they are. Ingredients

English Lesson on Bob Dylan Advertisements Advertisements Robert Allen Zimmerman was born in 1941 and loved music, especially blues, from a young age. He formed several bands and played so loudly at a high school talent show the principal had to cut the microphone off. He switched to folk music because, he said: “The songs are filled with more despair, more sadness, more triumph, more faith in the supernatural, much deeper feelings." In 1963, he released his second album, “The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan”. Dylan continued to have an important impact on the history of rock for many decades. There is a debate today about whether or not Dylan should receive the Nobel Prize for Literature. 247 words Sources: and assorted biographies.

Croutons Recipe | How To Make Croutons | Croutons Recipes When I was in middle school I used to to work at my uncle’s deli during summers. Some of my job duties included making sandwiches, baking cookies, prepping salads, and making seasoned croutons using leftover sandwich bread from the day before. The nice thing about making croutons at home is the ability to make fresh croutons for salads and soups in small batches. However, I like making croutons because it helps me not to waste stale bread which otherwise may be tossed out and thrown away. Besides, how many times have you bought a box of croutons to make for a salad, only to let the rest of the box go stale (bye bye $3)? By making your own, you can make small batches which is great for being frugal and saving money. PS: Kids and grown-ups love snacking on them. Homemade Croutons Recipe Author: Savory Sweet Life Recipe type: Bread Prep time: Cook time: Total time: Serves: 3 cups Make homemade croutons at home with this easy recipe.

Try to look past how they look and focus on the fact that with 9 pretty common ingredients and 8 hours in the crock pot… you can make your very own refried beans. Are you sold?
