Spring Cookie Bars

Hey everybody! How is your weekend going to this point?

You’re most likely questioning what this submit is all about since I actually solely ever share meals and recipes round these elements! I’ve determined to begin a brand new collection on the weblog to doc a bit of little bit of the behind-the-scenes. I’m not certain how authentic my title “Life Recently” is, however I believe that fairly nicely sums up what the collection is going to be about.

Mainly something and every little thing. I will likely be sharing some :behind-the-scenes”, some favourite finds from across the web, a few of my favourite kitchen merchandise, heaps and LOTS of child footage, and so on. My household actually is my entire world so I really feel like I’m lacking out by not documenting that a bit of higher. I additionally need to allow you to into my life a bit extra and share extra from the “crew” behind this weblog. The crew being principally the toddler, babe,  and me ?. Effectively, and the husband is a large a part of this weblog too. He’s my largest help and he takes care of the accounting (simply between you and me…the ONLY “c” I ever acquired was in a university math class. Math is unquestionably not one in every of my strengths!?)
This collection will seemingly be heavy on the images and light-weight on the writing. Though, I believe typically I can get fairly talkative. And about unusual issues like the kind of butter I like… Ahem. Oh, and I can assure there will likely be far more emojis than anybody ought to ever use in a blogpost.

I don’t have a set schedule for these posts however I’m aiming for one every month or two.

And to begin off, this submit is just about all from final Sunday (Easter). I purchased the boys matching outfits (and matching bowties) and took means too many footage of them. Hey, gotta take benefit when they’re little and suppose it’s cool! ?


Bentley is SIX months. How did that even occur?! He actually smiles each second that he’s awake and is the happiest little man. He did promptly blow out of his diaper inside about ten minutes of being on this outfit. Fortunately it solely made it to his pants (oh, and my gown), however fortunately he had some back-up khakis! 

Gray participated in THREE Easter egg hunts and we nonetheless have a ginormous bowl filled with sweet. He will get 1-2 a day so I’ve a sense we’ll nonetheless have sweet come subsequent 12 months.

Additionally in that bowl are about 15 common sized sweet bars. Speak concerning the BEST Easter egg hunt ever — that was a significant rating (wrote about that one here). And being the nice mom that I’m…this was a really actual situation the day after Easter: 

We additionally had a household Easter egg hunt after which one with Grandma, Grandpa, and all his cousins which was completely his favourite one.

Gray spilled one in every of his eggs on the bottom and promptly ate it from the grass ?

Easter dinner we spent with household and I made a four-layered carrot cake from scratch after which these Spring-cookie bars. I’ve made a unique carrot cake yearly for Easter for the previous 5 (perhaps 6?) years and have but to seek out an absolute winner. This 12 months I attempted three completely different recipes and all had been good, however not fairly good. One among these years I’ll nail down the proper carrot cake and share it right here!

These cookie bars although? INCREDIBLE. They begin with browned butter, so can you actually go fallacious there? That is undoubtedly a recipe I’ll need to share quickly with you all! SO keep tuned.Cookie Bars
