  4. Now that's a great combination and one I've not seen often. I'll have to try these. I do like using oat bran - but it's usually in buns or muffins.

  11. This blog is dangerous when someone has insomnia and an industrial craving for sweets-- someone like me!

    The recipe sounds fabulous, ladies; I'll be grocery-shopping this weekend and I only need a couple more ingredients to have everything it requires.

    Looking forward to taste testing!!!


    Love your blog; keep up the good work!
