Sweet Meet

Over the last school year we have had a Sweet Meet each tri for the students and teachers to get to know each other better.

Chatting over coffee and sweets...its a good thing!

For me it was just an excuse to bake something,
 and apparently we Northerners are known to make good pastries.

So last Friday we had our final Sweet Meet and the theme was brownies.

I made 6 different kinds of brownies with the help of my daughter.

5 of which were new recipes for me.
Other students help bake some yummy bars.

When you have a day that you are going to
make lots of brownies
this is you friend...
Foil on one side and parchment paper on the other.
It made cutting the brownies a snap
and clean up so easy.

These snickers brownies were a huge hit,
you can find the recipe on Unique Sweets FB page.

We also made some
Snickerdoodle bars
Mango Bars
Pretzel Crusted Peanut Butter Bownies
and Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Brownies. 

The countdown is on for our return to the States
after spending a year in Costa Rica
in Language school.

We are so excited and for so many different reasons,
but one thing I am looking forward to is
baking with "normal" ingredients and using my
shiny, red, Kitchen Aid mixer again!
