CrackHead in the Kitchen

A blog I shamelessly cyberstalk is "Angel in the Kitchen". Her recipes are like food porn to me. I consider almost all of them to be comfort foods, simple to make, and all look delicious. Every time she posts a new recipe, I want to make it! Veruca Salt decided she wanted me to make the Oatmeal Chip Bars. You don't argue with Veruca. (Plan ahead if you want to make these: You need 2 sticks of artery clogging softened butter, and 2 eggs at room temp.) OK- I think I'm done with the hyperlinks now. If you made it back to this blog, thank you, and congratulations.

Step 1: Clean the kitchen. "^*&%$$#@^!!"

Step 2: Tell the kids to stay back at least 4 feet. (I can never get them to pose together and both look at the camera. Brats.)

Step 3: Make it, bake it, shake it. I use an Easy Bake Oven, but a full size oven works, also.

Step 4: Repeat Step 1, Clean the kitchen. "^*&%$$#@^!!" (The maid has the weekends off, and she's been harassing me to buy the Easy Clean Dishwasher)

Step 5: Try not to eat the entire pan yourself. Pack some extra in the kids' lunchboxes to share!

**Blogger Research Note: I used a combination of semi-sweet choc chips, and milk choc/peanut butter swirl chips. I don't know if you could add peanut butter to the recipe? That would be awesome! The bars will be gooey, so don't over bake them, thinking they aren't cooked. Like I did. And use fresh butter. Mine wasn't so fresh. But the co-workers will eat anything, so it's all good.

Haha, awesome. I would like to say that I have an easy bake oven too! And it drives me crazy. I can't fit a full baking sheet in the oven and instead have to leave the door partially open when cooking.

Should I be disturbed by the number of dirty wine glasses in your kitchen? Do we need to schedule an intervention?
