  • This month I have several different recipes both submitted and found. The Energy Bars recipe was given to me to include in Recipe Roundup.

  • This week’s adventure is on the sweet side and is one of my favorite cakes to make.

    The main component of this cake is Oreo cookies. For many fans of the Oreo, I could probably stop right there and they already are hooked.

    As a fan of this delicious chocolate sandwich cookie, I like adding it to pretty much anything sweet from cookies to brownies and especially ice cream.

    This recipe is very easy and the result is Oreo delight.

  • So this column feels a little bit like déjà vu with the added twist that my other half, Rebecca Ricks, and I discovered we have a Bacon Number.

    What’s a Bacon Number, you ask? It sure sounds tasty.

    Read on.
