Does your family deserve a little treat? How about some sweet dessert bars for summer? I know that my family would certainly gobble up some sweet dessert bars. You see, we're an everything in moderation kinda of household. As long as the kids eat a nice, balanced diet and get in some activity each day, if they want a treat every now and again, that's perfectly fine with me. Plus, baking can be such a fun, family friendly activity! My wee ones love to get into the kitchen with me and it's been a great way to kill some time during those summer storms we seem to get daily. If they know they have a treat coming their way at the end of a kitchen sesh, they're more than happy to throw those aprons on. Bwah!
