I am sad that this is the final reveal because I have enjoyed this group so much and have gotten to try so many delicious recipes. I feel very lucky that I was part of this group and was able to share my creations and in return meet a dynamic group of bloggers. I will miss you all!
A few of my favorites from reveals over the past few years:
Green Onion Spread
Just to name a few of my favorites- there are so many!
This final month I was given Nicola's blog, Lemon and Cheese
. Nicola lives in London, England and is a librarian. Her blog is named after two of her favorite things- lemons and cheese. I also love both of these things and that was a great way to start! Nicola has a large variety of different dishes on her blog and many ingredients I am not familiar working (she even has a recipe using shark steak). I debated between Cannelloni Nicoise Style
, Yellow Thai Chicken Soup
, and Cheesy Potato and Sausage Bake
. I ultimately let Kellen help me make the pick and he had his heart set on M&M Oreo Cookie Bars
. These bars are so easy to make and require minimal dishes, minimal fussing with layers, and a short baking time! I loved these bars (and they were great to use extra Halloween candy- yes we still have some). I also loved that this was a recipe for an 8 x 8 pan. Many time, I feel like dessert recipes make so many portions it either, does not get eaten, or we over eat in effort not to waste it. However, we can take care of an 8 x 8 pan!
Thank you for sharing this delicious recipe Nicola!
Thank you to everyone who made the Secret Recipe Club a success. I will miss it very much, but am so happy that I had the opportunity!
1 stick butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 Tbl vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
18 Oreo cookies, chopped
1/2 cup M&M's
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line an 8 x 8 baking pan with foil and grease with cooking spray.
Melt the butter and wait a few minutes for it to cool. Add the egg, brown sugar and vanilla and whisk until smooth.
Add the flour and fold in to batter- do not over mix. Stir in the chopped Oreos.
Spread the batter into the prepared baking dish, smoothing the top lightly with a spatula.
Evenly sprinkle the M&Ms over the top, lightly pressing them down into the batter with a spatula.
Bake for about 20 to 22 mins, until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool in the pan for 30 mins before slicing.
