Who blogs? What is a blog? Why blog? B L O G…hmmm – If you say it out loud it’s kinda funny…blog. I must confess I asked all these questions and more. Like, “Why am I doing this?”, “Does this even matter?”, “Why am I writing this if nobody is even going to read it?”—until…someone commented on my blog. Then the questions became, “Why does this make me so happy?”, “Is it crazy that I get so excited when I get a new follower?” I have a counter on the blog now and I am fascinated to see how many people are reading my blog. Who are you? How did you find me?
Why don’t you leave a comment? And now it’s become somewhat of an addiction – borderline obsession, okay who am I kidding ? I’m hooked – I am a blogger-addict.
I have met some great new friends here in my little blogger world, bakers-cooks-chefs-food stylists. One of my new friends that I enjoy chatting with is Heidi from Heidi Bakes. She tempts me weekly with sticky, gooey, sugary sweet treats. This week she baked something that I just couldn’t resist, Creamy Chocolate Streusel Bars. Chocolate bars filled with …what?… cheesecake, that’s right I said it, cheesecake. These bars came out of the oven smelling like a vanilla chocolate cheesecake, can you smell it? I chilled these all afternoon and then I was ready to photograph these little darlings when tragedy struck. The door bell rang and I stepped away. Daisy, my fat beagle gobbled up the entire plate. I think this was a blessing in disguise because I would have eaten the whole batch myself. You can find the recipe for these and many other delectable desserts at Heidi Bakes. The only thing I changed on the recipe was I added 1/2 teaspoon of salt to the dry ingredients, 1/4 teaspoon of salt to the cream cheese mixture and I used pecans.
