GIFT DAY 131 :: 30 days of love: start with mothers day

11 May

I begin again tonight. Starting with LOVE.

Instead of my promise to do a Gift A Day, I am experimenting with a new twist on it — I am giving away some good old fashioned L.O.V.E. every day for 30 days.Let’s see what happens!

To start, in honor of Mother’s Day, I thought it fitting to share this: Mama Sling’s recipe for some serious treats.Here’s the thing — I don’t eat this way anymore but boy does it bring back good finger licking memories.

(go check it out and give her some link love!)If you’ve never tried a Gooey Butter Bar, well…. brace yourself. The sugar rush alone will send you to Mars and back.

So today, my LOVE of the day, is sharing my mom’s recipe with you.

It’s so good I once caught my dog, PUP, standing on his hind feet, paws on top of the counter, eating the middle out of a fresh batch of Gooey Butter Bars — right before we were supposed to take them to picnic.

(TRUE CONFESSION: I just cut the ends out of the pan and took them to the picnic.)

Anyhoo….. here’s the recipe!

Mama Sling’s Gooey Butter Bars
1 stick Butter 
1 egg 
1 package yellow cake mix 
1 tsp vanilla 
8 ounce cream cheese 
2 eggs 
2 cups powdered sugar 
Nuts (optional) 

Mix butter, egg and cake. Pat into bottom of 9×13 inch pan. Mix cream cheese eggs powdered sugar and vanilla. Pour onto cake mixture in pan. Bake in 350 degree oven for 30 minutes, dust with powdered sugar. 

And tomorrow, I wil share a recipe for the kind of treats I can eat these days — Gluten Free Oatmeal Cookies.  

I’m convinced in thirty years there will be a generation of adults walking around this world reminiscing about all the odd food their parents made them eat — like green smoothies, kale chips, and gluten free oatmeal cookies. 

More tomorrow,
Lovemore (fearless),
