. So, I’m a little disappointed in myself.
This post was originally supposed to be a giveaway for my dear readers (i.e., $10 off a stunning floral bouquet) but because of this or that, it took me way too long to get this post completed.
Therefore, I’m just going to have to promote the bejeezus out of FTD bouquets. And Lucky Leaf Pie Fillings [the sponsor of this post].
And I can vouch that the FTD bouquets are lush, gorgeous, and the perfect centerpiece to give your home the most lovely
Spring touch because FTD sent me a complimentary arrangement of my choice, of which I just could not pass up the Lavender Fields Mixed Bouquet
… can you blame me?
The flowers [and vase] came with a packet of flower ‘food’, so the beautiful arrangement lasted a good week or so on our kitchen counter. It was always so refreshing turning the corner from coming in to our apartment and seeing bright, luscious flowers that you don’t get too often living in the city.
But in addition to the free
bouquet, Lucky Leaf also sent along four pie fillings and three very Spring recipe cards.
So let me speak of one of the most delicious bars I have ever made. I kid you not. These things were gone in a flash at work and I didn’t stop hearing about them until long after. They were goOooooOOOooood.
Blueberry Snack Bars.
Sweet, moist, dense cake-like bars topped with a creamy cheesecake middle, rich blueberry pie filling, and finished with crunchy walnuts. Pa-LEASE. Makes my mouth water.
And you know what slays me?
The fact that they weren’t completely homemade.
I can hear the gasps from the true bakers of the world but you know what? Sometimes you do what you gotta do. And that’s that. This time around the quick and dirty method was just what I needed though, because I made these late at night after a work event. But I guarantee you no one would have guessed how easy peasy these were!
Hopefully by this time I’ve convinced you to at least take a gander at the lovely products FTD has to offer, I do believe a very special Mother’s Day happens to be tomorrow…
Or at the very least, I hope you’re already gathering together the ingredients for these bars. Oh you are? Happy baking! .
P.S. you’ve probably noticed I don’t have any of my own pictures on this post, huh? Well I had a bit of a snafoo with my camera and they were deleted from my memory card. So…this post…just needs to be done. Sowwy guys.
