So I think (fingers crossed) Spring is finally here. The weather was gorgeous today. I opened all the windows, lit my new fruity summer Yankee Candles and smiled I knew I had to post something today but had nothing planned or in reserves…whoops. I was going to post yesterday but the Irish Soda Bread I made was horrible. Horrible!!! I swear. It was the most vile thing I ever tasted. Not sure what I did wrong but next time I’m going to go with a different recipe. Now back to this Spring day. I wasn’t going to ruin it by slaving away in the kitchen all day so I decided to make a childhood favorite….no-bake cookies. What is not to love about these little gems? They have an almost fudgy texture and are held together by delicious oats…yum! Enjoy!!!

I got a picture of my cat, Bitty Boy (real name Nermal) that I thought I would share…isn’t he gorgeous!
