Successful Sweets!

Good day!

Goodness, gracious!  37 followers and 21 comments on my last post!!  It's all too much, thank you all=)

Friday night, my brothers band, The Great Flood Catastrophe, had a show.  I go to about 85% of their shows and sell their merchandise for them.  So most times, I make some kind of goody and have in on a plate for people to come and take.  It helps the merch sales, for sure!;)
So I made a Raspberry Coffee Cake.
Pretty much, roll the dough out into a rectangle.  Spread a mixture of Cream Cheese, Egg, Sugar, and Vanilla on top.  Then spread Raspberry Jam on half of it.  Roll it up, let it rise for a bit, bake, frost, then eat!

First time trying it, and it got a lot of great feedback.  Everyone who tried it, loved it!  It's always so sweet when people tell you something you've made is good.

Today, we went to my grandpa's for Father's Day.  He loves Chocolate Chip Cookies, but I was on a time crunch, so I just made Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars.

People always go for the middle!
They got eaten, and my grandpa loved them!  So I'd say, a success indeed.

What my dad wanted to do for Father's Day, was stay home and relax.  He had a looong week.
