Ain’t no sunshine when she’s gone….
ok…I know, I know, I know…maybe you didn’t miss me that much but I missed being here! I love that song! Have you ever counted how many I know, I know, I know’s there are in that song?
If you enjoy that song like I do…you can give a listen here…
And…try to count those I know, I know, I know’s!
Well…back to blog post…
Summer is over, fall has arrived and…
It is Bourbon Appreciation Month here in Kentucky (and it’s almost over)! I don’t drink bourbon but I sure do love baking and cooking with it! One of my favorite recipes made with bourbon is a crazy buttermilk bourbon sauce to use on bread pudding or ice cream. It is soooo good…I always want to drink it! So…maybe I do like to ‘hit the sauce’! I will do a post, later on, of a mean orange, cranberry bread pudding with that wonderful sauce! Meanwhile, before the month is over, I thought…what a great time to get back on the blog block and share a recipe that my Aunt B and I enjoyed together…across the miles!
Aunt B (a Southwestern Southern Belle) loves baking and searching recipes like I do. She sent me a recipe that she found, similar to the ‘Derby Day Brownie Pie’ that I made a few years ago.
The recipe that Aunt B sent was from Paula Deen’s site and was in the form of a bar instead of a pie. It sounded like a ‘winner’ to me! Aunt B and I got our bake on…and shared our treats via photos.
It was so fun and made me feel like I was sitting down to enjoy a treat with my dear Auntie!
The bars are delicious!
Here are some of our photos…
Here is the link for Paula’s Derby Bars….
This recipe share sparked an idear…ok…idea…( I think I’m picking up a Southern accent) and I searched for recipe swaps online. There are several that come up but I couldn’t really tell if they are current. I also saw something about a recipe swap party on Pinterest…that has a tool….and tips on creating swaps. Do any of you (if I have any remaining followers) participate in any online recipe swaps or know anything about the swap party on Pinterest? Please share any helpful information that you may have.
Fond memories of summer…
The splendor of fall…
And joyful I know, I know, I know, I know’s!
May you be blessed simply….
And simply blessed!
Can anyone tell me…how many I know, I know, I know’s there are? 🙂

The warmth of the bourbon with that nutty pecan flavor – I really like that combination!
Yes…That is a wonderful description of a flavor combination that is meant to be! 🙂 I hope you’ll try the recipe! ~BLESSINGS!
It looks delicious. I like how you and your aunt made a recipe, and then shared the treats virtually.
Thank you Sheryl! It was such fun for both of us. We both enjoyed the sharing AND the delicious bars. 🙂
I’ve never tried bourbon but I’d like to try these yummy treats!
I think you would love baking with it! Thanks…so much for coming by! If you do ever try the bourbon with any of your lovely recipes…I’ll be in line to try them out too! Kentucky gals all make a bourbon pecan cake. I think I’ll be trying that too. Thanks again…~Blessings!
This could be my fav appreciation month! What a delish treat.
It really is delicious! Please share any of your favorite ‘bourbon appreciation’ recipes! ~Blessings!
