Nanaimo Bars are one of those desserts easy to have a love hate relationships with. They are so richly wonderful you love to eat them and after you have eaten too many you hate them. Make them for any occasion.
I don’t make Nanaimo Bars very often. For family members celebrating a birthday I try to make their favorite dessert. Nanaimo Bars are easily one of Patrick’s favorite. He was our October birthday. My husband and I took trip to Nanaimo, British Columbia, Canada a few years ago where I found this recipe. I am reminded of that trip each time they are made.

Our family loves chocolate cake. Agreeing with Mr. Biddle, Disney’s “Happiest Millionaire”, “Chocolate cake is the perfect food”. This Sour Cream Chocolate Cake truly is a family favorite. There is never very much left after a family party. In fact, the kids will often come back for a second or third piece and the pan is empty. Another great thing about this cake is you just stir it together in a sauce pan.
Every Summer for many years now, our family has had a camp out at Ponderosa State Park. We hike, ride bikes and swim in Payette Lake. This year on one of the hikes Margaret’s family found and picked wild Huckleberries. Our planned Blackberry Cobbler was reinvented. Here is our new recipe for
“Dutch Oven Blackberry Huckleberry Cobbler”.
