When I posted THIS POST, asking for help, and then sent an email to my bloggy friends, I never expected so many people to respond.I am blessed with wonderful friends, and I had a ton of ladies, who were more than willing to keep you all entertained while I get better, or get some sleep, or paint my garage, whatever, he he. The point is, I am SUPER LUCKY, super THANKFUL, and SUPER excited to introduce you all to Randi from
Randi is incredibly beautiful, I must say, not just on the outside, but on the inside too. Reading her posts, you start to get a sense of her, and her love for life, her love for people, and especially her little man, which is the topic of choice, on many of her posts. She also has incredible photography skills, that you will surely notice by looking around at her blog. I actually found her, by following after seeing some of her beautiful photographs. She is just a sweetheart, and I can't believe she graciously offered to help me out with my blog.
Now check out this INCREDIBLY YUMMY recipe.
Take it away girl, make us drool!!!
And did you know you can store the remains in your sugar? Yes people, vanilla sugar! (Maybe I'm really behind in learning about this brilliant idea)
1 1/2 cups crushed Lorna Doone Cookies (approx. one box)
3 Tablespoons packed brown sugar
6 Tablespoons melted butter
Mix cookies and sugar together.
Add butter and stir until combined.
Press mixture into a greased 13 X 9 pan.
3 (8 oz.) packages cream cheese, softened
1 cup sugar
2 Tablespoons flour
8 oz. sour cream
1 Tablespoon heavy whipping cream
1 1/2 Tablespoon vanilla
2 Vanilla beans (I only used one bean and realized it needed one more - you'll notice the lack of speckles in mine... oops)
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
On medium low, add eggs one at a time, mixing well with each addition.
Add sour cream, whipping cream and vanilla and mix until just combined.
Last, split open vanilla beans and scoop put seeds and insides into batter.
Pour on prepared crust and bake for about 45 minutes.
Remove and cool.
4 oz. heavy whipping cream (1/2 cup)
1/4 cup confectioners’ sugar

Cut into bars, serve, and ENJOY!

Makes about 30 bars.
