Why I Don’t Bake

September 8, 2010

Because I just ate three of these:

The good news?  Even with light butter, these pumpkin chocolate chip bars are freakin’ delicious.

The bad news?  I just had to unbutton my jeans.  Time for the stretchy pants, my friends.  Time for the stretchy pants.

    LOL! Rock those stretchy pants!

    And give the rest away!

    (That is what I have to do – I have the same “problem”)

    stretchy pants are a baker’s best friend πŸ™‚

    That looks delicious! It’s ok to wear stretchy pants sometimes

    I will twiddle my thumbs while I patiently wait for this recipe. I already wear stretchy pants 24/7 so I’m golden. Go maternity wear! LOL

    Hehe, you sound like Paula Deen with your talk of stretchy pants! πŸ˜‰ Like Tina mentioned, that’s a big plus about maternity clothes!! πŸ˜‰ Those bars look very worth any unbuttoning! πŸ˜‰

    Glad they still worked with light butter! I have had a few baking mishaps thanks to good ole light butter. I usually stick with the full fat stuff! πŸ™‚

    I know EXACTLY what you mean.. last october my roommate made pumpkin chocolate chip cookies; I had like 5 every night. I would shut myself in my room and force myself not to think about those cookies but of course I’d get up and get another! if she makes them again this year I am demanding that she only make half the amount

    oh no!! or (oh yes!!) depends how you look at it. ive seen so many versions of pumpkin and chocolate chip loaves,cakes,muffins etc. and now im a bit scared to make them into muffins since i know they’ll be hard not to munch on all day. haha i guess u need some “victims” to enjoy ur addictive baking with πŸ™‚

    Feel free to send the rest of the pan my way! Since you used light butter it doesn’t count, right?

    clearly these are going to be a big hit around the blog world. mention baked goods + pumpkin + chocolate and the hearts of women everywhere melt.

    I am literally laughing out loud! I LOVE to bake but I’m a single girl so I have to either take one piece and give the rest away or may 1/4 of a recipe and that is not always a success!!

    Mmmmmm. I love anything pumpkin. This looks delicious.

    Those look great! I just finished the book “Promise Not to Tell” last night – creepy, but good – it held me captive for a few days! πŸ™‚

      That’s so funny– I just finished one of hers yesterday too– Island of Lost Girls. I didn’t like it as much as her other two, but it was still a pretty good read!

    I basically LOVE any baked good with pumpkin. I need to get more cans of it asap!!
