No-bake Oatmeal Coconut Bars

This probably won't come as a groundbreaking statement to most of you, but it is hot. With temperatures passing 90 F almost every day, and without the advanced modern technology of... air conditioning, I'm not jumping to turn the oven on. But, my sweet tooth hasn't waned with the rising temperatures, so no-bake recipes have major appeal. And this bar cookie with oatmeal, coconut and chocolate fits the bill perfectly.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Layered Brownies

If you've been around - oh, a week or two - on this blog, you'll know that I have great affection for the combination of peanut butter and chocolate. And I'm certainly not alone in this love. No, there are many out there who extoll the gift that is this classic pairing (I'm told there is even a candy bar) - and to them I give this gift: Chocolate Peanut Butter Layered Brownies.

Nectarine Crumb Tart

What's the difference between a tart and a pie? I could go on for hours, but right now the difference is that I own a tart pan, and I don't currently own a pie dish.
