Sweet satisfaction . . .

Betty is the devil.

Somebody (me) made two desserts tonight. I found these great recipes on the Internet today on the Betty Crocker website. I had to make them. Both. At the same time. They come from two different food groups. The food group with chocolate and the one without.

Who doesn't love Betty?

Maybe I don't right now.

Betty has lots of great recipes on her site. Loaded with chocolate. I can't say no to chocolate....ever...it's a sickness. And I am sick....I fell under the Betty spell and ate my fill of "Warm Toasted Marshmallow S'mores Bars"...Man oh man...were they ever good. I had to keep eating them to make sure they were as good as I thought. They were.

Then I made "Oatmeal-Cranberry-Sour Cream Bars". There weren't enough calories in them so I added butterscotch chips to beef them up. I won't know how they taste until tomorrow. I had to show some restraint, or at least follow the directions to let them sit in the refrigerator for 2 hours. I'll leave them for the morning. I need something to look forward to...some reason to get up out of bed tomorrow...a reason to live...and those bars are my answer and reason I am looking forward to getting up at the crack of dawn.

Sweet dreams until tomorrow.

I too have problems with my will power and food. That is to say, I have aboslutely NO will power with food.

Afterwards, I have post binge remorse and tell myself I will never eat again, that I will subsist on air and dew drops.

It never works out...

She's been a pusher since the 50's.

I am also in the Betty fan club. I bought a Betty cookbook for .50 at a garage sale in 1982. The cookbook is from the '60's. I still use that cookbook. So does my husband whose mom had that very same cookbook when he was a kid. Betty rocks.

Oh, with the old cookbook, just make sure to substitute something healthier anytime you see the "lard." Just doing my part.
