How many of you are glad taxes are over? I will admit, I was one of those people who waited until the eleventh hour to do her taxes and was frantic to get everything done when I realized I was going to pay in this year. To say the least, this girl is cuddling with her favorite dog and trying to avoid her bank account since it is a lot smaller than it was this morning. At least I know I won’t have to deal with it until next year. While my friends are planning on how they are going to spend their tax refund, I am going to enjoy spending some quality time in my kitchen making delicious treats. Sweet things help get rid of tax blues, right?
One of the yummy creations I made today to help deal with taxes were these raspberry bars. As I told you guys previously, I am a big fan of berries. While I am hoping to use fresh raspberries next time, I was just getting rid of items in the fridge to preparation for purchasing more fruits and veggies. To say the least, these yummy bars truly hit the spot and made staying in tonight a bit more amazing. I will also admit that I was still filing my taxes while they were baking, so the house smelled great as I was dealing with one of the biggest stressors of the year!
