The second dessert I made for my husband’s barbecue on Monday was Triple-Decker Bars. First layer is brownie, then Oreos followed by the Blondie top layer. These things are sweet, rich and fabulous.
Recipe from Food Network Magazine, September 2015

2. Make the brownie batter and blondie batter.
3. Spread the brownie batter in the prepared pan; press Oreos into the top.
4. Spread the blondie batter over the cookies.
5. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 50-55 minutes.
For dinner on Tuesday, Alicia and I went to Ototo Sushi.
I went over to Stacy’s house to workout with her and her personal trainer who kicked my butt! I got my hair done afterwards and had Jersey Mike’s for lunch.
That evening we went over to Asaf and Yamia’s house for a barbecue. Asaf grilled up some awesome veggies, hamburgers and hot dogs!
We are all going to Croatia next month and wanted to get together beforehand. We even got special hats for the upcoming trip.
I went to an appointment in the morning, then headed over to UTC mall to meet Alicia and Kate for lunch at Sweetfin.
I did some shopping then headed up to get dressed for dinner. I went right back to UTC to meet friends at Great Maple. We shared a few appetizers.
Artisan Toast Duo (toy box tomatoes, burrata, pesto, balsamic drizzle & smashed avocado, roasted corn, honey drizzle):
Charred Cauliflower Hummus (chickpeas & roasted cauliflower with flatbread and market vegetables):
Crispy Calamari (caper remoulade, chili flakes, mixed olives):
For my entree, I ordered the Steak Frites:
Everything was pretty good but the dessert stole the show for me.
Maple Bacon Doughnuts:
The service wasn’t very good and there wasn’t a ton of people there. It was also super loud which was weird with the restaurant being less than half full. Overall, I would go back and try it again but it isn’t top of my list.
After dinner we went to Raised by Wolves for drinks.
It had great ambience and was definitely a fun place!
I had a repair person come by this morning and I’m headed out soon to go bathing suit shopping for our upcoming trip. Wish me luck!
