A sea of blondes!

Not the ones you're thinking of I'm sure. These babies are good, and I mean REAL good. Our roomie loves white chocolate macadamia nut cookies. I wanted to make some for him, but boring ol' cookies? Who me?! NO SIR! I'm a pretty cool lady, ya know! So, while checking my email the other day, wonderful little Miss Betty Crocker sent me a letter chock full of recipes, which included one on white chocolate macadamia nut bars. So, right then and there I saw it as a sign from my savor Chewbacca (Don't judge me) and I was convinced that I needed to bake these for my friend! And I did!! KC had one and I got the thumbs up, which in my book means I did good.

Come sail this sea, hot stuff!

Baking these today really made me feel better. I don't know about you guys, but when I'm stressed out, just feel like ripping my hair out, running down the road topless and crying, I quickly get in the kitchen and make myself busy. I don't want to get arressted or anything.. It just pulls me back to the place I belong, the place where I know every things all okay - unless I scorch the chocolate, or burn the rolls - It reminds me that life isn't bad, that I've got a wonderful man who loves me for me, friends who ARE family, and family that care.

I loved the way the butter and brown sugar melted together to form the sweetest thing.
