I am a bit late in posting this... I was somewhat traumatized by my experience with "the beast" (the pina colada cake in the post below that was really good but that I messed up big time), and so I need a short break from baking.
For Sweet Melissa this week, Pamela, from the cute blog Cookies with Boys, chose Butterscotch Cashew bars. These bars are really easy to make as they use butterscotch chips instead of making butterscotch from scratch. Both Dave and I, and the neighbor kids thought they were really good. They are quite rich though, so you may want to cut them into small bars.
Please see Pamela's blog to get the complete recipe: http://cookieswithboys.blogspot.com/2009/05/sweet-melissa.html

Today our Tuesdays with Dorie post is due and I have not even started my Coconut-roasted Pineapple Dacquoise yet. The thought of working with another meringue so soon after "the beast" is a bit intimidating. I will give it a try though!
