Well, the weather here in Central IN has been unbearably hot the past week and they are calling for temps near 100 degrees the end of this week – which makes the heat index like 115 or something crazy!!!
So, why turn the oven on when you don’t have to – right?!?!
In honor of our “No Baking” Linky, Miss Bug has been working SO hard on her No Bake cookies for Mini 4-H and I thought I would share! These happen to be one of my favorite kinds of cookies so it hasn’t bothered me one bit that she has practiced something like 6 times this summer which means something like 15 dozen No Bakes!!
They are simple to make, taste great, especially fun for kids to make and the best part – you don’t have to heat up the kitchen with the oven!
