Coming Soon: 50 Shades of Awkward...

Happy June, awkward readers!!!!!  I just wanted to do up a quick post to tell you that I'm currently devouring my way through the "50 Shades of Grey"'s for research ONLY!!!  (Insert awkward lying face)  Ok,'ve got me.  I'm reading under the covers with a flashlight while my husband sleeps at night...I'm like a fat kid hoarding Girl Guide cookies...hiding them in her fanny pack hoping no one pats her down and squishes her chocolate secrets.  I called in sick because I finished the first book and was heartbroken...In the near future, I will have a proper post for you on what life would be like if the Awkward Baker wooed (yep,  I said wooed) Christian Grey.  In the meantime, here is "Ellen's" awkward tryout for the reading of the "50 Shades of Grey" audio book. 

I will also leave you with an age old "go to" recipe that makes a fantastic companion to "50 Shades".  It takes 10 minutes to whip up and another 20 to sit. 

Mars Bar Squares (Or as I have been calling them:  Delicious Alternatives to Christian Grey)

-4 regular sized Mars bars (get WILL eat one before you begin and it's much easier to have an extra on reserve rather than running back out to the store)

-1/2 cup of butter

-2 cups of rice krispies.

-2 cups of chocolate chips

-Do it up!!!

-Melt on low heat:  Mars Bars and butter.  When they are almost smooth (the nougat won`t melt very well) add the krispies and one cup of chocolate chips.

-mix it up and squish into an 8 by 8 inch greased pan.  Melt the remaining chocolate chips and pour them on top.  Refrigerate until hard on top. 

So, grab yourself a very generous glass of wine, a few Mars Bar squares and hunker down with Christian for the night.   Stay tuned for my upcoming post on 50 Shades!!!!!
