Date and Oatmeal Bars

Date and Oatmeal Bars 

These bars are very popular in our Bed and Breakfast in Co. Cavan, the kids love them in their lunch boxes or guests enjoy them in the afternoon with a cup of coffee, much better and healthier than the shop bought variety . Very easy to make, keep excellent in an air tight container or can be frozen and used at a later date.

New Rhubarb-2011

Rhubarb-Lake Avenue House B&B

Picked our first Rhubarb for the year yesterday, made a Rhubarb Crumble using the Recipe I posted here last year, just lovely. This is a new bed of Rhubarb I started about 2 years ago, great to see it doing so well. I found a Rhubarb Muffin Recipe that I have been dying to try out, hope to make it next week. If successful it would be a new item to add to our Bed and Breakfast menu.

Another plus is that they freeze very well
