One of my first cookie bars I made as a child



I remember coming home from school and wanting a treat. Mom worked full time.


Back in the 1960s, mom always had a homemade from scratch cookie or bar in our wagon wheel cookie jar.


That was a huge inspiration to learn how to bake at an early age just watching how easy she made it look


At age 11 years old I got my first Better Homes and Gardens cookbook.

Easy Oatmeal Bars



I decided, my first venture in cooking would be these easy Raspberry Oatmeal Bar.


Little did I know way back then, they became a family favorite along with mine.


Dad always appreciated the fact that I wanted to learn how to bake from mom.


I loved trying new cookies, cakes, and foods.

Baking Became My New Hobby



These cookie bars are so easy


I would make them at least once a month.


Packing them in my own lunch was a given, but dear dad wanted them as well.


I would give him some to take to work too as he walked a long distance to his job, he worked for the phone company back then.

Dad and I



Funny how much in common growing with foods mom or dad taught us to enjoy.


Dad and I just loved raspberries.


We would often share a raspberry pie together, I loved when he brought one home from the bakery back then.


I learned how to make a fresh raspberry pie, in later years that he loved.


Dad grew fresh raspberries and boysenberries in the garden and made the best homemade pies with them!

Tough Little Bars




These little bars travel well in the mail too. I would put these on my Christmas cookie list for my family to enjoy in Upstate New York, where we were from.


As the years past by, these are now a tradition for my kids, their kids and it's an old classic that will never die.


It was pretty devastating to lose Dad in the early 1990s, I continue to make these Raspberry Oatmeal bars in his memory.
