    French Chew

    Nope, I have no idea where the name French Chew comes from either! This was a new traybake to me. I don’t remember ever eating French Chew. I don’t remember ever baking French Chew. But the recipe looked interesting, so…

    No-Bake Date Rolls

    It looks a little like Fifteens, before you cut into it anyway. It’s a similar log shape and is coated with coconut, and these No-Bake Date Rolls are just as easy to make, with an equally simple list of ingredients.…
