  1. What a gem of a recipe. I made these for my family for a snack on the weekend. DH ate and ate and ate them. They were sweet and creamy and really did taste a lot like a carrot cake. Thank you for sharing with us.
  2. I just served these little treats at a Ladies' Open House- they were a hit with everyone!!! Thank you, Queen, for making me look like an awesome cook. (I used toasted chopped walnuts and thick boutique-style raisin bread.)
  3. These were a big hit at my Girls Martini party, I cut them out with little heart cutouts
  4. I made these for a breakfast potluck at work. Everyone loved them, and were intrigued by the unique combination of ingredients. Easy to make the night before, and have ready for a morning event. I agree with some of the other reviewers that the filling make enough for 2 loaves of bread.
  5. I made these for my mom's 80th birthday party, and all the ladies loved this. These tea sandwiches went before the food that was catered went. Definetely a hit. Thanks for sharing. I added crushed pineapple, but made sure it was drained very well.


I've been hanging around Zaar for a while, now and have found some really awesome recipes, but more importantly, some really awesome people. I'd like to thank all of you who have taken the time to try my recipes. Your reviews are a bright spot in my day. I believe that life is a collection of lessons that we must do our best to learn. One that I'm working on now is not judging those who judge others. I've come across this quote and thought I'd put it here: "The world is long on judgment and short on understanding. Judging is easy and self-satisfying. Understanding requires perspective, experience, and empathy."-Unknown
