Foodie Factoid: M&Ms were invented in 1914 during the Spanish Civil War when creator Forrest Mars wanted to create a candy that wouldn’t melt in the hot sun as easily as straight up chocolate. You can read more about M&Ms here.
Who’s ready for vacation? This college student is! However, before that, I really need to get some work done. I’m going to keep this post short and sweet (no pun intended) since I really need to get said work finished up. These blondies were the perfect recipe for this week because they were just that easy. One bowl, one pan and you’ve got an amazing study snack (or dessert for people who don’t consider ramen to be an appropriate meal). It takes just about 5 minutes to mix the ingredients together and then 20 in the oven before you can remove them and attack with a fork. I am not guilty of said actions, definitely did not do that…Anyway I hope you get the chance to try these out. They’re SO easy and worth every delicious bite! I should be back with lengthier and more interesting posts come next week :D.
