Raspberry Bar

If y'all haven't noticed yet, I love baking.  I would love to just bake from the rest of my life, even though my thighs and butt would not like it very much.  Because I have be trying to eat healthier for the past 2 years, I don't get to do a bunch of baking for myself.  Thankfully, I have 32 residents that I cook for and they expect yummy desserts.

Now, when it comes to the residents that I cook for, they are in their 60s to 90 and LOVE their sweets.  Regardless, of how bad it may be for their blood sugar levels.  I do try to make more healthier desserts, however, they don't go over too well.  And let me just tell you, if I serve them fruit I might as well just start a riot with them.

So, with all that being said and know that I am in charge of making sure we are sticking as much as possible to their prescribed diets, I am always trying to find ways to incorporate more fruit.  Sometimes, I swear I am cooking for children....hiding healthy food in recipes that they will eat it without fussing about it.
