Something Healthy, Something NOT

I found both of these recipes last week and printed them out to make soon.  "Soon" turned out to be today.  As the last soup recipe I tried from Martha Stewart's website turned out wonderfully, I decided to give this broccoli soup recipe a shot.  It was pretty easy to put together, and turned out pretty darn good.  I did take the liberty of adding a bit of reduced-fat cream cheese and a handful of shredded parmesan cheese that was in the fridge to the pot which did help to thicken it slightly.  We all agreed that it could have been even a little bit thicker, but it was still tasty.

The second recipe is crazy delicious.  I have yet to make a recipe from Bake or Break that isn't crazy delicious, and these bars certainly continued the trend.  Chopped Peanut Butter Cups, Butterfingers, Honey Roasted Peanuts, Chocolate Chips, Nutter Butter cookies for a crust??  Yep - this one had to be made.  I actually kind of messed up the recipe a bit, and accidently put the "topping" directly on the crust and then put all the goodies on top of that, 
rather than putting the goodies directly onto the crust and then pouring the topping over that, but I think you could mash everything together in a bowl and microwave it and it would still turn out tasting good!
