Recipe News: Recipes that feature leftovers and memories

"Want to stretch your skills? Two new books will bring you in different, yet interesting directions.

Recipe News: Make homemade energy bars with this easy recipe

"Go into any grocery store or Walmart in the country and be amazed at the variety of PowerBars, Clif Bars, 5 Hour Energy drinks, etc. They're all very handy, but making homemade energy bars with this recipe will save money.
Not only that, but with a bit of creative spirit and imagination, anyone can come up with their favorite flavor. This recipe covers the basics, but keep in mind that there's no end to ingredients that can be added for both texture and taste.
These delicious treats are great for consuming during long runs or bike workouts, as well as that all-important post-workout recovery snack.
This recipe only takes about a half hour to prepare so it can be done the evening beforehand. To enjoy it after working out, transport it in a cooler during the summer along with the sports drinks. Of course, this will not be necessary in the short winter months in the Houston area."
