Welcome To Mommy Makings

This blog is for all those moms out there who love projects, but don't have a lot of time. I love to paint and sew and cook, and as a mother of two tiny ones, I never have time, so I am constantly searching for things to make myself a little trendier and ways to get dinner on the table fast. I don't claim to be any sort of craftista, but here you will find everything from recipes to jewelry, all do it yourself and always EASY!!! P.S if anyone has projects you'd like me to try please leave me a comment about it.

Caramel Bars


2 Cups quick cooked oats
2 1/4 cup flour
1 1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 cup cold butter
2 cups chocolate chips
12 oz jar caramel ice-cream topping
Combine 2 cups flour, oats, brown sugar, baking soda and salt. But in butter. Mix into a crumble, using a fork or pastry cutter. Set half aside. Press remaining half into a greased 9X13 baking pan. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes. Remove and sprinkle with chocolate chips. Whisk caramel and remaining 1/4 cup flour together until smooth. Drizzle over chips. Sprinkle on the remaining crumble mixture and bake 18-20 minutes. Cool for 2 hours before serving.
