             Thanks Karen, it's good to see you. Yes, I ate one of these bars this morning along with one-half cup of Fage 0% plain greek yogurt, and enjoyed my breakfast a great deal.

             Thanks Karen, this is a big favorite of mine also. Next week, I'm planning to do a cooking video of a little oatmeal, banana, nut treat cooked in the microwave. <3

Did you ever get a chance to make the oatmeal banana nut treat in the microwave? Made these bars this morning and noticed your intention.

             Hi Karen, Yes, I am so VERY fond of my Oatmeal Banana Nut Muffins that I make in the microwave. The microwave texture is different than the oven texture, but the taste of each one of them is very pleasing to me. You can find these under RECIPES, MiniMeals. This past week my son and I have made quite a lot of improvements here at DietHobby, and one of these is that the NEWEST recipe, or other video, is now at the TOP of the list instead of the bottom. Yesterday we put in the slide show at the top of the Home page that highlights all 4 of my ongoing video series, and I'm really pleased with the way it looks. Click around on the titles and pictures on the website and look at how it is all getting connected together. I LOVE the ability to put little thumbnails next to the video title, although the process is rather time-consuming right now, just because I'm in the process of updating all of the previous videos I've posted inside my Blog articles to keep them consistent with the new system, to make it easier for new people when they access them from the ARCHIVES section. I still have the problem that posting videos to my new Words of Wisdom directory page requires a new blog each,...which triggers an e-mail every time I post one (just the way it did when I posted the Ask Grandma videos)... but there doesn't appear to be a way around that, and anyone who hates getting several e-mails when I do this can always unsubscribe, and then...if they want to... subscribe again later. I'm also loving not having any advertisements here on DietHobby right now, although in a few months I'll probably have to put an ad in a banner along the bottom of the page in order to appease the search engines. ..who appear to all strongly favor website that contain advertisements. Let me know if there is anything new =here that you particularly like. =D
