    Oh butter tarts and Nanaimo bars yum yum cam I come for dinner soon! Do you have any Saskatoons for a pie or rhubarb for a crisp?

    Well I was curious and checked out Nanaimo bars. Yumm they look good. I copied several recipes from Foodgawker. Thanks for sharing. BTW I love British Columbian and hope to return again someday.
