My sixteen year old daughter came home from school yesterday all upset and crying from her stessful day at school (peer pressure). After she talked everything out with me, she tore into the kitchen (bowls banging, pots slamming) and created these awesome applesauce bars. I hate to say it, but I hope she gets stressed-out more often. These are AMAZING...
