Friends, you have got to see the Snickers Special K Bars made by +Amanda Rettke - they look and sound amazing. After I make them, I know I'd have to give them away because I'd likely eat the whole pan!

I win the internet. ; I was going to tell you that, post a few pictures and a recipe and be done with it.  Cause I mean, hello.  I won.  Game over. But then I thought you might want to know why I won. But that would mean telling you all about these, and they wouldn't be my little secret

Introduction
My name is Joanie Zisk.  I'm a Food and Travel Writer, Blogger, Wife and Mother of five.

I began my culinary writing journey when my two oldest children went away to college and I started to share with them easy, inexpensive and healthy recipes to make while they were away at school.  I started posting these recipes on my blog and it has since expanded to become a weekly meal plan for college students.  I post a week of recipes every week specifically for students in college or for people cooking for one or two.

The blog has expanded to include family-friendly recipes, favorite wine recommendations and travel stories.

I have been the proud parent of several children who have participated in the Disney College Program for several years and I write a section for kids and their parents about what they might expect when taking part in the Disney College Program.

You can find me at my blog, "ZagLeft"
