 make a recipe & it looks nothing like the picture!  i know the pictures are plated to look extra appealing but i don't get why some never turn out looking anything like the picture in the recipe.  like the chewy no bake granola bars i just made.  they look nothing like the picture below & the only change i made to the recipe was adding dried cranberries.  they came out yummy but mine are allot darker in color & i know it's not from the cranberries as they were mixed in at the end.

granola bars final 3

wish i could post a picture of mine so you could see the difference.

I just made some of these yesterday and mine are a little crumbly so they really don't look like the recipe pic, lol.

Sweet, I bet he liked helping.  I pressed mine too but I guess a lot of these recipes are a bit crumbly.
