Dutch heritage recipes are timeless

Many recipes are ageless. You can improve on some things, but others are just best done the way they've been done for centuries.

In her blog, "Michigan Cottage Cook," Julie Budde Heiner shares hundreds of years of collected recipes from her Dutch heritage, plus her thoughts and pictures of Lake Michigan and the shoreline community where she lives.

Her latest blog is a recipe for yummy, and she says healthy, rhubarb apple cherry oat bars.

"My friend, Cathy, went on an Ayurvedic fast a month ago," Julie writes. "Ayurveda is the traditional health care method in India. The fast was very intense. The last week of the fast, Cathy ate only rice and mung beans. The day the fast was completed, everyone on the group doing the fast met for a meal. The person who was guiding them through the fast brought these bars for their dessert."
