We all know that the last week was not my friend (this week, by the way, is much, much better). And we all know how the old saying goes, “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.”

However…I say, “When life gives you lemons, go to the grocery store and exchange them for smore’s.”

No, seriously. Make smore’s.

Since I live in the arctic, I’ve had to be creative about how to make smore’s. They’re too good to save for the three months of the year when outdoor bonfires are an option. Solution?

A beautiful thing called a broiler.

Here’s the easiest bad day/good day/any day recipe in the book, people: break a graham cracker in half; put two squares of chocolate on one side; split two marshmallows in half and place the four halves on the other side. Like so:

Pop them under the broiler for just about a minute or so – just until the marshmallows are golden brown. Put the halves together and let them sit and cool until you can’t resist them any longer…and then dig in!

Step aside, lemonade. Smore’s are taking over the optimistic food camp.
