Valentine Cookies

I hope my children never grow old of me baking for them. I still find great joy in making them holiday sugar cookies. They are now 24 & 27. The sprinkle sugar cookie recipe I discovered last year when I was browsing Boy, I love that site!

The frosted decorated sugar cookies I came across many, many years a betty crocker cookbook that I had checked out from the library. I think DD, my oldest, was 6 or 7 at the time. I have been making them ever since. I LOVE checking out cookbooks from the library.

The little chocolate cookies are super easy and delicious. I make them when I have left over frosting. They are my version of the oreo caksters. YUMMY!

Here is the recipe:

1 Chocolate Cake Mix (I like fudge. If you have an Aldi's there chocolate box cake mix makes the best.)
2 eggs
1/4 -1/3 cup vegetables oil (I have made them with 1/4 cup oil when I ran low on oil.)
2 T water
handful of chocolate chips (optional)
Bake at 350 for 5 to 8 minutes until bottom is golden. Recipe yields 24 cookies or 12 large cakesters. Easy and economical. Got to love that!
Happy Weekend everyone!

Valentine's Blog Hop

Welcome to the Valentine's blog hop. I am having so many technical difficulties with posting. I could not get my pictures to post. So, I am going to describe my project for now and hopefully I can get the pictures uploaded later.

My Valentine project consisted of making little sour cream containers and filling them with a yummy goody. The containers were made with valentine paper. Each container had a tag stamped with a little puppy and a heart sentiment saying "puppy love". I filled the containers with puppy chow.

If you have never made sour cream containers you need to give them a try. They are so quick and easy. I found the directions here

I ended up making the containers a bit larger so I could give a little more puppy chow. Just in case you don't have the puppy chow recipe here it is

On to your next your next stop is If you get lost try to make your way back to Amanda's blog.

Thanks for stopping by. Happy Crafting

Blueberry Muffins - Take 2

Well, I tried another blueberry muffin recipe this weekend. They were pretty good. I did find the muffins to be on the dense side. Here is the recipe if you want to give it a try.
