Chocolate Chip Bars made with a Cake Mix

I have to say, baking is my favorite part of cooking.  Whether it's from scratch or semi-homemade, I'm loving it. That is why you will find so many desserts on my blog. Don't get me wrong, I do love to cook meals.....just not as much..  Smiles are always plentiful when my boys smell something baking in the oven. These Chocolate Chip Bars are no exception.  They are so easy to make...which I definitely love, with the help of a boxed cake mix.

Roasted Okra

I haven't always loved okra.  I would eat it once in a blue moon roasted in the oven, the way my Precious Mama and Grandma cooked it.   However, for most of my life, I despised it.  The sight of slimy green pods just didn't make my heart sing.  Fast forward .. I now put it in stews, soups, peas and beans, loving the flavor and the way it thickens whatever it is cooked in.  I also love Roasted Okra!

Hash Brown and Sweet Pepper Kugel

Oh...My!  This Hash Brown and Sweet Pepper Kugel turned out so light yet full of flavor!  We all loved it and a couple of us ate this, skipping the meat, with green beans to complete our meal.  It is so easy to make, I do not know why I have never made this before!  It is a keeper and will definitely be added to our menu.

Double Chocolate Mayo Muffins

Double Chocolate Mayo Muffins are the best chocolate muffins, ever!  At least according to my boys they are.  Moist and chocolaty, they almost melt in your mouth!  My oldest calls them Brownie Cupcakes.  A huge thank you to our facebook friend, Jennifer W..  for sharing her mother's Banana Muffins recipe.  (I adapted these Double Chocolate Mayo Muffins from the recipe.)  Her mother added the delicious recipe, and others, to a cookbook for one of her birthdays.  How sweet!  Her mother also left room in the cookbook for her to add her own favorite recipes. I love it!  My blog is my cookbook to my boys.  Sharing their favorites and some memories along the way.

Stuffed Mini Corn Muffins

Thinking of a way to get rid of, I mean use up,  hot dogs leftover from the birthday party for the the twins, I decided to make corn muffins.  Then, thoughts turned to the chili I had leftover to top the hot dogs.

Easy DIY Cupcake Toppers

My twins are turning 7!!!  Planning their party just gets more detailed with each turn.  I needed to find cupcake toppers for a class party and couldn't find Angry Birds anywhere.  At least, yesterday afternoon when I searched a few stores.  I decided I would make my own.

Candy Popcorn

I didn't find out until a day ago, that my 5th grader is having a Valentine's Day party!   They have a field trip on Friday, Valentine's Day, that and I just assumed 5th graders didn't celebrate since my son thinks it is babyish to exchange cards.  Awww, where does the time go?  And, just when did my son think he is too old to celebrate?!  As a last minute contribution, I am making Candy Popcorn.  Made with flavored gelatin, it is a breeze to put together, taking literally minutes to make.  It is so colorful and full of flavor, certain to be welcomed by his friends when they open their treat bags.

Blueberry Muffins

I found this simple Blueberry Muffin recipe in an old recipe book my precious grandma gave me in 1993. Wow!  When read aloud, that sounds like an eternity ago!  I suddenly feel antiquated....  These muffins are easy to whip up,  slightly sweet, light, and full of blueberries.  Perfect for breakfast on the go, after school snack or weekend brunch.
