From a cake to a cookie

Happy Holidays Readers!

It’s Christmas Eve, and if you are like me, you may have committed yourself to making treats for people for the fast approaching festive season and probably do not have time to get to the store and buy ingredients. No problem I’ve got you covered. You know that box of cake mix by either good ol’ Betty crocker or sir Duncan that is sitting in your pantry? Well guess what you can make cookies out of that! Amazing right!

To turn this box into fresh yummy cookies all you need to do is disregard those instructions on the back and use these.

  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup of oil

ANNND blend until the batter is thick and moldable usually about 3 mins on medium speed if you are using a hand blender. Bake at 375 for 6 to 9 min.

Here are red velvet cookies I made using the cake mix.

Good luck readers and again Merry Christmas

The replacement

Hello All,

Recently I had a small event that I catered and the dish I got the most feedback on was actually not on the original menu. I replaced a more complex dish with stuffed mushrooms, a last minuet decision made while out shopping because the store was out of stock of what I was originally looking for. Now stuffed mushrooms are delicious on their own but, I was honestly worried because as it was not as planned out as the other plates were. The amazing reviews about the mushrooms reminded me that cooking is an expression of love, and as long as people can taste the love I put in my food, I do not have to fear the outcome.

Happy Friday!
