Mountain Dew Cupcakes


For my first week’s recipe I made Mountain Dew Cupcakes. My husband loved them so much he had me make them for our college cookout – and they loved them too! The recipe was not too difficult to do.

You can find the recipe here.

My husband suggested trying a Code Red version or a Blue version. What do you think?

Mini-Monkey Breads


This week it is my responsibility to bring breakfast for our Sunday School class. I decided that I was going to make this crockpot pumpkin bread because I had all the ingredients at home. Well, long story short, I couldn’t do it because my loaf pan wouldn’t fit in my crockpot. So I searched my pins on Pinterest and found this recipe I looked and I had all the ingredients at home (Score!). Thank you, Blue Eyed Bakers for the recipe!

This recipe is very simple, all you need is:

3 cans of buttermilk biscuit dough
1 cup sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon
3/4 cups (1 1/12 sticks) butter
1/2 cup brown sugar

Preheat the oven to 350 F. Place muffin liners in each cup and set aside.

Remove all of the biscuit dough from the containers and divide each biscuit into sixths and shape into rough balls.

In a large resealable plastic bag or a large bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon. Stir or shake to combine.

Place all of the dough balls in the plastic bag and shake until all balls are evenly coated with the cinnamon sugar mixture. If you’re using a bowl, just move the biscuit dough around with your hands until evenly coated. Set aside.

In a small saucepan, melt together butter and brown sugar over medium heat, stirring frequently, until sugar is just dissolved, about 5 minutes. Drop a spoonful of butter/sugar mixture into each muffin cup. Take 5 coated dough balls (assuming you divided the biscuits into sixths) and place them in a muffin cup on top of the butter/sugar (you need to kind of squish them in there!). Repeat, filling each muffin cup with remaining dough. Spoon an additional spoonful or butter/sugar over each muffin and bake for 15 minutes, until puffed and bubbly.

Muffins can also be made ahead and reheated in a 300 F oven, covered with foil, for 10 minutes.

This was a super easy recipe and I cannot wait to try it tomorrow morning! They smell amazing and now my kitchen smells like cinnamon. 🙂

Try it for yourself. Would you change anything to it?

Cinnamon Roll Casserole


My husband and I told our Sunday School that we’d be bringing breakfast this morning. We work with the College and Career Class at our church. I was super excited as I have had many Pinterest recipes I have been dying to try. The only problem was I couldn’t decide. I finally decided on the Cinnamon Roll Casserole. It was very easy to make and I received a lot of compliments on it! It tasted like a french toast with lots of cinnamon in it. Everyone in the class had some and we had only a little left. This recipe is definitely a winner! Thank you to  this blogger for their wonderful recipe!

Cookie Dough Balls


This is another fantastic recipe that I found on Pinterest. Once again, it hit my weakness with the cookie dough. I love cookie dough! An added bonus to this recipe is that it only has 5 ingredients! My kind of recipe! This one, like the last, does not have eggs in it so it is ok to eat it raw. On top of the cookie dough balls I added chocolate in the shape of a chocolate chip. A very good recipe!

Try it for yourself! Is this recipe better than the other one? What do you think?

Red Velvet Chocolate Chip Cookies


Another Pinterest success! I am very happy with everything that I’ve made from Pinterest. My husband loves red velvet stuff so I found this recipe and decided to try it for him for our anniversary tomorrow! This recipe was fairly easy to do. Just like making chocolate chip cookies but with a few added ingredients. I was a little worried because my assistant chef was unable to taste the dough before I baked it, but it was a big success!! I love them!

Edible Cookie Dough


After my first recipe I tried out on Pinterest worked well, I decided to try another. This recipe was for an edible cookie dough. Kevin and I were hungry so we decided to try this recipe since I had all the ingredients already! A good thing about this recipe is there is no eggs so you don’t have to worry about eating raw eggs. It was extremely easy to make. I threw the ingredients in the bowl, mixed it up, and it was ready to eat.The recipe said to refrigerate it a little, but we couldn’t wait and ate about half of it before it made it to the fridge. 🙂 Definitely another winning pin!

No Bake Joe-Joe Bars


Pinterest is a very fascinating website. I have “pinned” many different recipes and projects, but this was the first one I tried. It had a very happy ending. 🙂 I changed the recipe a little to fit my tastes.

What you need:

  • one package of Joe-Joes (the original recipe was for Oreos, but Joe-Joes taste much much better!)
  • 4 tablespoons of butter
  • 5 cups of Large marshmellows (I just used a bag of large marshmallows)

I used my Pampered Chef Chopper because my food processor is still packed up from the move. 🙂

First, you butter a 8×8 baking dish then cover it with parchment paper. Then butter the paper to avoid the bars from sticking.

Second, you chop up the Joe-Joes (Oreos) until they are very fine.

Next, put the marshmallows and butter in a microwavable bowl and heat for 2 minutes in the microwave or until the marshmallows are large and puffy.

Then, mix the Joe-Joe crumbs into the marshmallow mixture and mix well.

Next you will pour the mixture into your baking dish.

Then you cover the mixture with parchment paper and flatten to make even bars.

Finally, let it sit for 10 minutes until it hardens some and then enjoy. (Note: My husband and I enjoyed them best when they had sat overnight!)

These are easy to make and taste like Rice Crispy Treats but much better! Enjoy!
