OK. Let's talk about one of my favorite topics... food.
More specifically, food that I've made. Here is some things I have created recently.
First up, I made a no-bake chocolate chip cheese cake which I found here.
Dear egg rolls, how do I love thee? I have never made these before so it was the first time for these little guys. I used chicken, purple cabbage, mushrooms & onions in my mixture. See how they gradually got a little darker & darker. Yeah, that's what happens with two kids running around. You'll get a little distracted. These little guys were good and all gone by the next day.

Here is a cake I made for my kids in honor of them going back to school. Ethan's going to 3rd & Emily is going to Kindergarten. Yes, I will be a complete mess and in a puddle of tears tomorrow. More on that later.
I got the idea for this cake here. I was in a hurry to get this cake done so the Kit Kats aren't evenly placed on the cake. They're kind slapped on in a hurry.

|Grab a cute little helper...|
|Take some milk, add food coloring...|
|Some bread, or in our case a hamburger bun & a NEW paintbrush & come creativity.|
|You get an edible work of art & a happy girl.|
I toasted this for her, and she couldn't have been any happier.
Ever had cake mix cookies?

Now, you can bake them as directed and frost them like the directions suggest (directions on the side of the Funfetti box). That's what I usually do.
You can now bake as directed. I didn't have enough sprinkles for all the dough. So, I added my left over mini chocolate chips from my chocolate chip cheesecake to the rest of the dough.
Lastley, I made this...
I know it doesn't look all that great and kids questioned me for like, 5 minutes asking me "What's that?" "What's in this?" "Is that a mushroom in there?"
But after they tried it, they liked it. I told them it's good to try new things. Nobody wants chicken nuggets & macaroni & cheese for every meal. Well, nobody over 10 anyways.
Until next time... happy eating!!!!
