Jen's Favorite Cookies!

Pin It
My guest today is Jen!!  She is KILLING me with all of her recipes considering I have a sweet tooth the size of TEXAS!!!! I WILL be making these.....maybe for MC's snacks for class!!!

Here she is....

A recipe for a whoopie pie made with orange soda and vanilla cream. Source: Bakaholic Mama's version had only three ingredients. My version has just six. Yield: about 20 whoopie pies I feel honored that Randee asked me to guest post today. I guess I should start with a brief introduction. Hi, I'm Jen. I live a typical suburban life, with a husband, three kids, and a Jeep Grand Cherokee. Most of the compliments I've received in my life center around my very thick and long dark hair, my mad piano playing skills, and my fantastic desserts. Only one of these things has turned into a full-time blogging obsession for me. Guess which one? Here's a hint: my blog is called Jen's Favorite Cookies. The great thing about making different cookies every week is that you never know what the process will bring. Sometimes the cookies are fussy and complicated, using a lot of ingredients and a lot of time and dirtying a lot of dishes. Sometimes they are so simple you almost forget you even made them. Today's cookie falls into that second category. It's basically so easy, you could do it in your sleep. A trained monkey could make these cookies. Heck, and un-trained monkey could make them! You get the picture. Here's how you do it: STEP ONE: Mix together one vanilla or white cake mix and 1 cup of orange soda. If you're really into that orange flavor (like I am), you can also add 1 tsp. orange extract. Or not, your choice. STEP TWO: Bake. Oh, yeah... you're done with with the mixing already! Drop the soft dough in spoonfuls onto your baking sheet, trying to keep them all about the same size. They don't spread much, so you can put quite a few on your pan. Bake them at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes. STEP THREE: Frost. Bakaholic Mama used Cool Whip for her frosting, which is super duper easy. I'm kind of a cream snob, though, so I used whipped cream. I poured about a half pint of cream into a bowl and whipped it up for a few minutes. I added some clear vanilla and a couple tablespoons of sugar. Feel free to use a generous amount of this "frosting." There's plenty. You just frost the bottom side, and then sandwich them together. Easy-Peasy, Lemon-Squeezy. Orange Whoopie Pie Here's what you can expect from these cookies. Because they don't have eggs or oil, but just orange soda and cake mix, you can expect a very sticky and spongy cake, much like angel food. Which means you can expect them to stick to the pan, and to each other, so you'll want to store these between layers of wax paper. You may even want to keep them in the fridge. You can expect to have a little whipped-cream-frosting left over. Is leftover whipped cream a good enough excuse to run to the market for fresh berries? Because that's what I did. AND, you can expect anyone who loves orange soda or orange creamsicles to ask for seconds of this spectacularly simple whoopie pie. You might want to have a second batch ready. Some other posts you might enjoy: Orange Ice Cream Freeze - a tasty ice cream treat with fresh orange Orange Creamsicle Cookies - an orange buttermilk cookie with vanilla frosting and white chocolate Lemon Crinkles - a popular cookie made with cake mix and lemon zest Big thanks again to Randee for having me guest post today! You're awesome, Randee!

THANK you, Jenn!!  These are going to be DELICIOUS!!!

    I am super excited to be hosting a Bloglovin' Blog Hop with  Jenny from The NY Melrose Family, Cari and Courtnee from Two Sasters and Amy from While Wearing Heels for the month of April.  What's Bloglovin' you ask?  Well, only the greatest way to keep track of the blogs that you love.  With the discontinuation of Google Friends Connect, I decided that I needed to find another way to keep up with all of my favorite blogs that are not hosted by blogger.  I signed up for Linky Followers and I've had great success with gaining new followers, but I’m finding I don’t get any traffic to my site from Linky.  I also do not enjoy reading my favorite blogs from there.  I stumbled upon Bloglovin' and I am in love!  It is very similar to Google Reader, in that you can see the beginning of the post and the first picture attached to the post.  Plus, Bloglovin' automatically updates your posts, unlike Linky Followers, which you have to manually update each time you write a new post.  I don't know about you, but I just don't have the time to do that every time.  Another added bonus is there is a Bloglovin' application for IPhone and Android devices.  Woohoo!  Like I don't spend enough time reading blogs.  Now it's a simple touch.  Love it!

    ***These are the complete instructions for sign up, so skip to the rules if you already have Bloglovin'***
    In order to participate in this hop you need to sign up for Bloglovin’.  Go to Bloglovin'.   Hit the green sign up button in the right hand corner.  Next enter an email address and create your password.  You will get a confirmation eamil that you will need to follow a link back to Bloglovin' to continue the process.  Once you click on the link you will be brought to a page where it says to choose blogs to follow.  You don't need to do this.  Click next in the bottom right hand corner.  The next screen let’s you know about the mobile app so just click next again.  This screen will show that you are not following any blogs.  Click on Account in the upper right hand corner and toggle down to widget.  Choose the widget you want displayed on your page.  Put your url into the search query and it should pull up your site.  Click on your site and it will say display this icon.  The next page should bring you to a screen that has you display it into your layout.   Once you hit publish you’re done!  If you view your blog you should see the icon and now your followers can add you to their Bloglovin’ feed.  Seriously, so simple.  So let’s get to the blog hop.  This is a party so make sure to have some fun and mingle.

     There’s only a couple of rules:
    1.       Please follow your host – The NY Melrose Family 
    Your co-hosts Randee's Organized ChaosTwo Sasters and While Wearing Heels.
    2.      Add Bloglovin' to your blog.
    3.      Post our button for the blog hop on your page to promote the fun.



    If you're interested in cohosting next week shoot me an email at  Alright, so let's have some fun and mingle!

    Tips and Tasty

    Pin It
    WOOO HOOO, it's 

    Here are a few tips to help you around the house!

    1. Did you know that baby oil will help remove latex paint from your skin??

    2. You can use Salt as an Iron Cleaner??
    Eliminate sticky residue from an iron. Run the hot iron (no steam) over plain paper sprinkled with salt!!

    3. You can use a Newspaper as Refrigerator Odor Absorber
    Use it as a liner in your vegetable drawer to absorb odors!

    Now for the TASTY!!!  This is a recipe from my SWEET friend Stacey Johnson!!  She owns a shop called 

    She has clothes, jewelry, flip flops....basically anything BLING, BLING!!  
    So be sure to stop by and check her out!!  ;)

    Chicken Enchilada Dumplings

    I use canned chicken cause I can't stand the smell of boiled chicken so...
    • 3 lrg cans of cooked chicken
      1 can cream of chicken
      1 8oz sour cream
      1 can rotel (opt.)
      1 lrg can green Chilis
      1 lrg can blk olives (opt)
      1 pkg shredded cheese (your choice, I use mexican/pepper jack) can also use Velveeta :)

      I combine all the ingredients until bubbly. Tear all tortillas (1 pkg of 10) into pieces (I like bit size). Spray bottom of pan lightly (so tortillas don't stick) Then layer soup mix, tortillas and so on. I sprinkle cheese on top. Makes a LRG pan full. Cook @350 for 30-45 min covered with foil. Then uncover and cook another 10 min.

      I made this tonight and we LOVED it!!  ;)

    WOOO HOOOOOO!!!  Today is

    Selena from Just Life is stopping by to give us some AWESOME advice for mom's and WOMEN in general!!!  She is a VERY talented author!!  Hope you enjoy!!!

    Just Life: We’re all tired
    The other day I went to the Laundromat to… clean clothes obviously. And I decided to bring my Women’s Health Magazine with me instead of work for once. It was a small brain break. I had been reading this mag for about 2+ weeks at this point. But of course the story I opened up to was about women and exhaustion. A topic I am very familiar with (I don’t know how she does it in morning glory 
    Women at any age have endured the thought and feeling of they HAVE to do everything. If not everything, then they can’t rest until things are done. And then when we try to rest, we can’t quite keep ourselves from making lists in our head. Single, a wife and/or mother, no matter the lifestyle, there is this pressing thought of “I need to keep going”. I am definitely guilty of this. Surely many of you are as well.
    Is the question, Do we not feel worthy of rest? We could possibly be overcompensating for our fore-mothers who gave us the right to work with the boys, vote and do all the things they couldn’t. Do we feel like we need to constantly keep up? For me many times, it’s more about seeing the balance in my bank account and thinking “If I work more or harder, the number will grow”. I’m not sure if it’s because of how I was raised, but that thinking could possibly kill me with the way I’ve been going.
    The Cosmopolitan Editor-in- Chief, Kate White, even had some words to share on this topic. She revealed that she has been putting some thought into women and exhaustion. Kate mentioned a European banker whose boss said suffered from “a failure to switch off”. As I read the comment, I laughed. Sleep isn’t relaxing anymore either. We “half sleep” and are still semi awake. Some of my best ideas came to me in the morning while lying in bed waiting for my alarm to go off.
    The saddest part about all this is that there even seems to be a competition of who is suffering the most. I’ve had many conversations with friends like this,
    Friend 1: I’m beat and I’m not even done with organizing my files and cleaning the house.
    Friend 2: Me too. I have to call some clients, file, reply to a gazillion emails, brush my teeth, prepare for tomorrow’s meeting, clean the house, get gas in the car, scrounge for money, oh and attend this event for a little while, go to the gym, finish a report for my boss.
    Friend 1: I know what you mean. I also have to clean my car, shop for groceries, babysit Sally’s cat, take pennies to the bank, send out a mass email to my department, donate some blood, travel 3 hours by train to a client, my nephew is coming this weekend, I have no insurance so I can’t go to the doctor, and my To Do List is never-ending.
    It’s like a Pokemon match. You whip out a higher level to beat the other person. In this case, the only way to beat the other person is to stress or overextend yourself. Instead we should be boasting about getting a chance to relax. Supporting each other to relax! Not upping the ante. So take a break, cup of tea and lock yourself in your bedroom with your favorite magazine; even if it’s less than ten minutes. Challenge your friends to do the same and see who wins.

    Birthday Wrapping

    Want a really cute new way to wrap a Birthday present, really fast???

    Miracle Grow Expand 'n Gro Concentrated Planting Mix

    Pin It

    This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Scotts® for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

    Today I am sharing a new product with all of my readers called Expand ‘n Gro™!!!  It is an awesome new product by Miracle Gro!  it is a revolutionary mix of natural coconut coir and Miracle-Gro® plant food.

    When mixed with native soil, Expand 'n Gro™ helps loosen and aerate soil. Even if you have heavy, compacted or clay soil in your garden, Expand 'n Gro™ makes it easier to work and up to 40% lighter. And, unlike traditional soil amendments, coconut coir breaks down slowly in the soil, so it improves native soil for multiple years.

    Coir's unique moisture holding abilities help Expand 'n Gro™ retain more moisture than basic potting and garden soils and then releases water as plant need it to help prevent over or under watering.

    We live in a VERY HOT ahd DRY climate in Oklahoma and I have yet found anything to help me grow plants on our back porch!!  It gets direct sun all day, every day!!  It is horrible!!  I can not wait to try this and see how it works retaining water for my plants!  EnG Product Shot.png

    Expand 'n Gro™ holds water and feeds better than native soil, basic potting and garden soil. Expand 'n Gro™ provides your plants with what they need, when they need it, giving you Miracle-Gro results like never before. You'll get up to 3x the Flowers & Vegetables.  It feeds up to 6 months and holds up to 50% more water than regular potting soil

    When mixed with your native soil, Expand 'n Gro™ works as a long lasting soil amendment by improving the workability and aeration of the soil. In fact, the all natural fibers in Expand 'n Gro™ will significantly improve native soild for multiple years, making it a great multi-year value for in-ground planting.


    I will be having a giveaway for people who comment!  This is an easy way to prep your garden for the upcoming summer!  So what better way than to get a free trial for just commenting on my site!!  Advertisement

    Sleepy Sunday Linky Party

    Pin It
    WOW....hard to believe another Easter has come and gone!!!  We had an awesome Easter celebrating our Christ rising from the grave!!!  This week is Jenn's turn and her giveaway so here she is.......

    He is not here, for He has risen. Just as He said. ~ Matthew 28:6

    Happy Easter everyone! By the way, did you know that the Easter 'Octave' actually lasts eight weeks?! So, even though we took a week off last week, it's not too late to wish you all a Happy Easter! Last week, I decided to take the WHOLE week off and celebrate Easter (and a wedding - so fun!) with my family. Good fellowship (and GREAT music) in church, followed by good food, a GREAT time with family and more Easter egg hunting than I can remember! We are truly blessed!

    Last week's party was full of great Easter and Spring decorating ideas, so I hope everyone took a few minutes to look around and leave a comment or two for your fellow crafty party goers. I know I love hearing from others and I'm sure you do too! In honor of the NEW life we have been given in Christ, I wanted to introduce you to three newcomers to our Sassy (Sleepy) Sunday Blog Hop and thank ALL of you for sharing your ideas with us!

    First, check out this cute, quick cabinet redo from Bee @
    Beez Rental Designs! Her site is dedicated to crafty decorating solutions for those living in space that's not their own (aka: rental property). What a great idea!!

    Second, look at this table runner from Fifi @ About Blogging Time! Can you say Fab-u-lous?!?! I love it!!

    And last, but not least, this darling Easter Cloche from Marisa @ Marisa's Pieces Online. I too am a fan of Ballet Slipper Pink (wink, wink) and this project is super cute!!

    At the last party, a SURPRISE giveaway was up for grabs to the crafty gal with the most views who also linked back to one or both the hostesses sites and I am happy to announce that Kate @ A Creative Cookie is our winner with her adorable sock bunnies!!!

    And here's what she's won!!

    What is it you ask?! Well, that's a very good question. It's obviously very old and used to measure things, but what exactly it is . . . . well, I'm not really sure! It has an adjustable piece with brass inlays to help keep it accurate over time and a tiny metal pin on one end that makes me think of a compass, but I don't think that's what it is. I have asked a few people, including a carpenter and an architect, if perhaps they had any ideas, but so far I haven't come up with anything definitive yet.

    Would, love, love, love if anyone knows anything to let the rest of know so we can all learn something new about this little piece of history I found in Round Top! I look forward to sharing all my 'Friday Finds' from Round Top this week, as well as a couple of of projects I am finishing up for the kids' room! In the mean time, you know the rules . . . .!
