I know you’re all excited for this post? I mean, BLOGGER SLEEPOVER??! Yay!
There are a lot of pictures, so I’ll keep the talking to a minimum…or typing I should say.
I woke up early yesterday morning to start working on these:
Some people are getting packagesssss!
Anyhow, this is what they consisted of: Whipper Snappers!
Can you tell what the ingredients were? Super simple and way easy!
1. Mix all three things
- 18oz cake mix of your choice
- one egg
- 8 oz of thawed cool whip
2. Spoon into ball and roll in powdered sugar
3. Bake at 350 for 10 minutes and presto!
You got yourself cookies! (You can see a more intricate display of them here from last years Christmas Baking Extravaganza!)
Another recipe I tried was from one of my mom’s old school recipe mini books that we’ve been using forever.
The Oatmeal-Chocolate Chip Snack Bars were deemed “a healthy recipe” so of course I couldn’t pass it up! I made a few subsitutions and used M&M’s instead of chocolate chips, added in English Toffee Bits, and Peanuts instead of walnuts. They were nice and moist!
We started off by preparing the insides of our sushi which included:
- Steamed Squash
- Bell Pepper
Making and cooling brown sticky rice (this stuff is amazing! 90 seconds in the microwave and that’s it!)…
Then rolling time! I brought a sushi roller to help Bobbi out on her first time making sushi, but only had one so I went sans roller, which isn’t too hard once you get used to the concept! In mine I included a bit of everything:
Look at these babies! And boy was I hungry so I dove into those things!
Then of course we did some holiday baking…for ourselves! We started off by making Tina’s Banana Oatmeal Chip Cookies but used more chocolate chips and forgot the walnuts...
And then they came out, Bobbi accidently threw the pan on the counter because there was a hole in her mit and it almost burnt her. Too funny not to photo.
I had to sample one
three and omg it was like banana bread in chocolate chip cookie form…though we could have used a more ripe banana for more enhanced flavor. And more cinnamon, def more cinnamon.
Our second and last baking product was something Bobbi had never made, and I have done a few times, either failing miserably or succeeding greatly: Scones!
We took the recipe off Meghann’s Blog from this summer when she tried them and just used chocolate chips instead of raisins (do we see a trend here?!)
Our Spiced Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Scones before they went in the oven:
And after! They came out beautifully!!! I can’t wait to try one!
We stayed up really late chatting and finally hit the hay because we knew we would be getting up for a nice RUN and my first ever experience of KICKBOXING!!! Hopefully I won’t hurt myself but I guarantee you, I will be whining about how soar I am tomorrow!
We’re off to Christmas shop afterwards! Have a great Saturday!
PS Check out Bobbi's Post to see the more gorgeous and step by step kind of pictures! My point and shoot is starting to die...and my fingers were always messy, hence fewer photos!
