Why Make Your Own Though Girl Scout cookies boxes say “trans-fat free,” the term is officially defined by the FDA as a food that contains less than 0.5 grams of trans fat per serving, meaning some varieties — including uber-popular Thin Mints, Samoas and Tagalongs — still contain trace amounts of the fat. The giveaway: Look for “partially-hydrogenated” on the ingredient list. That ingredient list also contains palm oil and preservatives — your homemade ones will just taste better. 2 Recipes, 5 Different Girl Scout Cookies Many of the favorite Girl Scout cookies begin with the same base: The classic shortbread cookie.

Mother's Day Bracelet {for Grandma} I've given corsages to my Mother and Mother-in-Law to wear on Mother's Day in the past. This year I wanted to do something a little different. I hope you aren't sick of my Shrinky Dink obsession, because I used them again to make this fun bracelet for my Mother-in-Law. {She doesn't even know I have a blog so I don't have to worry about ruining the surprise.} I did the names and my kids did the artwork. The process is pretty similar to the custom straight pins. After coloring it and cutting it out, I punched a nail through the top. Then I Baked it, following the directions on the package. Once it cooled I added a jump ring to the hole and attached it to my bracelet. I doubt my Mother-in-law will wear this after Mother's Day, but I think it could be a fun tradition to add new charms each year.

Chocolate Covered Brownie Ice Cream Sandwich Recipe Chocolate Covered Brownie Ice Cream Sandwich Brownies and Bars, Chocolate, Dessert, Frozen Desserts, Guest Posts | 66 comments I’m taking some time off to be with my family for a little while. The following recipe is written by Jaime of Sophistimom. Welcome, Jaime! Last year, while developing a recipe for homemade Ho-Ho’s, I accidentally made something more like a thin brownie than a cake. When Katie invited me to write this post for today, it was still cold and rainy here in the Rocky Mountains. So I turned to my food magazines for a little help, as I often do. And that became my starting point. Martha’s ice cream bar had only one cookie layer, so I wanted to make it a little different—more like an ice cream sandwich. To make them easier to dip in chocolate, I inserted wooden Dixie cup spoons, and turned them on end to set. What about you? Need another Ice Cream Sandwich Recipe? About the Author:

S'mores Pudding Pie There’s just something about s’mores. Toasted ooey gooey marshmallows with crisp hot outsides, soft, sticky, gooey insides, paired with crisp graham crackers and soft melt-y chocolate. However, there are times when making s’mores isn’t convenient, easy or do-able. However, since coming home from the amazing birthday trip of win, and toasting s’mores on the beach with good friends my kids have been hounding me hinting incessantly that they’d love to have more s’mores (see what I did there?) So… while I teased her on twitter about a s’mores pie.. I put one package of graham crackers into my food processor and pulsed them into crumb-dom To about 1 1/2 C of crumbs, I added 1/4 C sugar and then 4 Tbsp melted butter. While it’s baking, mix 2 boxes Chocolate Fudge Pudding Mix with 2 C cold milk and 1/2 container whipped topping. Scoop the chocolate pudding deliciousness into the fresh baked graham cracker pie crust (yes, you can use a pre-made, just give it a nice toasting first) and smooth.

Sell and Recycle Used Electronics - Gazelle Cinnamon Doughnut Muffins I made up these little gems this afternoon in the hopes we would have them for Sunday breakfast tomorrow morning. However, they are SO GOOD, I don’t anticipate them making it through the night. They will be devoured before bedtime. I know it. The town I live in does not sport a donut shop, can you believe that? Light, airy and just perfectly, perfect, the recipe makes nine (which is perfect for breakfast) but five have already been eaten by hungry little (and big) mouths.I just know these muffinswill be searched out through the evening. Everyone will just have to be happy with eggs for breakfast because that’s all there will be! In a large bowl,sift flour, baking powder, salt, nutmeg and cinnamon; whisk to combine. In another bowl, combine sugar, oil, egg, and milk. Stir wet ingredients into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups half-full; place one teaspoon jam on top. Place melted butter in a small bowl; combine sugar and cinnamon in another bowl.
