Quick, Easy, Yummy Baking......

or, at my house yesterday, Plan Number 3 due to lack of ingredients!

Due to a couple of recent Bake Sales, the tree lighting and my oldest daughter's huge paper mache project........
I was out of flour!!!!

The girls and I went to make snickerdoodles for another bake sale during the snow storm yesterday and I realized I had no flour. I usually don't go through a bag quite so fast and usually have another bag in the closet, but not yesterday.

I quickly moved on to Plan Number 2 and decided to make cupcakes. Can you believe-I had no cake mixes either!!! All I had were brownie mixes but I didn't want to make just plain brownies. I knew you could make cookies using cake mixes so I searched for cookies made out of brownie mix.

BINGO!
I found this recipe for Brownie Chip Cookies
All you need is 1/3 cup of oil, chocolate chips and 2 eggs-sigh....I had all the ingredients!

Quick, easy to mix up, yummy! My 4 year and I made another batch today because the girls loved them and only got 1 each yesterday.

So, if you're running short on flour or time, this is a great recipe. I think it also would be yummy with some m & m's thrown in..........

Now I just have to make sure I keep eggs in the house-I always seem to run out of those too!!

We'll have to try those out. I don't think you can go wrong with chocolate! And I love the paper mache project. She did a great job!

I thought your paper mache project was a cake and was like wow, she should be on the cooking channel. Good job coming up with something to make.

That's awesome! I love brownies and cookies so this is the best combination! I'm definitely going to try this recipe.

Thanks for stopping by today. I am afraid of ships. I've never been on a cruise so I know where you are coming from. Maybe one day I'll get up the nerve to go. My mom lives in the Virgin Islands and took those pictures when the ship docked for a few days. I was in shock with all of the features it has not to mention the size.
