HOMEMADE Basic Cake Mix by 3glol.net

HOMEMADE Basic Cake Mix Here’s a simple homemade cake mix for ya.  I halved the recipe for mine.  We were going for a thinner two layer cake for this particular occasion.  I spunked it up though and added purple food coloring for my granddaughter’s birthday party.  She was doing a very colorful party theme. The frosting I made for this was a Creamy Whipped Nutella Frosting.  Man that was some

Creamy Whipped Nutella Frosting by 3glol.net

Creamy Whipped Nutella Frosting Have any Nutella lovers out there?  Then they’ll love this.  My granddaughter absolutely loves Nutella and for her birthday, I made this frosting.  She was in town and we were making, baking and cooking all day long for her party.  This was the cake and frosting we made.  The frosting is to die for, if I say so myself. The decor you see ALL over it

Fun Filled Velvet Cake by 3glol.net

Fun Filled Velvet Cake What an awesome cake to use for a Birthday, right? This was a huge hit.  Met up with my sisters for the day and took this as our “treat”.  After dinner, we hit this baby up.  And it was good.  Now, I would change one thing.  The M&Ms were not as crunchy after being inside the cake like that.  So, next time, I’ll use a different

Easter Basket Cookie Cups by 3glol.net

Easter Basket Cookie Cups Aren’t these cute?  I saw the recipe in the magazine “Simply Sweet Fun Treats” . Pretty much followed it like a good girl.  However, after making them, with the help of 2 of my grandsons, I would change up one thing.  I wouldn’t use the cupcake liners.  They are not as easy to get off cookie cups as they are cupcakes. These were much easier to

GREEN Mint Chocolate Cheesecake - NO BAKE

Green Mint Chocolate Cheesecake – NO BAKE This would be a great dessert for St. Patrick’s Day…..or any other time of the year!  If you love mint chocolate chip, this cheesecake is for you. Best part………it’s a “no bake” cheesecake. AND it tastes like Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream. “No Bake” cheesecakes are my fav for a couple of reasons. One, they’re so much quicker and easier to make than

17 St Patricks Day Food Ideas by 3glol.net

17 St Patricks Day Food Ideas     There is just a little more than a week away from St. Patrick’s Day.  (ha, I’m a poet and didn’t know it).  Time to figure out what to make if you celebrate this awesome Irish holiday.  St. Patrick’s Day is a great holiday in my opinion, not that you asked for it.  It’s just a fun holiday.  Baking, eating and partying rank

St Patricks Candy Dipped Oreos by 3glol.net

St Patricks Candy Dipped Oreos Another holiday gives me yet another reason to bake goodies, just with different colors. 🙂  Having Irish in me and all, I like St. Patrick’s Day. But not just because I’m Irish. It’s one of those holidays that has no “present buying” attached to it.  We can just celebrate. These St Patricks Candy Dipped Oreos are very similar to the Candy Dipped Cookies I made

The New Green Bean Casserole by 3glol.net

The NEW Green Bean Casserole Do you like Green Bean Casserole?  Do you only eat it for Thanksgiving?  Why?  You can have this NEW Green Bean Casserole anytime, with any meal. My daughter and I came up with a new way to make this.  Instead of using Cream of Mushroom soup, we used Alfredo Sauce.  You heard me right.  Alfredo Sauce. The idea came up when we were thinking of

Valentines Day Coconut Cupcakes by 3glol.ne

Valentine’s Day Coconut Cupcakes My Mom loves coconut cakes and cupcakes. Since she’s here visiting, I made her fav, but in Valentine’s Day form.  Aren’t these cute?  They’re tasty too.  Did I mention they were easy as well?  Welp…they are some of the easiest I’ve made so far. Keeping pretty true to myself, I used a cake mix, instead of by scratch and already made frosting.  All I did to

Valentines Brownies by 3glol.net

Valentine’s Brownies Totally cheated, as usual, with this one.  All you need to do is spruce up a box Brownie mix with some candy and decor. Change it into Valentine’s Brownies just like that. Take your favorite brownie mix, add some M&M’s, sprinkle on some decor/sprinkles and if you want to take it a step further, squeeze some frosting on top as well. My Mom is in town visiting and

Valentine Trash Bars

Valentine Trash Bars I made some Halloween Trash Bars around Halloween, of course, and my daughter has been bugging me to make them again.  I decided to make them again, but this time make them Valentine’s Day Trash Bars. In my mind, and that’s a skeery place right now, I thought this is a great name for all of us who don’t have a Valentine (Sweetheart) to share Valentine’s Day

Cut Out SOFT Sugar Cookies

Cut Out Soft Sugar Cookies   Have you ever had those soft frosted cookies they sell in the bakeries of most grocery stores?  They’re cake like.  This is them 🙂 I personally like a little crunch to my cookie, but every now and then, I go for the soft.  They happen to be Sarah’s favorite. These taste just like them. A little heads up here.  When you decide to make

Candy Cane Kisses Cheesecake by 3GLOL.net

Candy Cane Kisses Cheesecake   What a yummy & festive cheesecake.  Am I right?  This is made with candy cane Kisses, obviously, which are basically white chocolate with little bitty peppermint pieces.  The Kisses alone are delish!  Add them to the cheesecake and you have a double yummy treat! If you don’t like the candy cane Kisses, substitute them for another type.  They have a Cherry Cordial Creme that would

Peanut Brittle by 3GLOL.net

Peanut Brittle Peanut Brittle is a classic, don’t you think?  It makes a great gift for friends and family too.  I made some for my fam and one of my neighbors.  They loved it.  I love it.  But I can’t eat as much as I use to.  Couple reasons.  My teeth can’t handle it like they use to and it makes me fat now.  🙂 This is a sticky recipe

Christmas Popcorn Cake by 3glol.net

Christmas Popcorn Cake Not only is this a festive Christmas Cake, but I used a bundt pan to make it look like a wreath. Bonus!  I was inspired to make this when I was at my Son’s house last weekend.  He had a store bought mini popcorn cake and it was sooooo cute.  I told him that I needed to make one of those.  And I did!  This is very

Christmas Muddy Buddies by 3GLOL.net

Christmas Muddy Buddies These Christmas muddy buddies are pretty much your typical Muddy Buddies aka Puppy Chow, without peanut butter. Because, these are made just for Christmas.  Got your red and green colors going on here.  So, these would be great to set out during the holidays or during a party.  I’m using these as gifts.  Plan on giving some to my neighbors.  You could use mason jars and fancy
