Valentine Goodies: Sorry I was not able to finish.

I was so excited to do this series, I had the second part pictured but was not able to finish. A close family member passed away and I could not focus. The service was last weekend , beautiful and sad. I know that she would want me to keep moving forward.
In the coming weeks, I'm going to do a tutorial on bows. For your hair, or for a tie, our just for fun. Were doing some remodeling in out house so I'll have some pics of that soon too !! Have a romantic tuesday!!!!

Valentine Goodies: Cake mix cookies.

Yay!! Today is the first day of the valentine goodies series!! Our first tutorial is on Cake Mix cookies. I have been making these for about 10 years. they are fast, easy, and can be made a lot of different ways. Today's are chocolate chip red velvet !! Yummy!!
1 box cake mix (of your choice)
1/2 c. vegetable oil
2 large whole eggs
choc chips, nuts, coconut, white choc chips. Whatever you want to put in!
To the right are what you will need to make them.
What to do: Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
1.Crack eggs in to measuring cup. Just in case the shell breaks you can easily swoop it out with a larger part of the shell. Now you can put first 3 ingredients in to the bowl and mix.
Now you can add Choc chips, and any other goodies.
2. Roll cookie dough in to 1.5in balls. Make sure to give them plenty of room to grow, because they will. You can just drop spoon fulls but the come out so perfectly round when you roll them that people will think you bought them!!
3. Bake for 8-10 Min's. Let cookies cool on sheet for 5Min's, then transfer to cooling rack. The cookies will deflate a little but it makes them crispy.
All done. Beautiful cake mix cookies.
They are great with a glass of milk. Don't wait around to eat them though..... They disappear fast.
The next Valentine goodie tutorial will be on a cute way to package cookies for your sweet heart. Romantically yours..

Valentine goodies...

A few romantic things on the agenda for this week. First I need to clean my desk so I can work!!Its pretty bad. In my Etsy store I am Giving away a free button for valentines day with every purchase. I will put up pics soon but their is a choice between valentines and anti-valentines day button.(There is a link to my store in the side bar)
In the spirit of Valentines day I have decided to do a few tutorials that are great hand made gifts and are not hard to do :) They will all be up by Friday and are all things I just happen to be making for valentines day for my sweethearts. I hope you like them and share with your friends and family.
I have been slacking on my posts here, and am hoping the tutorials will get me back on the ball.
Keep living romantically.....
