My Inspiration . . .

I've always had a love for baking, but it wasn't until I was in college that I had a desire to learn how to cook. In 2009, I decided to start my own cooking blog so I could access my recipes from anywhere, and was born.

I love trying new recipes and finding ways to make them healthier & happier on the hips! I love everything about food: the taste, the smells, the presentation, the experimenting, etc. I love to entertain, so I figured this was a great way to bring people together. Hope you enjoy trying out some of the recipes. Happy cooking!

Mama's Gooey Butter Cookies

{Prep time: 15 mins / Cooking time: 11-13 mins / Difficulty: Easy / Yields: 3 dozen}

1 (8oz) pkg light cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 egg
1/4 tsp vanilla
1 (18oz) box yellow cake mix
1/4 cup powdered sugar

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In medium bowl, cream together cream cheese and butter. Stir in egg and vanilla. Add cake mix, stirring until well blended.
2. Roll into 1" balls, then roll balls in powdered sugar (I put powdered sugar in a bowl and roll them around in there - it's faster, easier and less messy!)
3. Place balls 1" apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.
4. Bake for 11-13 mins. Remove from baking sheets and let cool on wire rack.
