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!

Cake Batter Pudding Cookies

I stumbled upon this cake batter pudding cookie recipe and couldn't wait to try it out. This cookie dough is so tasty! I have been using a silicone baking mat when I bake cookies, and have noticed a significant difference in the consistency of the cookies. Just a suggestion if you have one handy ;-) Otherwise just bake on a greased baking sheet. Enjoy!
{ Prep Time: 15 mins / Baking Time: 10-12 mins / Difficulty: Easy / Yields: 3 dozen }

1 1/2 sticks butter, (3/4 cup) softened
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar/splenda
1 (3.4 oz) package instant vanilla pudding mix (I made one batch with sugar free and it tasted just as delicious! It reduces the sugar a good bit.)
3/4 cup yellow cake mix
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp baking soda
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 cup sprinkles of your choice

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, salt and baking soda; then set aside.
3. In a large mixing bowl - with the paddle attachment - cream butter and sugars together. Add the pudding package and cake mix and beat until well combined.
4. Add eggs and vanilla. Slowly add the flour mixture and mix until just incorporated. Stir in your sprinkles.
5. Roll into 1" balls and place on a greased baking sheet. Bake for 10-12 mins.
