{Recipes}: Belated Valentine’s Day Treat

I know this is belated like most of my blog life, but these cookies were so easy and yummy that I’d suggest making them for any holiday or loved one! (If you can’t tell by my AMAH-ZING photo skills, those are cut in hearts, sprinkled with powdered sugar and on a pink plate! BOO YAH!)

Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies from Two Peas and Their Pod

  • 1 box red velvet cake mix
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • Powdered sugar
  • Heart shaped cookie cutter

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, combine cake mix and flour. Mix together cake mix, flour, eggs, oil and vanilla. Mix until smooth. Take about 1 tablespoon of cookie dough and form into a ball.  Place cookie dough balls on prepared baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes, or until edges are set and cookies begin to crack.

Let cookies cool and then cut into hearts. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Eat the cookie scraps, and give the rest away!

Happy Heart Day before February is OVER! Now go make these green some how for St. Patty’s Day!

 

{Things I Want}: The Hunger Games

I know. I know. I sound like a preteen girl in love with a boy band, but can we all agree that the Hunger Games bandwagon is a wagon we all want to be on?!

If you are clueless to what I am talking about you live under a rock and must go read 1. The Hunger Games 2. Catching Fire and 3. Mockingjay all by Suzanne Collins and then like me start counting down the days until the movie is released in March.

Now to hold me and all you other nerdy nerds over until the movie…Right. Now.

1. Jewelry. Lots of jewelry.

2. Fun arrow inspired items

3. A Hunger Games bag to carry the books in…

4. By the way everyone is reading The Hunger Games…

5. Send your Valentine a Hunger Games inspired card

6. Recipes from the books?! WOAH! Don’t know if I can go that far, but maybe I’ll at least make cupcakes…

7. And when the time comes for the movie, you could wear some of this!

I’m sure my addicted nail polish self will buy one of these polishes…

May the odds be ever in your favor!!

Are you on the bandwagon with me?
