Coming Soon!

Lately I haven’t made anything new to post for you guys. But tomorrow, I will be making Peppermint Sugar cookies. The peppermint frosting is from December. I bought it and forgot to use it so I’m just going to make the best of it.

Stay tuned for a post on Monday about the delicious cookies. Also the cookies are going to be snowflake shaped. So fun!

Spicy Fish Dinner

One of my favorite dinners is definitely fish. My family loves spicy food (especially on chicken) and wanted to try out chicken seasonings on fish! Me and my dad made this dish together. Here is the recipe!

Ingredients:

Fresh Salmon (any number depending on how many people your making this for.)

Paprika

Ancho Chili Pepper

Salt

Black Pepper

Cayenne Pepper

Olive Oil

Chili Powder

Cilantro

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350.

  1. Line a baking pan with foil and put you fish in. Pour 1 tablespoon of olive oil on each fish and spread out evenly.
  2. Season fish with salt evenly. Add seasonings in this order: paprika, Chili Powder, Ancho Chili Pepper, Cayenne Pepper, Black Pepper. Garnish fish with cilantro.
  3. Bake fish for 25-30 minutes or until the fish is a light pink. Cool for 5 minutes and serve with sides (such as broccoli, rice, beans, mashed potatoes, etc.) as desired.

Cookie In a Pan

Why bake a cookie on a baking sheet when you can bake it in a pan? My mom got a cookie in a pan mix for Christmas! Of course, she let me use it because if you know anything about me at all, it’s that I love to bake.

This was my first time making one. I had the “season” the pan before using it by coating it with oil and baking it for 30 minutes. That was the only downside to the whole thing. It did make for a delicious cookie though. Here’s what the box looked like:

Here’s how mine turned out:

Mmm…Pie!

Everyone knows you can’t have Christmas without pie. On Christmas Eve, I baked three pies; two pumpkin and one cherry. Nothing like good old fashion pumpkin pie that’s what I say. I got to share one of my pumpkin pies and my cherry pie with my family at Christmas lunch, it was really fun. But enough about my Christmas and more about baking!

This was my first year making pies so the crust on the pumpkin might be a little funky. But the cherry pie I’m very proud of. Just click the left or right arrows to look at my pictures!

Chocolate Crinkles

Happy New Year! I’m so excited to be posting again after all the hype after New Year’s. I did lot’s of baking while I was away and can’t wait to post about it!

One thing I made was Chocolate Crinkle cookies. I made these last year but didn’t do so well, so this was a redo. These aren’t from scratch, I bought them at target. These are Betty Crocker branded and were really fun to make. Their chewy, chocolatey, and covered in powdered sugar. These are a traditional Christmas goodie.

Peppermint Brownies

When you go to the store you always come home with more than you planned to buy. When I came home from the store the other day, I came home with peppermint brownie mix! This is betty Crocker branded and is perfect for the holiday season. I even have a frosting recipe for you guys to try.

This was how my brownies turned out:

IMG_2076If you do end up making these you are definitely going to need at least 2 candy canes. You can even throw in some Christmas sprinkles like I did! But what you really need is the frosting. I’ll show you how!

 Ingredients:

2 c. powdered sugar

1-2 tbls. milk

1/2 tsp. Vanilla

1/4 c. Butter

few drops of red food coloring

Directions:

Blend butter in medium bowl on low speed until creamy. Gradually add powdered sugar keeping the mixer on low speed. Add milk, vanilla, and food coloring and beat at medium speed. Spread on cooled brownies.

Frosting tip: only add 2 drops of food coloring to make a nice peppermint pink color for your frosting.

I hope you enjoyed reading and that you give this a try !Target definitaly sells this so go grab a box to enjoy! Don’t forget to like and check my other posts. Bye!

 

 

 

 

 

Snowball Cookies

For the first time I got to make traditional Christmas cookies. Snowballs! If you haven’t heard of them I’ll sum it up for you. Snowballs are little shortbread cookies rolled in powdered sugar. I made these from a box so there’s no recipe– but there is a picture!

IMG_1941

They’re really good and perfect for the holiday season! I totally recommend trying these.

Well that’s all for now folks. I will be leaving town on Saturday and will be gone for a little while, so I won’t be posting any time soon. Thanks for reading and Happy Thanksgiving!

Why was I gone?!/ My Last Fall Treat

Hey guys!

I have been gone for about 1-2 months. The truth is I forgot to post. But it isn’t my fault! I was on vacation. And now I’m about to go on another vacation for thanksgiving–in California. I will be there for a little over a week. I’m not just going there for vacation, i’m also going there for my sisters pageant! (ok, this will take a bit of explaining.) My older sister Kelly competed in a pageant for our state… Michigan! She was competing for the title of Miss Michigan Jr. Teen. Jr. Teen is one of the divisions in the pageant. There are 6 divisions: Princess, Jr. Pre-teen, Pre-teen, Jr. teen, Teen, and Miss. Each division is for a different age group. This pageant isn’t about beauty at all, it’s about confidence and being yourself. Kelly was 2nd runner-up overall. Because of this she was invited to the national pageant (which is this Saturday) and will be competing for the title of National All-American Miss Jr. Teen. Girls from all over the country will be competing for this title. But only the girls that were runners-up or won an optional contest. So it all makes sense now? Great! Now I can move on.

My Last Fall Treat

While I was on my first vacation I made acorn shaped pumpkin cookies. These were made from a box also so I’m just going to share a picture!

IMG_1927There are leaf shaped cookies also. I frosted the cookies with chocolate and vanilla frosting. I made these cookies near Halloween. Boo!

This will be my last fall treat for this year. I’m kind of sad because that means that another year is coming and going. But now I get to make gingerbread cookies, snowball cookies, sugar cookies, and more Christmas treats! In fact, I will be posting something new tomorrow, so keep and eye out for a new post!
