I don’t usually do posts like this – I try to keep this blog mostly about scrapbooking because I like it that way. But one little unexpected surprise over the weekend meant that I couldn’t finish the layouts I was working on. And my house is for sale so I can’t leave anything out when I’m not scrapbooking.
Plus, traffic problems tonight so instead of an hour, it took me an hour and forty minutes to get home. Any ounce of creativity I thought I would have tonight is gone. As much as I would like to scrapbooking right now and finishing layouts for my posts this week, it’s not going to happen. I just want to curl up on the couch and stare at the TV. Tomorrow is another day, right? All I can do is keep a smile on my face and just power through it.
So… What’s a scrapbooking blogger to do? Share a recipe, of course! LOL. Why not?
I’m not a very good baker. I’m a great cook, but I have no patience for precise measuring, which is what you need to do to bake. So this recipe is perfect for me. Dump a spice cake mix into a bowl, add a can of pumpkin and stir. Fold in chocolate chips. Drop on cookie sheets and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. I saw this recipe posted by many people on Pinterest so I’m not going to give credit to anyone in particular.
I’m not a huge pumpkin fan so it surprises me how much I’m enjoying these. But pumpkin is supposed to be so good for you so I’m making an effort to like it. Or, it could just be the dark chocolate chips that make anything magically taste yummy! I’ve made other types of cookies from cake mixes and they always turn out great. A bit softer and chewier than other cookies but that’s no problem for me because I keep cookies in the freezer. I know it’s strange, but I like them cold.
I hope to be back later this week with at least one paper crafting project. Maybe tomorrow I’ll be feeling more creative?
Thanks for dropping by today!
