Phenomenal Pineapple Upside Down Cake

DIY/ DIY Recipes

As much as I would love to say I made this from scratch, I can’t.  Yes, this beautiful cake was made from cake mix out of the box folks.  However, there are tons of ingredients added, so I suppose you could say I made it from “semi-scratch”.  Read More

Cinnamon Rolls With a Valentine’s Day Twist!

DIY Recipes

You want to make something quick, yummy, and Valentin’s Day oriented without all the work?  This is the perfect treat! Trust me, these look fancy but they only take 15 minutes to make, 10 of which they’re in the oven and that requires no work at all.

HERE’S WHAT YOU WILL NEED

1 Container of Pilsbury Cinnamon Rolls (gave me 9 shapes)

Red food coloring

Cookie Sheet/ Aluminum pan for baking

Optional: sprinkles, Vanilla Bean ice cream

INSTRUCTIONS

  1.  Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Create shapes with the cinnamon roll dough.  Don’t get frustrated, these do not come apart easily.  Use your play-doh skills to roll and form shapes.

3.  While the shapes are in the oven, microwave icing cup (comes inside of cinnamon roll container ) for 10 seconds, this will make it easier to stir the food coloring in.  Add 2-3 drops of food coloring to icing.

4.  Bake cinnamon roll shapes for 10 minutes, then add red drizzle and sprinkles.  Add vanilla bean ice cream on the side to dip shapes into.

Teddy Graham Mini Cheesecakes

DIY/ DIY Recipes

A perfect cheesecake option for kids!!!

 

I created these treats because my daughter loves cheesecake!  However, we all know kids waste so much food!  My daughter had a random request for cheesecake but it just didn’t feel right buying a six-year old a big fancy cheesecake.  For some reason, this dessert, cheesecake, seems to be dedicated to adults.  I personally have never seen a children’s cheesecake.  I put a fun spin on it by incorporating Nabisco’s Teddy Grahams for the crust and toppings.Read More
