Odds and Ends

The crazy got turned up to eleven here this week. Must be Spring Fever.

When I was looking for topic suggestions, Alisa asked, "How about some fun cookies to make with kids?"

I love cake mix cookies, especially these:

Confetti Cookies

Double Chocolate Chewies

And Bisquick cookies are good.

Happy Memorial Day!


  1. Enjoy the holiday weekend...hope you've got good weather and something fun planned.

  2. These look good. Thanks.
    This is my post on peanut butter flourless and dairy free cookies. Some of you might like these - so easy to make:

  3. Fruity Pebbles! I would never have thought of it but what a great idea. Hope you have a lovely spring feverish weekend!

  4. OMG! Thank you for re-posting the pistachio cookies! I was dying to make them after you posted them originally...then didn't get back online for a while...then I forgot WHERE to find them...then I forgot to LOOK for them. And wow! Here they are! I am printing this recipe out RIGHT NOW. Maybe I'll make 'em over the weekend!

  5. Grace, We make cookies like that, too. With TONS of chocolate chips!

    CAQuincy--they're good with other puddings, too, esp. chocolate.

  6. I remember those pics! Okay, I challenge you to make a cookie from my book with K this weekend ;)

  7. i may have to try the confetti cookies.

  8. I'm bookmarking those for when my monsters are bored witless this summer!

  9. I am a bit leary of cake mixes right now. These look wonderful, though! I may just have to break down and order some peanut-free mixes.
    Hope you had a wonderful holiday weekend.

  10. I always thought the picture in your header was a dairy free pizza or something with red, green, orange, and yellow bell peppers! LOL! Now I feel much better knowing they are cookies. :)

  11. Hey there. The movie I was talking about was Fireproof. I'm gonna blog about it.

    In short: you should watch it. Everyone should.

  12. Yay! Mary and I made the pistacchio cookies for her Girl Scout Fly-Up ceremony tonight. I pointed out to her how PERFECT they were because they were GREEN--for Girl Scouts! (And they only have four ingredients--which were ALL physically present in the house--so they only took tired/not-feeling-so-great Mom two minutes to mix!). Um. Yay!

    Thanks again! (Will have to try the chocolate pudding next!)
