Whip up a batch of these cookies in just 20 minutes!

We’re heading into baking season (and bake sale season… and cookie exchange season…!) and while we have favourite classics, it’s always fun to try something new. I recently tried this cake mix cookie recipe from MomEh and it’s safe to say we’ll be making them again. Sometimes you just want a recipe that’s quick and easy, no fuss, and these cake mix cookies are perfect for that- especially if you’re looking for ideas to make for bake sales and cookie exchanges! 

Ingredients

1 box of cake mix (I used the one with sprinkles already mixed in)

1/2 cup softened butter or vegetable oil

1 egg

Optional: food colouring and/ or sprinkles 

Directions

  1. Preheat oven according to cake mix and line cookie sheet with parchment paper
  2. Combine wet ingredients in one bowl and dry ingredients in another (if your cake mix doesn’t have sprinkles already mixed in, add them to the dry ingredients). Mix together until batter is a smooth consistency
  3. Roll into approx 1 tsp size balls, spacing them about 2″ apart
  4. Bake for 10- 15 minutes or until edges start to turn golden brown.
  5. Allow to cool and enjoy!

The cookies in this post were made using a regular cake mix, but we also made a batch using a gluten-free cake mix and they turned out just as delicious.

Tip: If you make these cookies using a gluten-free cake mix, simply scoop batter onto cookie sheets if you can’t get the batter to form a ball.

For this recipe, I used a Betty Crocker Cake Mix and added sprinkles, but we’ve tried a few different gluten-free cake mixes including Kinnikinnick, and XO Baking CO and have enjoyed them. Your local grocery store probably carries some, but you can also find a variety on Amazon

roast potato soup recipe

If you’re looking for something tasty to enjoy on a cool Fall day, this roast potato soup is the perfect comfort food to cozy up with.

We all love a good soup to warm us up when it’s cold outside, don’t we? I’m not even going to pretend that this is a light, low-fat, etc meal idea. But it’s delicious and simple to make, with just a few simple ingredients.

This recipe is comfort food through and through, but hey, we all have to indulge a little, don’t we?

I originally shared this recipe on the La-Z Boy Lifestyle Meets Comfort blog, but after a request from a friend, I’m sharing it here as well. I owe my brother for sharing this recipe with me and ever since I first tried it I knew it would be one I made again and again and again. It’s a crowd pleaser, promise.

The next time you’re in the mood to make soup, I hope you’ll give this recipe a try!

roast potato soup recipe

Ingredients

5- 6 large potatoes, washed and cut into large chunks (peeling optional based on preference)

3 medium white onions, sliced thin

½ cup butter + 2- 3 tbsp

3 tbsp olive oil

½ bulb garlic, peeled and minced

6 cups whole milk (+ 1- 2 cups more to achieve desired consistency and flavour)

Salt and pepper to taste

Chopped bacon to garnish

Directions

1) Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a large bowl toss potato chunks in olive oil until evenly coated.

2) In an oven- safe dish, spread potato chunks evenly in one layer. Bake in oven for 40- 45 minutes, until golden brown.

3) While potatoes are roasting, heat a frying pan over medium heat. Melt ½ cup of butter and reduce heat to low. Add the onion slices and minced garlic and toss in the melted butter.

4) Caramelize until the onions are golden brown and remove from heat.

5) Remove potatoes from oven and mash to an even consistency (they do not have to be completely free of lumps).

6) In a large pot, warm milk over medium heat and add potatoes, onion, and garlic. Stir until well blended. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

7) Remove half of the soup and pour into a blender; pulse until it has reached a smooth consistency. If you prefer a smooth soup, repeat this step with the remaining half of soup.

8) Add all of the roast potato soup back into the large pot and place over medium heat and allow to simmer for 5- 10 minutes. Taste test and add more butter and/ or salt and pepper for flavour.

9) Finally, garnish the roast potato soup with chopped bacon bits for garnish and serve immediately, or allow to cool completely and reheat portions as desired.

Easy Gluten Free Apple Crumble Recipe

gluten free apple crumble recipe

Comfort food season is right around the corner and what’s better on cozy evenings than a plate of warm, yummy apple crumble? Top with some vanilla ice cream for extra decadence… yummmmm. A friend brought one over a few weeks ago and when a neighbor gave us some apples from her tree I knew exactly what I wanted to make with them. Gluten-free crumbles are an easy way to combine all the goodness of a pie without having to fret over perfecting the crust (something I’m trying to find a good gluten-free recipe for).  View Post

Healthy Smoothie Recipe Ideas

Hands up whose kids pick and choose what they like to eat on the daily? One day they’ll happily snack on apple slices and the next they push them away with a ‘really Mom?’ kind of look. Kids, amiright?! I totally admit I was a picky eater as a kid (sorry Mum and Dad!) and now with my kids I’ve gone from one end of the extreme to the other: I’ve had phases where they’ll try anything I serve them (yessss!!!) to days when everything I put in front of them is pushed away/ spat out/ thrown on the floor, etc.- and everything in between as part of the crazy yo-yo that is feeding children. Ughhhhhh. Somedays I just throw my hands up and ask for a little more patience and ideas for foods they’ll eat. View Post

This Valentine’s Day popcorn is a sweet treat everyone will enjoy snacking on. It’s a fun snack to send to school for a Valentine’s party or to put in treat bags to give with Valentines cards (like these cute candy hearts ones!). It just takes a few minutes to whip up a batch (perfect for that ‘oops I forgot’ moment the night before 😉 : all you have to do is melt some white chocolate and choose your favourite sweets to mix in. I’ve even got some cute printable tags you can download and attach to treat bags for handing out on February 14! Who’s going to be organized for that class party? YOU ARE. Nice work mama, now let’s get to the good stuff…

Ingredients

5 cups popcorn (Tip: pop it a little ahead of time so it has time to cool)

1 cup white chocolate for melting

Sprinkles

Valentine’s candies of choice (For mine I went with Smarties and candy hearts, but for kids who are gluten free I picked up some jelly beans to mix in in place of the Smarties).

Directions

1. Melt the white chocolate and stir to remove chunks. (I tried melting the chocolate two ways: on the stove top in a double boiler and in the microwave. For some reason I had better luck in the microwave).

2.When melted, drizzle the white chocolate over the popcorn.

3.Cover with the sprinkles and allow to cool. Tip: To speed this step up pop in the freezer for 10 minutes or until the chocolate has hardened.
