Banana Cookies

Standard

I have made banana bread and banana muffins but I have never made banana cookies. I had some VERY ripe bananas and figures lets see what happens. They turned out better than I thought. As you can see I added chocolate chips and peanut butter chips to my dough. It made it taste delish. You can add nuts if you want or just leave out any extras and just have simple banana cookies. These cookies are not like your normal cookie. They are more of a cake cookie.

Caramel Delight Bars

Standard

One of my favorite girl scout cookies would be the Caramel Delight cookies. I love coconut and I love caramel. I decided why not try a bar!

It is everything one would want in a bar.

Chocolate Sheet (Pan) Cake

Standard

I was not sure if I wanted to call this sheet cake because I did not really make it on a baking sheet. I baked it in a 13 x 9 pan and it still came out very delicious, just a bit thicker than your normal Texas sheet cake. My secret ingredient in this cake is the cinnamon. When my mom took the first bite, it took her a minute to figure out what it was. That is the fun with working with spices. Sometimes it is a guessing game. 🙂

Red Velvet Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

Standard

I have never made red velvet cupcakes and I never really understood the hype of why they were so amazing. Maybe it was the cream cheese icing that is pairs with it. When I asked others what the taste of red velvet cupcakes were, they really did not have an answer. When I tried it for the first time, I seriously did not have any idea how to describe the flavors. It is basically its own distinct flavor. My mom described it as a mix between a vanilla and chocolate cupcake. That made sense. I brought them into work and everyone loved them. One of the workers came up to me and told me that she did not eat pork chops but if that cream cheese frosting was all over it, she definitely would. I would definitely take that as a  compliment! 🙂
