I made my first Crinkle Cookies last week and now I am hooked! These fast and easy cookies use boxed cake mix so you can make any flavor you want! You roll them in a powdered sugar mix and when they bake they flatten and "crinkle" into these pretty, tasty cookies! The first kind I tried was red velvet and I used a recipe from Duncan Hines. They were pretty but tasted just ok. Somewhat dry and bland. So I tried a few different recipes and added a few different ingredients until I finally hit the jackpot and came up with the perfect recipe! The secret ingredient: pudding mix to make them extra moist and soft! Even better, I used Pink Velvet cake mix and pink and yellow colored chocolate chips for fun, colorful Springtime Crinkle Cookies!
This recipe for Huckleberry Ice Cream Soda Floats is one that Ashton and I made together last summer right after our trip to his hometown in Montana and before he left for his deployment. This trip was my first to Montana and (gasp!) my first time trying huckleberries. I may have gone huckleberry crazy and I seriously think I ordered huckleberry something-or-other with every meal out. These tiny, sweet-tart berries are perfect in drinks, desserts, sauces, pretty much everything! After our huckleberry filled trip, I made sure to bring home a bag full of huckleberry goodies including honey, jam, syrup, coffee, soda, and taffy!
