Berry Smoothie

So I accidentally bought silken tofu instead of extra firm. 🤷‍♀️ I decided to make a smoothie. It turned out great!

Blueberries, raspberries, silken tofu, and orange juice
Blended up! I don’t mind the little seeds, but you could always strain it. A banana would be delicious in this, too!

Blueberry Banana Muffin Cake. I SAID MUFFIN CAKE!!! Is anyone listening?

2 mixes, 2 ripe bananas smashed, 1 cup milk. Combine and cook at 400 for 30 minutes.
It told me it felt naked, so we added frosting and sprinkles.
Sprinkles are required.
It was a big hit! Yeah for muffin cakes!
One more sneak before bed.
I think it was a hit.

Rose Water Sprinkle Vanilla Cake

So after my week, I felt like I needed some cake and sprinkles in my life! Boxed cake with my Amy sprinkle touch… I am not sure why I thought this would work, but it is the BEST CAKE EVER!

Follow the directions…


Add a heaping tablespoon of rose water…img_4954Add in a bunch of sprinkles. You want a measurement? Like 50 shakes? Mix and add in a bunt pan and cook according to box time.  Perfection. img_4946


Melt some canned vanilla frosting with extra sprinkles. Pour over the top and Add more sprinkles and let it set. I may have poked my finger in the middle to make sure it tasted ok.. I mean, look at that icing pool!!!!! My true friends at work get the leftovers tomorrow!img_4948-1img_4956

Cream Cheese Berry Hand-Pies

I made these yummy little hand pies yesterday. Becca and I really love them, but I made enough to share with my neighbor. I made one with just raspberries, a few with both, and the rest with blueberries.

I rolled out the pie crusts and cut them in 4 pieces each (8 all together). On each small pie crust, I spread a little cream cheese to cover almost the entire piece. You need a little blank space around the edges so you can pinch them together.

For the berry filling, I mixed together the following in a bowl- 1 pint blueberries, 1/2 pint raspberries. 1/4 cup of white sugar, 2 tablespoons cornstarch, a few about a teaspoon of cinnamon, a splash of vanilla, and a pinch of salt. I also would normal add a splash of lemon juice or orange juice, but I had none 😦  I used 1 heaping tablespoon per hand pie, closed them up and pinched the edges together with my fingers then a fork. I also brushed each pie with a some egg wash.

I baked them at 400 for about 15 minutes. I did them in 2 batches. There will be some leakage from the berries and possibly cream cheese, but that is fine.  They taste really great with a cup of coffee!
