ROUND ROBIN



Click here to visit with Amy and join in today's Round Robin.



Can you say P.I.N.T.E.R.E.S.T.? I have been finding so many goodies to make and the easier the better. Well this one was super easy with only two ingredients. That's right, just the cake mix and the can of pumpkin! I didn't have the yellow cake mix in the house but I had a spice mix. Well they were awesome, the family loved them and I made a cream cheese frosting which only made them better. (I love cream cheese frosting)






Then I tried them with a yellow cake mix. I also put cream cheese in the middle which I saw on another recipe. I made a streusel topping for them also. They were good but I liked them better with the spice cake mix and the family agreed with that.

Amber made these cute little mice for Open House last weekend at Hallmark. They each made something from a cookbook that was on sale for Open House. Here is a link to the same recipe that I found online. We never really tasted them but they were the first to go.


I want to say thank you to our son-in-law Dylan for his service to our country as a Marine. For those who have served, those who are serving now and those who have given their lives for us: THANK YOU

Oh my goodness, those mice are sweet! This all sounds so delicious!

And my thoughts are with your son-in-law and his family today. I appreciate the sacrifices they're making!

The mice are unique. I like your pictures.
I will have to adjust the recipe for my wheat free, gluten free lifestyle, and send the recipe on to my granddaughter who turns thirteen Dec 2. She loves to cook and bake.

Another thank you to your son-in-law ... and all those who have served/are serving!

And the pumpkin with spice cake sounds delicious! I'm going to remember that the next time I need to make a cake!

Those little mice cookies are cute! i haven't seen those. I have lots of holiday ideas pinned...trying to narrow down now the ones I will actually make : ) There is definitely going to be some fun new things at the holidays here this year.

Thanks for following me - I've followed you back, but there has been a delay lately w/ my pic showing up when I follow, so I'll come back to double check it goes through in a couple of days.

I love the cupcake idea - so easy! I make a couple of recipes that start w/ cake mixes, and it definitely makes for a good short cut.

Hi Debby. I'm stopping by from Chatty Crone's blog. I'm going to HAVE to try that cake/pumpkin recipe. I just read about it on another blog, but couldn't tell you where. The easier, the better, for me when it comes to cooking and baking! You have a lovely blog!
