First, I made baked oatmeal with apples, raisins and brown sugar. Big R loves this for breakfast and its so easy.
Then, I had bought 2 boxes of red velvet pancakes with cream cheese glaze on clearance for 50 cents each after valentines day from aldi. I decided to try making cupcakes out of the batter instead and they turned out pretty good. 1 box made 10 cupcakes. I only used 1 box so I still have another box to use for another day.
While I was using stuff up, I decided to try to make chocolate butter cookies using the recipe here. I did make a few changes to the recipe using the whole egg instead of just the yolk, 5 tbsp cocoa powder (just to use it all up) and 1 tbsp of vanilla. This are a little dry but I added the left over cream cheese glaze from the red velvet cup cakes so that helped some.
I wanted to make some strawberry muffins but I ran out of steam... and butter.
