Today I made some really good blondies. They are called Butterscotch Blondies, but there is no butterscotch in them!
I haven’t posted for a while because school and lacrosse take up most of my time, but I will have more time to write when lacrosse ends. 7th Grade is pretty easy so far. I’ve had many essays and projects, but I have gotten them all done without any problems. I love making PowerPoints in class. PowerPoints are really easy to make and they can contain large amounts of data and facts. School has been very easy for me this year.
The Butterscotch Blondies taste like butterscotch because of the browned butter. Browning butter means to just heat the butter longer on the stove than normal until it turns brown. Browned butter has a sort of nutty flavor and smells amazing. This was my first experience with browned butter! Read more…

Tomorrow is Halloween! For the occasion I made Candy Corn Cookies! They are really cool because they have big orange and yellow swirls on top and bottom. They were actually pretty hard to make, but I managed to finish the cookies and make them perfectly! The recipe comes from a new book that we just got: The Big Book of Cookies by Betty Crocker
Now that’s what I call a full stack! You get the little short stacks of pancakes at restaurants but this is the real deal!
I made these with my friend. We had a ton of fun with this recipe! Another thing that made these cookies hard for us was that football was on… so we had to keep peeking at the scores once in a while.
It was really hard to roll the dough into rectangles because the dough kept sticking to the rolling pin! Eventually, I got each section of dough rolled up into a log. Then you need to stick it in a fridge after you make the log. Waiting is soooooo boring! Finally I got to cut the cookies from the log and stick them in the oven. Yay! Mission accomplished.
These are the logs that you cut the cookies from. Swirls! Read more…

It’s almost Halloween! Now everyone knows that pumpkins are a big part of Halloween, so I decided to add a pumpkin flair to some original waffles. Sooooo… I made Pumpkin Waffles! Now with waffles, you have to add some yummy stuff… so you can guess what I did!
Syrup was the first necessity on these waffles! With most waffles, they seem a little dry. Although these waffles were a little dry, they still tasted like pumpkin! These waffles were pumpkinlicious!
My Mom just got a KitchenAid Waffle Baker, so I wanted to be the first one to use it! It is really cool. You can cook two waffles at a time, and there is even a timer to let you know when each waffle is done! THANK YOU KITCHENAID!!! Read more…
