Easy Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars!

I am always on the look out for good deals at the grocery. Well I came upon the Manager's Special aisle and found a few cake mixes on sale for $.79 each because the boxes were bent.

I bought like 7 mixes! However, the Hubby doesn't like cake. He will eat it if we are at a birthday party or a wedding, but he will never request it. For his birthday I will either make cookies or brownies, because he doesn't want cake.


I decided something needed to be done with some of these mixes! I decided to search Pinterest for ideas. I stumbled across people using cake mixes to make cookies! SCORE!

These are super easy to throw together for an easy after dinner desert!



Cake-Mix Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

1 Yellow or White Cake Mix
2 eggs
5 T butter, melted
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups of chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9 x 13 in pan. Mix all ingredients together, then add in chips and mix, spread into the pan and bake for 20-25 minutes. Let bars cool slightly before cutting into squares.

You could adjust this mix to your family's likes or dislikes. You could add butterscotch chips, white chocolate, peanut butter or anything really!

The Hubby said he liked them too!

I hope you enjoy!


Until next time,

Kara

Date Night Jar

The Hubby and I have been together 8 years. The one thing we have consistently argued over for those 8 years is the question, "What do you want to do?"

I consider us to both be intelligent adults, but when that question comes out of the other persons mouth its like we become fools and have no thoughts.

Our common answer is "I don't know" or "I don't care". 

Well I found something to fix that problem. Our date night jar!


I saw the idea on Pinterest (where all ideas live of course) and decided it was an inexpensive, crafty solution to our problem.

All you need are Popsicle sticks, markers, a jar, and your list of activities you want to use.

Both the Hubby and I brainstormed ideas in the categories of free dates, cheap dates, more expensive dates, and plan ahead dates.

Here is our example list:



Making the list was the hardest part. There are a lot of online links for date ideas. Just cater your list to your tastes and preferences!

This doesn't really requ…

Songs I am Obsessed With Right Now

Maybe I am the only person, but when I hear a song I like on the radio I kind of get obsessed with it. I just want it to come on all the time! Or I go home and YouTube it over and over!

Here are a few of the songs I love right now!

This song by the Chainsmokers is awesome. It has such a great beat and it's always on the radio right now!



Dan and Shay are a great country duo, but From the Ground Up is such a beautiful song. I absolutely love it.

Florida Georgia Line has never put out a bad song. It took me a few times for me to get into this one, but I really like the song. It's another I love to sing when it comes across the radio (which is quite a bit).

I hope you enjoy your day! 

Until next time,

Kara

Mixed Feelings for Sure...

I am not one to post much about politic things. I think it's best just to keep my mouth shut about how I feel about politics, because it just starts arguments between friends.

Well Donald Trump will be our 45th president. I have so many mixed emotions about this...

I am scared for the possibilities that he brings with no experience. I am scared that the people who got out and voted were fueled by hate, not change. That they were scared because they are getting left behind by technology, scared because people with education are bypassing them for more opportunities, that social norms are changing and it's not acceptable to them.

I am scared that people think it's okay for Donald to have mocked a disabled reporter, to have said demeaning things about women and it be okay, to be openly hateful to people of other cultures and that being considered American pride.

I want a world for my daughter to be kind, accepting, understanding. We are not all the same, we have different opportu…
