Sweeping the nation

As you probably know, multicolored cupcakes and cupcakes in a cone have SWEPT I MEAN SWEPT the nation.  It’s all I see on pinterest (  pinterest.com  )  (not literally)!  So I’m going to ask you guys to answer this poll and comment down below for some ideas.  Poll=poll and comment=new idea that should sweep the nation (giver of idea will receive full credit if I try the recipe!) 

Let me put up the poll in a 2nd post.

Not sweet!

Yummy!  Ranch oven fries!

 

You will need:

Chopping board

Knife

Bowl

Scrubber

Ingredients:

5-7 small-medium red potatoes

3 tablespoons olive oil

Salt

Pepper

Hidden Valley Ranch dressing mix and flavor packet

 

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 400 Fahrenheit.  Take your potatoes and scrub them under the kitchen faucet with cold water.  Dry.  Chop them into french fry or potato wedge shapes.  Put them all in a bowl and put in olive oil, salt, pepper, and the Ranch  dressing packet.  Use your hands to mix it all together.  Put the potatoes on a cookie sheet  and bake in the oven for about 20 minutes, or until goldenish.

Dis hangout id da bomb diggidy!  Ha.  Ha.

Great donuts and stuff!  Ooooooh the plain glazed, probably the best donut EVER!!!  (By the way, cash only!!!)

I loved the chocolate chocolate glazed cake donut, Bavarian cream, blueberry cake donut, the plain glazed (MY ABSOLUTE FAVE!!), and they had this thing called the “Maryann”.  It is basically a hi-hat cupcake (   http://www.bakerella.com/hi-hat-cupcakes/   ), they called it a Hostess Ding-Dong on crack or steroids.

Speaking of HOSTESS, which shut down a little while ago,  my dad told me it is supposed to be up and running again in, like, August!!!  HOSTESS FANS GET UP AND THROW YOURSELF A LITTLE PARTAAAAY!!!  Yeaaaaah!!!!  By the way, I don’t know all the details.  Try GOOGLING it.

Foolproof!!!

Here is my foolproof chocolate chip cookie recipe that I use every time!  You don’t have to use only chocolate chips!  It can be basically anything!  Also, I do not use the walnuts!

  • 1 cup butter, softened

  • 1 cup white sugar

  • 1 cup packed brown sugar

  • 2 eggs

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 2 teaspoons hot water

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

  • 1 cup chopped walnuts

 

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Cream together the butter, white sugar, and brown sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Dissolve baking soda in hot water. Add to batter along with salt. Stir in flour, chocolate chips, and nuts. Drop by large spoonfuls onto ungreased pans.
  3. Bake for about 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until edges are nicely browned.

My party

I tend to like to plan my party early.  My birthday is in August.  I like to choose my theme so I can get the details worked out earlier so I don’t have to rush to put together my party at the last minute.  I can’t decide right now!  You can help me choose in the poll below!

Thanks!
