Post-Spring Breaks

I'm attending two universities simultaneously this semester which means I didn't have an official Spring Break. My "Spring Break" for each university was one after the other. It's unfortunate because I was really hoping to take a  mini-vacation with my two best friends, N and S. We've been best friends since kindergarten.

Well, here's to another week of school!
Happy Monday everybody!
Have a great week!

Whoopie It's Friday!

In celebration of Friday, I made Whoopie Pies! Would you care to have one? Yum!

1 box of cake mix of your choice (I chose Pillsbury Devil's Food Cake Mix)
2 large eggs
1/4 cup of oil
1/2 cup of milk
1 jar of your favorite frosting
2 cookie pans

How to:
shift the cake mix into a large bowl
pour in beaten eggs
add milk
add oil
mix well with spatula (electric mixer - 4 minutes on medium) - I prefer not to use this because it causes the dough to rise with cracks.
Take a spoon and place spoon fulls onto a cookie sheet with each spooned batter two inches part. Here comes the tricky part, make sure you get these as round as possible. (Makes about 24, 12 pies total depending on how big you make them.)
Bake at 375F for 7-8 minutes
Allow them to cool for 2 minutes
After two minutes start plucking them off the cookie sheet and onto a rack of to cool-dry for 10 minutes
At 11 minutes, start fattening them up!  (Tip- I paired mine together before I added frosting.)

Happy Friday!
Happy Weekend!
