Carrot Cake Mix Cookies - My Cooking Spot-3

Hey y’all! Stephanie from Sustaining the Powers here again. I have a quick holiday treat go-to recipe to share with you today – Carrot Cake Mix Cookies. I don’t know about you, but in my family, Carrot Cake is eaten year round, not just at Easter. We especially love it around Halloween and Thanksgiving because of its mix of fall spices and its fun streaks of orange color from the carrots.

This Orange Pina Colada Spritzer is a little bit like that. Borne from a craving for something I’d never heard of but desperately wanted when the name popped into my head. [Read more…]

Simplified Strawberry Shortcake

simple and quick strawberry shortcake dessert

In these last few days of summer I have been craving fresh fruit! My husband and I love to indulge in a little sweet each night but have had lots of discussions about our health and not wanting to consume Sonic ice cream multiple times a week 😉

This fresh and simple dessert came to mind one night when I was craving something sweet but didn’t want to spend more money at the store! Because who is going to spend the time making shortcake when you could just sub already made biscuits and get just as good of a dessert? Not this girl.
