Do you every have a recipe in mind skim read it, buy the ingredients, then come to find out the recipe makes a much smaller serving than what you needed therefore you do not have enough ingredients? Well this happened to me when I wanted to make these Cake Bater Blondies, which calls for an 11×7 pan. I needed a minimum of a 9 x 13 pan, I was baking for hungry hockey players after all. So off to the internet I go in search of something, but I did not have to look far. Just searching around Sally Baking Addition I found this recipe, Candy Bar Blondies .
I knew I could easily double it and instead of the addition of the candy bars I substituted the sprinkles and white chocolate chips from the recipe I wanted to originally make. They were a great hit for the boys!

Love those dress up days for my elementary kiddos, especially Dr. Seuss birthday. Our elementary school goes all out, the kids and staff dress up, decorating the halls, and of course reading the fun silly Dr. Seuss books . Of course for me it turns into a DIY project with the kids, searching the house for what we have before we head to the store. The kids decided on their own what characters they would like to be. My second grade girl has been Cindy LooHoo and Daisy Head Maisy, this year she settled on Sally Sue from Cat in the Hat. My youngest who is in Kindergarten has seen this big sister costumes the last two years so I was super excited when he wanted to partake. At first discussion we thought they would be a couple and he could go as the boy from Cat in the Hat, but he decided on his own to be Sam I am from Green Eggs and Ham
The only out-of-pocket expense for us was the blue tank top for Sally’s dress, 3.89 at Wal-Mart. Otherwise all else was used from old t-shirts and fabric scraps from my craft stash. I used several site to pull it all together.
