šŸŖDoubletree Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

by Freebies4Mom on May 22, 2020 8:04 pm

It takes a pandemic for companies to reveal top-secret recipes like theĀ Doubletree Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe.Ā My mom shared this recipe with me, so now I have to try it. The fact is since I’m staying at home I have more time to try new recipes. If you remember being handed a warm, chocolate chip cookie – then you were probably staying at a Doubletree. I remember eating one when I stayed in Hoboken, New Jersey for work.

Do you have a cookie recipe I should share on my blog? Please share it with us by leaving a comment with a link to the recipe!

šŸ¤PEEPSĀ® Strawberry Pistachio Cupcakes Easter Recipe

by Freebies4Mom on March 31, 2020 4:02 pm

PEEPS Strawberry Pistachio Cupcakes

I made these Strawberry Pistachio Cupcakes as a fun spring treat! I made this treat easy to make by using cake mixes and Wilton decorating supplies. TheĀ PEEPSĀ® look like they want to sit in a nest, so I made a nest with some blue and green edible Easter grass. I’d love for you to Pin It to your Easter or Recipe board! Here’s how I made these cupcakes:

Ingredients
  • Yellow Cake Mix
  • Strawberry Cake Mix
  • Pistachio Instant Pudding (3.4 oz)
  • Water (as needed for 2 boxes of cake mix)
  • Oil (as needed for 2 boxes of cake mix)
  • Eggs (as needed for 2 boxes of cake mix)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray two cupcake pans with no-stick cooking spray with flour.
  2. Follow cake mix directions to prepare Yellow Cake Mix in one bowl and Strawberry Cake Mix in a second bowl.
  3. Pour half of the Yellow Cake Mix into a third bowl.
  4. Beat in the Pistachio Instant Pudding into the third bowl.
  5. Drop spoonfuls of cake batter into the cupcake pans, alternating between the three flavors.
  6. Bake for time indicated on the cake mix directions.
  7. Cool then decorate.

PEEPS Cupcake Decorating Supplies

I used Wilton products to help me decorate my Strawberry Pistachio Cupcakes. I used edible Easter grass for theĀ PEEPSĀ® to nest in. I used a Wilton 1M decorating tip to apply green and pink frosting to my cupcakes. It was my first time to use the Wilton Royal Icing Mix and Wilton Icing Colors and I loved that the icing dries hard and it’s easy to get just the right color using the concentrated gel colors.

My photo below shows how I spooned each of the three cake mixes into the cupcake pan to achieve the marbled cupcake above. Next time I won’t fill the cupcake pan as full with batter because my cupcake tops baked right into each other. I didn’t use baking cups in my Wilton cupcake pan because they release so easily after baking it’s just not needed! But I did put my cupcakes in pink and green baking cups after I baked them so I’d get a pretty contrast to the Wilton Cupcake Wraps that look like white picket fences.

šŸžGreat Everyday Bread Recipe (needs yeast)

by Freebies4Mom on March 17, 2020 2:03 pm

šŸžGreat Everyday Bread RecipeSince I can no longer buy bread at the grocery store, I found an easy Great Everyday Bread recipe that I’m going to try. I don’t have instant or rapid yeast and my local grocery store is sold out but I was able to order some online. I wanted to share it with you in the hopes you have yeast in your pantry so you can start making your own bread too!

šŸžIrish Soda Bread Recipe (needs one egg or applesauce)

by Freebies4Mom on March 16, 2020 2:01 pm

šŸžIrish Soda Bread Recipe (needs one egg)I told my mom I’m waiting to receive the yeast I ordered so I can make bread, and home ec genius that she is she recommended making an Irish Soda Bread recipe since I already have all of the ingredients. Hopefully you do too or I’m guessing you’ll have no problem finding buttermilk at your grocery store. If you don’t have one egg, you should be able to substitute 1/4 cup of applesauce or mashed banana for the egg. I decided to save my eggs (because they are precious right now) and used 1/4 cup of applesauce as an egg substitute.
