home cooking

Some of you may have known by now that I “sometimes” love to cook, so here’s a few of them. Some are easy and quick to do, the one I love most is the pan-grilled fish fillet, it’s so so easy with a very simple taste. 🙂 And just leave a message if you want to know how, I’m just too lazy to write all the steps here today. If you click or just hover your cursor on the photos, you’ll see the name for each one. Today’s coffee: at home again with a lightly roasted Pumpkin spice – sweet & spiced with a hint of cinnamon and nutmeg. I don’t think it went well with my choice of pancakes.

Stir in whipped topping. COVER bottom (flat) side of each 20 cookies with about 2 tbsp. of the cream cheese mixture; top each with second cookie, bottom side down, to form a sandwich. Dip half of each sandwich in sprinkles and gently shake of excess. Place in single layer in an airtight container. FREEZE for 3 hours or until firm. And store leftover in freezer. Kids will love this for sure.
