Funfetti Sandwich Cookies

While surfing on Pinterest I found Funfetti Sandwich Cookies (the link includes the original blog post and recipe). They looked divine. I mean seriously, who doesn't love rainbow chip?

I gave them a try last night. They have ingredients I have at home (cake mix, oil, milk, vanilla, eggs, icing sugar, margarine) and minimal prep work.

First, the things I didn't like:

  • The batter was really quite running compared to regular cookie batter. This made it hard to get the cookies off the spoon in an orderly fashion.
  • The cookies were hard to get off of the cookie sheet. I found myself smooshing them as I tried to coax them off.
Second, the things I did like:
  • They look scrumptious. My don't look quite as professional as those on the original post, but I have already eaten two and my mouth is watering just looking at them.
  • They taste as good as they look!
  • They are super easy to throw together. I even cheated and used icing from a can to save some time last night. The whole process probably only took 3/4 of an hour (which includes cooking time, but not cooling time).
Third, the things I would change:
  • I have a recipe for homemade Oreos. It is EXACTLY the same except you use a chocolate cake mix and you do not add milk or vanilla. I will cut the milk out next time and see how that affects the consistency of the batter. It seems to me when I make the homemade Oreos you can roll the cookies into balls (which would help to keep all the cookies the same size and shape).
  • I would make a double recipe. This only made 20 cookies. I like to go big or go home when it comes to baking. I bake some to eat, some to freeze and some to give away. This recipe only allowed me to eat some and give some away! And they are so good, I would have liked to have had a few for my freezer (although my waistline is probably thankful for the single batch, because it knows I have NO will power).
If you would like to follow me on Pinterest you can find me HERE.  Have a great weekend!


  1. It doesn't matter how many cookies you make as long as the ones you give away make it to my house.

    Aunty Jes :)

  2. So delicious!! Might need to AVOID this recipe... :s

What I'm wearing

After my Simons' flop, I recently picked up three pairs of jegging capris at Costco. I think they were about $16 each. I got them in grey (above), teal (also above), and white. I absolutely love them and have been wearing them like crazy. My favorite of the two outfits is the bottom one. The jean jacket is Mavi and I HIGHLY recommend it. In fact, I recently bought another. Exact same style, different wash. This jacket was recommended by both Deena and Christy, so you really can't go wrong. The scarf is one I picked up this spring (Gap). I heart orange and teal. Last week I mentioned trying to define my signature look and that bottom one pretty much encapsulates it. . .
And here it is again. LOVE this one too. Cardigan and scarf are recent purchases along with the grey tee (Old Navy). Jeans are old (American Eagle) and shoes are old (Nine West). I can't wait to recreate this one!
These. Jeans. (Gap). I can't get enough of them. I wore them to professional development o…

Calder Update

Has Calder ever gotten into sports the last couple of months!?! Below he is at a Rush lacrosse game with Hugh and his buddy Kohen. Calder has been watching baseball, lacrosse, and now the hockey playoffs like crazy. In fact, he has stopped asking to watch any of his "shows". He just wants to watch sports. Oh. . . and add NASCAR to that list. Our boy loves his cars. I don't think that will ever change!

Here is Calder's funniest shark tooth yet. His permanent tooth pushed through in front of his baby tooth!  It was like this for weeks. No gap toothed grin for this boy! Below is the day it fell out!
Calder is doing so well in school. His teacher speaks of what a great student he is. Hearing her say these things actually makes me wish he used a few more manners and a bit more kindness at home! LOL. But, if he is going to be on his best behavior somewhere, I want it to be when we aren't around. Although it was great to hear about Calder's learning successes at pa…


All of Hugh's hockey buddies call him "Hammy".

Hugh has been calling Calder "Ham" for a long time. I can't even remember when it started.

Calder started calling Boone "Bean" when he first came home from the hospital. That evolved into "Boone Dog", "The Dog", and just simply, "Dog".  Boone is not a fan of nicknames. Often after we use one of his he will say, "I not Da Dog, I just Boone." Hilarious.

Boone has called Lawson "Dawsie" from about month two. (He called her "baby" for the first two months.) Last week Boone called her Lawson for the first time ever. It took a long time for him to put the "L" on Lawson. He would repeat after us "La La La La, Dawsie". He has said "Lawson" twice since the momentous occasion last week, but I think he got too much attention for using it and has moved back to "Dawsie". "Dawsie" likely isn't going any…
