I found these pictures just now and thought they are too cute not to post. This was a few months ago, Jared was just playing around with his camera.

Since I have been a stay at home mom I discovered I love to bake! I am not that great, but it is fun and it is relaxing to me. I like to put my own little twist on recipes just to spruce them up a bit. Also, it is all easy stuff to do. I wanted to share two of my recent foods I have made that turned out super yummy. A couple days ago I was craving muffins, so I pulled out a strawberry muffin mix out of pantry. I thought it would be fun to add some white chocolate chips in the mix to add some more flavor. Then I thought, hey why not melt some white chocolate chips and drizzle that on top of the muffins when they are finished baking. These muffins turned out delicious! I know they aren't the most healthy, but its ok to splurge every once in a while, right? The other twist I did was to pancakes. I tried two different things on these. I used just a regular mix and then added shredded apple and chopped almond. The second time I made them I added mushed bananas instead of the apple. There are supper delicious and actually pretty healthy. If you want them even more healthy, use a whole wheat pancake mix. Anyways, I thought I would share some of my silly little twist in baking.
