  1. Happy New Year! And here's my disclaimer for this recipe... if your resolution for the New Year is to lose weight, this isn't the recipe to try.. haha! But, if you're going to put it off for one more day​, then this is a good recipe to give a go. Now, I don't normally buy cake mixes, but I do most of my shopping at the bent and dent shops, and frequently I'll come across the good quality cake mixes from 25 to 50 cents a box. I'll pick up several just to have them around for those times you want something sweet quick... and even for cakes, I love to throw my own twists into them to make them my own. But this morning I wanted to add a little sweet start to 2017, and so I opened the cabinet to find a box of moist devil's food cake mix. Hm... yep, that's sweet, and who can go wrong with chocolate? So now I need oil and maybe an egg, so why not use some real mayo like I did in the two ingredient cookies? I did... 1/3 cup of mayo and to that I put in one cup of 2% milk because that's what I had. In the same cabinet, for whatever reason, I had a partial bag of chocolate chips. Hey, can there be too much chocolate in life? Let me repeat... 1 cake mix 1/2 cup real mayo 1 cup milk Any additions (chocolate chips, nuts, fruit, whatever floats your boat) I stirred that together well and put a cup onto my sprayed and heated waffle iron. (This could also be made into pancakes if you add a bit more milk for a thinner batter.) Then I waited while the fragrance of warm chocolate filled the kitchen, and pounced on it as soon as it indicated it was ready. Oh my word... warm chocolate pancake with melty, gooey chocolate chips... no syrup required! Though I do imagine that chocolate syrup or whipped cream might bump up the sugar factor even more. And just as an FYI... these DO work with the sugar free cake mixes, if you're watching your sugar consumption. HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
  2. Yes, please do! I'd love to hear how it turns, though I have to agree that despite how good MW is on a sandwich, it doesn't sound remotely good in a cake. Actually, I'll admit what gave me the idea to use the mayo is because it's one of my ingredients in my special dark chocolate cake that just melts in your mouth... which, by the way, can be made with no sugar. I'll have to post that recipe one day just for you!
  3. Hi there, You can always give it a go with Miracle Whip, but I can't promise the results since I didn't use it as my ingredient. I only post those recipes that I've tried myself, but I'd love to hear how it works out for you. The reason I used mayo was that the primary ingredients are egg and oil; the same thing called on the cake mix. The ingredients I'm seeing for MW are "The primary ingredients are water, soybean oil, vinegar, high fructose corn syrup, sugar, modified corn starch, and dried eggs. The HFCS and corn starch are made from non-genetically modified maize.[7] Ingredients making up less than 2% of product include salt, mustard flour, paprika, spice, natural flavor, potassium sorbate, enzyme modified egg yolk, and dried garlic." Let me know how it works out if you try it!
  4. I haven't, but it sounds really good and convenient! Both which are attractive to me. Thanks for sharing. And don't be afraid to try the cookie recipe... I promise it's good. So much so that I'm going to have to hide them before my husband eats them all before dark. haha!
  5. ​It's me again... ​Now let's say we have a craving for cookies, like I did earlier. And you don't want to go through some big production to make them... you just want cookies. ​Well, take a look in the pantry and refrigerator. If you have a boxed cake mix and real mayonnaise (not Miracle Whip), you're on your way to simple and delicious cookies. ​For mine I used what I had... a lemon cake mix and one cup of mayo stirred together well. That's it. Then I used a small ice cream scoop, but a spoon would work fine, to lay out a dozen onto an ungreased baking sheet. The oven was preheated to 350° and they were baked for 15 minutes. Take out of the oven, cool on the sheet and then transfer to a cooling rack... or a clean towel... or your plate with a big glass of milk on the side. My scoop made 2 dozen cookies from this batch. ​Eat up! Lockie "Some hae meat and cannae eat. Some nae meat but want it. We hae meat and we can eat and sae the Lord be thankit." Old Scottish blessing

  7. I hopes she loves it! After the holidays, I know for certain that I need more vegetables. Lockie
  8. The last recipe I posted was a two ingredient dessert, so let's switch gears this time with a two ingredient side dish. This one is very easy and easily customized. For starters, use 3 1/2 cups broccoli and boil, steam, roast or grill it; however you like your broccoli best. Then choose your favorite hummus... I like either garlic or spicy, but this is what your taste buds prefer. Now toss the warm florets in with the hummus which will coat the broccoli like a sauce and either eat warm or chill it for later. Actually, I like raw broccoli, so if you want it super simple, you don't have to cook at all. Ha ha. Now that you've tried it with broccoli, experiment with hummus as a "sauce" or spread with other vegetables or even breads. SKP hugs, Lockie "Some hae meat and cannae eat. Some nae meat but want it.

  9. Oh my gracious, Linda! How great does that sound? Yes, I think the only limit is our imaginations. Hi, Carolaow! You're welcome and that's what I was looking for... something good and simple that doesn't take a commercial kitchen to make. And that fit the bill. Now I may have to hide it or my youngest is going to eat it all before lunch. I haven't tried it (yet) with chocolate frosting, but I think that will be my next experiment because I love the peanut butter/chocolate combination. If you try it first, please let me know how it goes!
  10. Hey Linda! I haven't tried it with any of the other butters, but now you have me thinking of all the other possibilities too because I don't know why it wouldn't work. Got me to thinking of using almond butter with a sprinkling of coconut on top. Mmm mmm! If you try any of the other butters before I do, let me know how it turns out! And your question has made me wonder how it would taste with chocolate frosting instead of white... oh my, the possibilities!
  11. Are you looking for a super easy, last minute dessert or gift that only takes two ingredients to make? And to make it even more appealing, it can be made in a couple of minutes in the microwave. All you need is 16 oz. of peanut butter (creamy or crunchy, depending on your preference) and a 16 oz. can of white frosting (not the whipped kind). Put both ingredients into a microwave safe container and microwave for one minute, stir, then microwave again for one minute. Depending on the strength of your microwave, it only takes two or three minutes until it is creamy and mixed completely. Then pour into a casserole dish (8x8 or 9x11 are fine) that has been lightly sprayed with cooking spray or buttered, if you prefer. Now on top of mine I sprinkled just a handful of chocolate chips, but you could use crushed candy canes, nuts, or leave it plain. Then chill it in the refrigerator for a couple of hours and slice. There you go... ready for gifting or enjoying yourself! Have a wonderful holiday season! Hugs, Lockie
