We have a lot happening at the same time. We celebrated the birthdays of my cousin (Uncle's daughter), my aunt (they came down for the funeral), my sister (the one closest in age to me) and my anniversary and another cousin's birthday (grandson of Uncle). My girls also started spring break the same weekend. So glad we are homeschooling. The weather has been a cross between cold and wet and cold and sunny and then one hot and sunny. They could work on school work on the rainy, stormy days and then when the weather is nice we can take the day off and play outside or go somewhere.
Just with so much happening, I have fallen behind on moving things from my FB page to here, so it is time to catch up. Sorry if this becomes really long, but I saved a lot.

Instead of grated Potatoes Try grated Zucchini…
2 Cups Zucchini, grated
1 Onion, chopped fine
4 Egg Whites
1/2 cup Whole Wheat Bread crumbs
1 tbsp Italian Seasoning or seasoning like basil, oregano, rosemary, thyme
2 tsp Garlic Powder
Sea Salt & Pepper to taste
1. Preheat oven to 400F.
2. Grease a muffin tin with Oil
3. Grate the Zucchini
4. put in a towel to squeeze out the excess water. **This will keep your Bites from being Soggy. You want them crisp like hash browns… grated potatoes.
5. In a bowl combine Zucchini, Onion, Egg whites, Bread Crumbs, Seasonings
6. Using a spoon, fill muffin cups to the top and bake for 18-25 minutes or until the top is browned.
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
2 sticks butter, softened
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar...
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 Tbsp cinnamon & 2 Tbsp sugar combined
1 1/4 cup powdered sugar
3 Tbsp milk
1/2 tsp vanilla
In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter until fluffy. Mix in the sugars and continue creaming. Scrape the bowl and add the eggs and vanilla. Beat for 1-2 minutes. On low speed slowly mix in the flour and baking powder. Spread half of the batter in the bottom of a greased 9x13 pan. Sprinkle the cinnamon/sugar mixture over the batter. Take a small spoon and drop the remaining batter evenly over the cinnamon sugar. Bake at 350 for 25 minutes. Cool completely. Whisk together the powdered sugar, milk and vanilla for the glaze. Drizzle over the bars
1 box butter-recipe cake mix
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted...
1 8 oz. package cream cheese, softened
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1 16 oz. box powdered sugar
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
1 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Light grease a 9 x 13 in. baking pan. In a bowl, combine cake mix, egg, and butter with an electric mixer. Mix well. Pat into the bottom of prepared pan and set aside. Still using an electric mixer, beat cream cheese until smooth; add eggs and vanilla. Dump powdered sugar and beat very well. Reduce the speed of mixer and slowly pour in melted butter.
Mix well. Stir in the chocolate chips. Pour filling onto cake mixture and spread evenly. Bake for 40-50 minutes (it took me closer to 50 minutes). You want to center to be a little gooey, so don't bake it past that point! Remove from oven and allow to cool completely. If you want to drizzle melted chocolate over the top allow it to cool for at least 15 minutes and then drizzle over. Allow to cool for at least another hour and then cut into bars
