Recipes & More! – #TastyTuesday
I wanted to start doing something about recipes here at TigerStrypes blog. I see so many others having some great things on theirs, and figured it would be fun to share different ones here at TigerStrypes Blog. I love finding new ideas on Pinterest, or other social media and actually making something yummy for my family.
I always hear of families having Taco Tuesday or Meatloaf Monday, and sorry, that’s just not for me. There are a few recipes that I use that are saved in my special recipe file, and I’ll make those a little more often than others. I just want to offer my husband and our son different choices. I don’t want us to get bored with the same thing and the same flavors. Now don’t get me wrong, when things are on sale at the grocery store, I’ll be figuring out all different things to make with that. I’ve heard the “Oh Mom, Chicken Again?” drama line from DJ, but hey, if you don’t want to eat, then see ya!! Like the sign says in my kitchen…”You have 2 choices for dinner…Take it or Leave it!”. Pick one! 🙂
So with this “Recipes & More! – #TastyTuesday” weekly blog post, what I decided to start with is making something you see on a dessert box mix. How many times do you buy a cake mix or a bag of mix for cookies, and always see that recipe on the side, but never make it? I figured it would be fun to go through my pantry and use the ones I had and make something from what it shows. I saw that some of the mixes I had didn’t have a recipe on them, so for those, I’ll be heading to the manufacturer’s website to find one for the mix, if applicable, and sharing that. These posts won’t always be for desserts…but I wanted to start with that.
“Nutty Carrot Cookies”
Using Betty Crocker Cake Mix
- 1 box Betty Crocker™ SuperMoist™ carrot cake mix
- 1/3 C all-purpose flour
- 2/3 C butter, melted
- 2 eggs
- 1 C walnuts, chopped
- Heat the oven to 350° F (325° F for any dark or non-stick style of pan). Beat the cake mix in a large bowl with the flour, butter and eggs, until combined. Stir in the nuts and mix those in.
- Roll out some parchment paper on the cookie sheets you are going to be using. Drop dough about teaspoonful size, 2″ apart on the sheet.[url href=”https://tigerstrypes.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/20150112_144536-169×300.jpg”][img src=”https://tigerstrypes.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/20150112_144536-169×300.jpg” width=”169″ height=”300″ class=”aligncenter size-medium” title=”20150112_144536″][/url]
- Dip a small scoop in water to help the dough not to stick when setting them on the sheet.[url href=”https://tigerstrypes.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/20150112_144009-169×300.jpg”][img src=”https://tigerstrypes.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/20150112_144009-169×300.jpg” width=”169″ height=”300″ class=”aligncenter size-medium” title=”20150112_144009″][/url]
- Bake the cookies for 10-15 minutes, until the edges are set.[url href=”https://tigerstrypes.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/20150112_144917-300×169.jpg”][img src=”https://tigerstrypes.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/20150112_144917-300×169.jpg” width=”300″ height=”169″ class=”aligncenter size-medium” title=”20150112_144917″][/url]
- Remove the cookies from the oven and set on cooling racks to finish cooling, about 10 minutes.

What do you think? Does this look like something you would make. I loved that my son ate them and then asked what they were. If I told him Carrot Cookies, he would flip out. I just said, “do they taste good?”, and he said, “Yeah, can I have another?” That’s all I needed!! He doesn’t need to know anything else. Wink…Wink….
I would really appreciate it, if the wonderful readers of my blog would be sure and share this post, as well as use the InLinkz tool below to add your own recipe post. Let’s use this as a way to share our great ideas, and help build support for each others blogs!! Thank you for stopping by and have a blessed day!
