Cherry Almond Princess Cakes
  It's super easy, and delicious.  Good for a little treat in a lunch.

Cherry Almond Princess Cakes

1 box yellow cake mix
2 eggs
1 can cherry pie filling (regular or lite)
1 tsp almond extract (more if desired) 

Preheat oven to 350 F.  Mix all ingredients until well blended and fluffy.  I do about 1 minute on medium in my standmixer.

Scoop into lined mini muffin cups.  Bake for about 10-12 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Cool on wire racks.  These freeze well.  They are very moist and, in my opinion, do not need frosting.

I can't remember where I got this recipe but it's really good!

This “Powerball” recipe makes about 40 snack balls, and leftovers can be kept in the fridge
or frozen with wax paper separating the layers.
  1.  Mix 1 cup peanut butter and 1 cup honey until smooth
  2.  Add 3 cups old-fashioned oats and 1/2 cup ground flaxseed
  3.  Add 1 cup chocolate chips and 1 cup nuts and dried fruit (any combintion of peanuts,
sliced almonds, chopped walnuts, chopped pecans, raisins, dried cranberries, chopped dates, etc)
  4.  Roll into ping-pong sized balls and store in fridge or freezer

I am loving... naps

I wish...  that I could be more organized

that the next 4 weeks or so would fly by

I dislike... that Jordan is screeching/screaming to try and get his way

early mornings (Maya just started Kindergarten)

Baby name

Well, I think we have officially named this baby girl.  LOL.  Sienna Renee.  I LOVE IT!  Can't wait for her to be born.  Should be another 4-5 weeks now, since I go early.  So not ready, but physically can't wait.
