A Southern girl is a girl who knows full and well that she can open a door for herself but prefers for the gentleman to do it because it demonstrates a sense of respect. After all, every girl wants to be treated like a princess. She knows how to make sweet tea and grits while telling you everything about any football team in the SEC. She picks her battles and fights with the heart of a pit-bull while still maintaining grace and elegance. Her mystique is that of a soft-spoken, mild-mannered southern belle who could direct an army, loves her momma, and will always be daddy's little girl.

A New {baking} Recipe

Well I hate to admit it but I am that girl that bakes for everybody at work.... I just love baking and I certainly don't need the baked goods sitting around in my house! Last week was one of my manager's birthday so I decided to do something different and make Funfetti Cookies! I had never made these before, I typically make the cake but since they were going to be at sitting at work for everyone to eat, cookies would be more convenient.

First: mix 1/3 cup oil and 2 eggs with the cake mix. Then scoop dough in to balls and place them 2 inches apart on the ungreased baking sheet.

Next: Wet the bottom of a cup with water and coat in flour. Press the cookies down to about 1/2 inch high. After all of the cookies have been flattened, cook them on 350 degrees for about 8- 10 minutes, or until golden brown.

When the cookies are finished, let them cool on the rack for 2 minutes and quickly ice them. I decorated with some bright and colorful sprinkles. He was very surprised with this special birthday treat. Everyone surely enjoyed them. I can't wait to make them again because I only got one!

What are some of you favorite things to bake? I would love to try something new!


  1. So cute! My mom use to make these every so often when I lived at home.

  2. Looks delicious! I love funfetti cake, so I'll have to try the cookies!
