A new name needed

I need a new name for this little blog. You see, Haley doesn't cook all that often. MJ made us some chili yesterday. It was delicious as usual, and we have enough for leftovers tonight!

With all the snow here (another 8-10 inches), we were trapped in the house all day. There is no preschool for the rest of the week, and no school Monday, due to Presidents Day. So we are all home until Tuesday. Send help soon!

The girls and I are going make some cookies to share with our neighbors today. They were kind enough to help MJ shovel out this morning. We have awesome neighbors!

We are going to make Fudge Crinkles! They are so easy, even a five year old can do it. Here is the recipe:

Fudge Crinkles
1 box devil's food cake mix
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 large eggs
confectioners sugar, for rolling

Heat oven to 350. Stir cake mix, oil, and eggs together by hand. Roll into 1 inch balls. Roll balls into sugar. Bake for 8-10 minutes. (Use Betty Crocker Super Moist Devil's Food Cake if you have a choice. I made two batches, one with Betty and one with Pillsbury, and Betty's Crinkles were much better. If you do use the other ones, try adding just a bit more oil. They just didn't spread out as pretty. Both taste fine.)

So I changed the name of the blog from "Haley Cooks" to "Haley and Girls". This fits a little better. I may change it twenty more times or I may give up on this writing thing all together.

*Notice to those who try these with children* Five year olds can keep the little balls in perfect shape while rolling in sugar. Two year olds can't!
