Tips

Canola oil and egg subistitues

Canola oil and egg subistitues

This is a pretty simple thing to do just replace vegetable oil with canola oil and switch out the eggs for the egg substitute like egg beaters and you will have a very nice fluffy cake


Cookie Cupcakes

Cookie Cupcakes

I have recently found that making cookies using a mini cupcake pan is the way to go, the kind with room for 24 mini cupcakes is a GREAT way to make cookies. If you put down a mini cupcake wrapper and just drop the cookie dough in, bake them for about 15 minutes and they are done. You are left with 24 adorable cookies, all the same size, not flat so they never get hard and just adorable to present! You end up with every cookie the same size, and less mess as well!
