Easiest. Recipe. Ever.

So I am going to assume everyone has cravings for pumpkin during the fall season like I do.  As soon as it starts getting cold I just want to drink hot chocolate and bake muffins, bread, and cookies.Anyways, on Sunday we were going to celebrate my dad's birthday as a family.  I wanted to make him some kind of dessert he would enjoy and would be mostly healthy.  I found this recipe and tweaked it.  The result: delicious, cake like cookies.  I made some with and without chocolate chips.  You'll have to try it and let me know what you think.

Pumpkin Cookies/Muffins:*
*You can use this recipe for cookies or muffins. Depends on what you're in the mood for.
  • 1 box of spice cake mix
  • 15 oz of canned pumpkin
  • 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon (Or you can use a 1/2 tsp. of pumpkin pie spice instead of the nutmeg and cinnamon)
  • Chocolate Chips (Optional)
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Open and empty the contents of the cake mix and can of pumpkin.
  3. Mix it together until there are no clumps of cake mix.
  4. Add the cinnamon, nutmeg, and chocolate chips.
  5. Grease muffin tins or cookie sheets.  Since there is no oil in the batter it's important that you don't forget this step.  
  6. Bake cookies for 9-12 minutes depending on the oven and your pan.  Bake muffins for 12-15 minutes depending on the above things as well.
  7. Once cooked to texture you desire, remove and let them cool completely before storing them.
  8. Eat as many as you want.
Below are some pictures of how my cookies turned out. Please keep in mind that I am not a food photographer. My pictures does this recipe no justice. It's delicious and moist. My dad loved. In fact, the whole family loved them.  They were gone in a day. Hope you enjoy!


  1. They sound so yummy! I've been gathering recipes from cookbooks and putting them in a notebook with other favorite recipes. I'm going to have to add this too!

    (by the way, did you ever get that headband we sent you?)

  2. Those look great. I'll have to steal this one!

It's a good reminder to not only seek Him this time of year but throughou…

Hazel's Birth Story

Warning: This is long and is written in detail as it's meant to be my record of her birth. 
Well it's been a long time since I've blogged. Life gets busy and it's hard to keep up. However, I found myself wanting to record the details of Hazel's birth story. She's already 4.5 months old and I am finding that I am starting to forget small things. I want to write them all down before I forget. So here I am, sharing our story, so that I can remember and share it with her someday.

Hazel Anne Power joined our family on September 3, 2017 at 8:40 pm weighing 7 lbs 5 oz and 19.5 inches long. She is my smallest baby. She's 6 oz less than Brooklyn and 1 inch shorter. She is just darling and we are so glad she's a part of our family. 
So I guess I'll start at the beginning. I found out I was pregnant right after Christmas time and was able to share the news with my family that was in town for the holidays. We return home from our trip and I start back up playin…

Big News!

So this is big news for the Power family. I know many of you know a million other people who are currently pregnant but before you roll your eyes and skip over this post completely (ha), read on and hear a little bit about our story.
I am currently 20 weeks pregnant. We just found out yesterday that we are expecting a baby girl. She is due to enter this world on January 3, 2012. So far she is healthy and growing strong. She is growing about a week ahead of schedule. Maybe she'll come before the end of the year. Derek and I will celebrate our 3rd anniversary on the 16th of not too long after our sweet girl is born.
A little about us:
Derek: One of the things I love most about Derek is how patiently he accepts trials in his life. He always has such a good atitude about what life has handed him. When he was 11 or 12 he was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. Then at age 19 he was diagnosed with Lymphoma Cancer.  He has now been in remission for 5 years. We are tr…
