Easy Sopapilla Squares

I have never had these before and saw them made on t.v so decided to try them and they were so yummy but so easy!
All it takes is a cream cheese mixture, 2 cans of crescent rolls, butter and cinnamon and sugar
I only did a half batch so it took one can of rolls, lay half of your rolls in a sprayed pan


Pour your cream cheese mixture over top


Add another layer of roll, brush with butter and sprinkle cinnamon and sugar over the top
Cook and enjoy!


Even better with a side of vanilla ice cream



Sopapilla Squares
Ingredients:
  • · 2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
  • · 1 c. white sugar
  • · 1 t. Mexican vanilla extract (I just used pure vanilla)
  • · 2 cans refrigerated crescent rolls
  • · 1/4 c. melted butter
  • · cinnamon and sugar
Method:
1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9x13 inch baking dish with cooking spray.
2. Beat the cream cheese with 1 cup of sugar and the vanilla extract in a bowl until smooth.
3. Unroll the cans of crescent roll dough, and use a rolling pin to shape each piece into 9x13 inch rectangles. Press one piece into the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish. Evenly spread the cream cheese mixture into the baking dish, then cover with the remaining piece of crescent dough. Pour melted butter over the top and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar.
Bake about 30 minutes, or until the crescent dough has puffed and turned golden brown. Cool completely in the pan before cutting. up a bit.

EASTER!


Not gonna lie I put this easter decoration up probably a month ago! I was just too excited that I couldn't keep it hidden for much longer... so all of us girls in my family had a little craft night, we bought some block letters and spent all night decorating while my husband did a gun class.
 my favorite is the cute little chick, the great thing about this is you can decorate and personalize it to any style you want. I personally love pastels for easter and lots of glitter!
For the dots on the letter 'E' I dipped a hershey kiss in modge podge, and it made the perfect circle and then I sprinkled glitter on it. It was such a fun prodject! So everyone gather a girls night and get crafting!

KitchenAid make over

One of my most favorite things to have in my kitchen is my kitchen aid
I love this thing it is over 20 years old and its still chugging along. But at 20 years old it was white and looking a little drab so I decided to freshen it up a bit.


 I followed this tutorial here at You Craft Me Up 
you basically strip your aid down (remove removable parts) and tape the parts you don't want painted
Spray with appliance paint
 
I did 2 coats and it looks wonderful!

Then for the subway art I grabbed this free download here 
Using my silhouette I traced it (best to use low pass filter) and cut it out in white vinyl 
That one was a little tough because some of the fonts were so small they almost smudged so I would just lower the cutting pressure a little.

So that's that, but a kitchen aid make over led to a ENTIRE KITCHEN make over
 More to come soon!

Favorite pan coating

Have you ever had a hard time getting your cakes out of the pan? I have tried everything from parchment to shortening and flour and I still cringe every time I get ready to take them out. Until.... I tried this.
My new found favorite thing,
It is a DIY bakers joy.
The recipe is simple equal parts flour, shortening, and vegetable oil.
I used 1/2 cup of each and it made a fairly good size batch.
The directions are simple, mix your ingredients until smooth, it will seem a little on the runnier side but that is good.
 I just used my small hand mixer and it worked great.
Store in a air tight container in you cupboard (do not refrigerate) 
When you need to use it, grab a pastry brush and brush it into your pan, the bottom and up the sides.
I just put my pastry brush in a zip lock bag and throw it in the freezer so I don't have to wash it each time I can just pull it out when I need it.

Let your cake cool in the pan 10-15 minutes and it should come right out
You might have to run a knife around the sides but that's about it.
I have only used this a handful of times but so far it has been the best thing I have ever tried.
Happy baking!

Some of my favorites

Hello out there this is Lyndee, I know it's been a while but this is the week to CELEBRATE! And why are we celebrating this week you ask? Because my birthday is next week! Now you have to understand birthdays are a very big deal to me, I don't just celebrate that day, I spend the whole month celebrating. Birthdays are one of my favorite things. 
On that note I decided to post a few of my favorite things to do even if it's just to tell you a little bit about myself.
I love to do everything, really I do, but I have narrowed it down to my 3 favorite hobbies.

I most favorite thing to do in the entire world is to take pictures. Photography will forever be my first love. 
I have had a camera as long as I can remember. 
This was one of my favorite jobs I did
They were taken a while ago but are some of my favorites.

My next thing is cake decorating, I love to bake and play in my kitchen. I took some classes to start but I am now going to school in the culinary arts to learn the in's and out's of cake structure.

I LOVE to cook. Like I said I am in a culinary arts program and it has been one of the coolest things to do. It is pretty difficult at times but I have learned so much.
This is from Halloween ( I was the progresso soup lady) and the only picture I have of my actual uniform that I wear to school every day.
So there you have it, a little bit about me.
Stay tuned for more favorites (did I mention my birthday is coming up?!) haha 
There will be much more soon!
