Hi, Everybody. My name is R E I D. I am Cheri’s 8-year old grandson and I will be your guest blogger today. (My sister got to do this last week and Cheri wanted to give me a turn, too…she’s nice that way!)
Girls aren’t the only ones who can cook. My daddy is a great cook and I like to do it sometimes too. My favorite part is cracking eggs. Today I am making Pumpkin Snack Bars. (I’m not sure if I’m going to like it....I’ve never eaten pumpkin before. I wonder if it’s as good as peanut butter and jelly?)
The mixer is fun too….v a r o o m!!!
Don’t you sit on the counter when you cook?
Hmmm....looks a little like MUD to me....
I think I’ll play a few computer games while it’s baking…….
Cheri said I could grow up to be a CHEF…but I don’t think so. I like cooking with Cheri….but I’d much rather be doing this….
It’s ready!!! Yummy frosting on top. I wanted to put a jack-o-lantern face on it but Cheri said it wasn’t HALLOWEEN!
Come visit us and I’ll give you a piece.
Here’s the recipe:
PUMPKIN SNACK BARS
1 (15 oz.) can pumpkin
1 pkg. spice cake mix
1 cup Miracle Whip dressing
2 Tbsp. milk
Frosting: 3 ½ cups powdered sugar
1 stick butter or margarine, softened
1 tsp. vanilla
Blend cake mix, pumpkin, salad dressing, & eggs with mixer on medium speed until well blended. Pour into greased 13x9” baking pan. Bake @ 350 for 32-35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool completely (in pan) on wire rack.
Frosting: blend butter, powdered sugar, milk, & vanilla with mixer on low speed until moistened. Beat on high until light & fluffy. Spread over cooled cake.
Note: you can add 8 oz. cream cheese to frosting & keep refrigerated until serving time.
