White Chocolate Cookie bar recipe

Last month we got snowed in here in North Carolina-a whopping 3 whole inches. The day before the snow came I did what every good Southerner does before a snowstorm and stocked up excessively on my milk, bread and eggs.

While I was at the store I thought to myself, if I’m going to be stuck inside with my three boys for a day or two I might as well try a few of those recipes I’ve been storing in the back of my mind.  I loaded up my cart with baking supplies and spent two days testing new recipes. This recipe, for White Chocolate Cookie Bars, was a huge hit with my boys and neighbors and I’m very excited to share it with you today!!


1 box yellow cake mix
1 box instant white chocolate pudding mix
1/4 cup water
3/4 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs
1 cup +1/2 cup white chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a large bowl mix cake mix, pudding mix, water, oil, and eggs until well blended.
  • Add in one cup of chocolate chips and combine.
  • Spread mixture in a greased 9×13 baking pan and sprinkle top with remaining 1/2 cup chocolate chips.
  • Bake 25-30 minute until golden brown.
  • Allow to cool before cutting. Makes about 20 bars.

DIY Scented Room Spray | Pretty Handy Girl

I’m not exactly known for my short and sweet tutorials. But, I assure you this recipe for making DIY scented room spray is exactly that…short and sweet! What I like best about this DIY room spray is that it uses natural ingredients and natural scents. The chemical or fake smell of commercially bought room deodorizers really bothers me.

Summertime is here and cool popsicles are a must on a hot day. Sure you can buy a pack of popsicles at the grocery store, but this mama is trying to eliminate food dyes and increase the healthy desserts. With that goal I set forth to create festive fruit popsicles using a few ingredients I had on hand. And I used my newest kitchen appliance, the Ninja (which I absolutely LOVE! And am not paid to say that.)
