I am a newlywed on a budget, just trying to make healthy and inexpensive meals for my husband and I to enjoy. He eats a lot, so cost is a big factor. Though I work 3 jobs, I manage to find time 6 nights a week to cook a full dinner for us both. I am constantly looking for new recipes that are moderately healthy, taste great, and won't break the bank.

On the side, I also own a brownie business called Gersheybars. My passion and love for cooking started when I was just a small child, baking with my mom and grandmother. The brownie recipe has been passed down through 5 generations and I am thrilled to finally have an outlet to share them with everybody else. Friends and family have helped spread the word and made my business as successful as it is today.

Pumpkin Cookies

Since Fall is right around the corner, I figured I'd better make something with pumpkin in it to kick the season off right. These are really easy to make. Not the BEST cookies I've made, but they're good.

  • 1 box Spice Cake mix
  • 1 15 oz can of Pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup chopped Walnuts
  • 1 cup dark Chocolate Chips

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Place cake mix and pumpkin in mixing bowl. Gently mix together with a wooden spoon. Be careful not to overmix or the cookies will be chewy.

2. Add nuts and chocolate chips, stirring to combine.

3. Scoop dough onto greased cookie sheet and bake at 425 for 10-12 minutes. Let cool on cookie sheet 2 minutes before placing on wire rack to cool completely.
