Happy Birthday! I first made these fora girl who was turning 12. She has a late August birthday so she had to go back to school a few days later. When I asked her what she wanted for her birthday, she asked for makeup and clothes.  Talk about puberty!! She was so concerned on looking perfect at school and being all popular. She never card until then and I was like, what just happened to you??!!!! That is when I decided to make pretty pancakes!! If people want to look good, why can’t pancakes? I just made my normal favorite pancake mix then added sprinkles. I was nervous cause it was her birthday and if I messed this up it would be a waste of food and money. I like my pancakes fat, thick, and fluffy. That is just what these were!! They were amazing! Thick light and fluffy!!! It looked as good as it taste!! Oh and tip, when I say sprinkles, I mean sprinkles not sugar crystals.

She had no idea I was making these, I didn’t even until I saw her oufit that day. But it is the best surprise!! Any surprise on your birthday is good but breakfast starts your day great. Everything is better with sprinkles! confetti screams birthday to me. That is why confetti cupcakes are called birthday cake flavored cupcakes, not confetti

Now that school is coming closer, it is way harder to make breakfast for my family. My family eats cereal every morning. But people like me, with weekday birthdays every year, its gets annoying having cereal everyday. These are quick and easy and they are a life saver! They taste good, then they look birthday spirited. As much as I love my family, I also love my sleep and I don’t want to be waking up at 3am making pancakes. These take less then 5 minutes to prep and no more then 10 minutes to cook and cool all them!  So ba-bam perfect birthday breakfast!!

Giant Chocolate Chip Birthday Cookie

Happy Birthday!! I love birthdays!! Its is my favorite holiday besides easter!! I love my cake and all but to be honest, I like giant cookies more. My dad was never a big cake fan. He doesn’t like frosting. He finds cake to sweet. So we used to make buy him cookie cakes from great american cookie. My birthday is in september and his is in August so it was close. One year, I decided I wanted a cookie cake. But not just any, I wanted to make one. So I made my favorite cookie recipe just made one pig one, and made a homemade frosting. I love making vanilla frosting and putting food coloring in it to make it more of the person’s taste. I  did hot pink for my sister, Baby blue for my nephew, and dark green for my dad. Its yummy and cute. You can put M&Ms and sprinkles on it to if you want. Your birthday your pick.

I honestly don’t know how to describe how good a cookie is. Everybody who reads my blog I’m assuming has had a chocolate chip cookie. Rich, soft, and delicious, best classic dessert! Its great! For my birthday, I still make this!! I have gotten in to these more then the traditional birthday cake. I rather eat it.

I’m at a lost for words, I was watching the little couple. I have never watched it before but there was nothing on and to be honest, I liked it. It is so sweet!! They adopted a little boy from China. Its so cute!!! You know what I should do, I should make chocolate cookies and make it one big cookie. Think I should?? I’m bored!!! I just had dinner, chicken pot pie. Now everything is cleaned up and I’m just sitting on the couch bloging

So if you are reading this, and it is your birthday. I would like to say happy birthday!! My birthday is september 12. But enough about my birthday, its yours!! You are in to a big birthday treat!!  A soft chocolaty warm giant cookie! What can be better!
