Easter w/ Sami Tucker & Dash ~ Old Phone ~ Carrot Cake Whoopie Pies ~ PB&J Day


Good 35º clear morning. 
 
 
Yesterday I was up early and headed to Brian and Jen's for Tucker and Sami's Easter Egg Hunt. Here are a few photos. Dash was helping, of course.....
 





Brian decorated a bunch of bottles of wine for Jen and the "Easter Bunny" hid them around the yard....
 
The Easter Bunny left one for me too! It's the one on the far left. Says on the bottle "water into wine". If Jesus didn't mean for us to drink wine, he would not have turned the water into the wine!
 
Then we went to Taprock for their Easter Buffet Brunch.....
 
The sun was hiding all day. Here is the cloud cover over Taprock.
We did warm to the 60ºs.
 
 
 

 


Carrot Cake Whoopie Pies are going to put a hop in your step this summer! You won't believe how easy it is to make! Carrot cake mix is baked like a cookie and each delectable dessert has a fluffy cream cheese filling that will bring the feeling of summer into your kitchen.

 

 

 

  • 1 (21.41-ounce) package carrot cake mix
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 stick butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 5 cups confectioners' sugar

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat baking sheets with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl with an electric mixer, combine cake mix (see Note), oil, water, and eggs; beat well. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto baking sheets about 2 inches apart. (Since "cakes" will be baked in batches, refrigerate batter until ready to place on baking sheets.)
  3. Bake 12 to 14 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Let cakes cool slightly then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.

To Make Cream Cheese Filling

  1. In a large bowl with an electric mixer, beat cream cheese, butter, and vanilla until fluffy. 
  2. Beat in confectioners' sugar 1 cup at a time until smooth.

To Finish

  1. Turn half the cooled cakes over onto their rounded sides and spread a dollop of filling over them. Place the other half of the cakes on top of the filling, forming sandwiches. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

This food holiday is a classic favorite of many.  The average American will have eaten over 2000 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches by the time they graduate from high school.
Peanut butter was considered a delicacy in the early 1900s and was only served in New York City’s finest tea rooms.  In a May 1896 article published in the Good Housekeeping magazine, a recipe “urged homemakers to use a meat grinder to make peanut butter and spread the result on bread.”  That same year, in June, the culinary magazine Table Talk, published a “peanut butter sandwich recipe.”
It is thought to be that the first reference of peanut butter paired with jelly on bread, to be issued in the United States, was by Julia Davis Chandler in 1901.  In the late 1920s, the price of peanut butter declined, and the sandwich became very popular with children.
According to the Peanut Board, during World War II, both peanut butter and jelly were part of the United States soldiers military ration list.
In 1968, The J.M. Smucker Co. introduced Goober, a jarred product which combined alternating vertical stripes of peanut butter and jelly.
