Pink Bunny Cupcakes
These were so cute, I just had to make them. I used the Strawberry Cake Mix, but made my own cream cheese frosting, I just added a little strawberry jam to my frosting recipe, and they were fantastic. The noodles for wiskers was a little time consuming, so after a few of them, I just little red candy straws. There are all kinds of ways to improvise what you use on the face. To "Mama Sparks", you can get pink muffin cups at a craft store like Michaels, or similar stores that have a "Wilton" baking aisle. Too bad we can't upload pictures of how our cupakes look after we made them.

These were so AWESOME. No wonder they won a contest. I feel like I could win a contest with these. I still can believe you use a mix. I have always been a 'from scratch' cookie baker, but not when it comes to these. I wouldn't change one thing on the recipe, it's perfect and sooo easy. The icing is super delicious, and one batch of icing is enough for two batches of cookies, just FYI.

Cranberry-Glazed Appetizer Meatballs
These are excellent meatballs. First let me say, I take a shortcut and buy a bag of quality meatballs from "the club". I made these for a Christmas Eve party appetizer,and they were so great, I can't wait to make them for the next party or potluck. The sauce was so good you just want to slurp it up. I used the ENTIRE can of Jellied Cranberry Sauce. (It was a 14 ounce can). That is how the recipe is written on the cranberry company's website, and it turned out so great, I would never try it any differently. The person who had lumps in their sauce, perhaps did not have the 'jellied' sauce.

Slow-Cooker Chicken Verde Tortilla Soup
This was great, and my family loved it. I didn't have time to cook in crockpot, so cooked in my soup pot on top of stove. I substitued half a can of tomatoes in the place of fresh. I was very pleased with soup. It was first time making torilla soup. I might put in half a can of black beans next time, for extra color and taste.
