Ingredients
2 quarts vegetable oil for frying
1 large egg
1 cup milk
2 teaspoons vegetable oil
1 cup pancake mix
1 (18 ounce) package cream-filled chocolate sandwich cookies (such as Oreo®)
Directions
Heat oil in deep-fryer to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

Cake pops.  If you haven’t tried them yet, you have NO CHOICE.  Make them and eat them.  They are amazing.
 
Ingredients
Strawberry Cake Mix (any brand is fine)
2 - 8 oz. pkgs. Cream Cheese softened
2 c. Powdered Sugar sifted
1/2 c .Butter softened
1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
2- 11 oz. bags White Chocolate Chips (I use Ghirardelli)
Lollipop Sticks
Directions  
Prepare strawberry cake mix according to package directions. Allow to cool. In the mean time prepare cream cheese frosting. In a medium bowl, beat together the cream cheese and butter until creamy. Mix in the vanilla, then gradually stir in the sifted powdered sugar. Once cake has cooled, crumble it into a large bowl. Add frosting and stir until well combined. Roll frosting and cake mixture into 1 inch balls (you can use a melon scoop to make this easier). Insert one stick into each ball and place in refrigerator to harden. Once balls have hardened (1-2 hours) prepare white chocolate for dipping. Place 2/3 of white chocolate in a microwave safe bowl and heat in 30 second increments until melted, stirring in between. Once melted, add reserved 1/3 of chocolate and stir until combined. Dip each cake pop in white chocolate then place on parchment paper to harden. You can add colored sugar, sprinkles, or any other topping you desire. Let harden and enjoy! Refrigerate until use as well as any leftovers.

Tortillas - The Perfect Wraps


Tortilla wraps have been around a while and they’ll hold just about anything. Here are a few ideas.—Breakfast burritos were wildly popular a few years ago. They’re still very tasty. Scramble an egg, add cheese and crumbled sausage. Top with salsa and you have a great meal for any time of day!—Cheesy Mexican rice - just add tomatoes (or Ro-Tel) to a regular batch of white rice and let it cook. Add Velveeta and melt, then roll up it up in a tortilla.—Any tuna or chicken salad recipe.—Leftover chicken or turkey. Line the wrap with a clean spinach leaf, then fill with favorite ingredients, including tomatoes, lettuce and salsa.
