Grandma's Oatmeal ChocoChip Cookies

This is a picture of the diliscious cookie dough that this recipe makes. And as you can tell, most of the cookie dough from this bowl is gone! That's because us + our families ate it! It's sooo good and irrisistable. You just cover the bowl of cookie dough up with saran wrap and stick it in the fridge and then eat it whenever ya want! (Or all the time, 24/7 like I do! :)

And here's the recipe you can use to make this mouthwatering cookie dough, or of bake the cookie dough into cookies of course!

We were reading a post from the Lost Button Studio about how she hadn't posted in a while because she just needed a break. We thought that was a great idea (to take a break) because we have been so stressed trying to get everything up in time so that is why we haven't posted in a while. You definitely can expect a lot more in August and we still will post a little bit this following week.

Also, the winner of the poll said that they didn't mind if the Craft Corner was not on Saturday so it will still be weekly just not on Saturdays anymore so come find it.

One more thing, if you have a facebook make sure to become a fan of Bowl of Scraps on facebook because there are exclusive pictures that we have not shown on the blog so you can go look at those. The direct web address is right here but you need to have a facebook to connect to that link.

A Colorful Happy Birthday!

It's Kristina Werner's 56th Color Inspiration Challenge! And here are the colors we had to use:

We thought these colors would make a great Happy Birthday card (in celebration of Carly's birthday)! So that's what we did :)

To complete the Happy Birthday card there had to be a bow on it, right? So, like all beautifully wrapped gifts, we stuck a mini white sheer color bow in the top right corner.

Another idea we used was colaborating all different colored thread into a bow! And if you were wondering, the colors that were put into that multi-colored bow are... red, orange, yellow, green, and blue. (All the colors from the challenge, except for white.)

Well, we hope you liked the card! Leave comments below on whatcha thought ;)

Baseball Cupcakes!

My brother had a baseball tournament this weekend and so I decided I would make some baseball cupcakes for the team! And let me just tell you, they very greatly appreciated them! Haha. :) BTW... They've won both their games so far! But they still have two more games to go. They won one of the games 18 to 5 and the other game they won 15 to 0! Yeah!

Anyways, here's how to make these super cute baseballs!

Baseball Cupcakes

~Vanilla cake mix
~Vanilla frosting*
~Red food dye
~Blue food dye
~Cupcake liners**

*We like Betty Crocker Whipped Butter Cream Frosting ;)

**I found the cutest cupcake liners at Carty City that were perfect for the occasion!


1. Follow the directions on the box of your cake mix.
2. Take two small bowls and fill them with some of the vanilla frosting. Now take the red food dye and color one of the bowls of frosting red. Do the same with the blue food dye and the other bowl of frosting.

3. Get 2 piping bags and the tips you would like and screw the tips onto each bag. (We like the Wilton tip #3 and #4). Use a spoon to transfer the blue frosting into one of the bags and do the same with the red frosting. Set aside for now.

4. Once out of the oven and cooled, frost the cupcakes with the white vanilla frosting.

5. Take your piping bags that you have filled and get ready to start piping! First, use the bag of red frosting and make two curved lines at opposite sides, as in the pictures.
6. Now use the blue frosting bag to 'write' a player's baseball number in the middle of the two curved lines. (Again, use the pictures as references!)

7.Use a toothpick two make it look like the stitching on a baseball. (Also, see picture below).

8. Store in an airtight container and have them ready to serve at the next baseball game! :)

And if you have extra frosting, but you have no idea what to do with it, no worries! We have the perfect idea.....

.....Eat it!

That's what we did! Obviously... :)
