Red velvet crinkles and foam roller love

16 Feb

Last night I made these quick and easy red velvet crinkle cookies for Mark for Just Because/Valentine’s Day. They were delicious!


I chose the recipe that uses cake mix simply because I wanted to quicken the process. I really prefer baking from scratch because it seems like I’m putting more of myself into it and I don’t like the added chemicals that tend to be in the boxed stuff. (Chemical food dye – yikes!)

My legs were feeling extra sore this morning after the booty burn circuit I did. The goal of today’s run was really just to loosen up. I had to hit the foam roller pretty hard and stretch extra long today. Phew!

Ahh, feels so good.

Now I’m off to help my friend prepare for her 2nd annual Mardi Gras party! We’ll be baking and cooking New Orleans style treats to enjoy.
