 I have been wanting a deep fried Oreo for years! Every time I would go to an amusement park or fair the stand for deep fried Oreos wasn't open. I was so intrigued about these deep fried Oreos I said "I'm going to make them myself from home" I was surprised at how little bit of ingredients to make them. Here is everything you need:

This is it! (Plus the milk I forgot to put in the photo) 
-Pack of Oreos
- 1 Cup Pancake Mix
-2/3 Cup of milk (pictured below)
-1 egg
-1 1/2 Teaspoon vegetable oil
-Confectioner Sugar (To sprinkle on top when the Oreos are finished)
This is all you need to make deep fried Oreos at home. Place all of the ingredients into a bowl and make a nice batter to dip the Oreos. 
My batter was a little thin so I added some more pancake mix to make it just a tad more thick but not too thick. Add the milk a little at a time so you can get the batter exactly how you would like it. Here is the fun part...Dip your Oreos with a slotted spoon and put them in the hot oil.
I used the deepest pan I have to fry in. Make sure you have enough oil in the pan to almost immerse the Oreo. They cook extremely quick so make sure to turn them quickly after about a minute or two. It's very similar to how funnel cakes cook and taste.
Take them out put them on a plate with paper towels. Sprinkle the confectioner sugar on top and enjoy!
They turned out amazing! I ate all 12 (That's not good) but that is how good they were. I can't wait to do these with family because it reminds me of carnival/fair/amusement park food and I think it makes for a good time with a group of people. Make sure to give these a try for your next game night or gathering. Thank you for stopping by and have a great one!











 This is one of my favorite quick breakfast recipes Vanilla Allspice Cinnamon Pancakes! It taste so good you wouldn't realize how low cost it is. Take a box of any brand Pancake mix I chose Kroger buttermilk pancake mix. The whole box is under $2.00 which is a steal because as a single person I will have that box for a long time.

Here are the couple ingredients that are going to turn your basic morning pancake into a gourmet five star restaurant tasting pancake.
This is all we are adding to the pancake mix. Water, Cinnamon, Vanilla Extract and Allspice. My cinnamon and imitation vanilla extract are from the Dollar Tree. The Allspice was from a farmer's market a very long time ago and was under $2.00.
I combine all the ingredients into a mixing bowl. I don't measure out anything just put as much of everything as you would like. Some people don't like cinnamon or allspice you can omit both and just add vanilla if you chose.
My batter made about (3) fluffy small/medium pancakes. I like to mix the batter for at least (5) minutes. In my mind it makes the pancake cook more fluffy.
And there it is! A (3) stack of beautiful golden brown vanilla cinnamon and allspice pancakes topped with some plant based butter and syrup. You can definitely stay in budget and eat great tasting meals. 

Here is the video I made on these pancakes on Youtube.

Thank you for coming by to read the blog! Hope you make these for your next frugal breakfast!





 






 So I woke up today with simple living on the brain. It’s become my new obsession. Scaling back my lifestyle to live slower is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made for my life. When I was younger in my 20’s I would have so many problems with money and my health and I see now in my mid 30’s that was due to stress and doing too much at one time. 

When I wake up I drink tea and have a banana and maybe some cereal. Then I check on my online sales on Mercari, Ebay and Depop. And start the day with good intentions to create great content and make the best merchandise (MERCH) I can make. I’ve even added blogging into my daily calendar. I love the freedom of writing out my thoughts instead of videos. The direction I want to take on videos is more of a teaching approach. I really enjoyed videos showing people how to do things. I’m pulling away from the vlogs a little more just focusing on vlogging life events I can look back on not so much of everyday life.

Self care has also been at the top of my list. With everything going on I like to prepare my own foods. I’ve started sprouting Alfalfa seeds  in my kitchen and creating bean salads almost every other day. I also like to pickle my own green peppers and onions in apple cider vinegar. Then with the apple cider vinegar I take a shot or two. It’s been a relief to have food made and not go out to eat. There is so much going on I don’t want to eat out at this time.

It’s really a joy to see at the end of the day you created all this different merchandise and content for different platforms and you're on your way to making a full-time creative income. You just have to keep going and living this simple efficient lifestyle makes it possible. I will always preach to pull back your living expenses and make as much money as you can! Here is the most important part ----> Invest in skills. This is what takes your income up. Every time you learn a new skill you have a new avenue to make more money. 


So far for me it’s been working great! I hope for the entrepreneurs out there that you try this so you can get to a creative lifestyle as quickly as possible. You don’t have to wait 10-20 years to retire. Why not live the life you built RIGHT NOW! Personally I don’t want to retire. I want to be doing what I’m doing now basically forever. Choose to love your life guise. Thank you for coming by! I’ll see ya in the next post.
