So Much to do so Little Time

I am expecting lots of visitors next week and I must prepare.

I have so much to do and not nearly enough time to do it all.


First I would like to share a recipe for my favorite easy cookies and my finally perfected Sweet MJ cocktail.

Cake Mix Cookies

  • 1 box of Triple Chocolate Fudge Cake Mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup Andes creme de menthe baking chips
Mix all the ingredients together. Roll a spoonful into a ball and place on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake at  350 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Cookies are good warm or cooled.

Sweet MJ

  • 1 oz Whipped Vodka
  • 1 oz Malibu Coconut Rum
  • 3 oz Orange Juice
  • 1 oz Pineapple Juice
or if you prefer a nonalcoholic version

  • 3 oz Orange Juice
  • 1 oz Pineapple Juice
  • 2 oz 7-up

Shake or stir over ice. Stain and enjoy.

Please eat and drink responsibly.


  1. Now that cocktail sounds simple devine.

  2. Whipped vodka? Now I'm intrigued! And those cookies sound amazing!

    1. I think technically they call it whip cream vodka but we call it whipped cause we are lazy here.

      The cookies are so easy. You can really do it with any cake mix...another favorite is lemon cake cookies and cream cheese frosting.

  3. Umm I am want that cocktail and a beach with a sunset immediately!

  4. These recipes sound fantastic! I can't wait until I can try the regular version of the Sweet MJ

  5. Lovely! Thanks for the hospitality, MJ...

  6. This is my first time to you blog and I discovered it through a SITS email. Congratulations! I would love to eat those cookies right now! I have a friend that used to fix me the Malibu Coconut Rum with O.J. I have never tried the vodka and the pineapple in it, but now I will have to (thanks to you!) :) It sounds YUMMY!

  7. Those cookies paired with some Blue Bunny birthday cake ice cream equals perfection!!!!! Thanks for the recipe. I don't cook, but my sister does so I'll be printing this off for her!!!

    Happy SITS day!
