Saw It. Pinned It. Did It!

This morning while catching up on blog reading, I came across this neat linkup and since I had a week of pinterest baking I thought it would be fun to participate! I, like everyone else, am addicted to Pinterest but definitely pin 90% more than I actually "do" the pin...So last weekend I attempted some pinterest recipes and that's what I'm sharing today!
On Pinterest I came across this:

OREO COOKIE BROWNIES (yes, that's right!) and I actually had them at a party and thought I saw this on Pinterest and I'm making them!
Here's my pictures of the process:

They were the hit of our friends game night!
Also, last weekend I attempted another dessert but this time...Lo Cal! (had to make up for those brownies!)

This recipe is great because it's so simple (you only need 2 ingredients -7up and funfetti cake mix dry- for the cupcakes! and the 2-ff cool whip and dry vanilla pudding mix- for the frosting) and it's SUPER lo-calorie!
Bonus: makes pretty pink batter!
My 1st attempt and making pretty frosting!
and Finally...I came upon this recipe and made it for our Bible study!

And here's how mine looked!
They came out more "bready" or scone like because I let the kitchen aid run, making them thick (but GREAT with coffee!)


Thanks for reading! Have y'all ever baked any of these before? I LOVE baking and since we eat pretty healthy in our house I don't bake that often...thank goodness for game nights, bible studies, and any other party reason to break out the pinterest goodies!
