Homemade Oreos

16 Jan

This past week I came across a recipe for Homemade Oreos and decided it was a treat I’d attempt for Valentine’s Day. I just couldn’t wait and made them this weekend.

I only had enough cocoa for half a batch, so I put my math skills to work and halved the recipe. My advice: don’t be lazy, just drive to the store and get more cocoa! Halving the recipe included halving an egg, which an old wives tale says can’t be done! Well it can, simply put the egg in a small container with a lid and shake like crazy. Once the egg is completely combined, measure out 1 1/2 tablespoons and you are good to go- you have half a large egg!

These treats were way easier to make than I imagined they would be, except when it came to frosting them. My advice again: don’t be lazy, find your pastry bags! Generic brand sandwich bags always break, leaving you a mEsS! I frosted them in Green Bay Packers colors since I was headed to a Packers party, which was difficult to do as a die-hard Minnesota Vikings Fan. I guess it’s the price you pay when your team doesn’t show up to play… all season. They were a big hit and will be made again sometime soon!

Be sure to visit My Baking Addiction for the yummy recipe, which I only slightly adapted. I had unsweetened cocoa in the cupboard instead of Dutch processed cocoa. I added a dash of baking soda per ounce of cocoa to compensate for this ingredient swap!

Tailgating

9 Nov

It has become a family tradition to tailgate at the home Iowa State football games. It’s something I look forward to weekly, but every week it reminds me I’m not as young as I’d like to be, AKA I feel old amongst all the young students. Some days I’m glad I’ve grown up and some days it just makes me wish I was back in school. Here are some photos I captured tailgating, more to come soon!

And of course with tailgating there comes game time. Now we may not have the best team, but I love the game atmosphere. I love the fun Cyclone aerobics we do and I enjoy the band.

Was doing some google searching today and also came across this site –>  FotoFlexer  It’s pretty similar to Picnik, but it had some different options you didn’t have to pay for.  Here are some pictures I edited! 🙂
