Homemade Oreos

Thanks for bearing with me last week. Please know that I love you all for sticking with me through a random non-baking update and being kind about it! Also, glad to hear from others who occasionally try to be crafty as well. I will post pics of the final product of my furious amounts of crocheting soon. I would have put it in this update but I don’t have any good pictures of it yet and I would hate to delay a food update again due to the scarf.


In the meantime, let’s get back to business.

Oreos out of the oven instead of the packet. It exists and I baked some.

Sharing something a little different.

Hey there party people! So you may have noticed, the picture above is not of food. It’s something I’ve been getting “geek crafty” with and been pushing to finish by Thursday to wear somewhere pretty geeky.


Probably, but only if I spend the next few nights working on it. It’s my first big crocheting project, so I’m not very fast. What does that mean for you guys, my lovely party people?

No update this week. Aside from this one. Which doesn’t count because there’s no food in it.

At least no food from me.

I figure, if I don’t have time to bake and edit photos for you guys, why don’t I share other food related things on the internet I love?

So I bring you Cooking Comically by Tyler Capps. Recipes as explained with the wit and hilarity of a spunky stick man? Yeah, I can get behind that.

I’m just going to include excerpts in an attempt to entice you to go to his site. He’s just starting out so give him some views! (by the by, I don’t even know the guy, I just think he’s hilarious enough to deserve it.)

He blends frozen bananas with peanut butter, chocolate ice cream and Reese’s Pieces. Yeah, that’s a thing. And I will be eating it.

A sample of his humour that I thoroughly enjoy:

I love that he understands the grazing we cooks and bakers must endure. It’s not pigging out. It’s a matter of life and death for the human race.

Anyhow, you should really click though on this link or the link above or any of the pictures and check out the whole recipe. There’s only one other recipe on the site so far for chili, but there should be more down the line. I can’t wait!

I will update on the geeky crochet if it ever completes. Which it will! By Thursday. For it must. Or this lack of update was for naught.

And I hate when things are for naught.

Pecan Date Bites

I’ve never baked with dates before. Not even the super standard Date Bars that most people have baked that aren’t me.

Did you know dates have pits? Don’t just take a knife and try to cut through them in one fell swoop. It will be bad. You know why? Because dates have pits. Cut around the pits.

It will go much better to cut around the pits. That is my point of advice to take home from this post, if nothing else. Continue reading
