It's like an Oreo Club Sandwich...


Please vote in poll in sidebar.
Which do you prefer?
Chocolate or Vanilla

I have loved Oreos for as long as I can remember. Whenever I see a package, that tune instantly starts in my head...Who's that kid with the Oreo cookie....(Be glad you can hear me) I love the chocolate filled oreos, I love the seasonal Oreos of different colors, I love regular Oreos, I love double stuffed Oreos...This is like an Oreo Club Sandwich!
I take them apart and eat the cream, sometime I take two apart and eat the plain cookies sides and then put the two cream sides together. It's really quite a ritual always accompanied with a big glass of ice cold milk. I also use Oreos in recipes for crusts, fillings and decoration.

I went on Amazon and signed up to be notified of when they will be available.

The best Zucchini Bread you will ever eat...

This is the best zucchini bread recipe I have ever made. I found it at, but I tweaked it a bit. I get lots of compliments and recipe requests .

Zucchini Bread

3 cups of flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
3 teaspoons ground cinnamon
3 eggs
1 cup vegetable oil
2 cups sugar
3 teaspoons vanilla extract
4 cups grated zucchini
1 cup walnuts (optional)


Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease and flour two 8x4 pans.

Sift flour , salt, baking powder, baking soda and cinnamon.

Beat eggs, oil, vanilla and sugar in a large bowl.

Add sifted ingredients to the creamed mixture and beat well. Add zucchini and nuts until well combined.

Pour into two prepared pans.

Bake 50-75 mins.(I know that is a wide span to time, the first time I made it I checked it every 15 minutes starting at 45 minutes and with my glass loaf pans it takes 75 minutes.)

Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookies with a twist...

I love chocolate chip cookies! (I love to eat the dough, it's so good.) I decided I needed something sweet to get me through the night, so I made cookies, only thing was I only had a partial bag of semi-sweet chips, but I also had a 1/3 bag of white chocolate chips, about 1/3 of milk chocolate chips and about 1/4 of a bag of dark chocolate chips left over from Easter. So I put them all in...I have tried several chocolate chip cookie recipes over the years and I always come back to Nestle Toll House Cookies.

Check out this cookie sheet. It's silicone and it comes apart so you can roll it up. This will be my first time using it. Exciting...(but I  still used parchment paper)


Original NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 1/4 flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
3/4 granulated sugar
3/4 brown sugar
2 sticks of butter
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
2 cups chocolate chips ( I used semi-sweet, milk, dark and white chocolate chips)
1 cup nuts (optional)

Preheat over to 375 degrees

In a small bowl, combined the flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in morsels and nuts. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets.

Bake for 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.

Grab the milk from the fridge and have a seat....yum!!
