Oreo Truffles – Off the charts good and easy1

November 28th, 2012 Posted in Recipes

Place a bag of mint or chocolate Oreos in a gallon Ziploc bag and crush cookies.  Let a brick of cream cheese come to room temperature (30 min) and blend with crushed cookies.  Melt dipping chocolate and dip teaspoon sized balls of cookie dough in chocolate.  Let dry on wax paper.

Orange Pomander Centerpiece

November 20th, 2012 Posted in Crafts

Here is a great smelling centerpiece that you can get the kids to help you make.  Use wooden skewers to poke the holes and let your kids fill them with the cloves and help you arrange the plate.  Fun and it lasts almost a week if you remember to refrigerate at night. I’ve used lemongrass instead of rosemary so mix it up and make it fun! Click here for the instructions59050_560344663981023_1598655527_n.jpg
