Top 5 songs that suit the mood you are in right now
I decided to post my Oreo Surprise recipe as well for The Mrs. Recipe Hop. My Oreo Surprise cakes are my most requested item. In fact, just yesterday a few ladies from work began nagging me about bringing some in to share.
-1 cup of sugar
-Large selection of mini Oreo cookies. You probably only need about 48 but I like to garnish mine a little more than your average person. Always goes over well!
-About 2 tubs of cool whip or whipped topping. NO SPRAY whipped cream..this will melt.
-In a medium bowl, mix cream cheese, egg and sugar until well blended.
-Spoon batter into muffin cups, filling about halfway. Top each with about 1/2 Tbsp. of the cream-cheese mixture and 1 mini cookie. Spoon more cake batter over the tops to cover the cream cheese and cookie.
-Bake 19 to 22 minutes, or until toothpick inserted near center comes out clean.
-MOST IMPORTANT:Let cupcakes cool completely. I would let them sit on a rack for about 45 mintues or more. This is important because if you add the whipped cream topping to even a slightly warm cake it will make the whipped cream watery and it will melt and just make a mooshy mess.
My Bestie, The Mrs., has her recipe hop in full swing right now! I decided to post a recipe for something that is ALWAYS a hit at any party/BBQ/Dinner event that I throw. I mentioned before, I usually host a Fourth of July BBQ, a Halloween party, a pre-Christmas dinner and a New Years Eve party. As well as several BBQ's in between. These are not small gatherings..they normally bring in 12 to 15 folks at a time. The one item that I am constantly asked about and is raved about for weeks after these events is the recipe I am about to give you!
-one 12 oz can of frozen lemonade
-2 cups of dark (unsweet) tea
-1 cup of sugar
-1 Large can of Pineapple juice
-2 cups (0r more..depending on the severity of your in-laws) of Bourbon
-one 2 liter bottle of Sprite or lemon flavored soda of choice.
-Place pitcher in freezer
After In-Law Antidote has frozen remove from freezer:
Garnish with pineapple, oranges, cherries..whatever you got.
and ENJOY!! (well as much as you can with in-laws afoot..) *wink*
Tuesday Tunes: Week 133
Let's do something fun.
My Bestie 'The Mrs' over at Trying Our Best is doing a recipe blog hop May 19 thru May 26.
Top 5 Theme Songs from either movies or tv
Super frustrated this week. It's just one of those weeks where I wake up each morning and the first thing I ask myself is:
"What's the point?"
I go into the loo someone has messed the seat. I wish I were exaggerating but I'm not. Every time.
and have a little yellow farm house with a white picket fence
and a summer home in St. Barts
and have a maid...to clean both houses.....
and have dinner with the Hanks' every other Sunday
*sigh* Oh well...
Here's to a new week folks!
I've been absent from my favorite Music Blog since May Madness started. I had a few cake orders and updated the Cake blog (link to the right) if you are interested in looking.
Here we go with two Music Meme's I neglected but were too good to pass up!
