You may have noticed the picture that changes occasionally on the right towards the bottom of the page. That’s my instagram. I don’t always use it, but when I do it’s usually for the things I bake. I believe my current photo is of Oreo Balls. They are freaking delicious and so far everyone loves them. I have had 3 different people request them for birthdays/events/or just for eating. They are soooo easy to make too. And inexpensive, which is great when you work on a budget.
All you need is one pack of Oreos, original, not double stuffed or anything, one 8 oz pack of cream cheese at room temperature, white melting chocolate or chocolate chips, and finally vegetable shortening.
I love baking. I also love cooking. I just love being in the kitchen. I know feminists out there, that was cringe worthy, but I feel so satisfied when I am creating something delicious in the kitchen. Baking is probably my favorite, even though I don’t eat a lot of sweet because I taste test as I go to make sure it’s coming out right. This means all the cookies, cakes, cupcakes, brownies, etc that I make have to find homes. Which usually results in my coworkers gaining some weight. But they love what I make so they kind of just suck it in. haha, see what I did there?
I always bake from scratch too. I mean sugar, flour, baking powder, the works! And it always turns out so much better than they box mixed stuff. And sometimes cheaper too. Yes, initially buying all the individual ingredients may cost more, but they last longer. One box of cake makes one cake (or 12 cupcakes). One bag of flour makes a lot of cake and cupcakes 🙂
Anyway. There is no particular point to this post other than to let you (my darling readers) know that I love to cook and bake and we need to have a dinner party!
