Yummy Oreo Truffles

Yummy Oreo Truffles

I’ve always said,  “You can’t trust a person who doesn’t like Oreo’s”. Now, there  might be some exceptions but I do believe that all the greatest people in my life are also big Oreo’s fans. Normally, I’m not much for sweets- I prefer to drink my calories in the form of red wine- but now that I have children and a sweet toothy husband, I find myself needing more dessert recipes than ever. We started experimenting with all the ways we could improve upon the already delicious goodness that Oreo’s has created for us: we’ve had deep fried Oreo’s, Oreo icebox pie, and chocolate covered Oreo’s with great delight. The best recipe we have found, however, is this one: yummy Oreo Truffles. These truffles are sooo creamy on the inside, it’s like how perfectly soft the cookie gets when it’s been dunked in milk for *just* the right amount of time. And the white chocolate outer shell just balances the whole experience out! If you liked this post you should check out my Facebook The Stylish Mommy and Instagram @the_stylish_mommy! XOXO

Totally Non Paleo Key Lime Pie

I’m going to go ahead and throw me dear husband completely under the Dessert Truck; Keith made me make a key lime pie today. More like, we were at the grocery store and they actually had Key Limes. Therefore, I was obligated to make a Key Lime Pie.  It should noted that it’s an absolute miracle that he even wants to try a Key Lime Pie made by me considering how dreadful the first Key Lime I made him was. The gist of the story is that, as we all know, baking is not my forte. When we were first dating Keith mentioned that his favorite dessert was Key Lime Pie. Naturally, I called my mom for her recipe. She told me to get CONDENSED milk. That’s where things got tricky. I purcahsed – and used – EVAPORATED milk instead. Basically, I ended up making a Key Lime Quiche. It was awful. But he at least took 1 bite.  Ever since the Key Lime Quiche incident, I’ve been looking to redeem myself in the Key Lime department. I have finally gotten the best pie recipe down, adapted from Dinosaur BBQ in New York.  If you liked this post you should really check out my Facebook The Stylish Mommy and Instagram @the_stylish_mommy !
