"Life is either a daring adventure or nothing..." -Helen Keller




Oreos. One of the few "western"-style foods we can actually buy here. Nonetheless, on a home-alone evening when I most certainly did not feel like going out, I decided to have some Oreos waiting for precious Austin upon his arrival home. Here's how it happened:

-3 cups of flour (throw in some whole wheat so you feel better)
-1 1/3 cup of sugar
-1/2 cup cocoa powder
-2 teaspoons baking soda
-2 teaspoons salt
(The recipe I used from e-how was one of many recipes which calls for a box of chocolate cake mix, so I then had to google that, and the above is the starting base I found at a simplicity baking site, (Minus a little sugar).
-2 eggs
-2 T. oil plus some water (the recipe called for 1/2 cup oil, but that's way more than we ever like to use!

Mix it together, roll into small balls, about golf-ball shaped, and place on a cookie sheet.
Cook for 5-10 minutes at 350 degrees. If you cook for 5 minutes, they might seem a little undercooked... still delicious, but not as oreo-like. Cool for two minutes.
Add some frosting to the middle (If you live overseas, you'll have to make that from scratch too! :) ) Chill and enjoy with your favorite friend!
