Oreo Fluff

oreofluff 015

Watch out! Once you start eating this you won’t be able to stop! It’s really addicting especially if you love oreos.

It takes no time to make at all.

Take one box of instant jello pudding (white chocolate) and whisk in the amount of milk it calls for on the box. Fold in a whole container of cool whip and crushed oreos. I saved some oreos to decorate the top of the oreo fluff with to make it look nice.

I see that Dairy Queen has Funfetti Cake batter in an waffle cone now. Pardon me while I go there to get some.

This dessert can be made Weight Watcher friendly too. See the recipe below the original. :)

Chocolate Chia Pudding

I probably make it to Trader Joe’s at least 3 times a year and stock up on my Mandarin Orange Chicken, Roasted Garlic Marinara Sauce, and Olive oil when I go to Minneapolis. (wish one of those stores would come to Fargo)  I happened to find this packet of chia seeds at Trader Joe’s this time, and picked one up since I’ve been wanting to try chia seed pudding. Chia seeds are these little black tiny seeds that expand over time once you put them in liquid or yogurt. You can use whatever flavorings you like for this pudding and I used chocolate. Thought it could have used a bit more sweetener to it but otherwise I really liked the texture, it was something different.

You can make chocolate chia seeds, raspberry chia seeds, vanilla chia seeds, orange chia seeds, cranberry chia seeds, white chocolate chia seeds, oreo chia seeds, banana chia seeds, the list goes on and on. :)

This weekend I went to Minneapolis to visit my family there. Every time I go there, I have to try a new place that has been featured on the show Diner’s Drive Ins and Dives.  We went to Psycho Suzie’s Motor Lounge. It’s this cool place with a tiki vibe to it. The drink names on the menu were cute, I had the Psycho Zombie which had lime, coke, and rum in it and it was frozen  so it had the texture of a slurpee. They make you put a deposit down for your drinks because they come in cute mugs like this. People end up taking the mugs home with them sometimes cause they’re just so cute.

We had cheese curds and Hawaiian barbeque pizza. I liked the barbeque sauce on the pizza, it was spicy.

This is another recipe that went viral on my facebook page (look at the icons on the right hand side to find it) with over 165K in shares. Wow! It’s like the Potato and Sausage recipe I posted awhile back.

I can see why people love this one. Peanut butter and brownies, what’s not to love? You could use whatever you have left in the pantry for toppings. I had butterscotch chips and mini chocolate chips, doesn’t have to be m&m’s necessarly. Use your imagination!Instead of peanut butter try nutella and sweetened condensed milk together. Let your sweet tooth run wild with this peanut butter brownie pizza. Oh yah, I didn’t use a Krusteaz brownie mix bag, just a box of brownie mix. Cooked it in my 12 inch cast iron skillet with some parchment paper covering the pan and that worked like a charm.

Deep Dish Chocolate Chip Cookie

cookiepizza 009

I must admit, I have never cooked a big ass cookie inside a cast iron skillet before. Big ass cookie is the truth too (pardon my French), I took it out of the oven and I heard my husband say Holy crap, Jenna! :) I like my chocolate chip cookies under cooked in the middle inside and somewhat chewy on the outside. This cookie does just that. I was surfing through facebook and this recipe showed up on my news feed via Cooking Channel and had me drooling. I didn’t use any caramel sauce in the middle of mine, and now I wish I would have.

The website where I got this recipe from is very inspiring. I look at their stats page of income earned and I hope to one to day have a blog like theirs.
