7 Random Things and Oreo Cheesecake Cookies

My friend Jolene at Everyday Foodie was kind enough to give me this:

Her blog is awesome and reading it has given me great ideas for trying new and different foods that I never would have had I not read about her interesting eats.

To accept this Stylish Blogger Award, I have to give 7 random facts about myself, then pass the award on to other new bloggers!

7 Random Facts About Me

1. If I could, I would watch tv all day long. For a week. Maybe more.

2. I LOVE syrup. I put it on things like eggs. And grilled cheese sandwiches.

3. My first cassette tape was the Mini Pops. I thought I would grow up to be a part of the group.

4) I think men's feet are disgusting and people with exceptionally large hands scare me.

5) I like reading teen fiction. Sometimes.

6) I love having a clean house, but my room is a complete disaster.

7) When I was little I thought the prostitutes in Pretty Woman were "really good dressers" and I wanted to be like them when I grew up.

I am passing this award on to two blogs that I just discovered. My friend Megan from elementary school owns a fabulous store in Saskatoon called Paisley Party and Gift Boutique. Her blog is fairly new and is very stylish and filled with great products!

The other person I am giving this award to is Chelsi for her wedding blog. It is adorable and her wedding ideas are so unique! She is one of the most stylish people I know.

And now....for food.

For my murder mystery night I was looking to try a new cookie recipe and decided on Josh and Maria's Oreo Cheesecake Cookies. Follow the link to get the recipe.

For this recipe you need the following ingredients:

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

Cream the butter and the cream cheese until they are smooth.

Slowly add flour until just incorporated.

Add your mini chocolate chips.

Form the dough into 1 inch balls then roll them in oreo cookie crumbs.

Place on your cookie sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes.

Attempt to microwave white chocolate chips. Burn them twice and stink up the house. Instead use a makeshift double-boiler and melt them on the stove.

Drizzle melted white chocolate onto cooled cookies.

These cookies were so good, although there is nothing healthy about them. Oh wait! I used low-fat cream cheese.

So eat up!

Have a great Friday:)



  1. I totally wanted to be a Mini Pop too!!! I had all of their records!
