Slutty Valentines

I know I know.....Weird title for a Valentine's Day Post.

But the other day I discovered the perfect Valentine's dessert via the newsfeed on my Facebook.....who knew Facebook was full of such wonderful culinery delights.

The dessert I found is called Slutty Brownies and trust me when I tell you that they are life changing.

My friend Deb posted the recipe from a blog called The Londoner, and I am officially indebted to her now.

Here's how to make these tiny pieces of heaven.

Line a pan with wax paper.

Grab some ready-made cookie dough (or home made if you feel like you have the time), and press it into the pan.

Add a layer of Oreo Cookies. Yup...you heard me.

The final step is to make brownie batter (I made mine from a box....or homemade) and pour it over the cookie dough and the oreos.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

The result?

The BEST brownies you have EVER had.

The cookie base combined with the ooey-gooey middle is perfection. Perfect in every way.

I plan on making this recipe again and again.

And again.

So do youself a favor and make these soon...and please remember to invite me over. I'm sure somebody needs to do quality control taste testing.

Enjoy these. You can thank me later. And go check out The Londoner.

Happy Love Day Everybody!

SuperBowl Sunday Calorie Fest

It's that time of year again....SUPERBOWL SUNDAY!

Such an occasion calls for all New Years health-related resolutions to be thrown out the window in lieu of calorie-laden dips, breaded meats, and bread. Oh the bread.

Like last year, we had a few people over to watch the game, and wanted to have some good football eats to munch on while we watched Madonna's Half Time Show the game.

Here's a link to the Half Time Show if you missed it. Madonna rocked my world.

To start off, we munched on honey roasted peanuts and sipped on Strongbow.

First course: Boneless dry ribs with freshly squeezed lemon. Let the calorie intake begin.

Main course: Two kinds of Beaded Shrimp, Lemon Pepper and Dill Fish, Caesar Salad, Garlic Bread, and homemade Italien Pizza Bread.

And let's not forget....Heart Attack in a Pot

This is the BF's idea of a bowl for dipping in. Oh boy.
Dessert was cupcakes.

Filled with cookie dough.
Heaven help me.

Oh yeah....we made them festive for the occasion.

But it was absolutely delicious.

And well worth the calories.

Now excuse me while I go renew my gym membership.
