Chocolate Whoopie Pies with Marshmallow Cream Filling. Oh Whoopie Pies, you've been on my husbands mind.... for the last 6 months.
Remember a couple of weeks ago when I made the Pecan Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies and I said I would be devoting the week to those recipe requests my husband has asked for countless times that have fallen to the bottom of my list? Well, these whoopie pies have been craved by my husband far longer than those cookies and should have been at the top of my list. I started hearing about whoopie pies around the holidays when our friend, Corinne, brought them over for dinner. They were delicious... and ever since then Parrish has been asking me for more.

The place that started it all was a local Chinese buffet here in Michigan. After frequent visits to the buffet over the years, I finally decided to take a stab at cooking my own Chinese dishes at home. The majority of the dishes were delicious and I began cooking different Chinese meals every week, but I had always wanted more variety just like the buffet. I had always wondered, “what if I could create a Chinese buffet at home?”
I have wanted to do this for along time so I was very excited when I was chosen to be part of the 24,24,24 event presented by Foodbuzz. In this article I will explain how to create your own Chinese buffet at home. The Menu:Main course- Sesame Chicken Orange Chicken Kung Pao Chicken Meat on a Stick (Chicken Skewers)Appetizers- Crab Rangoons Egg RollsSide Dishes- Garlic Green Beans Fried Rice Egg Drop SoupDessert- Buffet Style Doughnuts The Recipes: Sesame Chicken- Cooking Instructions: Orange Chicken- Baked Eggs with Bacon and Spinach. Do y’all remember the scene in Runaway Bride (that’s an Oscar contender if I’ve ever seen one…) where Julia Roberts realizes that she doesn’t know how she likes her eggs?
You know, because she’s always turning herself into the girl that the guy she’s marrying wants to be with? Yeah. That’s not me. I know how I like my eggs, although I will say that it depends on the day. If it’s a scrambled kind of day then I want them scrambled with NO MILK, a tab of butter, and salt and pepper. Hey, I’m an independent woman…throw your hands up at me.
Now that we’ve established my egg-eating habits, though, I have to say – baked eggs are kind of amazing, an unexpected new love in my egg-eating life. Serves 2, but this can be split in half easily to make them in small individual ramekins. 4 whole eggs3-4 slices thick-cut bacon, cooked and chopped1/2 cup loosely packed spinach2 Tbsp cream2 Tbsp butter, meltedsalt and pepper to taste1/4 tsp thyme Preheat oven to 375. So now it’s your turn – egg fan? Get your cook on.
