Homemade Oreos

Homemade Oreos
Fact #1: I made Oreos. I didn’t think it was possible, either. Fact #2: They tasted just like the real ones.. on crack. So much better. So. Much. Fact #3: They are extraordinarily better for your body than those blue plastic wrapped gems. Fact #4: You will become 700 times more popular if you bring a batch of these to school/work/anywhere else where humans congregate. Sorry about all the paparazzi. Falling short in the friends department? Just kidding.. obviously Oreos.

Creatively Domestic To go along with my Blueberry Boy Bait from last week, here's another way to use up the 8 pounds of frozen blueberries that are keeping my freezer running efficiently! My Grandma used to make blueberry muffins for breakfast when we would stay overnight at her house when I was growing up. I always thought it was the greatest treat to have muffins fresh from the oven for breakfast, as my mom never made muffins that early in the morning - we always reheated them in the microwave if we wanted warm muffins for breakfast.
