Oreo and Biscoff Muffins

Oreo and Biscoff Muffins

I made this over the weekend.  I was so excited to cut into it for breakfast the next morning too.  When I took a bite out of it the next day, it was mush.  Funny how it looked fabulous when it came out of the oven.  What happened here?! Cakes aren’t supposed to have a soggy and wet texture! I was sooooo disappointed I was going to chuck it in the trash.  There goes a wasted day.  Chris, however, liked it.  He said it tasted like a bread pudding.  I rolled my eyes.  He ended up taking it with him to work to share.  I was somewhat embarrassed but whatever!

Oreo and Nutella Brownie Bites

Oreo and Nutella Brownie Bites

Happy Friday! I hope everyone had a good week.  Chris and I are doing some tree removal/fence work in our yard.  Earlier this week we had nine large Pittosporums removed.  It was chaotic and noisy but worth it.  We now have a lot more sun light coming through our kitchen/dining room area.  More
sun light = better photos.  Hooray!

Next week the tree guys will be out here grinding down the stumps.  Then we’ll have our new fence built —can’t wait! We’ve been fenceless for several days now and it’s weird when there’s no barrier and people can look/walk in.

Anyway, today’s recipe requires no introduction.  It’s chocolate-y and it’s Nutella.  Need I say more? Enjoy your weekend lovelies!

Oreo Chocolate Chip Cookie Nutella Brownie Bites

Oreo Chocolate Chip Cookie Nutella Brownie Bites

I can’t believe it’s Friday and the last day of May today.  Time sure flies… And because it’s Friday, I think everyone deserves to end the work week/month with a little something sweet and decadent.

Now to all you Oreo, chocolate chip cookie, Nutella and brownie fans.  If you like either one of these or all then you’re in for a treat.  These brownie bites are little bites of heaven! You have the cookie dough on the bottom and Nutella brownie batter on top.  Then the Oreo cookie in the center, all in one little package.  YUM! Doesn’t that sound good? Don’t you just want to bite into one? Now march into the kitchen and bake some.  You’ll be happy that you did.  Happy Friday!

Oreo White Chocolate Chip Blondies

Oreo White Chocolate Chip Blondies

My first attempt at making scones yesterday failed miserably.  Not only was it unappealing, it was a bit on the dry side.  There’s something about baking where you have to knead and/or shape the actual dough that frightens me.  I’m sure I will eventually take another stab at it but it won’t be anytime soon.

So this morning, I was back in the kitchen again.  I wanted to bake for Hanna, my Massage Therapist who has been working with me on my back pain issues.  She has been such a tremendous help that I wanted to thank her.  I was so relieved that these blondies turned out so well! After yesterday’s kitchen faux pas, I was a bit worried.  So if you’re hankering for something sweet and if you like Oreos (who doesn’t?), you’ll love these!
