HapPy 100th Birthday to the Oreo!!

Today marks the 100th anniversary of americas favorite cookie. Two perfectly crisp chocolaty wafers sandwiched between their signature creme filling.

This Fall, Oreo is going to be hosting a multinational event in New York City. Attending the event will be selected Oreo ambassadors hailing from 13 different countries. Every “AmbassadOREO” will take a pledge where each of them will promise to continue the brand’s 100th birthday mission, spreading “childlike delight” throughout their communities.

Nabisco is celebrating The Oreo 100th Birthday by releasing a special edition Birthday cake Oreo Cookie.

I like to keep it original & enjoy my Oreos with milk.

But on this special occasion I think a Cookies N MilkShake is in order!

You'll need:

4 tsp. chocolate syrup
8 birthday cake OREO Cookies, divided
1-1/2 cups milk
2 cups BREYERS® All Natural Vanilla Ice Cream, softened

Make It
Spoon 1 tsp. syrup into each of 4 glasses. Roll each glass to coat bottom and inside of glass. Finely chop 4 cookies; set aside.
Quarter remaining cookies; place in blender. Add milk and ice cream; blend until smooth.
Pour into prepared glasses; top with chopped cookies. Serve immediately.

How do you enjoy Your Oreos?

Willie Nelsons Whiskey River•

Inspired by Willie Nelson's 1978 hit song. This small batch bourbon was made to willies tastes he wanted: smoothness, sweetness, smokiness & most importantly it had to be mellow, cuz he is a laid back Type of dude.
Will was in tour during the manufacturing & was sent samples to taste until Old Whiskey River bourbon was just perfect.
The outcome is 86 proof small batch bourbon, aged six years in new charred American oak barrels.
Mr. Nelson is committed to American farmers, his drink is made from corn,barley, and rye grown on independent family owned & operated farms.

The result is smooth an American original just like Willie himself

Crispy Spicy Lime wings

Hello fellow Foodies :)

Hope everyone is having a great week. Okay I thought it would be fitting to post a few Super Bowl approved recipes.
Wings are a must for any sports fan so I decided to add a flavorful twist & do spicy & sour wings. You can customize this recipe to whatever flavor you prefer by switching the seasoning & the sauce.... Yummmmmm

Okay so here we have Super Easy crispy Spicy Lime wings:

400 degree oven
1lb whole wings
2 limes
2tbs vegetable oil
Your favorite spicy or mild seasoning.To taste(I chose spicy salt & creole)
Radish sliced into coins
Hot sauce

Rinse & Pat chicken dry. Cut tips off. I prefer to leave the wing & drum connected. Mix oil & seasoning. Toss wings. Place on on a sheet pan squeeze half a lime on chicken, then place in a 400 degree oven. Bake for an hour. Squeezing on lime ever 20 minutes.

Serve with hot sauce,radish coins & fresh lime wedges!!

Enjoy Y'all


KiD Rocks Badass Beer!

Seems pretty natural that some one like kid rock would venture into a labor of love in the lager business. And if this brew is half as badass as the maker, we are in for some trouble.

"Its born out of bushels of American barley and hops harvested strait from the heartland. It's crafted with care in a place where factories mark one horizon and wild forests mark the next. This beers built with American pride. Pry one open and you'll know: there's trouble brewing. This is pure American BADASS."
Check out their website for a badass beer ;)

Bottoms up!

Banana Bee Oatmeal

This morning I whipped up a sweet little breakfast. Oatmeal is a great low calorie food, that adds high levels of fiber, low fat & high protein.

If you don't like oatmeal, try dressing it up with your favorite flavors. Add fruits, nuts or granola for great texture. Play around with the water oat ratio.

Today's combo is 1/2 cup of oats in 1cup of boiling water. Add a dash of cinnamon & 1Tbs of honey. Slice 1whole banana mix in. Top with a 1Tbs honey drizzle.
