Happy Birthday Katrina!
Thru the Bugs on my Windshield" (don't you LOVE that blog name?!) contacted me to see if we would be interested in doing something for Katrina's birthday. We agreed to make something, ship it to her, and blog about it on her birthday. So.....Here is to YOU Katrina! This is your special day and I hope we made it even more special by sending you something tangible (and edible, and not to forget - chocolate!)
Katrina blogs over at Baking and Boys. Way back in the beginning of my blogging days when I met Katrina, it was through Baking with Dorie. The fact we were both passionate about baking and she had boys was what attracted me to her blog....along with all those goodies she has on there! If you love to bake and you haven't been to her blog, then its a definite visit you need to make, and make often :)
I figured since Katrina is another foodie blogger I figured that even though it was her birthday, that she wouldn't mind if I sent her holiday themed food. The Oreo recipe was found on My Kitchen Addiction, a recipe shared with me by a young co-worker who made them herself and shared them with us at the office. I had such a hard time resisting them that I knew I had to make them. Since I could not leave them alone, I knew making them and sending them to Katrina was the thing to do. I know Katrina loves chocolate and I know she is not adverse to mint. So when I made the filling I used peppermint flavor instead of vanilla in the cream.
