We’re talking about brownies of course…..sheesh, dirty minds. Chocolate chip cookie dough, then a layer of oreos, topped off with a layer of brownie mix, bake in the oven and you have yourself some slutty brownies…mmmmm.
Now we cant take credit for this whorish delight, a friend of Jess’ posted the link to the recipe on Facebook and when we saw it we just couldn’t resist the temptation. In the past Jess and I have made some interesting cookie combinations, the best of which our friend Megan told us about. An oreo cookie wrapped in chocolate chip cookie dough and baked off just like chocolate chip cookies. They didn’t come out looking as good as the pictures online, but they sure were delicious. This new recipe just brings it to a whole new level.
Baked in a pan just like brownies but you start off by layering the bottom with chocolate chip cookie dough. Make the dough just as the package says but add a little bit more oil or water so the cookie dough is gooey enough to spread. Once the cookie dough is down cover the dough with a layer of oreos.
Once the oreos are down cover them with the brownie batter, make the batter just how the box says, it will come out perfect without and additions to the batter.
Throw the whole thing in the oven for 30-40 minutes at 350 and you have yourself some slutty brownies!
Now we are well aware that this is probably a one bite heart attack, but it is well worth the sacrifice. So when ours were done and cool, and a we cut a piece, this is what we got….
Unfortunately ours turned out less than perfect but still sinfully delicious. The brownie batter didn’t cook all the way through so ours were extra gooey, not that I’m complaining.
Slutty brownies…not a complete success, but not a total failure either. Definitely something to perfect.

We have been back to school, all settled into our apartment for about three weeks now and we were finally able to sit down and have our first meal together as roommates, plus one guest, tonight. No its not because the three of us havent been around at the the same time to make a meal together its simply because our stove wasn’t working until today.
We first discovered that the stove did not work two and a half weeks ago, yes you read correctly two and a half weeks ago, when I went to make Jess and myself some pancakes before class. Nothing fancy just the typical out of the box pancakes. I mixed up the batter, turned on the burner, put the batter in the pan……….and NOTHING. So I did the logical thing, smacked my hand down on the burner and sure enough, cold as ice, the same went for the other three burners on the stove top, nothing. Needless to say both Jess and myself were quite disappointed…no pancakes for us :(
When we finally realized it was a stove malfunction and not a brain malfunction, which can be common between the two of us, we reported it to our RA so she could put in the work order. Long story short, several semi-nasty email later the school did nothing to help us get our stove fixed so we could eat normal food like regular human beings. It took someone sent by the owners of the apartment complex, who was here to change a light bulb, to get the notice to the right people……20 minutes later the stove was up and running, the only thing wrong was a loose wire in the back. Go. Freakin. Figure.
So we decided to celebrate by making our first dinner together as a family. :)
On the menu for tonight, baked rotini with chicken and bacon….delish!!!! And its so simple to make, although when you are easily distracted like we are, it took a little while, but if you multi task and cook everything at the same time like we didn’t, it would totally be a Rachel Ray worthy 30 minute meal. Here is how it goes:
Step 1: fry the bacon, and as tempted as you may be don’t eat it! Once its all cooked and drained, cut it up into bite sized pieces and set it aside. (no snacking allowed, you will want to save the room for dinner)
Step 2: prep the chicken. we used whole chicken breasts, and rubbed in premixed chicken seasoning and a dash of chili powder for a little extra kick. Then pan fry the chicken, we just threw it in the same pan that we used to cook the bacon in. Once the chicken is cooked through, cut it up into bite sized pieces just like the bacon and set that aside too, keep in mind that you can do this in multiple pans simultaneously so it wont take as much time.
Step 3: while you are cooking and cutting up the bacon and chicken start boiling water to cook your pasta in. We cooked a 1lb box of rotini and it made plenty to feed four and there are leftovers, so just uses however much you feel necessary. Certainly don’t cook the whole box if you are cooking for one, because by the sixth day of eating this you will be sick of it.
Step 4: once the pasta is drained put it back in the pot you cooked it in, it makes for a great mixing bowl, but really it just eliminates one dish that you now dont have to clean. Throw the bacon and the chicken in with the pasta and add enough alfredo sauce so its not dry but not super saturated with sauce either. Mix it all up good and then dump it into a casserole pan. Load the top with cheese, lost and lots of cheese….we used shredded mozzarella, but use whatever you have on hand or whatever tickles your taste buds. Pop it in the oven at 350ish and bake until the cheese is bubbly, gooey, and slightly golden brown.
Dig in and enjoy! If you are cooking for quite a few people it wont last long so make sure you get yours, or you will be sorry. Jess and I are definitely excited for lunch tomorrow because it was just that good.
Now that our stove is fixed there will definitely be more stories and snacks for you to enjoy, so check back in because you never know what we might stumbleupon.

Ok so most of you have probably heard of stumbleupon.com and if you havent check it out, (just an fyi its addicting) this is how we came up with our idea to start our own blog, even if no one ever really reads it. Both me (Kayla) and Jess really enjoy food, whether its going out to a new place to eat, ordering food in, or creating our own concoctions in our currently non-functional kitchen……see later post for more details……we have a BLAST!
And so begins our first adventure…
Jess and I spend most of our nights, when we aren’t doing homework of course ;) stumbling away and quietly giggling to ourselves when we come across something funny. Tonight we were both laying in bed, stumbling to our hearts content when I found the most genius thing ever….a peanut butter cake that you can make in the microwave in less than three minutes, sounds crazy we know but it actually works!
The avid foodies that we are, we literally jump out of bed and run to our semi-functional kitchen, keep in mind that this is at 12:00 in the morning. There are only 5 common, or easy to get, ingredients in this cake and 2 ingredients in the quick and simple frosting. Here is how it goes: ( by the way this recipe makes an individual cake)
We dug through our cupboards, got out the flour and sugar, we used regular white sugar instead of brown sugar (no we are not racist we just didn’t have any brown sugar), baking powder, and peanut butter. Then we went to the fridge to get the only two other ingredients we needed, milk and eggs……the milk we had, however the fridge was a litte too cold and apparently froze our eggs solid, was this a problem for us? NOPE! a quick trip to good old google said frozen eggs which have been thawed out are good for baking, not so good for scrambling. Once the eggs were back to normal, we then proceded with the making of our microwaveable cakes.
We mixed together all the ingredients to make the cake and poured the batter into coffe mugs, put them in the microwave and set it to cook for a minute and a half…..no joke 90 seconds is all it takes. Mix up the frosting, throw it on top and voila! you have yourself a 3 minute cake.
While devouring our mini cakes, stumbling away of course, we came across some more food related sites with more delicious and delectable treats. This is when I had my genius idea…..”Jess i want a blog, we should write one.” “but what are we going to write about?” So this is what we came up with……a blog about all the foods we love, the new things we create, and the memories we make.
