Deep Fried Oreos Recipe

Okay, so I had no idea deep fried Oreos were even an option, until my mom mentioned something about carnival food. When she mentioned deep fried Oreos, I immediately searched the internet for different recipes. After pulling various ingredients and tips from different recipes, I think I was able to come up with the perfect recipe.

What You Need

Oreos (I used Oreo Thins but regular Oreos will work too)

Oil (olive oil, coconut oil or vegetable oil works)

Pancake Mix (Any brand will do, I used about 2 cups)

Vanilla Extract (1 tsp)

Egg (1)

Milk (1 cup, or as much as you need to make the batter smooth and thin).

Powdered Sugar (a couple tsp)

What You Do

First, mix the pancake batter, vanilla extract, egg and milk into a medium size bowl.

Next, place oil in a frying pan on a medium heat. Place enough oil to completely cover the bottom of the pan.

Once oil is heated in the pan, take your Oreos and dip them into the pancake batter. Then place Oreos in oil. After about a minute, flip Oreo to cook other side. Continue this process until you have enough Oreos of your choice.

Lastly, place Oreos on a plate and sprinkle some powdered sugar on top.


Friends, I’m not going to sugar coat it 😂. These Oreos are yummy but super rich and unhealthy. So don’t eat them all in one setting. Enjoy!

Homemade Stir-Fry Recipe

Homemade stir-fry is one of my favorite meals to make, because it’s so easy. Like many of the recipes I have shared, part of what makes it easy is that you can generally use vegetables and spices you already have at home.

Ingredients

Olive Oil (4 tablespoons)

Brown Sugar (1/3 Cup)

Thai or Asian Noodles (Ramen Noodles work too)

Soy Sauce (2 tablespoons)

Garlic (1/2 a clove)

Ground Ginger (3 Dashes)

Black Pepper (3 Dashes)

Oregano (3 Dashes)

Basil (3 Dashes)

Any Veggies of your choice! Ex: Celery, mushrooms, onion, peppers, carrots, broccoli, fresh cilantro etc.

What You Do…

1. First, fill a medium size saucepan of 2/3 of water and bring it to a boil. Once water is boiling, add noodles of your choice. My favorite kind of noodles to use are the Thai brand stir-fry noodles that can be found at Walmart.

2. Next, pull out a cutting board and chop any veggies you would like to include in the dish.

3. Put 2 tablespoons of olive oil into a frying pan and place on medium heat.

4. Add chopped up vegetables, and brown sugar to frying pan. Cook until veggies begin to turn brown and dark.

5. Once noodles are soft, remove from heat and drain noodles. Place noodles in a bowl.

6. Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil over noodles. Remove sautéed veggies from heat and place over noodles. Add additional spices including oregano, garlic, basil, ground ginger and black pepper. Add soy sauce, stir noodles and enjoy. 💕

Optional Tip: Feel free to add a protein to the stir-fry including chicken, pork, shrimp or tofu.

Additional Tip: it is VERY important to add both brown sugar and soy sauce. Not including one of these items will result in the dish being too sweet or too salty. Add both ingredients as needed for the perfect blend.

My Dining Room Reveal!

Hello Friends! Last weekend, I did something pretty cool. My husband and I bought a new dining room table from Walmart. It took us most of Sunday to put it together, but we finally did it! I’m super excited for you to see my dining room!

One of the first things we did after putting together the table and chairs, was putting together our bulletin board. For awhile now I have had a bulletin board, and a dry erase calendar. They both take up quite a bit of space on the wall, so I thought… why not combine them! This was a fun little DIY project I did by using materials I already had, and making it work for our family.

I am so impressed with how our dining room turned out, and how our apartment is coming together beautifully! I simply can’t wait to have Sunday morning breakfast and holiday meals in our new dining room. What room would you like to see next? Kitchen? Laundry Room? Balcony? Let me know! 💕

Our Christmas Tradition

Merry Christmas Eve Friends! I can’t believe it’s already the 24th of December. This month is flying by! Every Christmas my husband Charlie and I share a little Christmas tradition.

Have any of you ever seen the classic movie A Christmas Story? In my family, I was raised watching this movie every Christmas. It is an old and corky classic, that you can’t help but love. There are many scenes in this movie you might be familiar with, even if you haven’t watched the movie from beginning to end. For instance the dad cusses like a sailor, and the furnace is always malfunctioning. Or the youngest son in the movie gets wrapped in too many layers of snow gear by his mom, and is temporarily stuck in a T shaped position until he makes it to school. Or how about how the oldest son Ralphy is given a bright pink bunny suit from an auntie for Christmas… and later gets a BB gun and gets struck by an icicle. There are a lot of great scenes from this Christmas classic, and I don’t want to spoil it if you haven’t seen it. But my favorite part of the movie is when the neighbor’s Rottweilers stampede through the family kitchen and destroy Christmas dinner. It’s sad for only a moment, until the family decides to go out for Chinese food for Christmas dinner instead.

That is where our tradition got started. A few years ago, my parents and I would get Chinese food for Christmas dinner. When I married my husband in 2016, we continued the tradition. Sometimes we get Chinese food on Christmas Eve and sometimes on Christmas Day. It all really depends on when the Chinese restaurants close and how things play out each year. This year I have a feeling we will be enjoying our Chinese food tonight, and enjoy any leftovers on Christmas Day.


What are your Christmas traditions?


Merry Christmas Friends! I wish you all a safe and happy holiday
