Lets take a trip down memory lane.
So you guys know the movie The Parent Trap, right? The 1998 one with cute little Lindsey Lohan. You know when she was still cute and innocent, before Hollywood reeled her in.
Well for some reason when I was hiking on Sunday morning I thought of this movie. Honestly, I have no idea why this movie popped into my thoughts, but it did. Maybe it was the seriously frigid temps we have been experiencing in the early mornings (hello -18, you kind of stink!) or my sleep deprivation kicking in, or maybe a combination of the two. Who knows!
What ever the reason I’m sure glad it did.
My whole hike I had been racking my brain, trying to come up with different recipes to share with you guys. See, sometimes I have a whole list of things that I want to make for the blog and I am set for weeks. Other times I just don’t have a clue! Like my brain just kind of fizzles out.
It can be rather frustrating!
This is when The Parent Trap popped into me head and the light bulb went off!
Remember the scene when the girls (Hallie and Annie) are sitting in their cabin and break out the Oreos…….. and then break out the peanut butter……and then proceed to dip the Oreos in the peanut butter? Genius? Absolutely!
Come one admit it, you totally did this when you were younger (lets not lie, you still do).
So, first you whip up some homemade Oreos, which alone are just pretty amazing. Then comes the peanut butter. Now technically these are not dipped in peanut butter they are sandwiched with peanut butter, but I just like “dipped” in the name. It was my original idea, but sandwiching was just more practical.
Once Asher got her hands on one I asked her if they tasted like Oreos. Her answer, “They’re better than Oreos.”
