I used to LOVE Little Debbie’s Oatmeal Creme Pies, but these are better. This recipe is courtesy of G. Rich. Although, for the sake of full disclosure, I used a different recipe for the cookies since I was lacking in some of the ingredients. They were still delish.
Cookie Ingredients (makes 3 dozen cookies or 18 pies)
Cream Filling Ingredients (makes 1.5 cups)
Cream Filling Preparation
Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed until combined, scraping bowl. Beat on high until light and fluffy.Lastly, spread about a tablespoon of cream filling on flat side of one cookie, press 2nd cookie on top.
Natalie Portman has been really popular lately - she’s made like 19 movies in the past year (approximation only). Let’s go back to 2006, right after she had finished playing Padmé in the Star Wars prequels. Natalie got to host SNL that year, and, with the help of Andy Samberg, she provided us with this little gem. Enjoy.
As we all know, Osama Bin Laden was officially confirmed EKIA (Enemy Killed In Action) earlier this week - but do you know how ?
The New York Times released an AWESOME detailed article on the strategy and tactics used by the CIA, NSA, and Navy Seals in their reconnaissance and eventual top secret raid of the Bin Laden complex. Read NOW.
Once you read the article, you’ll understand the meaning of this post’s title. Hollywood should be all over this!
Also, I find it so cool that this is a picture of our leaders watching a live feed of the mission:
For those of you who don’t know, last year, I decided to participate in the Walk to Defeat ALS. With many of my friends’ and family’s help, I raised over $1500 and I hope to do that again this year. The walk is on May 14th in NYC, so if you’d like to donate, please do so by then!
If you’d like to donate, simply go to my personal page here and click “Donate to Andrew!” on the right side of the page.
For more information about ALS, read below…
Lou Gehrig’s Disease or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive, fatal neuromuscular disease that slowly robs the body of its ability to walk, speak, swallow and breathe. The life expectancy of an ALS patient averages 2 to 5 years from the time of diagnosis.
Every 90 minutes a person in this country is diagnosed with ALS and every 90 minutes another person will lose their battle against this disease. ALS occurs throughout the world with no racial, ethnic, or socioeconomic boundaries.
This crippling disease can strike anyone. Presently there is no known cause of the disease though support is bringing researchers closer to an answer. In the mean time it costs an average of $200,000 a year to provide the care ALS patients need.
Thanks in advance!
