Stop right there, my friend, you are *seriously* missing out.
Check out these homemade oreos, and see what the whole point of making things at home is: they just taste better. And, by the way -- Deb's site: www.smittenkitchen.com is seriously the best food blogging out there. Stop by. And tell her I sent you. (A close second is Marc Matsumoto's www.norecipes.com -- also pretty spectacular.)
While these don't make up for being sad about my mom (she's not ill -- she lost her job), they do make for pretty awesome party favors for tomorrow night. Yes indeedy.
Don't worry. Pictures of the cake will be forthcoming. In the meantime, check out Eileen's site for a little more food porn.
