Video you ask? What video? The one you can watch if you CLICK HERE and head over to the Kraft recipe website. You can also get all the nutritional info there, as well. Speaking of school bake sales, Annie Simmons Donaldson tried these cupcakes and they were a hit with her “boys”–son Cody and mate Sean “Boomer” Donaldson. You can read their story in WOLF MOON. Click on the cover for the Amazon link. Better yet, CLICK HERE for the universal link to MOONSTRUCK: LIES and get both HUNTER’S MOON, WOLF MOON, along with extra chapters only available in LIES. 😉 Psst: That link takes you to a page listing every outlet where you can buy the book.

So, question of the day: How do you eat an Oreo? Me? I bite into the whole thing. Lawyer Guy twists them apart and eats the cream first.

  1. I generally pop them apart and eat the cream. Or I pop them apart and eat the naked half, then the cream, then the other half. But the cookie part of Oreos are too bitter for me. Wallyworld makes a good offbrand that’s not as in your face. And the thin ones are the best. Yummers.

    Heh, I can totally see Boomer pop one of those cupcakes in his mouth and then blow something up. Woohoo.
