Here’s a festive way that you can create blondies using Oreo’s seasonal flavored cookie, Gingerbread! Out of all of the variety of Oreo’s such as mint, raspberry, fudge, vanilla, etc., I am absolutely in love with the Gingerbread Oreo cookie <3Happy Eating~ 🙂

So today, I had my first offical day at work at the well-known local bakery in my area. It felt really good to be able to be trusted by the owner and the manager of the bakery as they allowed me to go right into the kitchen and work on decorating cakes. Since the owner had seen that I have experience with a professional kitchen because of my tech school, they let me work in the back where all of the “magic” happens. However, although it is fun, it was not easy. Walking out of the shop, people might have thought that I had been in a food fight because of all of the icing stains on my apron…piping little designs on about 200 petitfours, my fingers were already getting cramped after the first 30. Anyways, my six hour shift seem to fly by pretty quickly since it was a workplace where I felt comfortable with and had the most fun in. It felt really good to accomplish something that I had always wanted to do. To work in a real food industry buisness. 

What accomplishment had you finished that you felt good about?
