this original Robbi Behr illustration.

So I bid as high as I could without Mark getting mad at me for spending my dollars on more things that can’t fit on the walls of our current home. We already have two lovely prints –one, mind you, was purchased by Mr. Mark and NOT me!– a few paintings, too many photographs, and all kinds of artworks in storage waiting for a home on the larger walls of a future chez Robertson.

Fingers crossed I will be the winner!  I love the little house.  On top of the big hill.  Would that all things align themselves so that Mark and Gordo and I could live in a little house atop a big hill looking over a cool blue river and be at peace with the world.  We would eat pizzas and chocolates and play games and sing songs and write blogs. And to save ourselves from a “treacherous fall” on our way down to collect our weekly supply of pizzas and chocolates, we would bushwhack a little path that winds its way in a spiral down the hill.

Anyhoo, not only do I happen to like this particular piece, but I also thoroughly enjoy winning.  So alas if I do not win, I will have to wait and bid again on one of Robbi’s cute animals, which we readers of Idiots’Books have been promised in the next auction.

Mmmm Balls

Here is the recipe for MMMM… Balls!

It’s super easy.

AAAAND… you shouldn’t tell people this fact because they taste WAY more complex and WAY more than really what they are.

THREE ingredients:

(1)  2 packages oreo cookies
(2) 2 packages cream cheese (you can use both regular or one reg and one low fat)
(3) 2 packages chocolate chips (whatever kind you like–dark, semi, milk, white)

Step 1: Use cuisinart or blender to chop oreos into something that resembles dirt.

Step 2: Put cream cheese into a bowl and mix until soft and creamy (I used a stand mixer, but a regular hand mixer would work if you let the cream cheese get soft at room temp. first).

Step 3: Add the oreo dirt mixture to the cream cheese and mix until you get a mixture that resembles mud.

Steps 4 & 5: Turn out mixture in 1″ balls onto a lined cookie sheet.  Refrigerate for 30 mins to an hour.  While they’re in the fridge, melt your chocolate in a double boiler (pan with 1-2 inches of water to boil with a metal or glass bowl on top).

Step 6: Dip your cold balls into the hot chocolate and put back on the lined cookie sheet.

Step 7: Refrigerate or freeze until ready to serve.

Keep extras (there won’t be many!) in a tupperware container for up to a week (they won’t last long)
