homemade oreos

i think we might have a recipe on here for these already, and i've always tried to figure out the yummiest one... i think i finally found it!! don't ask me why i was inspired to do yellow and teal frosting... it was just the mood i was in ok? i'm not even the biggest fan of these cookies but THESE ONES are IT!
1 box fudge chocolate cake mix
1/2 C. veg. oil
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
{mix all of these ingredients together and bake for 8 min. at 375. cool completely and then sandwich frost with...}
3 C. powdered sugar
1/3 C. soft butter
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
2 T. milk
{mix the powdered sugar and butter, then mix in the vanilla and milk. beat until smooth. oh and please color according to your mood. ;)}


ok as the official "starter" of this fabulous food blog, i think it's time i make a little challenge to all our contributors out there (jen/liz/jam/mer). i'm going to start a little
september weekly recipe challenge!

it's hard saying goodbye to summer, but now that we are getting back into the routines of school/work maybe we can get back into the routine of cooking! hello! i know i do much better in the fall/winter. something about being stuck inside...
so. here are the official rules:

1. each week will be a new "genre" to contribute a recipe to. (i.e.: dinner, dessert, appetizer)

2. each contributor needs to really really try (just kidding... this is totally MANDATORY) to add just ONE new recipe to this genre. try and keep them super simple so we can make them! i don't care if you get them from yahoo foods... just share!
3. throughout the month of september you need to try making all the recipes at least ONCE so you can VOTE!
here comes the fun part...

4. by the end of the month you get to vote for your favorite recipe from each genre (i'll make a poll on the sidebar). you can NOT vote for yourself. and whoever is the winner will be treated to dinner (split by the rest of us) at a girls night out! sound good? please tell me you're all in! i need some serious spice in my life... you know what i mean.

*so that's 4 votes a person

*i realize it's a lot of recipes to try, but only 4 dinners, 4 desserts, 4 something and 4 something isn't too much to handle in 30 days right?

let the recipe sharing begin!
