Oreo Truffles: Fast & Easy Valentine's Treat

I'm sure none of us are strangers to Oreo Truffles. I first made these about 4 years ago when my oldest was in pre-school. They're the easiest sweet treat to make...ever. Think Cake Pops, only easier (man, don't get me started) and faster...and minus the whole pop part.

These are perfect for the last minute type of a person (me) who doesn't have the time or the desire to bake. Throw one in a cute cupcake liner filled with muddy buddy mix and you have an adorable class treat that looks way more impressive than it actually is.

Minestrone Soup {With Rice}

I'm the type of person who can eat soup for dinner and like it. I love when soup season arrives, but I always get groans of disappointment when I suggest soup for dinner, the family didn't even let me make cream of turkey soup after Thanksgiving this year. I don't know what their deal is, but sometimes the one who cooks the dinner gets to pick the dinner. So I did!
