I'll let you in a little revelation about my favorite usernames in my virtual sites. First is about my Mikimoto Angel pen name. Mikimoto is a famous brand of pearl accessories in America. I first saw that brand in Vogue Magazine. I got mesmerized by that label, and I thought of using it. I just added Angel from my name "Angela". Thus, the formation of Mikimoto Angel.For my other pen name Mystic Nymph, the word mystic really came from the show Mystic Knights of Tir Na Nog. I used to be so hooked to that show. I am also obsessed with mythologies, and nymphs are mythical creatures depicted as beautiful young women who are considered as guardians of objects and places in nature. Thus, the evolution of Mystic Nymph.

Mama Bet's Cook Book: Oreo Truffles
One of the desserts that Mom does for us on a regular basis is her Oreo Truffles. She knew about it when she was scanning through Laureen Uy's blog Break My Style. You can read her post about it in this link. Laureen got hers as a gift from SweeTetite. Curiosity got the best of my Mom, so she searched for the recipe.
Mom used the following:
1 pkg. of PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese (softened)
3 packs of 137g Oreo Cookies (finely crushed)
Deutche or Goya Chocolate Buttons for coating (melted)
Mom mixed the softened cream cheese and finely crushed cookie crumbs. Then she shaped them into I inch balls; dipped them in melted chocolate; and placed them on paper baking sheet. She refrigerated them until they become firm. Mom would prefer using brown sheets, except that she couldn't find some at NCCC Mall. They only have white and some colored ones. She just recently discovered that Gaisano Mall Supermarket has complete baking materials and ingredients. Without further ado, here's the finished product. Pardon me for the hazy and noisy photos. They were taken using a 2 Megapixel Camera Phone only.
They taste oh so divine! My friends who have tasted this dessert said it's not nakakaumay, and I can attest to that (Sorry but I don't know the direct English translation of the italicized word. Buzz me if you know the answer). We also made fun of the packaging by sticking the logo I made for my Mom's future business. How I wish her dream would come true in an instant. I will definitely pray for that, and I hope you do too.
Will you make your own Oreo Truffles now? I hope this post has helped you in its own little way. Much love!
