Arroz con Pollo -- Blech! And the most delicious dessert ever!

What more can I say. Blech! This recipe for Arroz Con Pollo was awful. So awful that my nephew ended up having a bad dream about it where he was being forced to eat it for dinner again another night! And he's a college student with a cast iron stomach who is happy anytime he doesn't have to eat in the cafeteria!

This recipe was so bad I'm not even gonna tell you where I found it. Yuck!

Since that recipe was an epic fail, instead, I'll give you a recipe for the most delicious thing I've tried lately: Oreo Cookie Balls. My sister brought these to the dinner party last weekend and they were amazing (though not very good for the diet!)

Easy Oreo Truffles
Recipe from Kraft Foods

1 pkg. (1 lb. 2 oz.) OREO Cookies, finely crushed, divided
1 pkg. (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
2 pkg. (8 squares each) Semi-Sweet Chocolate or white chocolate, melted

MIX 3 cups of the cookie crumbs and the cream cheese until well blended. Shape into 42 (1-inch) balls.

DIP balls in melted chocolate; place on waxed paper-covered baking sheet. (Any leftover melted chocolate can be stored in tightly covered container at room temperature and saved for another use.) Sprinkle with remaining cookie crumbs or drizzle with white chocolate.

REFRIGERATE 1 hour or until firm. Store any leftover truffles in tightly covered container in refrigerator.
