Hellloooooo weekend!

We have dipped into cool temperatures and I am loving every second of it! Walking the dogs in long sleeves or a fleece? Yes, yes, yes!

How are things where you are? Tell me what you’ve been up to and how you’ve been.

On Brown Eyed Baker This Week

Ultimate Oreo Cake – The ultimate Oreo cake! Triple layer chocolate cake, cookies and cream filling, chocolate fudge frosting, and white chocolate glaze. Then garnished with more chocolate frosting Oreo cookies.

Three layer Oreo cake with a slice taken out.

How to Make Vanilla Extract – This homemade vanilla extract is made from just two ingredients (vanilla beans and vodka) and takes less than 10 minutes to prepare. Let it sit for at least one month (longer is better!) and it’ll be ready to use for baking or to give as a gift.

Glass bottle of homemade vanilla extract.
