Oreo Cookie Hacks!

Oreos are easily my favourite cookie... These recipes all sounds AMAZING! Can't wait to try them!

Food Truck legend Roy Choi's Midnight Hack combines his Midas touch with golden Oreo cookies to whip up some late night chicken tenders.

Oreo Midnight Hack
2 Boneless, skinless chicken breasts (1⁄4 inch thickness; about 1.5 lb.)
1 Cup (15 cookies) Golden Oreo cookies, wafers only
1 Cup all-purpose flour
2 Eggs, lightly beaten, with 1 tbsp of water added
1 Cup panko breadcrumbs
1 Cup chopped Italian flat-leaf parsley 
Kosher salt, fresh ground pepper 
Vegetable oil for frying (about 2 Cups)

1. Pulse cookies (wafer only) until fine
2. Mix cookie crumbs, panko and parsley in plastic bag. Season with salt and pepper
3. Coat chicken cutlets in flour and dip in beaten eggs
4. Add cutlets to cookie/breadcrumb mix and coat well
5. Heat oil in frying pan and fry breaded cutlets until cooked through (about 4 minutes per side).

All you need is a corner store, @Oreo cookies, & a half-baked idea to make a mind-blowing dessert. Learn from all-around hack master Starry Kitchen's Impulse Hack.

The making of the Jonathan Toews Canadian Tire Commercial

Sure this "We all play for Canada" commercial is pretty friggin cool. I was truly moved the first time I saw it.

But the "Making of" video is awesome...

Also, be sure to visit www.weallplayforcanada.ca and click on some of the people in the photo for heartwarming mini-documentaries on each them.

It is such cool campaign. Any hockey parent, coach or volunteer will appreciate how much this project must really mean to both the people in it and to Jonathan Toews himself.
