Please help me find a particular blog

  • 6

I'm looking for a blog that I ran across last year and have searched for it exhaustively, but haven't come up with anything yet.

Here's everything I remember:

- The entire blog is dedicated to duplicating store-bought snack foods (like Oreos, Twinkies, Reese's Cups, etc.) at home. But, unlike many other's goals, the goal of this blog is to truly duplicate every single aspect of the food rather than trying to make it better tasting or textured or healthier.

- The blog is by a woman and, I'm almost positive, a man as well - both younger, around 30 years old give or take five years.

- The particular blog entry that caught my was on making homemade Oreos.

- She talked about decorating the homemade Oreos with filagree to approximate the look of the store-bought Oreo.

Past that, I've come up dry.

Please help me find this blog as she (she is who wrote the entry for the Oreos) used very scientific and exhaustive methods to duplicate these store-bought foods and I'd really like to plug back into this blog.

        BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        That's it!!! I don't know how you did it, but you did it!

        As soon as I clicked the link you posted, I remembered that I found the Fauxreos recipe through the Serious Eats website.

        After clicking the link you posted, I clicked a couple more links and found the actual blog I was looking for! Here it is:

        http://bravetart.com/recipes/FauxreosGF

        Again, THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! I consider myself pretty darn good at finding things on the net and have been looking for that website for the longest time, but I honestly don't think I would have found that without your help!

        THANK YOU!!!!!

            Yes! With major thanks to devilishlyj! Thus satisfying my months long search.

            I love your objective (replicating rather than improving or changing in some manner) and the methodical approach you take to achieving this objective. Great job!
