Goodbye For Now

Black and White Overo Paint Mare Goodbye For NowIf you follow Horses & Heels regularly and subscribe to my weekly emails, you might have heard me mention some talk about moving. I’ve kept it relatively quiet but it’s time to let the news out of the bag, I will be relocating to New York City at the end of the month. It’s a really good and bad feeling all at once – my husband has taken a job there and so everyone else in the family is following him there, almost everyone. My inner fashion compass and the “Heels” part of this blog is very excited but the “Horses” part of me is horrified (and very scared of public transportation).

Rumor will be heading to North Carolina this week to go live the next year with my friend Ashley, who will be leasing her. Where the road takes us after that, I’m not sure but it’s going to be an adventure for everyone involved. Ashley is a horse lover, marketing whiz by day and a blogger in between who runs a site called The North Carolina Cowgirl. These past years with Rumor have been great and she has proven herself to be a very loyal and consistent barrel and pole horse. I truly hope Ashley enjoys Rumor as much as I have and that these two really click. And of course I do get to come visit so that will be fun.

Naturally I had to take some glamour shots of my girl this weekend and wanted to share them here. It was a very cold day and Rumor wasn’t her cleanest so I just decided to filter my photos with black and white to hide the dirt ; ).

Peanut Butter Oreo Truffles

Peanut Butter Oreo Truffles with Colorful Sprinkles Peanut Butter Oreo TrufflesA guilty pleasure of mine is an Oreo with a spoonful of peanut butter on top (please don’t tell me how many calories that involves)  but this little dessert might be even better than that. I made these truffles for a weekend baby shower and they were a hit, with just three ingredients (four if you count the sprinkles) these are something that anyone can make.

Peanut Butter Oreos + Cream Cheese + Milk Chocolate = Peanut Butter Oreo Truffles. This recipe is adapted from Kraft Recipes from the original Oreo Truffles.

Peanut Butter Oreo Truffles with Sprinkles Peanut Butter Oreo TrufflesThe inside of the truffle is rich and creamy like a super moist brownie or a piece of cheesecake.

Peanut Butter Oreo Truffles

Rating: 51

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 2 hours

Total Time: 2 hours, 20 minutes

Yield: 30 - 40 Truffles

Peanut Butter Oreo Truffles with Colorful Sprinkles Peanut Butter Oreo Truffles

Easy three ingredient Peanut Butter Oreo Truffles.

Ingredients

  1. 1 package of Peanut Butter Oreos
  2. 1 8 ounce package of cream cheese, softened
  3. 1 24 ounce package of milk chocolate chips (you won't use the whole package)
  4. *Optional but encouraged - sprinkles

Instructions

  1. Mash up the Oreos in a large bowl or your blender. I liked having some pieces of Oreos in my truffles so I just used a rolling pin to smash them up.
  2. Mix in the cream cheese and stir until everything is completely blended. You could use a mixer if you have one as well.
  3. Line a tray with parchment paper and roll the mixture into small balls - you will get 30 - 40 depending on size.
  4. Place them in the freezer for at least an hour so the center freezes completely.
  5. Melt half of the chocolate chips in a tall microwave safe bowl, I like to microwave in 30 second increments and stirring in between until the chips are melted.
  6. Drop the frozen cookie balls in the chocolate and covered completely. Use a fork to pick them up and allow the excess chocolate to drip off, tapping the fork on the side of the bowl.
  7. Place the chocolate coated truffle back on the tray and drop sprinkles on top immediately.
  8. Repeat this process until you are done, you may need to melt some more chocolate during this time.
  9. Place the truffles in the fridge for an hour before serving or transferring them to an air tight plastic container and keep them in the fridge until they can be enjoyed.

DIY: Silver and White Pumpkins

Cowboy Boot and Initial Studded Pumpkins by Horses Heels DIY: Silver and White Pumpkins

Happy Fall Y’all! There are so many ways to decorate pumpkins and I wanted to share mine, they are Horses & Heels themed naturally. I wanted to decorate but knew I wouldn’t be into carving so I opted for a little paint and some silver studs.

Take some inspiration from my pumpkins and decorate your own this weekend.

DIY Studded Initial Pumpkin and Cowboy Boot Pumpkin DIY: Silver and White Pumpkins

Supplies Needed:

White Paint (I used Martha Stewart Vintage Décor Pain in Ivory)

Silver Paint

Paint brushes

Assorted silver studs – you can find these at a craft store or order them online.

* A little creativity.

I painted three coats of Martha Stewart’s paint on the pumpkins and allowed them to dry completely. Then I painted the stems of the pumpkins with a little silver, I allowed some of the green to show through for a rustic feel. I drew two H’s with a pencil and followed the lines to stud the pumpkins. You can do any set of initials this way and it’s such a nice way to create a big impact.

Now for the silver cowboy boots, I had my mom paint those on for me free hand and she did a great job.

Don’t mind her hair right now, it’s somewhere between outgrowing her summer hair cut and preparing for winter. I cannot wait for this little pup to get her fluffy coat back!
