recipe: dipped chocolate cookie bites

This year, one of America’s favorite cookies—more than 7.5 billions Oreos are consumed every day—celebrates its 100th Birthday. Congratulations!

18 oz Oreo cookies
8 oz cream cheese
12 oz white chocolate chips
1 tbsp butter
double boiler or microwave

1. Crush the package of cookies and set aside.

2. Mix the cream cheese in a mixer until fluffy, then add cookie crumbs and mix until well blended.

3. Roll the ‘dough’ into 1” balls, place on wax paper and freeze for 2 hours.

4. In a double boiler—or microwave on 50% power and stirring every 30 seconds—melt the butter and chocolate chips.

5. Dunk the balls in the warm chocolate, allow the shell to cool and enjoy!

Special thanks to anna, product manager’s assistant, for contributing.


recipe: lucky leprechaun

3 oz lemonade, or sour mix
1-1/2 oz vodka
1 oz limoncello
1/2 oz Jameson Irish Whiskey
1 tsp simple syrup
a squeeze of a lemon
a drop of green Crème de Menthe
garnish with good luck

1. Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker filled with ice.
2. Shake until it’s so cold you can’t hold onto the shaker—when it gets frosty on the outside.
3. Strain into a martini glass and garnish—with a four-leaf clover if you’ve got one.


happy new year!

Best wishes for a happy, healthy, and prosperous New Year, from all of us at CB2.


how to: set four unique tables

For a bright brunch, focus on cheerful colors and personalized elements. Wrapping paper makes a low-cost, high impact table cover and a travel mug doubles as a placecard. Live greens, sliced branches, and organic shapes recreate a natural habitat. Small plants can be less expensive than a fresh flower centerpiece while lasting longer—and push the envelope with eco wood bath mats as the table cover. Mix different styles, textures and period references to add interest. The labra candleholder is perfect to set the tone of this modern baroque table—especially when contrasted with angular white porcelain plates and a rich red bouquet. Mix different shapes, materials and finishes in shades of grey. It creates an urban, sophisticated look and becomes the ultimate blank canvas which can accommodate a variety of layers for a unique setting.

Thanks to stylist and photographer Bobbi Lin for setting these four tables featured at central.
