Chocolate Peanut Butter Cereal Milk Ice Cream of My Dreams

Things are happening, you guys. So, I don’t know if you cool folks follow me on Instagram, but if you do then you know that Friday was full of last day donuts, lattes, and pizza. It’s transition time, and I’m excited about it! New year, new job, new (to me) couch, new shoes, new ice cream flavor. Let’s look ahead, ok? Speaking of ice cream, this flavor is totally my current favorite. Not only is…

Saveur Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Well, I’m 29, you guys. I’ve turned into someone who analyzes smile lines (face wrankles) and is worried about the frump factor in my license photo. (But really, why did they make those photos bigger and way yellow-er in tone?) It was the wrong time to experiment with a center-part and I’m really considering a $60 night cream. Hashtag honesty hour. Cookies help though. These cookies are covered in smile lines and they’re total babes!…

Chocolate Crunch Bars

This week has had it’s ups and downs. Let’s focus on the ups though! Like the fact that I glittered every single finger nail and it turns out that this particular polish is better than any top coat ever! I painted them on Sunday and there’s no chip in sight! Last weekend, I totally picked up my girl Cindy’s couch to replace my super sad and ripped (but super-cute mid-century) couch. Turns out I forgot…

Chocolate North Pole Cake

While in my heart, I’m totes kinda grinchy, in my baked goods I’m totally Elf. I mean, the other day when I was eating waffles for dinner I totally thought that I might like maple syrup as much as that dude. (What am I saying?!) Anyhow, this cake is easy-breezy! A perfect Tuesday afternoon cake. So I totally recommend whipping this up to take to your boyfriend’s mom’s house or to your BFF’s aunt’s house…

Chocolate Chunk Cookie Bars

Well, it snowed here in Detroit. And it’s super cute until your car gets stuck. I guess I should probably leave my car in it’s parking spot until spring and spend all of my time baking cookie bar mountain towns for all the mini deer and trees in my life. It’s the only answer that makes sense, ya know? So come on over! I’ll make you sit by my pink christmas tree with a ¬†cookie…

Mississippi Mud Pie Brownie Ice Cream

The lovely Bev is having twins! Soon! So, let’s just say, that when I heard about this virtual baby shower, I knew I wanted in. You see, Bev is just lovely! And funny! And yay, she’s having twins! It’s pretty major! I was perusing recipes when I spotted these brownies on her site. I knew turning them into an ice cream would be just the thing to kick the massive chocolate cravings going on. I’m…

Scones Forever

Because breakfast wins best meal award*. (*Based on the dessert-as-a-meal-thing, obvz.) Because my countertops are covered with dishes and my bed is covered with laundry. Because my car seats are covered in sesame seeds from emergency bagel-ing on the regular. Because I’m good at running out of milk, cereal, bread for toasting, and general breakfast foods. Because I took a 2-hour nap Saturday and then ran out of daylight. Because my favorite cowboy boots are…

Dark Chocolate Oreo Blizzard Ice Cream

If I had a nickel for how every time I put a heart in a post, I’d have many nickels. I might be equally nickel-rich if applied to frozen chocolate. What can I say? I love love AND chocolate. Truth. This is that kind of chocolate ice cream that makes you swear there’s coffee in it, but there’s not. It’s also creamy and dreamy and filled with Oreos… I mean Joe-Joe’s. I’m the type of…

Chocolate Peanut Butter Whoopie Pies

I’m so lucky! My mom and sister, Laura, came to visit for the weekend. We went out for churros, strolled through Eastern Market and bought bouquets of flowers, and went out for sliders. My mom and I mixed up whoopie pie filling and fluffy pancake batter. My sister and I sipped Euro-beers and well, I’m just glad that I had these lovely ladies visiting this weekend. Sometimes you just need to be around people who…
