This weekend I retrieved my 1989 Snoopy ice cream maker from my Mom’s house. Aside from orthodontics, this is the most important investment from my childhood.
Does it still work? Like a champ.
And since I was able to maneuver this delightful apparatus as a wee child, I am quite confident I’ll be able to make even better frosty treats as a quasi-adult.
It’s happening this weekend, stay tuned.
No seriously, will someone bring these to my cubicle tomorrow morning? Say, around 10:30?
Bless the gal who had the creative dessert genius to envision such a delightful concoction – and double bless all the folks who put this on Pinterest so I could find it. In case you can’t see past your drool to thoroughly inspect the image below, these are tri-layer brownies, that include an oreo middle and chocolate chip cookie base.
And the name? Slutty Brownies. I swoon. Here’s the recipe…
It will be a special day in the not-so-distant future when these are created in my kitchen. And what a day that will be.
I love frosting. Love it. It’s the best part of any confection and a necessary compliment to a quality baked good.
And I don’t discriminate, either. No — I’ll eat it on graham crackers, pretzels or straight from the container with a spoon.
dentists people might shudder at the thought of feasting upon such a sweet treat, but those who really know what matters in life are silently high-fiving me as they read this, because we frosting aficionados are a particularly elite breed.
So can you imagine my immense joy when, while wandering through Boston, I discovered a cupcake bakery that offers frosting shots for a mere 50 cents?
JUST 50 CENTS, PEOPLE! For a beautiful and perfectly sized dose of sugary goodness.
Cheers to that!
We had no plans on 4th of July and it rained all day…but I really wanted to make a patriotic cake. So we had a party.
being sick = cabin fever = baking
Today was the first time I’ve ever celebrated Flag Day or the Army’s birthday – I got a dose of both in a ceremony at work.
I have to say the entire thing was pretty moving, and gave me a new respect for how members of our military view holidays that many of us see as a day off.
I’m glad to have the perspective, and go figure, they had cake…
